“Lay The Favorite” is a light-hearted movie about the sports gambling business. Bruce Willis (Die Hard) plays a goofy but loveable lead character Dink Heimowitz, who ran a sports betting enterprise, on a small level, and it creates some zaniness throught the film.
Catherine Zeta Jones (Chicago) plays Tulip, Dink’s wife and the triangle between the couple and Rebecca Hall (Beth), a stripper, makes for a very interesting and exciting storyline.
I can say that I've seen them all. Most of them in a movie theater. With the fluctuations in the actors and directors over the years I thought it would be fun to concoct a top ten list. I took into consideration the acting, special effects, Bond babes, gadgets, scenery and theme song.
1) Goldfinger – Connery - The budget was $3,500,000 ($26 million in today’s world). That might have paid for the craft services for Skyfall ($230 million dollar budget).
2) You Only Live Twice – Connery
3) Skyfall - Craig
4) Diamonds Are Forever – Connery
5) Live and Let Die – Moore
