Critic Reviews for In Like Flint
It's a shame that In Like Flint plays as such a defensive reaction to on-the-rise American feminism...in most other respects, it's a worthy-enough sequel to Our Man Flint. [Blu-ray]
...tries to top its predecessor by sending übermensch Derek Flint to Moscow, outer space, and the Isle of Uppity Brassiere Models ... sloppy pacing, shoddy production values, and Lee J. Cobb looking like he's planning a stern call to his agent.
Until Austin Powers, this was the best of the spy spoofs.
The Flint series was the best spoof of the Bond flicks
Generally pleasant, campy sequel.
Great spy spoof. Coburn is engaging with good humor.
Audience Reviews for In Like Flint
Awesome, super spy and Man of Mystery joins forces with an army of super-hot, '60s, bikini-clad women (who plan to take over the world with a brain-washing hairdrier) to foil a diabolical plot to take over/destroy the world. Yeah ... who wouldn't like this movie? The movie was almost as good as the Austin Powers spoofs of the Super Spy.
Not funny, not even worthy of the term spoof. This is just horrid plot, horrid script, horrid waste of Coburn and Lee J. Cobb. These guys simply whored themselves making this abortion.

But in this case, I will make an exception. Don't waste any of your time on this more than embarressing, pityful film. It isn't even worth seeing for the costumes. [img]http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRY3xdTBdUB9FY5_AU7w5Gu-NyorsvscvNAuxUYnSSb2-BKsLKV[/img] IF ever there was a get rich film made to mock and simply ride the coat tails of a good idea, In Like Flint is that horribly crap attempt to do so. Pure exploitation of the James Bond concept if there ever was one. Of course, many other soiled attempts at spoof or otherwise were made off the fame and immense popularity of the Bond series. [img]http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQIXaLYNSoazXA9tcgKIsVvApJSmR_qHDHlyyWfPMFG11hMC7sP[/img] In summation, In Like Flint is a waste of electricity. A male chauvinist fantasy flick that is so over-the-top it is embarressing to watch even knowing full well it is being a Bond spoofer.

It posits an international feminist conspiracy to depose the ruling American patriarchy with a feminist matriarchy. 2 In Like Flint was the last film made in CinemaScope. The title is a play on the phrase "in like Flynn".

He mentions to Vanessa that it is his favorite movie.

Cobb's moustache".

This is the second of James Coburn's Flint movies. It's the better of the two. It's also the best spoof of 007. There are more good looking women. The plot is making fun of the women's lib movement that was brand new in 1967. There is a reference to the Batman TV show and a prediction of an actor becoming President of the United States. Ronald Reagan had just been elected Governor of California when this movie was made. I first saw this movie on TV. It's a fun movie with a 1960's vibe to it. Coburn also tries to do a lot of Kung Fu moves. He was being trained by Bruce Lee.
