Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
Dr. Evil uses a device he calls a "Time Machine" to travel back to 1969 and remove Austin Powers' mojo. The sexually wounded swinger must travel back in time and, with the help of agent Felicity Shagwell, recover his vitality. Meanwhile, Dr. Evil's personal life runs amok as he discovers love, continues to shun his son and develops a close relationship with himself. Well, actually, a clone 1/8 his size whom he dubs "Mini-Me". The always time-baffled Dr. Evil begins his plan to put a gigantic cannon on the moon, thus turning it into a device called either "The Death Star" or "Alan Parson's Project," depending on which name is available.

In the U.S., "shag" is far less offensive than in other English-speaking countries. Singapore briefly forced a title change to "The Spy Who Shioked Me" ("Shioked" means "treated nicely"). See more »
When Felicity is hammering the tennis racket into Austin's "shadow", it is almost up to the strings when the camera moves to the guards outside the tent. When the camera turns back to the shadow, it is only "in" up to the middle of the handle. See more »
Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery, was frozen in 1967 and defrosted in the Nineties to battle his nemesis, Dr. Evil. After foiling his archenemy's plan to send a nuclear warhead to the center of the earth, Austin banished Dr. Evil to the cold recesses of space and settled down with his new wife, Vanessa, to live happily ever after. Or so he thought.

This movie is devoid of value. Just a lot of disgusting, vile scenes in a deplorable attempt at being funny. The "humor" is sickening. Everyone, except the people who profited, would be better off had this movie not been made.
If this is the best director Jay Roach can do then he needs to finds himself another occupation.
I bought the DVD because Heather Graham is in the movie. But her acting talents are wasted. I'm going to dump this movie as fast as I can find a buyer. It's not worth buying, renting, owning or watching.
A waste of Mike Myers talents too. Any of Heather Graham's other movies will provide more entertainment than this foul piece of film making.
