Roger Moore surrounded by beautiful women in Octopussy

Octopussy (1983)

This film, with its exotic Indian setting and memorable characters is more than just a risqué title. For the record, it comes from the leading lady (Maud Adams), who got her nickname from her Octopi-expert father. Anyway, although it has plenty of outlandish elements (Bond dresses like a clown, a mini-jet emerges from a fake horse's rear end), Octopussy is actually a fairly believable tale of jewel smuggling, a greedy Afghan prince and a rogue Soviet general hell-bent on invading the West. The chemistry between Moore and Adams is undeniable, while Octopussy herself is one of the series' better characters.
