Deserves a Woof but I still like it

If any movie deserves a woof rating on here then Boat Trip is that movie. Its so bad that I really like it. I gave it three stars because I have watched it several times and have to laugh each time. It not well written. Its not directed well. The acting is way over the top. And its treatment of sterotypes is embarrassing. But I still get like it. I can't explain why.
I have read many books and critics of the Bond movies and Man With The Golden Gun is never listed as a favorite. Its usually listed near the bottom of the list. I, however really like this one. Its one of my favorite Roger Moore Bonds and ranks high on my overall Bond list also. Christopher Lee is a wonderful villan. The movie is great fun and not to be taken seriously.
This is not one of the best Bond films, but also not one of the worst. I have to admit I liked it a lot more when I first saw it years ago and find that it has not aged all that well. Its a good introduction for the Roger Moore Bonds though. It gives you a good idea of the direction the series will be taking.
