This movie is the flip-side of the man from U.N.C.L.E. It's still a spy movie but instead of slick, dapper, and dashing, Vaughn plays borderline alcoholic, unkempt, and more than a dash inept. What's funny is that the movie was shot in Venice and looked so much more like a "real" movie than The Spy with My Face that it was out of the funny territory and into "decent." Boris Karloff has a small role, Ed Asner's thick neck makes numerous appearances, and damn if Robert Vaughn still doesn't have awesome game. All he has to do is ask a woman "are you sure you want to be alone tonight?" and he gets action.
Also, they played a trailer for Putney Swope which has to be.... easily... one of the top five best trailers i have ever seen. easily. words can't even describe it... except to say that it's even MORE awesome if you've seen the actual movie.
