Movie Review: Casino Royale

Not the recent "straight" version, this is the 1967 spoof version starring David Niven, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress, at least five other actors and two seals, all as "James Bond". I wish I was kidding about that.

Back in my review of Head, I said:

Well, I guess anyone could make any movie they wanted to back in the 60's.

This was apparently what I meant. Why anybody thought this mess of a film, with five directors, at least that many plotlines, and a denouement straight out of Benny Hill would actually work is beyond me. I guess Orson Welles really did do anything for money.

I'm only one week into 2008, and I sincerely hope I've already seen the worst film I will see this year. One star, and that's just because it's as low as I go.
