Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while there's no full-frontal nudity, this movie contains a lot of sexual innuendo. The film is largely based around Bond's fondness for women and his casual attitude toward sex, so sexual double entendres abound throughout the film. The violence factor is high, with explosions, fist fights, gun battles, and a strangling. The politics are cold war and likely to be completely baffling to younger teens.

Is It Any Good?
It is in this film that James Bond seems to emerge as a particularly unique character, following the more disaffected Bond of Dr. No. While the plot gets somewhat obscured in a few rather befuddling dialogue exchanges, the charm of Connery as Bond is strong enough to keep the film mostly engaging. That said, the self-mocking tone of the later Bond films is missing, and there are moments where younger viewers, used to more fast-paced action films, may find themselves twiddling their thumbs while waiting for the next burst of action.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
