More Bond amusement

I had no intention of turning this into a James Bond blog this week, but there’s just been so much entertaining news I’ve had no choice. Now the latest news: Daniel Craig can’t drive a stick-shift car. Apparently, he was only qualified to drive automatic transmission cars and they’ve had to stop filming while he learns to drive an Aston Martin.

How many bad vibes does one film need?
