I remembered bits and pieces of this movie prior to seeing it again, because they stuck in my mind from my childhood. Maybe that's the way it should have stayed because I found "Our man Flint" really isn't as funny as I had thought. It's just a silly movie with a silly leading man with silly inventions that make MacGyver look like a boy scout. The funniest bit in this parody is without a doubt the part when he joins the dance party to collect his girls. First that look he makes right before he enters, and then the "dance" he pulls off. I must have pushed the rewind button about a dozen times because it was so funny. A silly movie with neat ideas, a rather poor production and a good leading man. Outdated, granted, but still enjoyable. 6/10
