A world-class playboy and part-time special agent, Powers is defrosted after 30 years in a cryogenic freeze to match wits with his nemesis, Dr. Evil (also played by Myers). Possessing antiquated spy skills and mod mannerisms from the `60s, Austin must confront a villain like no other while making peace with his own out-of-date, swinging sexuality.

Audience Reviews for Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

  • May 23, 2015
    Still a great spoof comedy. Dr. Evil's monologue in the group therapy scene is one of my favorite bits ever.

    True, it's filled with dated 90's pop culture references, weak dialogue, and jokes that can sometimes descend into 5th grade levels of juvenile humor. But I'd be lying if I said this Mike Myer's "James Bond" spoof wasn't hilarious. Myers does a great job portraying two characters (The Dr. Evil scenes are by far the greatest highlights of the film). It's fun stupid comedy romp, especially if you are a fan of the James Bond franchise because there are loads of homages to the Sean Connery-era.

    Great for some yuks and pop culture references! And I know Elizabeth Hurley isn't really the It Girl anymore and she has come across as vapid and culturally unaware in soundbites, but I really think she is the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.

    "Yeah baby, yeah." Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a groovy comedy that's quite happening. The story follows '60s superspy Austin Powers who's awoken from cryostasis when the infamous supervillain Dr. Evil rises to threat the world with annihilation. The film is well written and clever in how it satirizes the '60s spy genre (particularly James Bond). Mike Myers and Elizabeth Hurley lead the cast and give fairy strong performances. Myers is especially suited for this type of outlandish comedy and pulls it off well. However, the humor does get a bit too juvenile at times and a number of the jokes outstay their welcome. Yet despite its flaws, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a swingin' joint that's far out.
