Just to clarify before anyone asks, she’s called that because her dad really liked octopuses, not because she has eight vaginas or her vagina has tentacles or anything like that. Now that we have that settled (and don’t even pretend that you weren’t wondering), here’s another bland Roger Moore entry to the James Bond series! He dresses like a clown!
Bond stumbles onto a circus that steals and smuggles jewels (and occasionally faberge eggs) led by a woman who calls herself Octopussy. Her partner in crime is a general who’s actually using her smuggling as a way to sneak a nuclear bomb into a city and set it off, blowing everything up. Of course James Bond is on the case and saves the day and drives several vehicles that get chased or are chasing other similar vehicles.
Nope, can’t really think of anything else to say about this one. It’s pretty damn similar to The Spy Who Loved Me. Pretty much the best part of this film is that it’s where the line, “You have a nasty habit of surviving, Mr. Bond” which is one of my favorite lines from the series. It is a pretty good line, you gotta admit.
