    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

    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

    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.
