MPAA Rated PG-13 for nudity, sex-related dialogue and humor

Sex & Nudity

  • A running joke involves Austin having a penis enlargement pump, which he embarrassingly admits is not his.
  • Brief nudity, but inanimate objects (coincidentally) cover Austin Powers ' genitals. Not that bad at the very beginning of the movie when he travels to the 60s.
  • A group of Fembots are caressing Austin in bed while one of them stands over him and unzips her dress.
  • A character named Alotta Fagina. Just to clarify: At first glimpse of the spelling, it looks like the character's gay, but the "g" is pronounced like a "j", so it's a play on "alotta vagina", not "alotta f*ggots".
  • Everything here is played for laughs and is mostly double-entendres.
  • Only the beginning is inappropriate when Austins sensitive parts are covered with objects
  • More Mild than some James Bond Movies

Violence & Gore

  • A hitman sneaks up a bathroom stall to strangle Austin, only for him to fight back, struggling to get the garrote wire off from his neck and, when he's finally free, Austin grabs the man by the torso and sticks his head into the toilet, drowning him. We hear the man groaning and gargling loudly as he struggles to breathe, only to stop moving afterward and dying. This entire scene is a little bit intense due to the actions of it, but is quick and is all done for laughs.
  • Completely slapstick, all played for laughs.
  • Austin punches a woman at a nightclub who turns out to be a man in drag who's working for Dr. Evil. The man then pulls out a knife, but Vanessa's mom hits him several times, disarming him.
  • Several guards draw their guns on Evil's "fembots" (female robots) but are drawn under their spell and lower their weapons. Gun barrels then come out of a fembots' bra and all of the guards are mowed down by machine gun fire.
  • One of Evil's men throws his shoe that hits Austin on the head. The man then begins to strangle Austin who puts his penis enlarger pump on the man's crotch. Vanessa finally knocks out the man with bottles of champagne.
  • A hitman's is killed by his head stuck in a pool with sea bass. His body is then pulled out, missing a head, neck bloody, though obviously fake.


  • Character names are mild in the first movie
  • Frickin is used about 4 times Shag is used 4 to 7 times
  • 6 uses of "Frickin'" (in place of the "f' word), 3 "s" words, 2 hells, 1 "ass" word, and

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Austin and Vanessa have champagne with dinner. Later, they're seen drinking more and Vanessa appears to be slightly drunk. She wants Austin to kiss her, but he refuses saying it wouldn't be right since she's drunk.
  • Austin lights up many cigarettes at once and then tosses them into the fembots mouths.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 100% played for laughs.
  • Nothing frightening or intense. This is a spoof film.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • Austin and Vanessa are seen in bed (after they've been married). Later, she walks nude toward the camera, but Austin's (who's also nude) foreground movements cover her private areas (such as in the similar scenes described above). Pieces of fruit cover her breasts, as does a painting of breasts. He then pours milk from two pitchers that cover her breasts, and one of the spouts looks like it would be Austin's penis. Likewise, Vanessa blows up a balloon that also looks like it's coming from his groin.
