This is more about expectations than anything else, probably, but I voted for The Miracle of Morgan's Creek.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Haven't seen enough to decide this.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

I like them all, but can understand how someone wouldn't like it. It makes fun of the censorship/morality system of the time - a system that has not been used in decades. If someone filled a movie with jokes about Eisenhower's cabinet, the film wouldn't age well either.

Still, there is enough humor to keep me interested in the film.
