Trivia

George Lazenby's character "JB" was intended to be James Bond, and a nod to Ian Fleming, who helped in the creation of the original The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964). Legal concerns resulted in explicit references to Bond being dropped, though there was little doubt who the character was supposed to be. A female character, on seeing "JB," says "it's just like Her Majesty's Secret Service," a reference to the Bond film that starred George Lazenby. See more »

Goofs

When Solo and Kuryakin meet up in New York, they take a walk in the streets. Near the end of the sequence, after Kuryakin hits Solo, very tall palm trees can be seen in the reflection in the window. See more »

surprisingly good reunion flick
6 August 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Reunion TV-movies based on old series rarely capture the spirit of the original, but Return of the Man from Uncle taps into the campiness of the series as if it never was off the air. The leads have fun acknowledging their age, and the whole thing neatly turns into a parody of spy films without becoming a parody of itself. I rated it a "9" not because it is great art but because compared to all other TV reunion movies it is head and shoulders above the rest!
