Moore saying, "A Woman?!" when he meets Dr. Goodhead always has me in pieces.


But there are a lot of wtf moments in almost all Bond films that usually crack me up, for instance the whole safari adventure in OP, or MR all of a sudden going silent movie when Jaws meets his girl.



Or the moment I realise how outrageous the film is in the way it delivers the silliest things deadpan. That goes for more or less all Bond films.

The gondola scene gives me a good chuckle. Maybe I already mention it here, but that's how I still feel about it now. It's just so bloody absurd and the source music really makes it work too. MR is just a film I always have fun with.

Always a hoot, that line. It's moments like that that really make me want to see it in theater, just to laugh along with that with a crowd.

The thing about the laughter in the cinema is that most people laugh at the really obvious lines, but miss some of the more subtle ones. I'll have to think on examples and get back to you but it was more the well-known not funny lines that produce chuckles than the truly funny ones. It's early... I'll get back to this thread when the brain starts working.

That's true. Here's this depressing article about a screening where a bunch of youngsters laughed at the film. http://blogs.indiewire.com/pressplay/from-russia-with-love-is-not-unsophisticated-you-are

YES!! That article is so true. I must save it and post it everywhere ignorant movie goers go.

Thanks!

CanĀ“t do anything but wholeheartedly agree with the writer, both on that article as on its follow-up.
Luckily, I have a huge number of cinemas at my disposal and generally know which ones to avoid.

James Bond - "Well, she never tied me to a chair."

Silva - "Her loss."

There are some great lines in DAF, I still laugh even after seeing it many times.

Jaws' facial expressions in Moonraker crack me up; for that matter, most every scene with Jaws in Moonraker...

The gondola on land in Moonraker

Some of Moore's facial expressions in Moonraker....

I just watched Moonraker about 10 minutes ago so that's freshest in my memory but Diamonds Are Forever also ranks up as the funniest Bond in my book. I think there's a lot of good comedy in the franchise, and I like to think that at least most of it is intended.

Those two films get too much flack IMO, probably because many fans just don't like having too much humor in Bond. I happen to like a lot of it in DAF and MR.

I annoys me how many fans can dis on DAF, TMWTGG and DAD and still count MR as a 'classic'.
DAD over the top? How many space shuttles in Graves' fleet? (And his satellite was not covered in diamonds - just look at it, instead of making assumptions).
GG looks 'cheap'? Only compared to TSWLM.
Then they dis on Britt Eckland, Denise Richards and Halle Berry, without mentioning Tanya Roberts.
I get that MR was supposed to be entertaining to as broad an audience as possible, but I still prefer to laugh along with the cast and crew while watching a film, rather that at their effort afterwards.
I think a Bond film should inspire a nasty chuckle now and then (eg: "Butter-hook" and "He might even use one of those little golden bullets on you - and that would be a pity...because they're very expensive.", rather than forcing belly-laughs from children when Jaws survives another near-fatal crash.
Skyfall didn't make me laugh - it made me cheer here and there, the way I think a Bond film should.

How doesn't that apply to MOONRAKER? I have no doubts that the Gilbert and co didn't take the film very seriously. There's nothing as po-faced and worthy in it as the Colonel/General Moon scenes (plus slo-motion death).

Think you're in a minority there. I along with the rest of the cinema audiences laughed at most of the gags.[/quote][/quote]

Yup, I'm with ya here.

@Python I also think DAF and MR are a great time...if that's what you were getting at.
