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

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 »
Here we are into the third installment of "Austin Powers" and sadly it is wearing thin. We don't have the same originality that the first one brought or the usually funny jokes. Now while the ideas were good and it seemed strong, it just didn't give.
The beginning is classic and it seemed like this was going to be great. I mean, we have Tom Cruise playing Austin Powers, Kevin Spacey as Dr. Evil, John Travolta as Goldmember, and Danny Devito as Mini Me in the Austin Powers movie! Just great and brilliant. But then the actual movie starts, Felicity is not here for no explained reason and Austin is single. Leading him to Foxxy Cleopatra, played by Beyonce and is way too stereotypical. Fat Bastard is also back and tries too hard with his disgusting jokes that fall flat.
Dr. Evil is still pretty funny, but again just loosing his touch. We have a brilliant idea of Michael Caine as Austin's dad, but it's a hit and miss with Caine's dull performance. Goldmember, also played by Myers, is just too disgusting and tries too hard to impress the audience as another funny villain. Scott has now decided to take over the family business, which takes his cool and unique style away. :( Mini Me is push aside then from Dr. Evil and he joins up with Austin to try again for that "shocking and ironic" laugh of him now being a Mini Austin. The ending is just ridicules.
I'm sorry, this just didn't amuse me that much. The jokes were overused and not funny any more. There are too many stereotypical performances in here and the only thing worth watching is the beginning with the amazing cameo's. That was unforgettable, but the rest is just a skip. So, pass on this one, guys, it's not worth your time really.
6/10-and 4 points of that goes to the beginning!
