Hilarious spoof of '60s spy and babe movies. Groovy '60s spy Austin Powers (Myers) discovers that his arch-enemy, Dr. Evil (Myers again) has frozen himself in order to elude capture, so the swingin' dentally challenged Brit decides to do the same. They awaken 30 years later in the same state: woefully out of touch. Dr. Evil is attempting to blackmail the British government and deal with his Gen-X son, Scott Evil (Green), who wants more quality time and less world conquest. Austin, on the other hand, is trying to "shag" every "groovy bird" he sees. He is teamed with Vanessa (Hurley), the daughter of his former partner, and they try to stop the evil machinations of...well..Evil. A festival of crushed velvet, political incorrectness, and female robots with lethal breasts. Myers revels in playing the fool, and he may step over the line every once in a while, but he gets plenty of mileage out of the one-joke premise.

When this movie came out, I was around 8 years old. I remember watching it but since I was really young, I didn't get all the dirty jokes that were being made. Now when I watch it, I can laugh because I know what is going on. Austin loves beautiful women and sexual activities, yet he is not one bit attractive. Somehow, the women all like him a lot. Mike Myers plays perfect comedy roles in this movie as several characters. The female robots with guns as boobs are cool. The guns are totally unexpected! I once dressed up as them for a costume contest and won! Er. Evil has a weird but funny laugh, and my little sister does a perfect impression of it. It is hilarious! This is a perfect movie for a good laugh with a bunch of dirty jokes included. I probably shouldn't have watched it when I was little but now I can enjoy this movie.
