Kind of a rough start with ADES (1A: Summer refreshers) and BIBI (5A: Israel's Netanyahu, informally), and I didn't realize that there was more than one actor in the family of ALDAS, but it perked up nicely, with the likes of MACHETE (28A: Crude coconut opener), BEDOFROSES (7D: Comfortable state), and CHIMERA (84A: Mythological monster). And the theme of changing Fs to Ds is fun. My favorite might be DISHANDCHIPS (15D: Two things seen beside James Bond at a casino?), but TWODIVESFORATEN (49A: Snorkeling bargain?) was also nice.
Things like BALDER (62D: Like Bruce Willis, in his later movie roles), JILTERS (81D: Altar no-shows), and SOLI (41D: Most arias) rub me the wrong way. The clue for the crosswordese ANIL (55A: What makes blue jeans blue), however, is interesting, and it's nice to see OTTO (39D: "The Simpsons" character with a habit of calling things "gnarly") getting into the grid.
Frannie liked it all right, and she did most of it, so let's give it a passing grade.
