    It's the sort of reckless, disconnected nonsense that could be telescoped or stopped at any point.

    ...a definitive example of what can happen when everybody working on a film goes simultaneously berserk.

  • Dave Kehr Chicago Reader (Top Critic)
    Out of five directors -- only McGrath manages to connect with this brontosaurian James Bond parody.

  • Variety Staff Variety (Top Critic)
    Peter Sellers has some amusing gags as the gambler, the chance of dressing up in various guises and a neat near-seduction scene with Ursula Andress.

    The few good aspects of this farce are vastly outweighed by the bad.

    Poor 007 is now lost in a hall of distorting mirrors.

    Proponents of this dreadfully indulgent cabaret, which thumbs its nose at coherence, have called its nigh-impenetrable plot the sincerest form of satire. That's like citing the indecipherable nature of Zapf Dingbats as a foremost send-up of language.

    A magnificent mess, it's either the greatest argument against LSD or the worst.

    Silly 007 spoof tamer than Austin Powers.

    Despite being not officially a Bond film this is good solid, entertaining action.

    A mess. Casino Royale is two hours and eleven minutes of non sequitur.

    Now Craig assumes the mantle, and you know, he does OK.

    No less than five directors, including John Huston, and eight writers, including Billy Wilder and Ben Hecht, tried to salvage this lengthy, laden all-star Bond spoof--to no avail.

    It's cheesy, cheesy, cheesy.

    Even less amusing than the more 'serious' Bond films.

    ...only a very small minority of those acquainted with the more arcane aspects of 1960s cinema are going to have some appreciation for CASINO ROYALE.

    Profoundly unamusing bore.

  • Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
    90
    It may, in fact, be the first post-modern comedy, but it feels more good-natured than snarky -- and there's an undercurrent of true British satire here.

    It's a spoof that went places even James Bond feared to tread.
