Friday Movie Review - Dr. No

I thought I would continue on the British spy theme with a cool British classic . . . James Bond! This week I am reviewing the very first James Bond movie ever made, "Dr No!"

Dr No (1962)
Directed By: Terence Young
Written By: Ian Fleming (novel)
Richard Maibaum (screenplay)

Mommy loooooves James Bond movies, especially the first ones starring Sean Connery, so you can bet your whiskers that I have seen all of them! Dr. No is fun to watch, simply because it is the very first James Bond film. As with most of the early Bond movies, the plot can be hard to follow. We know from the beginning that someone has gone missing in the Bahamas, and that Bond has been sent to find them. And we know that he certainly knows what he is doing, romancing the ladies and sneaking around all stealthily. And we most certainly know that Dr No is the evil villain, especially since he has his own secret island base. What it is always hard to figure out, no matter how often mommy and I watch it, is exactly what Dr No's nefarious plot is, and exactly what he plans to accomplish with it. It has something to do with a rocket and NASA . . . beyond that we can never be exactly clear.

But mommy says who cares, when you have this to look at.

And even when you don't know what Bond is doing, he always looks so cool doing it.

Mommy has taken "Which Bond Girl Are You?" quizzes many times (I told you she is a fan), and everytime she takes one she gets the same answer: Honey Ryder.

You are Honey Ryder -- free-spiritied, nature-loving, and adventurous. Your response to "you can't do that" has always been to do it, and you're way to smart to get caught. You're a bit of a loner, but that just makes you more mysteriously attractive.

"Dr No" is the Bond film that has Honey Ryder in it, as portrayed by the extremely lovely ladybean Ursula Andress. Mommy looks like this in her dreams.

To take the quiz for yourself, click here.

Mommy is MORE than okay with being Honey Ryder, because that means that this can happen.

I give "Dr No" two paws up and a stealthy stalk, for being not only the film that introduced the world to James Bond, and catapulted Sean Connery to stardom, but also for just being plain fun to watch!

My momma thinks Sean Connery is ok too for an old person.

You are Fiona Volpe -- lovely and lethal. The ultimate femme fatale, you're independent enough to resist even Bond's charms.
That sounds pretty mean lol I don't think momma mean anyways ;)
