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

The opening credits are initially for the movie-within-the-movie "Austinpussy" before going onto the real credits. See more »
Various corporate logos are blurred out throughout the TV version, like the Taco Bell logo on the food Frau brings in, and the Apple logo on the Powerbook Austin uses (in this case, it is "painted" over with gray to match the rest of the computer). 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.
