  • The key to the film, however, is the joyous performance of Mike Myers, who plays both the Beatle-mopped Austin Powers and the bald-headed Dr. Evil.

  • Austin is funny, extremely funny, because he is so ridiculous, and because Myers is a brilliant mimic who, like Martin Short, knows how to do ridiculous. show more

  • A funny movie that only gets funnier the more familiar you are with the James Bond movies, all the Bond clones and countless other 1960s films. show more
