empty minded fun. not everything has to have meaning or depth. sometimes watching stupid jokes and parodies can be relaxing and enjoyable.
Count me among the unimpressed. Mike Myers is about as funny as a stucco bathtub. This movie is less humourous than that.
It's one of those films that you got a sense they had as much fun making it as you had watching it. Meyers was very good as the hero and villain, but the film delivered with great support parts for Robert Wagner, Seth Green, the horny little guy who's name I forget and the brilliant unearthing of Michael York from totla film obscurity.
Not a fan of double 07, but loved the Austin Powers trilogy.
I only liked "The Spy Who Shagged Me."
I am a James Bond fan, so I really got a kick out of Austin Powers.
Austin Powers is a dumb movie. But that's pretty much the point, as it's also damn funny. It really is a pretty good parody of the James Bond movies, especially it's parody of Bond girl names. I also tend to like Myers' portrayal of Dr. Evil much more than that of Powers.
Mike Myers fans look out. From "Wayne's World" to this! Mr. Myers does an excellent job at playing both sides of the "spy" personality. A must have for anyone's collection.
Also another terrible movie.Mike Myers is the worst actor ever
The first film was the best in this series and was a refreshingly different comedy that poked fun at films like James Bond. It could be one of those films that work better in front of a British audience though
was funny in doses....
This is one of the best movies of the 90's. Elizabeth Hurley is one of the hottest women alive!
Mike Myers is terrific in two roles, playing both the hero and his nemesis, Dr.Evil (remember it's Dr.Evil--he didn't go to years at evil medical school to be called Mr.Evil!) This movie was very enjoyable. Myers is great, and so are Elizabeth Hurley, Robert Wagner, Seth Green, the woman who plays Frau, and a few others. This is basically a spoof of James Bond, and it works. I can't too highly recommend this movie, and also its sequel, which is just as good.
Original films on which sequels are based normally loose some of their legacy, eclipsed as it were by the mediocrity of disapointing follow-ups. The first AUSTIN POWERS, if had remained the only AUSTIN POWERS movie, would be more appreciated and remembered now for the unique and surprising comedy that it is. Sorta came out of nowhere didn't it? Well, here's to the first AUSTIN POWERS, not that the sequels are terrible. He didn't hook up with Beyoncé Knowles in GOLDMEMBER and I hope that's not cause she's a chocolate honey like a friend suspected. (I myself was skeptical, but NEVER put it past a major film company.) Wonder what Heather Graham has been up to. She's a doll, but don't express personality like Elizabeth Hurley. Graham was a lot better as Roller Girl in BOOGIE NIGHTS. Maybe it was the skates. Anyway. And here's to Elizabeth Hurley. Ooo La La.
Wonderful with the exception of Elizabeth Hurley's presence....again, the role would have been pulled off better by a blow up doll.
baby, the other other white meat
for a one-time view
A little Mike Meyers goes a long ways.
haha gotta love it
One ove my faves
THIS ONE WAS HILARIOUS....
Varies between creepy and ho hum for me.
In 1967, British hip swinger and spy Austin Danger Powers (Mike Meyers) battles his arch-nemesis Dr. Evil (Mike Meyers) as they both are frozen for a long time in cryo-genetic experiments. 30 years later, Dr. Evil has landed in Nevada and wakes up from his frozen slumber so he can be reunited with most of his henchmen like Frau Farbissina (Mindy Sterlin), Mustafa (Will Ferrell) and Number Two (Robert Wagner) as they come up with a brilliant scheme to get one hundred billion dollars from the world embassy so he can take over the world. In the UK, Basil Exposition (Michael York) who works for the UK goverment unfreezes Austin as he joins up with sexy British intelligence agent Venessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) to Las Vegas so he can foil Dr. Evil's plans. Co-starring Seth Green, Mimi Rogers and Carrie Fisher, this exciting and non-stop funny comedy is one of the best comedies of the 90's. Written by Mike Myers himself, this movie is a geninuely hilarious satire on the James Bond f... Read more

These are pretty funny movies. I like Mike Myers in movies that he plays more than one character....he and Eddie Murphy both are good at it.
