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.
He's found his mojo, baby, and now Austin Powers is back again in this shagadelic comedy-adventure. The "sshhh!" hits the fan when Dr. Evil and Mini-Me escape from prison. Joining forces with the superfreaky Goldmember, they kidnap Austin's father, master spy Nigel Powers, in a dastardly time-travel scheme to take over the world. Before you can say "Shake Your Booty", Austin cruises to 1975 and teams up with sexy Foxxy Cleopatra to stop Dr. Evil and Goldmember from their mischievous mayhem.Written by

When Austin and his father are in the Mini with Foxxy she says shut up and turn around. They see they are about to get hit by a bus and scream and face each other but when they turn around they are still the same distance away from the bus yet they kept the same speed at all times. See more »
During the music montage, "What The World Needs Now", there is a clip of Robert Wagner dressed like a women and Rob Lowe in a Number Two uniform. This is taken from a deleted scene. See more »
In Roboto's office, the subtitles read "Please eat some shit" when blocked by a white tea kettle on his desk. Apon moving it, the full subtitle reads "Please eat some shitake mushrooms." In the TV version, it's changed to "Please eat some dung" and when fully uncovered reads "Please eat some Dungeness crab." See more »
The weakest of the series, but Myers still has his mojo
After thoroughly enjoying the first two Austin Powers movies, they were daft but enormous fun, I watched this third instalment. I was disappointed admittedly, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The plot takes the whole meaning of daftness to a whole level, so some of it verges on ridiculous, and while Mike Myers is brilliant as Austin and Dr Evil, he overdoes it as the Dutch villain Goldmember and the cameos are very hit and miss. That said, the sets and costumes are still wonderful, the soundtrack is groovy and the script is comedy gold with the cool catchphrases, bad-taste buffoonery and surreal slapstick. In terms of supporting performances Beyonce Knowles is a knockout as sexy and sassy Foxxy Cleopatra and Michael Caine is a dentally-challenged delight as Austin's dad. Seth Green is also fun as Scott Evil. Overall, an inferior sequel, but it was still a lot of fun, with Myers still having his mojo. 7/10 Bethany Cox
