* ReplacementScrappy: It's widely considered a good Bond movie... except for the protagonist.

Sean Connery, although most are far kinder to be VindicatedByHistory by many fans; lots of Bond and film critics now think he did great, him nowadays with most of the movie's bad reputation now almost solely falling on Lazenby's authentic failure blame having to do with the failures of an his agent.



* VindicatedByHistory: Among fans, anyway. The film was not well received when it was first released (for reasons regarding Lazenby), but since then many fans of the series regard it as a classic. Also, EON Studios has demonstrated their own love of the film on numerous occasions.
** While the casual moviegoer or average film critic tends to think ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' is the best Bond movie, hardcore Bond fans- and Bond fans who happen to be respected movie critics- have a good chance of listing ''this'' film as greatest in the series. That's how vindicated it has become.
** Even the claims that the film was "not well received when it was first released" are inaccurate. The movie received a number of good reviews on its release. Also, per IMDB, it had made over $87 million worldwide on a $7 million budget as of 1970, making it quite successful financially. It was a step down from the level of ''[[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice You Only Live Twice]]'', but nonetheless, the studio was well compensated for its investment. In terms of overall film and narrative quality, let's just say that time has been much kinder to ''On Her Majesty's Secret Service'' than ''You Only Live Twice'', or the so LighterAndSofter that it was practically camp comedy ''Diamonds Are Forever'' (often described as a RogerMoore Bond film that just happens to star SeanConnery).
