Storyline

The evil crime syndicate Thanatos is bent on taking over the world, using a magnetic wave generator that will cause all metal-based machinery to grind to a halt. However, the well-known British secret agent normally assigned to such tasks isn't available, so they engage his civilian brother, Neil, to help. Neil, played by Neil Connery, is a world-class plastic surgeon, hypnotist, and lip-reader, which turn out to be precisely the skills required for thwarting Thanatos. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Trivia

The taglines "'Neil Connery' is too much" and "OPERATION KID BROTHER is Too Much for One Mother!" are parodies of the tagline for the James Bond spoof movie Casino Royale (1967) which says "Casino Royale is too much for one James Bond!". See more »

Goofs

When Beta fires his magnetic wave weapon, which is designed to freeze all metal into immovable blocks, cars are seen coming to a halt. The next time the cars are shown, though, the car doors and hoods have somehow been opened. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Neil Connery: Dr. Huffon was asking me if it would be possible to make a demonstration of hypnosis of total recall. This experiment requires the outlay of a great deal of energy...
Man sitting next to Maya: [whispering to Maya] Why don't you try it?
Dr. Neil Connery: No, no. Not the young lady.
Man sitting next to Maya: Excuse me, doctor. I really thought that I was just whispering.
Dr. Neil Connery: Actually it's my fault. I didn't hear you, but I am capable of lip-reading.

OK pastiche. Don't knock it till you've tried it!
4 April 2004 | by jwpeel-1See all my reviews

I remember so clearly how excited I was to see this movie into theaters were the first came out. When I remember most was seeing so many great familiar faces from the Sean Connery 007 series. Little did I know that composer Ennio Morricone would later become famous for the theme for "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly," but I did love the theme song "O.K. Conneryand," which incidentally is an alternate title for this film is. Many will tear this film apart, but I say no fair. It was meant to be for fun, and succeeds quite well there. True, the dubbing is awful, especially since I really wish I could have heard Sean's less famous brother speak for himself, but no matter. There are lots of great locations to see how the many attractive Italian girls, and if you don't take it too seriously (God knows how you could) it's a fun and entertaining way to pass the time. Hell, it beats the crap out of "Casino Royale."
