When Harry and Chester jump to stamp on the henchmen's feet, they visibly actually do not land on anyone's feet. Furthermore, the henchman on the far right takes a step backwards at the last second to protect his feet, knowing what is about to happen. See more »
At its most inspired when it breaks the fourth wall ("That's the plot of the movie? Come on, I must hide you" -"From the killers?" -"No, from the critics"!). Of special interest to James Bond fans, as it was released the same year as the first official Bond movie ("Dr.No"), so it got the pulse of the era early, and the outlandish plot could actually be considered a precursor to "Moonraker"! Other plusses include an excellent villain in Robert Morley, the ravishing young Joan Collins and the equally ravishing not-so-young Dorothy Lamour, and a series of funny cameos which I, for one, will not spoil. **1/2 out of 4.
