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.Written by

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.

uggghhhh.... so how is this funny? It's depressing!
If I had merely 1/600th of the monstrous advertising budget of this film, I think even I could have made a better movie.
Relentlessly annoying, badly written, unfunny movie stars Michael Myers (not the Halloween one) basically making an ass of himself the way he does best. There are a total of two funny moments in this film (one a lengthy reprisal of the Jerry Springer show, though overdone; and another involving a guard idiotically jumping into a pool of magma). Other than that, the humor is moronic, repetitive, and obnoxious. Many of the Myers's monologues seem as though he is coming up with his dialog on the spot, particularly in the case of fat bastard. It's mind-boggling how even Will Farrel's cameos wasn't even funny. Is this what cinematic entertainment is coming to? Had it the micro-budget the script deserved, this film would have been forgotten long ago.
Of course this movie made a lot of money, even though it was directed with all the stylistic panache' of Ed Wood and Bruno Mattei, though far less humorous than any of their efforts.
One more thing - what was Michael York doing in this movie? I felt sorry for such a great actor being reduced to such a minimal cameo, though Charles Napier was just as much a victim in this film. One can see in them the same embarrassment that Richard Harris felt as he "acted" in Tarzan The Ape Man, which was twice the film this is.
