Review - What's Up, Tiger Lily?

This one is pretty hard to describe. Woody Allen took a Japanese action film about a search for microfilm, erased all the dialogue and dubbed in silly slapstick dialogue making the search for a egg salad recipe.

• This movie is Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kagi no kagi (1965) with new dialogue by Woody Allen dubbed in.

• The two Japanese spy girls in the movie -- Akiko Wakabayashi and Mie Hama -- also star together in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice (1967).

• Woody Allen and his group of friends only did 60 minutes of dialogue for the movie. An additional 19 minutes of dialogue was recorded using an actor mimicking Allen, plus footage of The Lovin' Spoonful. These additions were made without Allen's consultation.

There are a few humorous bits, but most of it was just stupid.
