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.
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.Written by

One of the signs in Dr. Evil's submarine illustrates how henchmen should correctly lift an unconscious captive in order to prevent any back pain. It reads "Lift with your legs, not with your back". See more »
Dr. Evil is explaining his plan to use the tractor beam to attract the meteor to melt the polar ice caps. In the video, you see Midas 22 hitting the northern ice cap and flooding the world. There is no land mass, or "ice cap" on the north pole. See more »
The credit for the company that created the animatronic sharks reads: "Sharks with frickin laser beams" See more »
In Roboto's office, the subtitles read "Please eat some shit" when blocked by a white tea kettle on his desk. Apon moving it, the full subtitle reads "Please eat some shitake mushrooms." In the TV version, it's changed to "Please eat some dung" and when fully uncovered reads "Please eat some Dungeness crab." See more »
The first two Austin Powers movies were brilliant, but "Goldmember" is where the cracks are beginning to show. The first half is really funny ("Master Evil" "Fook Mi" etc.) but the characters get old pretty fast, and Goldmember, the Dutch villain, just isn't funny. Part of the problem is that we're too familiar with Austin, Dr. Evil, Mini Me, etc., and part of it is the 1960's spy formula is wearing thin. I hope this is the last one, the first two are great and worth seeing, but see this one only if you must see the third installment. 6 out of 10.
