    I've heard it in Croatian, so this would be a translation.


    James Bond and Van Damme are introducing themselves to each other:

    'My name is Bond, James Bond'

    'My name is Damme, Van Damme, Claude van Damme, Jean Claude Van Damme' :lol:

    I've never understood Ian Fleming's use of that name. I realize bits of the Bond books were tongue-in-cheek, but that was just gratuitous school-boy humor. I'm also a little surprised the film makers of Goldfinger didn't change the name a little, given the attitudes of the day, in appealing to the widest possible audiences. In Junior High, I read all the Bond books repeatedly, and I can't, at the moment, think of any Bond ladies with names that blatantly "vulgar".....can anyone? ;)

    Ivana Humpalot, Felicity Shagwell, Alotta Fagina? Oh wait, that's Austin Powers.

    There was a "Xenia Onatopp" in the Golden Eye movie. Never read the books.

    Octopussy? I'm surprised it didn't go to 11.

    i always liked the Bond series. My dad actually found a “Young Bond” book series as I was maybe 5th or 6th grade. And he didn’t see me ready for the real books lol. After years go by and I’ve read the books. I can see his mindset. Same with the Flags of our fathers book. He got me the “adapted for younger readers” book. Then I think freshman year got me the real book. Surprised how much thicker it was….. yea.. they cut out a lot. Lol

    Reminds me of a line from a movie:

    "So what does this whole story mean? The only way to be happy is to know you won't be happy every single day. Lalalalalala. It sounds better in the original Croatian."

    Golden Eye and Octopussy weren't Ian Fleming Bond books.
    Holly Goodhead was a character in the Moonraker film, but DID NOT appear in the book Moonraker by Fleming.
    I admit I'm not very familiar with the "later" Bond films. IMHO, Roger Moore was The Saint.....not James Bond.
    I enjoy the Daniel Craig version.....pretty re-imagined from the original books, but entertaining.

    Incorrect. Octopussy was a short story written by Ian Flemming and published posthumously in 1966. Originally published as Octopussy and The Living Daylights.

    You're correct.....sorry. Somehow I missed that collection. The only short story book I was aware of was The Spy Who Loved Me.

    No need to apologise. Upon further reflection I think the only similarity between the book and the movie is the title.

    The thing is, Bond is a fictitious character and Jean Claude Van Damme is a real person.

    No, in 1950 the last remaining copy of the famous killing joke was laid to rest in the Lika countryside, never to be told again.
