-Stephen Hunter, The Washington Post
He's found his mojo, baby, and now Austin Powers (Mike Myers, Shrek) strikes gold in his newest 24-karat shagadelic comedy-adventure!
The "sshhh!" hits the fan when Dr. Evil and Mini-Me escape from prison. Joining forces with the superfreaky Goldmember, they kidnap Austin's father, master spy Nigel Powers (Oscar winner Michael Caine), in a dastardly time-travel scheme to take over the world. Before you can say "Shake Your Booty," Austin cruises to 1975 and teams up with sexy Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyonce Knowles, R&B group Destiny's Child) to stop Dr. Evil and Goldmember from their mischievous mayhem.
With Michael York, Robert Wagner, Seth Green, Mindy Sterling and Vern J. Troyer.
"Mike Myers is a comic genius!
-Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
I hate Mike Myers and I didn't like the first two Austin Powers movies, but I was amazed to find that I enjoyed this one. That's not to say that it's one of my favorites, it isn't and I have to be in a certain mood to watch it, but it is funny. Besides, any movie where Britney Spears's head explodes is fine by me.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
