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

It is unclear how Dr. Evil and Mini-Me returned to the present day, after the time portal was destroyed along with the moonbase at the end of the previous film. It was speculated that Dr. Evil's rocket may have had a device that allowed them to time travel. It was also speculated that Dr. Evil and Mini-Me returned to Earth and constructed another time portal, explaining how Goldmember came into possession of a time portal and it was also speculated that following the destruction of the moonbase, Dr. Evil and Mini-Me returned to the volcanic lair and returned to the present via the other time portal, which Dr. Evil, Mini-Me and Scott Evil arrived through from 1999.

When Dr. Evil and Mini-Me are escaping the prison on the motorcycle, you can hear the bike shift gears, but you never see Dr. Evil let off the gas and pull the clutch lever in. See more »
While this is still not as funny as the first one, it's still worth watching. It has a load of recycled jokes from both of the earlier films, and a little too many references to the first, in my opinion. It's not entirely bad though, after a slow start it kicks off and gets very funny, very quickly. Most of the old characters return, with a few new ones too. The plot is pretty much the same old deal from the first two, still spoofing old Bond movies. The acting is still pretty good. The characters are more colorful in this one, I think. More developed, perhaps. The sexual crude humor is still there, and is better here than in the second movie, I think. The first is still the best, but if you only see one of the sequels, I recommend you see this one. I thought the twist-in-the-end was pretty lame, but it didn't entirely ruin the movie, as it didn't seem totally out of character or totally unbelievable. I'd recommend this to anyone who liked either or both of the first two movies. The humor is mostly the same, and people who enjoyed the first two will most likely also enjoy this one. 7/10
