I think this is the funniest of the three movies and I liked the first two.

A few truly hilarious moments...[but] this franchise that began as a first class mockery of espionage cliches is becoming an amalgam of canned stories and recycled material.

The films are unusual in that they've actually gotten better as they've gone on, meaning that Goldmember is the best of the three.

Like a fish that's lived too long, Austin Powers in Goldmember has some unnecessary parts and is kinda wrong in places.

There are two things you should know about it: 1.) it is not as inspired as the previous two films; and 2.) it is still very, very funny.

it seems to me the film is about the art of ripping people off without ever letting them consciously know you have done so

Continues the Austin Powers tradition of innovating while sticking to the mandatory bathroom humor machine.

What Mike Myers has succeeded in doing with Goldmember is becoming an actor of Peter Sellers stature.

Although the eurphoria is apparent for Austin Powers-mania, why risk the need of squeezing out another installment of a revered movie character dangerously looking to overstay his cinematic welcome in exhausting fashion?

once Goldmember, like its predecessors in the series, is played dozens of times .... its humor will reach the sublime level that is expected of it.

Basically just recycles many of its used-up jokes, most of which aren't as funny the second (and sometimes, third) time around.

Little more than a scattershot, scatological vaudeville review of uneven gags.

It's an ode to indecent joy.
Marshall Fine
Journal News (Westchester, NY)

The fun in Goldmember lies in the bottomless capacity by writers Myers and Mike McCullers for raunchy jokes that are both sophomoric and funny.

Most movies are about penises, on one level or another, but this one doesn't pretend not to be, and you have to give Mike Myers 1000 bonus points for that.

They don't make them like this anymore, and I can't even think of another actor or character that could pull this off right now.

Goldmember is to The Spy Who Shagged Me as Superman III is to Superman II. It is all on the level of getting hit in the balls with a globe. Heeeee-larious!

That insistent scratching noise you hear throughout Austin Powers in Goldmember is the sound of filmmakers scraping the very bottom of the barrel.
