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...
Not a movie about David Beckham's penis.
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.
There is nothing for me here.
A tragic demise to an otherwise flawless film series.
I think this is the one where you discover that this series has gone through all of the possible comedy ideas. They do a lot of joke repeats from the first two, but not in a crazy fun unique way. Instead this kind of just what we've seen in the last couple.
But whatever, I still laugh throughout the whole movie. I especially like the opening and ending. I would gladly take the first and second in this series first, but all three are funny enough for me to enjoy myself.
Well, holy shit. The twists in this movie and Spectre are basically the same. Sadly it works better here.
I remember this being funnier a decade ago, whenever I saw it. It's still okay, because the characters were dreamed up well a long time ago, but like any sequel, the waters are too well-tread upon for a third movie.
Another point to make is that Myers seems to let certain jokes well past the point of one-liners. It's a comedic scheme that I see most on "Family Guy", where the joke goes on so long it becomes funnier because they won't stop the joke at the obvious point.
As always, I did not care for the family element of an otherwise un-familial tale. It's as hackneyed a premise as throwing a love story into a spy movie, but it gets added nonetheless.
It's still dumb comedy, and you will still laugh enough though.
