Embarassing 'Swinging London" caper film...
18 April 2020 | by kernanbrentSee all my reviews

Just put a number of hot girls in go-go outfits on screen with one male star in the center and the movie writes itself. This formulaic mad-cap caper film follows in the footsteps of "Casino Royale" and "Blaise Modesty" in its use of colorfully dressed beauties that are calculated to divert attention from the lack of plot, character, humor, tension or anything else that might require talent to pull off. You might like it just to see how silly these sort of late-60s movies could get.
