You get the drill by now—it's just a matter of how they do it this time. Pierce Brosnan is back as 007, this time joining forces with Michelle Yeoh to vanquish evil media magnate Jonathan Pryce (and his wife, former Bond conquest Teri Hatcher). Like a truck and tractor pull, you just can't help but want to go, eh?

Fortunately for us, Brosnan is in perfect shape this year, and his "Tomorrow" is a streamlined fantasy, easy on rage and high on humor. Jonathan Pryce's bad guy is a cardboard cut-out at best (and I'm sure the talented Mr. Pryce did it strictly for the $$$) but the whole thing nicely recalls the campy capers of the early, early Bond movies with Sean Connery. With Judi Dench, Desmond Llewelyn, Samantha Bond and Joe Don Baker.
