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

...a definitive example of what can happen when everybody working on a film goes simultaneously berserk.

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

A big, flashy, unguided spoof that wanders around and bores you to sleep.
| Original Score: 2/5

Silly 007 spoof tamer than Austin Powers.

Note to filmmakers: If you want to spoof something, at least make sure you're outdoing your source material on the comedy front.

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Despite a ton of stars, a flock of directors, and more Bonds than you can shake a martini at, the movie is close to a complete disaster.
| Original Score: 4/10

Profoundly unamusing bore.

...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.

There is a razor thin line between being funny and being stupid.

Even more awful considering the wasted talents.

Watching this movie is a serious drag.

Surrealisticly bad

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

It's cheesy, cheesy, cheesy.

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.

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