One of the most prominent cast members is oddly missing from the credits of the latest Bond film: BMW. Shameless product placement drives the movie, which like most Bond films is devoid of plot and abundant in double entendres and attractive characters. Tomorrow Never Dies does flirt with an interesting story, though the effects and action ultimately dominate. Bond (Brosnan) and his stylishly fit sidekick Wai Lin (Yeoh) take on a maniacal media mogul (Pryce) who tries to start World War III to boost ratings on his new satellite news service.
