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.

Despite being not officially a Bond film this is good solid, entertaining action.

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.

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

It may, in fact, be the first post-modern comedy, but it feels more good-natured than snarky -- and there's an undercurrent of true British satire here.

So bizarre, so wrongheaded, and so overblown that it's actually enjoyable.

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.

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.

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.

The few good aspects of this farce are vastly outweighed by the bad.
