the first hour of Casino Royale (1967)

Casino Royale, 1967. Something to do with James Bond, kind of.

Directed by Ken Hughes, John Huston, Joseph McGrath, Robert Parrish, & Richard Talmadge. Written by Wolf Mankowitz, John Law & Michael Sayers, based on a book by Ian Fleming. Starring Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress & David Niven.

(estimated ratings, as I didn't finish the movie)
Enjoyment: So completely terrible, it made me want to cry a little. I guess it was meant to be a comedy? It has the tone of a comedy (so far as it has a tone at all), and the synopsis says it's a spoof, and there's a joke every ten minutes or so. The first thing I could definitely say was meant to be funny was a little over fourteen minutes in. Nearly halfway through the movie, I still couldn't say what the plot was. Most of the time I either didn't know what was happening, or didn't know why it was happening; the rest of the time, I didn't know what it had to do with anything else that had happened. I'm fairly confident that this movie's quality-of-product-to-talent-involved ratio is lower than any other movie. F
(Estimated) GPA: 0.9/4
