James Bond might be a great franchise, but it's also had its share of bad creative decisions and misjudged films over the nearly sixty years it's been going. Therefore, despite being so full of amazing movie moments, it's got plenty of awful ones too - especially from the films released in the 1970s and 1980s.
So, what is the worst scene in each of the twenty four James Bond films released to date?
In this regard, the films vary wildly. With some of them, it's hard to pick out any particularly bad scenes. With others, it's actually incredibly easy, since there's one scene that immediately leaps out as the worst. And with the worst films in the franchise, picking any scene as the film's worst is hard since there are so many misjudged moments. Still, one scene must always come out on top.
So, from cringe-worthy jokes to atrocious action scenes, from dated examples of racism and misogyny to horrendous bits of writing, here's the worst scene of each James Bond film, ranked.
Let's hope No Time to Die can avoid anything like these scenes...
