* AngstWhatAngst: Domino gets over her private shock and humiliation at having been felt up by Bond in the guise of a masseuse rather quickly. ''With a smile''.
* EarWorm: "Never, never say never again, never, never say never again..."
* EvilIsSexy: Fatima Blush is even nastier than Fiona Volpe, her original counterpart. Barbara Carrera is also a very sexy woman.
* FetishRetardant: While "fetish" might not be the exact term, the scene where Bond poses as Domino's masseur to feel her up is played in a playful tone typical of Bond films, but her reaction to finding out he was a fake tearful and looking as though she feels very violated makes the scene a lot more uncomfortable, especially with the HarsherInHindsight example below. It gives her quick forgiveness of him later all the more MoodWhiplash.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** Bond engages in a ''video game duel'' against Emilio Largo. The film came out in 1983, the year of the infamous [[UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 Video Game Crash of 1983]] that nearly sank the entire industry. That's to say nothing of the various Atari consoles seen in the arcade; Atari was the leading developer of that market before the crash and would never regain its former dominance afterward.
** Try watching the massage scene after finding out that Connery attempted to force himself on Basinger in his dressing room before production took an extended break.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 A black man plays Felix Leiter]].
** Creator/RowanAtkinson starred as a bumbling MI6 agent. He would go on to parody James Bond with ''Film/JohnnyEnglish''.
** Q offers Bond a pen that shoots miniature missiles. He would eventually update this to a pen grenade in ''Film/GoldenEye''.
** The fishing woman in Bahamas is played by Valerie Leon, who also played an hotel receptionist in ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe''. In ''The Spy Who Loved Me'' she is flirty with Bond, but oddly for him, Bond closes his room's door in her face. Here, Bond has no such problem.
** Bond offers a woman foie gras. A [[Creator/RogerMoore different incarnation of Bond]] would [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqI-28WuoYQ not approve]].
* NarmCharm: Bond blowing up Fiona Volpe with the miniature pen missile is ridiculous, and she even has time to see it sparking in her gut; however, literally being blown up in a fireball is still a horrible way to die.
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** Bernie Casey would later be known for appearing in the ''Film/RevengeOfTheNerds'' movies.
** Nigel Small-Fawcett is played by Creator/RowanAtkinson, years before ''Series/MrBean''.
* {{Squick}}: Largo forcing a kiss on Domino. Why, oh why, did they have to use a take where you can see a string of drool stretched between their lips as he pulls away?
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: The most common complaint to a film that's literally a retread of ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' made by a different studio, thus lacking most of the film series' trademarks.
