It all adds up to one of the most refreshing, ambitious and hilarious comedies I've ever seen.

Spy movie parodies are common, but Myers is observant enough to notice things that others haven't.

Mike Myers may be a connoisseur of the old spy-and-sex genre, but the result is less a screenplay than a manic quote machine.

Myers seems to get better and better with each script he writes, and here he managed to make light of a subject that few people gave much thought to.

The film's singlemindedness is so dauntless and just plain nutty that it's hard to resist.

Myers and director Jay Roach seem to have no sense of how long is too long to stick with an extended gag.

Though there many hilarious moments, just as many miss the mark, some falling flat completely.

The things it's parodying -- Beatles and Bond movies and all those secret-agent TV shows of the 60s -- were already so tongue in cheek that one needs to go a lot further than this movie goes to really amuse me.

It's a cult hit already. Be there or be square, baby.

While that brand of humor is simplistic, Myers manages to make much of it surprisingly funny.

Austin Powers has plenty of originality to it, but a lot of the jokes either fall flat, or just don't give me the chuckles I expect.

Not only is Mike a funny guy, but he knows more about the 60s and Bond-style movies than I ever care to know in five lifetimes.
