Net pedants pile into Casino Royale
Now pay attention, 007
Those of you who have yet to see* Daniel Craig giving it some stick in Casino Royale will undoubtedly get added pleasure from the experience armed with www.moviemistakes.com's comprehensive list of the film's outrages against continuity and fact.
For example, one sharp-eyed critic notes: "When Bond first gets into his Aston Martin outside the Casino Royale, the driver's door is open. Then the shot cuts and the door is closed."
And if that's not bad enough, try this shocker: "When James Bond is supposedly in Montenegro, this was filmed in the Czech Republic - although they changed most of the signs they forgot some. When they are having a drink in the square there is a visible sign saying 'Bily Kun' which means 'White Horse' in Czech."
Oh dear, oh dear. Surprisingly, though, the net pedants down at Movie Mistakes have dismally failed to list the worst howler of all, viz: Daniel Craig is blond and, as every true Bond fan knows, 007 is not and Ian Fleming is spinning in his grave and I wish to protest in the strongest possible terms, etc, etc... ®
*Me included. I hear good things about the latest Bond, blond or not.
