Austin Powers in Goldmember

Austin Powers in Goldmember

Despite symptoms of sequelitis, Austin Powers in Goldmember is must-see lunacy for devoted fans of the shagadelic franchise. Unfortunately, the law of diminishing returns is in full effect: for every big-name cameo and raunchy double-entendre, there's an equal share of redundant shtick, juvenile scatology, and pop-cultural spoofery. All is forgiven when the hilarity level is consistently high, and Mike Myers--returning here as randy Brit spy Austin, his nemesis Dr. Evil, the bloated Scottish henchman Fat Bastard, and new Dutch disco-villain Goldmember--thrives by favoring comedic chaos over coherent plotting. Once they've tossed Austin into the disco fever of 1975 (where he's sent to rescue his father, gamely played by Michael Caine), Myers and director Jay Roach seem vaguely adrift with old and new characters, including Verne Troyer's Mini-Me and pop star Beyoncé Knowles as Pam Grier-ish blaxpo-babe Foxxy Cleopatra. A bit tired, perhaps, but Powers hasn't lost his mojo. --Jeff Shannon

Fazha, his dad. Daddy's fazha.

Dr. Evil:
Oh, his dad. Oh! His father.

Yes, I have a Dutch accent. Isn't that weird?

Dr. Evil:
Father, Father. Ah, Nigel Powers.

Hello, hello. (slaps Frau on her rear) Ha-ha-ha.

Dr. Evil:
Bring him to me.

Easy-peasy, lemon squeezy. Oh, put the guns down. Is-is this the first day on the job or something? Look, this is how it goes, you attack me, one at a time, and I knock you out with a single punch. Okay? Go.

(The two guards listen, and Nigel does just that)

Dr. Evil:
Oh, he's good.

(to third guard) Do you know who I am? Have you any idea how many anonymous henchmen I've killed over the years? And look at you, you haven't even got a name tag. You got no chance. Why don't you just fall down? Go on, son.

(The guard complies.)

All right, Dr. Evil, give yourself up while you still got a chance. (handgun chambers behind Nigel) Okay, okay, you got me.

Dr. Evil:
Nigel Powers, I'd like you to meet Mini-me.

Oh, blimey! (looks down at Mini-me) I thought I smelled cabbage.

Dr. Evil:
Take him away!

Uh-uh, Dr. Evil, can I paint his yoo-hoo gold? It's kind of my thing, ya know?

(Dr. Evil pilots his chair over to Goldmember, and swivels it to look at Goldmember.)

Dr. Evil:
How 'bout no, you crazy Dutch bastard!?
