Topic: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

Bond has been referenced/spoofed hundreds of times, some spoofs better than others, and some references more subtle than others. However, what is your favourite spoof of a Bond film moment? Or reference to a moment?

My favourites:

- Moonraker sky diving spoof - Get Smart
- Random Task - Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
- "I didn't know there was a pool down there" - The Wolverine
- Ejector Seat - Johnny English
- Convoluted death/escape - Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
- Oddjob's Hat - Robot Chicken

Not sure so much if it is spoof, but the entire scene in Catch Me If You Can including Bond theme, Aston and Leo in the SC GF grey suit - brilliant.

I love that sequence as well. I am very fond of that film, and that scene was probably one of the primary reasons that I liked it on first viewing.

That scene is why I watched the film! Only to be disappointed that the suit was very inaccurate, Americanized copy. But the rest of the film was great!

The movie I Love You Man has some hilarious Bond references with trying on a tuxedo and making "license to sell" real estate billboards.

The Incredibles did a great job of replicating the vibe in its later scenes, with Barry-esque music and Adam-esque villain's HQ

more specifically, in Trainspotting, one of the junkies was always imitating Connery's shibilansh and had his works hidden in the heel of his shoe!

Yeah! Including "T-Dalt" and "Get out of my dreams and into my car."

To anyone in the UK Toast of London final episode of season one Bonus Ball, has a sequence where Steven Toast auditions for the role of Bond which is hilarious.

Sick Boy is one of my favourite characters in trainspotting, because of his love of Bond.

That scene with Renton in the park was hilarious!

I like it when Toast walks in and says Havers, Fassbender  ajb007/lol Think Arnold did the Bonus Ball theme song with Michael Ball.

Yes, as you said earlier, loads of little nods.   ajb007/cheers

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

I watched this old 90s CGI cartoon as a kid named Reboot and they had an episode called ''Firewall'' and it was absolutely filled with Bond spoofs, right down to the pre-opening scene and a title song also called Firewall.

Thank you for taking the time to read this sig. This sig loves you.

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

There's also the American  Dad  episodes Tearjerker and For Your Black Eye Only.

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

There is also of course the excellent I'm Alan Partridge episode Never Say Alan Again, based around Alan preparing his Bind marathon, ultimately ruined and leading him to re enact the opening the The Spy Who Loved Me. Classic. "Bit of bush! What was that? Too late!"

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

I really liked the second OSS 117 movie.

The guy looks really like Connery in parts and what he does with his eyebrows is hilarious!

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

Which of his "Parts" looks like Connery's ?  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

The 1983 movie The Return Of The Man From UNCLE has George Lazenby reprising his role as Bond - driving an Aston Martin he helps Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo during a car chase. George looks great and Patrick MacNee turns up as the new boss as Leo G Carroll had passed away by the time the movie was made. Well worth looking out for.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Yes. I though the first movie was better, but both are great and Bond-like.

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon in The Trip are always referencing bond and doing their impressions of connery and Moore, I particularly like a conversation they had as Bond and Harry palmer, Brydon as SC and Coogan as Michael Caine.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: Your favourite spoof/references of Bond film moments

I really liked this closing scene of an episode of Mad Men that showed the main character, Don Draper, channeling the Bond ethos in its proper 60s setting to the soundtrack of YOLT.  Warning, montage includes genuine coitus and male nudity   ajb007/amazed :
