Yesterday we unfortuneatly had[1] to watch Live and Let Die which is a horrible untypical Bond, devoid of clever British humour, albeit possibly with the best title song.

tildequinn asked at the end, is this the only Bond movie that is not referencd in a single Austin Power scene? We couldn't think of any. Richard made a fleeting attempt with the sharks, but that is a reference to Dr No.


1) When I say "had to", it is in the form of, "to watch them all in consecutive order, we had to" rather than, "we had to watch it else ninjas would have chopped our heads off"[2]
2) Though in retrospect, getting our heads chopped off would conceivably led to an more entertaining evening

*Update*

obra found this:

Dr. Evil says "Austin Powers... he's the snake to my mongoose, or the mongoose to my snake. Either way it's bad. I don't know animals." Reference to Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Also a reference to the Roger Moore James Bond film, Live and Let Die. He kills a snake in a bath and when the Bond girl goes in the bathroom she comes out screaming. He then says the line "Oh yes, I forgot to tell you, never go in there without a mongoose."
