Three hilarious films starring Mike Myers as the groovy special agent, Austin Powers; INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY, THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME, and GOLDMEMBER. See individual titles for further information.
AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY: The dastardly doings of Dr. Evil lead to his escape into outer space and the cryogenic freezing of super-agent Austin Powers. Thirty years later Dr. Evil returns to earth to bring about terror and mass destruction but finds his ideas and methods a bit out of date. So too does our hero who upon being thawed out, finds he's a bit behind the times as well. Well meaning and bumbling efforts to thwart the insidious Dr. Evil keep Austin and his devastatingly beautiful partner Vanessa busy from London to Las Vegas. Freedom in the '90s, baby! A hilarious send up of James Bond spy films and 1960s schtick.
AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME: In his second screen adventure, British super-spy Austin Powers must return to 1969, as arch-nemisis Dr. Evil has ventured back to that year and successfully stolen Austin's "mojo" (libido!) and set up an ultra-powerful cannon and aimed it at the Earth. With the help of gorgeous agent Felicity Shagwell, the newly single Austin must now not only contend with Dr. Evil, but also Evil's vicious, pint-size attack-clone, Mini-Me. Also in this installment, Evil's son, Scott, finds out who his mother is and Mike Myers stars as a third character, rotund Scotsman Fat Bastard. More raucous fun in the spirit of its 1997 smash predecessor.
AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER: The third movie in the Austin Powers series, stars Mike Myers in director Jay Roach's James Bond Sci-Fi 1970s funkadelic formula--a hyper-stylized backdrop to what is ultimately Myers' one-man show.
GOLDMEMBER is a family affair. Austin has a few unresolved issues with his dear old dad, Nigel Powers (the dead ringer Michael Caine, who is also a good sport), and he hopes to work out some Freudian tension when he's not saving the world from the forces of evil. Myers flexes his actor muscles and portrays a more thoughtful, and--is it even possible--a slightly less geeky Austin in this film. Likewise, even the bad guys show some new personality: Dr. Evil reveals a penchant for talking like a hip-hop, wise-ass homeboy, and the new villain Goldmember (the latest in Myers' repertoire) is an enigmatic amputee with a heart of gold who speaks with a Dutch accent and eats his own peeling skin. If that's not disgusting enough, Fat Bastard, the greasy behemoth from the THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME, appears again in GOLDMEMBER, delving into new and nasty scatological territory. But the joke's on us, because GOLDMEMBER's toilet humor is so extreme that it dissolves into a harmless fit of giggles, keeping viewers laughing from start to finish.
