An Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery review? I also like to live dangerously


By the time you read this, I will have seen all three films in this series.


Some film (and TV show) makers believe that if you drag a joke out long enough, it will loop around from funny to annoying, then back to funny again. This movie is guilty of that a few times.

Otherwise, it was funnier and…tamer?…than I was expecting.


So many unexpected cameos in this. I have a feeling I’m going to get tired of Austin Powers and Dr. Evil by the time I sit through three of these in a row, but for now, they’re funny enough.


They did a great job of replicating the look of movies and TV shows from the 60’s.

Product Placement

Are Big Boy restaurants even still around? Didn’t they get bought out by Shoney’s? Maybe it’s a regional thing and I live in the wrong region or something. I’m getting sidetracked here. There’s plenty of other stuff here worth taking a point off for.


Why yes, this was the first time I’ve seen this. Thanks for asking! I have a feeling it will be the most rewatchable of the trilogy.

  1. This was a huge surprise when I saw it at the theaters along with the very few in its initial run. Love how it became a hit via home video.

  2. Can I just say, I don’t like these movies. I really don’t. However, I’ve found them to be a lot more fun when watched with a group of people.

  3. This is an example of a trilogy that gets very tired and old, relying on the same repetitive joke, very quickly. The first one is very good though.
