* HoYay / WorthyOpponent: M and General Gogol. After British and Soviet forces decide to work together, Gogol calls M "Miles"[[note]]Incidentally, the only time in the movies M's real name is mentioned[[/note]], M calls Gogol "Alexis", and they act positively chummy with each other. Bond and Anya give a WTF look to each other after witnessing this scene.

* SacredCow: It is unanimously considered to be the best movie of the Roger Moore era, and is the only movie of the 70s and 80s that has not divided fans' opinion.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Did Stromberg's secretary betray him because of greed or because she wanted to thwart his plan to [[spoiler: wipe out most of the human race]]?


* AcceptableTargets: Apparently, Ancient Egyptian architects, as Bond is shown muttering "Egyptian builders" after Jaws collapses part of a temple down on himself. [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales However, Egyptian audiences]] [[ActuallyPrettyFunny found it hysterical]]. Then again, they're clearly CrossingTheLineTwice for laughs, since the [[SelfDepreciation talents]] of Egyptian builders are pretty damn obvious.

* WTHCostumingDepartment: The bannana-yellow ski-suit Bond wears in TheTeaser.


* EvenBetterSequel: ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' is a [[BrokenBase divisive]] film, but many, including Creator/RogerMoore himself, consider ''The Spy Who Loved Me'' to be the best of the Moore 007 films (though ''For Your Eyes Only'' sometimes takes that prize) and one of the greatest in the whole series.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: The intention during Bond's fight with Sandor was presumably that the woman Bond meets was in league with Sandor and drawing him into position to be shot. Unfortunately, this isn't quite made clear in the scene itself, which can give the impression that Bond coldly sacrificed an innocent bystander just to save his own skin.

* UnfortunateImplications: Vivienne equates Bond making love to her to a man claiming his prize after vanquishing a dragon, following it with the [[MemeticMutation infamous claim]] that "all women love semi-rape". [[http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18455.The_Spy_Who_Loved_Me Many reviews mention the moment in negative fashion]].

As much of Fleming's writing contains veiled references to BDSM and it's widely accepted that he enjoyed the practice, however, it seems to be more of a clumsy reference to kink.
