yes "diamonds" is a classic, even though there is no Aston Martin, just space buggies. i agree with you about "never say never again" i thought kim bassinger was the worst bond girl ever.
I don't think "Diamonds" measures up to "Goldfinger" or "From Russia With Love" as far as all-time Bond classics go. Â By that time, Connery wanted out of the role. As for bad Bond girls, I'll see your Kim Basinger and raise you Denise Richards.
