Movie synopsis

AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY is the first in the comic series starring this bodacious 1960s spy played by the hilarious Mike Myers. Decked out in the gaudiest mod attire--ruffled shirts, tight-fitting candy-colored suits, horn-rimmed glasses, and prosthetic teeth--Austin Powers is anything but subtle. His near-constant exclamations of "Groovy, Baby," accompanied an uncandid flash of his flirtatious smile, only add to his wonderfully exaggerated hipster persona. Plotwise, Austin Powers and his enemy Dr. Evil (also played by Myers) awake from 30 years of frozen, cryogenic sleep to find themselves in the year 1997. A conniving Dr. Evil plots a reign of terror and mass destruction, but finds that his ideas and methods are a bit out of date. Our hero encounters a similar dilemma, realizing that he is definitely behind the times. A series of well-meaning though bumbling efforts to thwart the insidious Dr. Evil keep Austin Powers and his devastatingly beautiful partner Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) hard at work as they travel from London to Las Vegas. With this tongue-in-cheek send-up of James Bond spy films and 1960s cliches, director Jay Roach compliments Myers' over-the-top performance with a lighthearted soundtrack, fun photography, and amusingly retro sets.

Editorial reviews

"...Mr. Myers turns his own fondness for Austin into an easily acquired taste....AUSTIN POWERS mixes movie parody with culture shock..."
New York Times - Janet Maslin (05/02/1997)

"...Engagingly daft....You can giggle at the sheer joy Mike Myers takes in making himself as grotesque as possible....No one does it better than Myers..."
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (05/09/1997)

"...A funny movie that only gets funnier the more familiar you are with the James Bond movies....What is best is the puppy-dog earnestness and enthusiasm that Myers brings to his role..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (05/02/1997)

"Myers threw us all a frickin' bone when he created Austin's pinky-gesturing, lip-pursing, Mr. Bigglesworth-stroking nemesis."
Premiere - Premiere Staff (04/01/2004)

"...A welcome return to form for Myers..."
Sight and Sound - Ben Thompson (09/01/1997)

It's Shagadelic, Baby!

Created: 04/06/06
This is an extraordinarily funny movie.

Borrowing from several spy movies and shows from the past, it becomes an amazing conglomeration that will keep the viewer laughing. 1960's clothing and temperament are faithfully followed, then amplified to the point of becoming surreal. The plot is also very much in keeping with the story lines of spy movies past, yet expressed in a way that is campy and amusing.

The characters are very well developed! Mike Myers does a fantastic job of portraying a multitude of characters that are hilarious and extreme.

At first, an unobservant viewer may think that the makers just threw a bunch of stuff together... but the reality is, there are many wonderful undertones and details that demonstrate the care that went into making this movie.

Is it "tacky"? Sure. But it's tackiness raised to the level of being an art form. This is a movie that can be watched more than once, and makes a good contribution to a collection.

Oh behave!

This is Michael Myers' second best flick. So I Married An Axe Murderer is his best in my opinion. His priceless character-acting from SNL has seemlessly transitioned to the big screen. Dr. Evil is memorable, and Liz Hurley is hawt! Out of all the Austin Powers' films, this is the best. Yeah, baby.
