* {{Sequelitis}}: Some consider it one of the worst Bond films (see LoveItOrHateIt above), in which case it certainly qualifies.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Depending on who you ask, it's either a fun, over-the-top amusement park ride of a movie, or the worst thing to ever happen to Bond (well, aside from the ''other'' [[Film/DieAnotherDay worst thing to ever happen to Bond]]). Finding someone just neutral about the film is a rarity.

* TheScrappy: Holly Goodhead isn't as actively despised as some of the Bond Girls who would come after her, but she's often considered the dullest, least interesting Bond Girl in the entire series. A common criticism is that she has virtually no impact on the plot after her abduction in Rio, other than providing someone for Bond to exposit to and then make out with at the end, whereas even the more widely hated Bond Girls at least did ''something'' in the climaxes of their respective films.

Made worse by the fact that her book counterpart is Gala Brand, one of the few great women characters that Fleming wrote.

Added DiffLines:

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Considering how campy the movie is, one might expect Creator/MichaelLonsdale to ham it up. But he doesn't, instead giving a subdued, chilling performance as main villain Hugo Drax.

* HilariousInHindsight: One of the actors considered for Drax was James Mason. Had he taken the role, it would be just like playing [[Film/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea Captain Nemo]] again, only IN SPACE AND WITH BOND!

* TheScrappy: Holly Goodhead isn't as actively despised as some of the Bond Girls who would come after her, but she's often considered the dullest, least interesting Bond Girl in the entire series. A common criticism is that she has literally no impact on the plot after her abduction in Rio, other than providing someone for Bond to exposit to and then make out with at the end, whereas even the more widely hated Bond Girls at least did ''something'' in the climaxes of their respective films.

* CriticalDissonance[=/=]CriticProof: This movie is widely regarded as one of the worst Bond movies, if not ''the'' worst, but it was the highest grossing film in the franchise until ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}'' was released. In fact, ''Moonraker'' tends to receive worse reviews ''now'' than it did at release, where some critics accustomed to the sci-fi craze marked it highly - ''The New York Times'' even called it the equal of ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''!

* ToughActToFollow: As if this movie's flaws weren't enough, it's coming on the heels of what's considered one of best of the Moore era, if not ''the'' best, and certainly one of the best in the series.
