When Elizabeth (Anna Lee) first meets Flint, around the 79 minute mark, she calls him 'Mr Flynn', then corrects herself. It is unclear whether it was a deliberate in-joke, as the film's title derives from the saying 'In like Flynn' (referring to Errol Flynn), or a Freudian slip, or just a simple mistake. See more »

James Colburn is a super genius and super spy. He aids in a friend to help find three minutes missing while on a golf outing with the President. Something appears to be amiss. Colburn is a ladies man and ends up all over the world showing his many talents. I happened to find all of the set designs very detailed and colorful. I will be watching it again just for the costume design, furniture design and set designs. I love Colburn, this was nothing I expected from him. It is light heartedly silly and comical. I will leave all the critical reviews for someone else. I found it goofy and entertaining and it was surprising to see this side of Colburn. If I was a design student, artist or interior decorator, definitely worth the watch.
