A gleefully cheeky action-comedy that nearly perfectly sends up 007.

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension. 

GRADE

On DVD: The Theory of Everything

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.
