* AdvertisedExtra: Teri Hatcher, who was heavily promoted as the film's Bond girl over the non-Caucasian Michelle Yeoh, clearly doesn't want to be here. She admits that she only took the role to fulfill one of her (ex) husband's fantasies and there are all manner of stories about the actress showing up late on the set and just being a pain in the ass to work with. Reportedly Pierce Brosnan was quite disappointed the producers didn't cast Monica Bellucci in the rule (she actively campaigned for it). Although Paris is a great [[StuffedIntoTheFridge plot device]] the character is just an object to be fought over by Bond and Carver. ("I believe you have two ''things'' that belong to me!" sneers Carver, the first being his GPS encoder.)[[note]]Bellucci would, however, get her chance and turn to be a Bond girl eighteen years later in ''Film/{{Spectre}}''[[/note]]

* DeadStarWalking: [[spoiler:While Teri Hatcher was featured in the advertising campaign as much as (if not more than) Creator/MichelleYeoh, Paris Carver is the requisite secondary Bond Girl who dies halfway through, as per tradition. In the original cut, she had much more screentime, but test audiences' reactions to her role were largely negative, so much of it was omitted. Total scene count for Paris in a two-hour film: three.]]

* ArtisticLicense: Chinese keyboards do not show Chinese characters - they use the QWERTY keyboard, as the words are typed in Pinyin (Romanised Chinese), which are then converted to the relevant symbol.

-->'''Carver:''' Welcome to the new world order, Mr. Bond.

* BondVillainStupidity: Played straight and then averted. First, instead of shooting Bond when he had him at gunpoint, Dr. Kaufman gets into a conversation with Bond. Then it turns out he needs to leave Bond alive just long enough to open his car up for his colleagues to steal something inside. Bond says his phone controls the car and opens it up, but Kaufman seems GenreSavvy enough to know it could be a gadget that Bond would use against him. However, it turns out that operating the phone itself was no better, as instead of unlocking the car, Bond gives him a combination that causes Kaufman to shock himself.

* BadassBoast: Kaufman claims he will shoot Bond and make it look like a suicide. Bond says that at that distance they'll be able to tell the shot didn't come from Bond (goading Kaufman to get close enough to disarm).
-->'''Kaufman''': I am a professor of forensic medicine. I could shoot you from ''Stuttgart'' and still create the proper effect!



* BondVillainStupidity: Instead of shooting Bond when he had him at gunpoint, Dr. Kaufman gets into a conversation with Bond that the latter uses to disable Kaufmann. As he needs Bond to open his car up for his colleagues to steal something inside, he types in the buttons on the phone Bond hands him, rather than just simply ordering Bond to do it himself, and gets tasered for it.
