Oh man, don't waste your time or your money on the new Bond. It was yawny yawn.
Instead, watch the original Casino Royale, which is actually funny, Ursula Andress plays Vesper (although I totally thought her name was "Vespa" until the very end of the damn thing this time around), and Orson Welles plays Le Chiffre. And there's Woody Allen. Sounds like SO FRACKING MUCH OF A BETTER TIME, eh? Also: Peter Sellers. Also: partly written by Terry Southern.
It was totally Austin Powers before Austin Powers was Austin Powers.
Note: writing that last line made me think semi-fondly of 1997, when it was actually okay for three days for people to say "Yeah, baby" and "Do I make you horny?"
Ah, simpler times, friends. Simpler times.
