The world's weather seems to have changed dramatically with violent storms everywhere and long dormant volcanoes suddenly erupting. No one is sure what is happening or why but when American intelligence chief Cramden loses yet another team of agents, there appears to be only one man who can do the job: Derek Flint, former super spy, incredibly rich and the ultimate ladies man. Despite Cramden's concerns, Flint is on the job and soon discovers that the Earth's weather is under the control of a secret organization known as GALAXY whose scientists are looking to pacify the world and devote humankind to scientific pursuits.Written by
According to the map Flint finds in the safe, Galaxy Island is in the Mediterranean Sea, almost equidistant - 250 kilometers - from the island of Mallorca, the cities of Barcelona and Marseille, and the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. In real life there is no island at that location (see also Goofs). See more »
In the opening scenes of the movie, the Galaxy operatives are using a World World II style submarine. Yet at the waterfall scene at the entrance of the Galaxy island, the submarine is a late 50's/early 60's era attack style. See more »

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 Outdated, granted, but still enjoyable. 6/10
