You Only Live TwiceClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that You Only Live Twice is the fifth James Bond movie, and the fifth starring Sean Connery. It contains much cartoonish violence, with fighting, shooting, stabbing, and minor characters killed, with very little blood and no consequences. The main character is also a womanizer, kissing and or/sleeping with at least four women over the course of the movie, though no nudity or graphic sex is shown. Bond is also a drinker, consuming both vodka and sake in this movie. The only language is the word "damn." Younger movie buffs may be interested in catching up with the early movies in this series that continues today, and especially the ones with Sean Connery, whom many consider the best of all Bonds.
- Sexual Content
- No nudity or graphic sex scenes are shown, but Bond is very clearly amorously involved with several women during the course of the movie. Mostly we just see kissing and hugging as characters fall into bed (or on the ground). Bond is shown in bed with a Chinese woman in Hong Kong (he asks her why Chinese women "taste different"). Later he kisses a redheaded assassin, gets a massage from a group of Japanese girls (one of them uses the phrase "sexiful"), sleeps with one of them, and then marries (!) another and sleeps with her.
- The movie contains much fighting, explosions, shooting, stabbing, and killing, with a minimum of blood. It's all very cartoonish. A little blood is shown when Bond fakes his own death in the opening sequence. Characters die by falling into piranha-filled water. Ninjas are involved, complete with various martial arts weapons and fighting.
- "Damn" is used once.
- Social Behavior
- Bond is a force for good, working to save the world, but his methods -- fighting, killing -- and behavior -- drinking, womanizing, etc. -- are questionable. The movie is set in Japan and contains some minor stereotyping (mostly a product of the times). Women characters are mostly for show.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Bond drinks quite often during the movie, mostly vodka, but also sake in one scene.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
