James Bond's favorite drink might be a martini shaken not stirred but the favorite drink of Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 (Leslie Nielsen) was a dry Manoli and Roussos on the rocks, stirred not beaten, with a twist of lemon, in chilled glasses not frozen, and with two curly little straws. See more »
Near the end, when WD-40 is tied up and the henchman walks up to him, he falls down and his arms are tied at the elbow. But when he tags in, he's tied at the wrist. See more »

I've seen a few of Leslie Nielsen's spoof movies that were, indeed, funny for the most part such as his role as Dracula or in the takeoff of The Fugitive. However, this one - a parody of the James Bond film - just didn't have the quality or quantity of belly laughs, or laughs at all. It relies too much on slapstick and tired, overused jokes. To be fair, there are some funny scenes and parodies of other films but just not enough of them. The best part of the movie may have been the opening credits, which was an excellent takeoff on the memorable Bond openings.
I also thought they overdid the irreverence on the convent scene. It's typical Hollywood in which nuns and priests are portrayed as the opposite of what they are supposed to be (nuns with machine guns and disrespectful language??! Let's not overdo the satire.)
Well, at least it wasn't boring and it's wasn't overly long at just 81 minutes.
