Factual error: When we first see Fatima Blush she is waterskiing. She is doing several stunts which are only possible with one ski, the most notable being skiing backwards with one foot in the air. But when she releases the tow rope and skis up the ramp into James Bond's arms, she is on two skis. (00:45:55)
7/10. An amusing send off for Connery's interpretation of Bond. He did well though not as good as past performances probably due to his age. His best bits are the scenes with Barbara Carrera. She was a perfect Bond girl though I wish she'd been the one he retired with and not Kim Basinger. Basinger has next to no skills and just seems clueless in the movie. Still it's a good watch for Bond fans.
Q: Welcome back, Mr. Bond. I trust there will be lots of gratuitous sex and violence occurring.
Question: Sean Connery took dancing lessons for 11 years in his youth, and he surely knew how to dance when he made this film in his 50s. So, why is his choreographed tango with Kim Basinger in this film so painfully, embarrassingly awkward and heavily edited? Is this perhaps due to the fact that Kim Basinger had virtually no dancing skills?
