Eh? Aye, but only a few. Most of the AGs these days are made in Europe these days anyway, and quite a lot of them in Germany.

Aye, but the Hollywood versions are rarely as good as the original movie produced in another country.

You may be right. However, as a canuck, I feel obligated to mention that the proper terminology to use is The States™.

Um... you do know that the Bond films are financed by the Americans, don't you? And that the producers are American?

Still, they are filmed in the UK (at least for now), star British actors and so on. So they're probably some strange kind of hybrid .

You'll get Easter cookies, I promise. They're the same as Christmas cookies, but we use different cookie cutters.

Yes, of course!

And yeah, that would have been quite bad. We don't want your parents gobbling up your cookies, do we?
