5 Worst Bond Girls

06/12/02 by Qubert

Since the premiere of  Dr. No in 1962 and the magical image of Ursula Andress emerging from the sea (see her here), James Bond has been about beautiful women.  But in 30 years of filmmaking, they weren't all winners.  Some were a complete waste of time and good film.  Look below to see my picks for the most awful of them all:

Britt Eckland

As the bimbette Mary Goodnight in The Man With the Golden Gun, Britt represented everything wrong with the Bondian image of women:  she was stupid, clumsy, and only good for one thing!  At least she was cute, something I can't say for some of ladies on this list.


Jill St. John

Tiffany Case?  What kind of name is that for a big haired, no personality-having  hanger-on in Diamonds Are Forever?  And not that hot, either. . .



Maud Adams

She shares that rare distinction -- with Joe Don Baker and Walter Gotell -- of playing two different characters in two different Bond films:  The Man With the Golden Gun and the title role in Octopussy.  Older-looking, even when she's not.


Tonya Roberts

Did anyone believe that Tonya's character Stacey Sutton, poster-girl for 80's ditzyness, was actually a geologist?  The director of A View to a Kill could have at least dressed her in sexy clothes. . .



Denise Richards -- the Absolute Worst!

Dr. Christmas Jones from The World is Not Enough wins the award for lamest of them all.  Sure, Denise makes boys and men alike ache with desire.  But she offers some of the weakest acting this side of Vivid Video, and she's totally unbelievable as a nuclear physicist.
