Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery Reviews

This shagadelic James Bond spoof isn't for kids.

...contains its fair share of bathroom humor, much of it childish, a lot of it gross, and some of it hilarious.

There's nothing malevolent about Austin Powers, he's clearly more Clouseau than Dr. Strangelove, and he is born out of affection, for both the period he's from and for a sense of humour that is peculiarly British.

We may not need as many Austin Powers movies as there are James Bond pictures, but one or two more might be nice.

Jay Roach directed with just the right amount of period tackiness.

The bad news is that it's a one-joke picture.

The originals were spoofs in their own way, too, unless you really believe that secret agents look more like Sean Connery than Aldrich Ames.

A loving paean to Bond, Flint, Helm and their ilk (as well as a myriad of outlandish villains), the film knows its turf and only missteps when it ventures into more contemporary territory.

What I enjoyed more than the specific parodies was the spirit behind them.

It would take a stone face not to crumple at Austin's dodgy catchphrases and irrepressible sexual desperation.

I know good silly fun when I see it.

While the film feels a bit like a bunch of skits, it's wickedly funny in trashing the conventions of the movies it apes.

Mike Myers has created such an infectious, and joyful character, you will be forced to say, 'Groovy Baby!', at least once.

Director Jay Roach seems helpless to rein in the addled antics of his star or to give the supporting cast much of a grip on what they're supposed to be doing.
