So we went to Washington DC over Easter break and of course went to the International Spy Museum there, pricy but the kids so loved it.

Now, my kids want to watch some good 007 James Bond movies, they are 7, 9 and 11, we watch PG-13 with them, however don't like the extreme violence nor sex scenes.
Most Bond movies in my memory are acceptable, we bought Skyfall and that was a good watch with them.

So, pick me your top (5) 007 James Bond movies ... for me and my kids to watch!

I appreciate the advice.

Of the top of my memory:
Moonraker
The Spy Who Loved Me

I found this site, but trust my fellow AVS'ers advice best

"Good" Bond flicks are about SEX & VIOLENCE!
If you want a "7" yr old too watch that good luck w/the oldest Bond's you can get; even then...
SEX & VIOLENCE!

"I wonder if any of the releases had slipcovers though."
"Are these comfirmed to have slipcovers?"
"They look nice in those slips."
"This slipcover looks too good to pass up."

No quite agreeing, but close. Every parent is sensitive to different stuff, so it's hard to say which violence is too violent, etc.

That said, I'd recommend The Living Daylights to anyone, kid or adult. As far as I remember, there's some almost-nudity and the implication of sex (nothing shown, unrelated to the almost-nudity). The violence is pretty minimal if I recall too. But also keep in mind I don't really typically track that kind of stuff, so something may be in there that would be a big deal to you but didn't leave an impression on me. It's rated PG for whatever that's worth. But my recommendation has nothing to do with any of that. IMO it's the first film on Bond's journey back to realism after the cartoonish excesses of the Moore era, but it hadn't yet gotten too serious to have a sense of humor/fun. I'd actually rank it among the best of the franchise, personally.

Heh...I think all the "safer" ones have been covered. smile.gif Depending on how astute the kids are you might be able to get away with Tomorrow Never Dies (maybe with a quick FF past one scene), but that aside...I dunno...but Diamonds Are Forever and GoldenEye are right out.

...and I need your sweet love, Latina T-Mobile girl!

The older films will be dated for the young ones. My faves that have less graphic sex and violence are For Your Eyes Only, The Spy Who Loved Me, From Russia With Love and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Octopussy is a real blast, but the title is a little daring.

Depends on the kid. My son loved the older Connery Bonds when I started him on them when he was 8 or so. His favorites are the Daniel Craig ones now that he's a teen, but he still likes the old ones quite a bit. He's a bit atypical though.

We've got this thread: Which Bond films have the greatest rewatchability?
