You guys tend to speak well about this movie. That said, no actor has made more "bondlegs" than Brosnan. Just love him in The Fourth Protocol.
And the new Disney show, KC Undercover
Been thinking about these two, but I think I'll pass or see 'em on MST3K if available.
Here in Spain we made a couple of parodies, like a co-production with France called Carré de dames pour un as (TERRIBLE except for Serge Gainsborough's soundtrack), or 07 con el 2 delante (07 with prefix #2) and one of them premiered last Friday: Anacleto, Agente Secreto, based in a popular comic which spoofed James Bond.
There was that lil' nifty cartoon fantasy film, Freddy as FRO7. I loved the songs (especially the George Benson one, as I'm a great fan of him), but I don't know if it's worth getting it
OF COURSE XD How could I forgot Get Smart? I was a fan of Maxwell Smart long before I even saw a 007 film!

Those are the primary Bond knock-offs of the 1960s/60s period pieces every Bond fan MUST see. Sure, some of them are made of absurdity, but if you're a fan of the spy genre and the 1960s overall, these films you should never miss. And I must point out, some of those titles are very hard to track down and find. They took me awful lot of time (and money) to acquire them and add them into my collection.
Every fan of the 60's Bond movies has to see this.
And it's no-so-good sequel:
Not part of the same series, but also staring Richard Johnson:
Also, Arabesque (Gregory Peck & Sophia Loren - more comedic though) and a few Hitchcock (some that predate Bond) including, of course, North by Northwest & Charade but also Notorious & the Torn Curtain.
Then of course, there's the "Fantômas" film series, by André Hunebelle, featuring Jean Marais, Louis de Funés and Mylène Demongeot :
and of course
Kingsman and UNCLE, the series and films.
The International was very Bond-esque. Or is it Bondian. I liked it a lot, actually.
I have it. Excellent performances by Hoffman, Scheider and Sir Laurence, and that scene with a crazed Hoffman terrorizing Olivier is a classic. Heck, it still inspires lots of internet memes.
Now that I remember it, as a spoof, we have Woody Allen's What's Up, Tiger Lily?, that infamous but funny gag dub of a Japanese Bond knockoff featuring Akiko-chan and Mie-chan from YOLT.
I was wondering... Is there a Soviet Bond-like film?
And of course, there's "Le Magnifique", with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jacqueline Bisset, which is a hilarious send-up of potboilers like OSS and SAS. Highly recommanded !

Yes, of course. My mistake and thanks for correcting me.
Another one is "Hot Enough For June", also known as "Agent 8 3/4" with Dirk Bogarde & Sylva Koscina (who was apparently in the running at one point to play Tatiana Romanova).
Edit - just noticed that this has its own thread. Apologies for the duplication. And this probably doesn't belong here. Please delete as necessary......
It has been a very useful guide, Clark. Thank you.
Found and willing to see that
I have this one! I read it was a very funny Disney romp and got it. I got Le Magnifique, too. It looks very promising.
I have the three Richard Johnson movies covered, as well as the Fantomas trilogy, If Looks Could Kill,Agent 8 3/4 and The Matador
I suggest you open a new thread: it will be much more noticed than this little message, and I'm sure many people here will help you on this wonderful idea of yours. Good luck!!!
Piece of cake: the MST3K version is widely available online due to being the last episode of this legendary series.
