Crazy Credits

During the credits the entire screen is bordered by drawings of birds and flowers. At the start of the credits on the left half of the screen are videos of the various characters, not really outtakes but similar, while the credits roll on the right. Once the videos end, the credits spring to the center of the screen. Throughout all of this there is movement by different parts of the border images -- birds flap their wings, flowers shake and so forth. See more »

User Reviews

The long lost Austin Powers fun we've been waiting for.
21 February 2021 | by superlip2003See all my reviews

Watched this with zero expectation oh boy we laughed so hard. Did NOT see that hilarious "death-defying" twist coming either. Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are amazing not a dull moment fun and feel good start till the end. Almost for the first time forever I wish they develop a sequel to this :)
