!!The film:

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Check it out over [[AwesomeMusic/JamesBond here]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd. Various shows have parodied the characters and there's even a jewelry store in London named after them.
* FridgeBrilliance: The two fakes both refer to him as 007; the ''real'' Blofeld always calls him "Mr Bond". In fact, throughout the series, Blofeld nearly always refers to him as "Bond" (or some variation thereof).
* FridgeLogic: Bond uses a voice changing machine to intercept Blofeld's order to Bert Saxby to kill Willard Whyte. But then Saxby still shows up to do the job, making one wonder how he found out about the order. Since Blofeld noticed something odd about Saxby's voice, he may have called Saxby back, Saxby said he hadn't called Blofeld and Blofeld figured out what was going on.
** Due to a deleted scene one is left to assume that Plenty O'Toole quite possibly had to return home ''without her clothes'' (see below).
* FunnyAneurysmMoment
** It was good that Lana Wood (Plenty) and Jill St John (Tiffany) barely had screentime together, given that both women and Robert Wagner allegedly had a falling out over Lana going to the media with her version of the events that led to the drowning death of Natalie Wood.
** The sexual humiliation that Plenty endures in Bond's hotel room may not sit well with today's audiences either.
* HarsherInHindsight: On a related note, the one scene that both actresses appeared together in had Tiffany Case go into her house, finding Bond standing by the swimming pool and Plenty ''drowned in the middle of the pool''.
* HilariousInHindsight
** Blofield threatens to destroy cities with a giant laser. 28 years later [[AustinPowers Dr. Evil.]] does the same thing.
** Bond mentions that he has "a friend called [[WreckItRalph Felix who can fix anything]]."
** At one point Bond checks into a hotel as [[IndianaJonesandtheLastCrusade Mr. Jones]].
* HoYay
** Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd.
** [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Those Two Bad Girls]] Bambi and Thumper.
* {{Narm}}
** The fake Blofeld's death in the Whyte House: he's shot in the head with a piton gun, freezes for a second or two in shock, then suddenly flings his arms in the air and topples over.
** The Chinese soldier's expression when the KillSat's beam hit him.
** The horrible dub job in the opening scene, as the actor keeps his mouth wide open but we still hear "Cai...Cai...Cairo!"
* NightmareFuel
** The cremation scene. Getting cremated alive has got to be the most horrific way to die imaginable.
** The poor Chinese soldier's death by KillSat above.
** Plenty being caught almost completely naked.
* OneSceneWonder: Plenty O'Toole. Even more so after she decides to let Bond deprive her of her clothes.
* {{Sequelitis}}: It's widely considered Connery's weakest and among the low points of the series for its campy tone and delirious plot.
* SpecialEffectFailure
** Connery's increased salary for the movie meant that a cheaper effects company had to be used to cut costs, and it shows with the exploding helicopters at the end and the KillSat laser beams and its effects towards the end of the film.
** During the chase scene with the moon rover, you can see a wheel rolling on screen just after the rover goes off camera. This is because they crashed the rover.
** Just about any explosion featured in the film. Those from ''Film/DrNo'' and ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' look better by comparison.
** And the KillSat itself.
* StopHelpingMe: Case accidentally puts the real tape in the machine (after Bond had swtiched it out for the fake), and is caught trying to switch it back.
** TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter
** Tiffany Case enduring BadassDecay and becoming another bumbling sidekick for Bond to rescue.
** And poor Plenty, such a fun, lovely girl...
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Bond going on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge to avenge his wife and destroy Blofeld and SPECTRE once and for all would have made a hell of a movie and a GrandFinale to the SeanConnery era, or a great comeback for Lazenby. Too bad the revenge angle all but disappears after the ColdOpen, Lazenby was gone and Connery [[MoneyDearBoy looks bored as hell]]. The movie is a giant cheese and camp factory on wheels and nothing with Blofeld really gets resolved.
* ValuesDissonance: James plays with Tiffany's genuine fear of being locked up for pure kicks at times.
* WhatAnIdiot: Willard Whyte has installations all over the place; Alaska, Florida, Maine, Oregon, Texas, Baja -- wait, he doesn't have anything in Baja? The villains could've set up ''anywhere'' along any coastline, ''and they choose the one place Whyte knows he doesn't have any property''? And then they ''mark'' their secret base on Whyte's map?
** The biggest problem seems to be not that they used Whyte's name to buy it, but that they built a model oil rig and put it on his giant floor map of property. Nobody exactly comes up to see Whyte, and those who have access to the room and know about the purchase likely wouldn't question the lack of a marker simply because it's not a big deal (and those who have access are probably in on the plot to hold Whyte hostage anyway). Literally the only person who would actually notice them marking their secret base is the person who could blow the lid on the whole operation. Had they not bothered marking the purchase, they'd have had to search every location on the map and give Blofeld all the time in the world to laser cities.
** How Plenty O'Toole got herself into her chilling fate, which has been a mystery to fans and viewers for years. Plenty's unfortunate send off was the result of a deleted scene where after getting thrown out of the hotel room and into the pool a soaking wet Plenty, wearing nothing but a towel and carrying her purple high heels (it is not addressed whether or not she still has her iconic transparent pink panties) returns to Bond's hotel room in the hopes of retrieving her clothes and seeing what's happened to him - and is positively outraged to find Bond having sex with Tiffany Case. Before leaving in a huff Plenty rummages through Tiffany's purse and finds her address, so she later went to Tiffany's to get even. It didn't go well for her... A bit of unintentional yet amusing FridgeHorror here is that without this deleted scene one is left with the idea that Plenty possibly had to return to her home ''WITHOUT'' her proper clothes.

!!The novel:
* ValuesDissonance: Felix makes a joke about how you can't call a measure of whiskey a "jigger" anymore; now you have to call it a ''Jegro''.
