There's a fine line between wit and absurdity, and this particular movie too often falls on the wrong side.

Octopussy is a very minor entry in the Bond franchise.

Worst of the Roger Moore Bond films has a license to bore.

Octopussy features 2 stand-out action sequences but for the most part, it's an overlong, sluggish, and schizophrenic entry in the Bond series.

Considering Bond gets disguised as an ape, a crocodile and a clown, the film has a lot more to be embarrassed about than its title.

More sexual innuendo than usual in provocatively named film.

James Bond is old. Wrinkled-forehead old. Lecherous-coot old. Strategic-hairstyle old. Senior meal-discount old. Simply ... old. That's the biggest takeaway from Roger Moore's second-worst outing as 007, hot on the heels of his second-best.

Bond had degenerated into a male model, and something of a genial anachronism.

The joy of a great Bond movie is the way it pushes the limits of believability -- and knows when to stop. Octopussy fails.

May satisfy die hard Bond fans, but won't work for anyone else. Among the franchise's weakest efforts.

I've never been a big fan of this Bond flick. Catchy name, though.

[Director John Glen] keeps the excitement level high for an hour or so, then lets the show slip into the doldrums.
