At one point Flint says "An actor? As President?" When this film came out, actor Ronald Reagan - who would in fact later become President - had just been elected Governor of California, and actor George Murphy was two years into his term as a US Senator from California. So actors seeking high political office were very much a topic of the day. See more »

"In Like Flint" is a sequel to the spy parody film "Our Man Flint" starring James Coburn. It posits an international feminist conspiracy to depose the ruling American patriarchy with a feminist matriarchy. To achieve and establish it, they kidnap and replace the U.S. President, discredit the Head of the Z.O.W.I.E. intelligence agency, and commandeer a nuclear-armed space platform, all directed from Fabulous Face, a women's spa in the Virgin Islands. Circumstances compel ex-secret agent Derek Flint to help his ex-boss, and so uncover the conspiracy. Actors James Coburn and Lee J. Cobb reprise their roles as "Derek Flint" and spy chief "Lloyd C. Cramden", Flint's ex-boss.
Like all parodies, it's not fair to compare it to the original genre and you have to expect it to be at least somewhat silly - especially in this film the plot of feminists trying to take over the world. The last reviewer who gave it a low score obviously totally missed t.he point it's a parody It's a fun movie that moves along at a fast & Coburn is great in the James Bond spoof role. Enjoy the film & don't take it too seriously & you'll have a fun ride.
