I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
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!
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...
My brain fell out with itself during this film. My brain told me repeatedly that this was not a funny film yet repeatedly I found myself laughing out loud.
I'm disgusted with myself and confused.
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.
In for a penny in for a pound as they say. It would have seemed odd not to watch the third in the series so here we are.
Austin Powers in Goldmember is the point at which the series completely abandons what may seem like a story. There’s more time travel, villains and sex jokes.
There are lots of cameos to distract you from this though! Within the first five minutes we see Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, Steven Spielberg and Britney Spears. It was so fun in 2002, now it’s… less entertaining.
The cast list got an upgrade too, Beyoncé and Michael Caine join Mike Myers in the battle against Dr. Evil. They are talented enough…
There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.
La verdad es que repite demasiado la fórmula y cuesta encontrar momentos de autentica carcajada, pero hay dos cosas que a mi me la salvan. La secuencia de los créditos iniciales (con los cameos divertidísimos) y Michael Caine, que esta genial como padre de Austin.
Still have to re-visit the previous two entries, but from what I remember from the previous entries, this is just rinse and repeat the jokes.
Letter Grade: B-
"Cool! You mean that I actually have frickin' sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their frickin' heads?"
This is easily my favorite of the Powers trilogy. It's good a better story and way more laughs. I saw this a ton in high school and unlike the first two this one holds up a lot better. Why that is, I really have no clue. I feel like Dr. Evil was easily a better character than Austin Powers throughout the entire trilogy. Mike Myers really killed it in this one as Dr. Evil even more than the first two. I always enjoy it more when the film is with Dr. Evil as opposed to Powers. Sometimes I always…
A significant step down after the first two...

Austin Powers was pretty much a one man show at this point, but this film still worked because that one man was so good at what he did.
Film #8 of Scavenger Hunt 4
Task 4. Film featuring a dwarf(s)
En una historia demasiado seria para ser verdad, Austin Powers intenta detener un plan malvado de su nemesis, con el cual pretende destruir el mundo...
Seamos serios, haha, esta película no puede ser tomada en serio y es por eso que es buena, ¡SHAZAM!
Mike Myers interpreta a la mitad de los personajes y no se puede pedir más, es tan irreal, que no otro comediante podría hacerlo así de bien. Esos personajes secundarios que tanto nos hacen reír regresan por lo que parece fue la ultima vez que los veremos en la pantalla.
Beyonce interpreta a la Bond Girl de esta vez, digo, a la Powers Girl?, anyhow, aquí, antes de ser la fuerza que es hoy, interpreta a Foxy Cleopatra.
Michael Caine brilla como el papá de Austin, un viejo espía y que aun tiene swag.
Todo es irreal, todo es perfecto.
I must have a very VERY lame sense of humor, for this film completely cracks me up!
Dr. Evil seriously is the - best - damn - comedy - character of all time!!
