This movie was mostly enjoyable to watch as it a script that had some really funny and intense action scenes along with a zany boat chase at the end. However it did have some really bad dialogue scenes and the acting was another issue with Kirk Douglas being miscast in his role as he didn't seem to do the comedic scenes very well. Also Marlene Jobert's voice was really annoying at times but the cinematography was excellent with some great senic shots as it was shot in Europe. The set decoration looked fake at times and don't be fooled by the R rating as this movie just a few mild adult situations and the language mainly consisted of homosexual references along with mostly comedic violence.
