Goofs

(at around 55 mins) In a European scene, youngsters are astonished that 'Natalia' (or Woody's comic book creation of Laser Lady' ) is before them. Several children have comic books in their hands. As the boy in the foreground turns his copy around, you can actually read the back cover (US) edition advertisements and further can realize the front cover is in US English! You will also note that all children have US versions. See more »

Quotes

Woody Wilkins: Well?
Harry Oslo: I got some information on Natalia.
Woody Wilkins: Tell me!
Harry Oslo: Krokovk's got her. He's holding her at the embassy on the border of Monte Carlo.
Woody Wilkins: We've gotta get to her, Harry!
Harry Oslo: Woody, wait. We also got new orders. We've been ordered back to the U.S. The mission's considered a bust.
Woody Wilkins: I can't go back. Not without Natalia. I love her, Harry.
Harry Oslo: I know.
Woody Wilkins: Look, I've still got top rated clearance. That gives me access to anything I need, right?
Harry Oslo: Woody, that was before we were ordered back to the states!

Crazy Credits

In the first version released by Anchor Bay Entertainment, the pace of the opening credits has been sped up, as is evidenced by the speed of the boats, vehicles, tourists, and finally Michael Crawford's walking around on the Eiffel Tower before Russ appears. See more »

Remember when we were young
18 August 2006 | by diondevlinSee all my reviews

This film reminds me of the first 'flick' our entire family went to see. Oh and the last. Condorman will only be a good film for those who remember times gone by. This is a very watchable family film but don't expect major laughs, especially with Michael Crawford's (Ooooh Betty) poor American accent. This was Disneys alternative to Superman with a splash of James Bond, and quite simply it was anything but. Please watch it so you can see how much storyboards, acting and special effects have progressed. If you like Porsche's chasing a gypsy waggon, then this is for you. If you are going to analyse this film for its kit-ch humour, and the directors/studio's desperation to get a film out for Summer, don't bother, however it is a way of introducing a spy film to your 3 year old.
