The title of the movie was taken from a popular saying "in like Flynn", referring to the actor Errol Flynn's womanizing. Thus, "in like Flynn," refers to a man's quickly successful sexual escapades. See more »
When Flint is breaking free of the cryogenic chamber with the sonic device, you can see the "cracks" in the glass as well as the wire to pull the glass when it "breaks". See more »
Basically another in the endless series of Bond-knockoffs of the late 60's, the second Flynt movie (for some reason I keep missing the first one) is fun enough as a semi-parody. It's nowhere nearly as offensive/dumb as the Matt Helm stuff. Coburn makes a decent superman spy, although his lanky physique makes him look rather ungainly in the fight sequences (only Ted Danson looks more awkward). It's your basic Cold War type movie with some women who want to rule the world (and *oh the humanity* are betrayed by the military man they put their trust in, played by a fiendish Steve Inhat) tossed in.
