As the fake President begins to crack up and rave, he shouts the warning, "Don't let them fluoridate your water!" This is a nod to the ravings of the mad General Jack D. Ripper in Dr. Strangelove and his warning about fluoridated water being a communist plot. See more »

An actor? As president?

Well it looks like I'm in a minority with this one as I think 'In Like Flint' is better than 'Our Man Flint'! It's goofier than the original and for me that makes it more entertaining. It's filled with silly stuff like exploding golf balls, brainwashing via hairdryers, Flint talking fluent dolphin and Lee J. Cobb in drag. It's similar in approach to the 'Batman' TV series (Yvonne "Batgirl" Craig even appears as a Russian ballerina) so if you enjoy that show, and yes, Austin Powers, you'll have lots of fun.
