" Yeah baby yeah". The story is about a 60's special agent, Austin Powers, is wakened from his Cryo-sleep to combat Dr. Evil who is threatening to kill millions for one million dollars... or was it 100 billion dollars. This movie has awesome cameo's and a funny script.

Mike Myers sends up 60s spy movies perfectly and introduces two of the great comic creations of recent years. The sequel is even better.

The best from the franchise. A wonderful cast, brilliant script and a likable protagonists. Produced one of the popular quotes around: Austin Powers - "Yeah, baby, yeah!" "Groovy, baby!" "Do I make you horny, baby? Yeah, do I?" So many hilarious scenes and impressive costumes/set pieces. Lots of cameos like Will Ferrell, Carrie Fisher, Tom Arnold, Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, Neil Mullarkey, and Burt Bacharach. Myer's really transformed himself to Austin Powers. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery was a cut above the rest in terms of Bond spoofs, era based pop culture coupled with groovy soundtracks.

A good spoof of 60's James Bond and 90's pop culture. Some jokes are clever, others crass. But most are funny and that's what counts.

This is the best of the series and actually works pretty well as a send-up of British secret agent films. The humor here is at its sharpest, before the series went for the lowbrow joke first.

This sort of thing IS my bag, baby!

The first Austin Powers flick is still funny today, despite several catchphrases ("Do I make you horny, baby?", "Oh, behave!", etc.) having long since worn out their welcome and an unimaginative second sequel (Goldmember). There are two primary reasons why this movie is comic gold:

1. It's the best James Bond spoof you'll ever see. (You can take my word for it: I'm a HUGE 007 fan.)

2. The dialogue crackles with wit and is delivered flawlessly by the cast.

For reference, check out the scene where Dr. Evil struggles to come up with a contemporary scheme that *hasn't* already happened: "Oh, hell. Let's just do what we always do: hijack some nuclear weapons and hold the world hostage."

Or how about when Austin tries to live dangerously by staying at five while playing Blackjack wi...
