Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
Austin Powers is a 60's spy who is cryonically frozen and released in the 1990's. The world is a very different place for Powers. Unfortunately for Austin, everyone is no longer sex-mad. Although he may be in a different decade, his mission is still the same. He has teamed up with Vanessa Kensington to stop the evil Dr. Evil, who was also frozen in the past. Dr. Evil stole a nuclear weapon and is demanding a payment of (when he realises its the 90's) 100 billion dollars. Can Austin Powers stop this madman? or will he caught up with Evil's henchman, with names like Alotta Fagina and Random Task? Only time will tell!Written by
When Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) suggests blackmailing the Royal Family about the Princess of Wales, in reality, she had been killed in Paris at the time of the film's release in the United Kingdom. See more »
The British soldiers that attack Dr. Evil's base wear red vests that British soldiers would never wear, especially on a combat mission. Also they wear Parachute Regiment badges on their (poorly shaped) berets but the berets are light red rather than the maroon colour used by the Paras. See more »
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my underground lair. I have gathered here before me the world's deadliest assassins, and yet each of you has failed to kill Austin Powers. That makes me angry. And when Dr. Evil gets angry, Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset. And when Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset... people DIE!

The very last thing that appears on screen at the end of the credit is the words: Groovy, Baby! See more »
Also the fight scene between Austin and Random Task is longer in the European version. We see Austin reaching for a knife, a candlestick and a coal rake. And after Vanessa hits Random Task with a champagne bottle, Austin says: "Smashing!". See more »
In this hilarious spoof of 60's spy flicks, a swinging secret agent is thawed out of his cryogenic state in order to combat his old nemesis. The laughs never stop as Myers entertains in two pivotal roles. Hurley is sexy as Austin's partner and love interest. Robert Wagner finds ways to make fun of his "It Takes a Thief" character and is very entertaining in the process. A quickly paced film that generates constant laughs with each viewing. A sequel is soon to be released...Yeah, baby!
