Speculation on a movie role for Mariah began when many fans observed that the
video for Honey is like a mini-movie, and does place Mariah in an acting role
of sorts. This is much apart from her other videos, just as her intention to
move into making movies is unexpected. As recently as two years ago she
laughed in disbelief at the very idea.
Interestingly, the Honey video has more in common with a James Bond story
than simply the broad brush strokes of plot and subtle nuances of extravagant
costumes and tongue-in-cheek acting. The bikini costume which Mariah wears is
almost identical to that worn by Ursula Andress' character, Honey Ryder, in
the first ever James Bond film, Dr No (1962).
