What's Up, Tiger Lily? Movie Review Summary

Actors: Woody Allen

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of What's Up, Tiger Lily?

A whacky spy-spoof!!! Woody Allen buys a Japanese Spy Flick and replaces the dialouge with that of his own!!! Crazy, vague plot of spies and thugs attempting to get possession of a recipe for the world's greatest egg salad. Yes... EGG SALAD!! Outrageous dialogue featuring Woody Allen, Loiuse Lasser and others. Great 60's music soundtrack by the Lovin' Spoonful.

The review of this Movie prepared by Herbert Spelling

Woody Allen bought the rights to an existing Japaneese film and re-dubbed it. It now makes absolutely no sense at all. Even the plot is incoherent (Something about the top-secret plans for something related to coffee). It won't matter much, though, as the dubbed diolouge is hilarious and some scene breaks with little skits involving Allen himself! A delight!
