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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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.

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.

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.

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.

If this were the Simpsons, I would have been rolling on the floor; it's not a parody, it's a fish out of water comedy with a splash of homage. And that's why it doesn't work.
