Movie Log: What's Up, Tiger Lilly?

I'm posting about this almost entirely out of a mania of completism (the "almost" is because I also have a mania about posting regularly); I saw What's Up, Tiger Lilly? again last week, about twenty years after I saw it the first time.

And -- you know what? -- I didn't find it as funny as I did when I was in high school. I also now have serious doubts that the Japanese spy movie that Woody Allen dubbed over to make this film wasn't planned as a comedy to begin with -- some of the actors are clearly mugging.

But it's such a puffball of a movie that it's not worth seriously talking about -- it is what it is, and it's very much a '60s artifact, and I found it still mildly enjoyable.
