Might as well have given it to Russell Crowe. I mean, he already knows how to kick a$$...

What a shame he can't drive a stick yet alone drive.. Can they bring back Sean Connery? Roger Moore is out of the question. He weighs like 375 now, and could not fit into his own pajamas .

Good grief! He looks like Ross Perot's love child.

He looks like he's had more than one beating - certainly not the suave, sophisticated Bond of the Fleming novels. I think even Moneypenny might turn this one down.

Hey Guys,

I want to learn how to drive stick this summer, any advice? My family owns all automatics, and that isn't going to change. I might get a car that is stick. I have driven stick a few times, but not that much or well. My confidence was shaken the two or three times I have driven it, having trouble shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Do you think the DMV have people who can give you lessons on stick? Kinda like those who train teens to drive? I'm finishing up college, and might get a car in the near future. I would love to own a 3 series, but no way do I want to learn stick on a beauty like that.

Any advice/tips be appreciated.

I don't think the DMV offers this service, but if you don't have a friend with a manual beater to learn then I would suggest any driving school. Look in yellow pages, there's a ton out there.

All the more reason I think Clive Owen would've been a better choice for this part. He has the sophistication and he knows how to drive a stick... he was the BMW "Driver" after all.

Oh and my dad was a HUGE James Bond fan so I watched all of those older movies. He liked Connery the best but I have to say my list goes like this:
1. Moore
2. Brosnan
3. Connery
4. Dalton
5. Lazenby

(I always felt a little cheated they wasted what I thought could have been the best Bond movie on Lazenby.)
As a ex-saleslady, I'm sure you had to demonstrate manual trannies to more than one customer.....probably at more so at Longo Toyota than Longo Lexus.

I basically agree that Moore was the best Bond, far and away. He was the most handsome, most distinguished, carried himself best, and could come up with some good quick-witted lines. Anybody can hop into bed with a voluptious enemy agent.......that takes no talent, but it takes acting talent and looks to do what Moore did. Connery was probably the next-best Bond......good overall but a little rough around the edges and lacking some of Moore's refinement.
