James Robertson Justice,
Flint is again called out of retirement when his old boss finds that he seems to have missed three minutes while golfing with the president. Flint finds that the president has been replaced by an actor (Flint's line [with a wistful look] is "An Actor as President?") Flint finds that a group of women have banded together to take over the world through subliminal brainwashing in beauty salons they own.Written by

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 »
When Cramden visits Flint at his apartment, Flint's robe goes from being untied and open, to partially closed, to closed and tied, and then back to open. See more »
Well it looks like I'm in a minority with this one as I think 'In Like Flint' is better than 'Our Man Flint'! It's goofier than the original and for me that makes it more entertaining. It's filled with silly stuff like exploding golf balls, brainwashing via hairdryers, Flint talking fluent dolphin and Lee J. Cobb in drag. It's similar in approach to the 'Batman' TV series (Yvonne "Batgirl" Craig even appears as a Russian ballerina) so if you enjoy that show, and yes, Austin Powers, you'll have lots of fun.
