Storyline

He's found his mojo, baby, and now Austin Powers is back again in this 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, 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 to stop Dr. Evil and Goldmember from their mischievous mayhem.

Trivia

Young Dr Evil says "Who throws a cupcake, honestly". This is a joke referring to a line Austin has in the original film; "Who throws a shoe, honestly". See more »

Goofs

When Dr. Evil turns good at the end, this is highly unlikely. He was raised evil and spent 6 years in evil medical school, so it is very unlikely that he would change so drastically in just a few seconds. See more »

OK- but the worst out of the three
3 December 2002 | by (Surrey, England) – See all my reviews

To be brutal, this movie is cynical. I mean, Mike Myers is a funny guy, but this constant rehash of old material (see the radar jokes, the shadow-on-the-wall, the father-son misunderstandings) is just a bit worrying and suggests Mr. Myers has run out of ideas.

There are some classic moments in the movie, like the beginning sequence, and the shadow-on-the-wall sequence involving Mini-me, but the whole thing stinks of self-indulgence and money-making rather than originality or passion.

I felt myself, straining to laugh throughout the 90 minutes or so I was in the cinema, and I SO wanted to love this movie as I loved the previous two installments. Mike Myers is funny, and Beyonce Knowles is surprisingly good too, but Michael Caine isn't given the right material to shine and the Osbournes cameo verges on the pointless.

Good, but not your best effort. Austin Powers 4? No thank you
