A surfeit of screenwriters (eight, including Billy Wilder) and directors (five, including John Huston) lends the whole a chaotic, disjointed air, but there is much fun to be had along the way.

Proponents of this dreadfully indulgent cabaret, which thumbs its nose at coherence, have called its nigh-impenetrable plot the sincerest form of satire. That's like citing the indecipherable nature of Zapf Dingbats as a foremost send-up of language.

A magnificent mess, it's either the greatest argument against LSD or the worst.

Peter Sellers has some amusing gags as the gambler, the chance of dressing up in various guises and a neat near-seduction scene with Ursula Andress.

A mess. Casino Royale is two hours and eleven minutes of non sequitur.

Out of five directors -- only McGrath manages to connect with this brontosaurian James Bond parody.

Now Craig assumes the mantle, and you know, he does OK.

No less than five directors, including John Huston, and eight writers, including Billy Wilder and Ben Hecht, tried to salvage this lengthy, laden all-star Bond spoof--to no avail.

Even less amusing than the more 'serious' Bond films.

...only a very small minority of those acquainted with the more arcane aspects of 1960s cinema are going to have some appreciation for CASINO ROYALE.

It's the sort of reckless, disconnected nonsense that could be telescoped or stopped at any point.

Watching this movie is a serious drag.
