REVIEWED Thu., Feb. 17, 2000
There's really nothing funny about a pair of homosexual hitmen who kill an old lady, blow up a helicopter, and throw James Bond into a cremation furnace. Well, maybe if one of them looks like David Crosby. Okay, there's a lot funny about them, and that goes for the rest of this film, as Bond's gradual transformation from snide to simply sardonic comes to a close. Between Plenty O'Toole and Tiffany Case, the diamond smuggler, this film is as over-the-top as they come.
