6800th Review!!! Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)

“There are only two things I can’t stand in this world: People who are intolerant of other people’s cultures, and the Dutch. ” – Nigel Powers

Number of Times Seen – Twice (1 Jun 2003 and 16 Aug 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Austin Powers is back and he now has a new enemy who joins forces with DR. Evil in order to try and defeat the British super spy.

My Take on it – This is (thankfully) the final film in this series and they should have stopped long beforehand.

This movie is uqite tiresome to experinece because it doesn;t feel original at all due to the way that it constantly rehashes things from the previous two films.

The other two films are moreentertaining with their characters and situations and this one os juts too much.

Mike Myers once again returns in the dual lead roles and takes on even more characters in this chapter.

He once again plays Fat Bastard and is also the additional villain Goldmember.

It was nice to see Michael Caine in this film even if he isn’t given enough to do.

The story of this chapter is even sillier than its predecessors and they tae things into some very strange directions.

Some of these things actually take away from the rest of the series because of the directions it takes some of these characters.

The film’s jokes and innuendos go much too far and they cross so many lines over and over.

This helps make this movie a really big farce especially given the way that things are presented here.

The biggest shame about this film and the series as a whole is that they had so much potential to make a great group of films and chose t not realize the full potential of it all.

Bottom Line – Tiresome third film of the series which just isn’t nearly as fun as either of its predecessors. Myers once again plays multiple roles and adds another one here as the villain Goldmember. Nice to see Caine in this film as Myers’ father.  The story itself goes into some very strange areas which actually hurts the entire series on a whole due to the way that they change things around.  The jokes and innuendos in this film cross the line so many times and that makes things an even bigger farce by the way that it’s all presented here.  This is quite a shame because this whole series had so much more potential than in realized here.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Seth Green claims that the ending sequence showing Scott Evil dancing around his father’s lair was unscripted. While fooling around between takes, his hi-jinks were caught on film, and director Jay Roach decided to include it in the movie. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
