It has pretty much all the elements that Moore's films was accused off, campy, a never ending parade of Dad jokes. Plus Bond spends a lot of time essentially trolling Goldfinger, and poorly, Goldfinger sees it a mile off and outright tells Bond to cut it out.
Awesome film regardless.

All the Bonds have their moments...but Moore's Bond leads the pack.
We'll agree to disagree then. I felt that early Connery and all of Craig are much more in tune with the Bond in print. Moore killed people, but the buffoonery all around made it more camp than Bond.
