Austin Powers in Goldmember
He's still evil... He's still deadly... and he's still surrounded by frickin' idiots!
The world's most shagadelic spy continues his fight against Dr. Evil. This time, the diabolical doctor and his clone, Mini-Me, team up with a new foe -- '70s kingpin Goldmember. While pursuing the team of villains to stop them from world domination, Austin gets help from his dad and an old girlfriend.
When it comes to comedy Mike Myers is my guilty pleasure and it's easy to see why. From the silliness of Wayne's World and Saturday Night Live through the Austin Powers films to his voice work on Shrek, he's shown a chameleon-like talent for reinvention. Full of creativity and always ready to take on more that one role if required, it was Austin Powers that cemented his place among not only Canada's best comedians but the film world in general.
This third installment of Jay Roach's comic trilogy has one of the best opening sequences in a comedy. Featuring a host of big name stars lampooning Austin Powers characters in a film tribute, this had the likes of Tom Cruise,…
Sometimes you just can't beat a bit of silliness. The Austin Powers films have that in abundance together with more than its share of rather clever jokes and an inspired opening sequence that will bring the giggles. Jay Roach's third installment for our spoof sixties superspy doesn't stray far from the well worn path that delivered the laughs and the box office takings for Mike Myers's most enduring comic creation. Myers's ability in the last twenty years or so to reinvent himself has made him a comedy force to be reckoned with. Wayne's World, Austin Powers, and his voice work on Shrek has rightly cemented his place among the modern comedy greats. Playing four roles here and once again being…
A fucking hilarious and brilliant send off to one heck of an awesome trilogy...!
Put that up your pipe and smoke it!
Not a movie about David Beckham's penis.
Wow, I must be getting old. It felt like only yesterday that I was sitting down with my brothers to watch my first installation of the Austin Powers film franchise (yes, I know, three films too late).
It has some funny moments, and clearly Mike Myers is very creative, but overall these films find it hard to appeal beyond the juvenile, which I genuinely believe we should all indulge in sometimes. Other than that, it has little else going for it...
I remember this being pretty bad at the time and it hasn't aged well. It's the same tired jokes, and tired jokes about making the same tired jokes. Only Beyoncé and Britney at thier respective physical peaks provide interest. 2/10.
this was my favorite of the series when i was ten. that should say it all
Gold at times.
Well, they managed to do it. They actually managed to overdo jokes in Austin Powers to the point that they actually get old and kind of annoying.
Still though, Fat Bastard cracks me up.
This just recycles the same jokes we have already seen in the other two movies, but somewhat it's still funny.
i paid actual money for this
Third (and so far, last) installment in Mike Myers' shagadelic spy spoof series sends Austin time traveling back to 1975, where he teams up with bad-ass superchick agent Foxy Cleopatra (Beyonce Knowles) to foil Dr. Evil's latest scheme and rescue Austin's kidnapped Dad (Michael Caine).
Not as good as the previous two "Austin" films but there is still plenty of immature smirky fun to be had. My fave bit involves a movie being made of Powers' life, with cameos by Tom Cruise as Austin, Kevin Spacey as Dr. Evil, and Gwyneth Paltrow as agent "Dixie Normous."
It's actually better than you remember, while not the best in the series and with a standard this high it's actually the weakest, but that's not a put down. It's just the film lazily rolls out the same old gags and catch phrases without really taking the story any further. However it's still funnier than 90% of other comedies to this day.
Funny! Not much substance but it's a fun time through and through. Mike Myers will make you laugh no matter what character he plays.
