Overview

AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY is the first in the comic series starring this bodacious 1960s spy played by the hilarious Mike Myers. Decked out in the gaudiest mod attire--ruffled shirts, tight-fitting candy-colored suits, horn-rimmed glasses, and prosthetic teeth--Austin Powers is anything but subtle. His near-constant exclamations of "Groovy, Baby," accompanied an uncandid flash of his flirtatious smile, only add to his wonderfully exaggerated hipster persona. Plotwise, Austin Powers and his enemy Dr. Evil (also played by Myers) awake from 30 years of frozen, cryogenic sleep to find themselves in the year 1997. A conniving Dr. Evil plots a reign of terror and mass destruction, but finds that his ideas and methods are a bit out of date. Our hero encounters a similar dilemma, realizing that he is definitely behind the times. A series of well-meaning though bumbling efforts to thwart the insidious Dr. Evil keep Austin Powers and his devastatingly beautiful partner Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) hard at work as they travel from London to Las Vegas. With this tongue-in-cheek send-up of James Bond spy films and 1960s cliches, director Jay Roach compliments Myers' over-the-top performance with a lighthearted soundtrack, fun photography, and amusingly retro sets.

    AUSTIN POWERS includes a series of cameos: Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri (both of tv's Saturday Night Live), Carrie Fisher (who played Princess Leia in STAR WARS), Susanna Hoffs (who was in the band The Bangles, and is married to director Roach), and Christian Slater and Matthew Sweet (who play security guards).

    The costumes for the fashion shoot sequence actually mimic the costumes worn for a shoot in Michelangelo Antonioni's 1966 BLOW-UP.

    Austin Powers's phone uses the same ring as the phone in OUR MAN FLINT, the 1966 spy film starring James Coburn.
    "It's Doctor Evil actually. I didn't spend four years at Evil Medical School to be called Mister Evil thank you very much."

    "Austin Powers, Danger is my middle name."

    "It's not my bag baby!"
