AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER, the third movie in the Austin Powers series, stars Mike Myers in director Jay Roach's James Bond, Sci-Fi, 1970s, funkadelic formula--a hyper-stylized backdrop to what is ultimately Myers' one-man show. GOLDMEMBER is a family affair. Austin has a few unresolved issues with his dear old dad, Nigel Powers (the dead ringer Michael Caine, who is also a good sport), and he hopes to work out some Freudian tension when he's not saving the world from the forces of evil. Myers flexes his actor muscles and portrays a more thoughtful, and--is it even possible--a slightly less geeky Austin in this film. Likewise, even the bad guys show some new personality: Dr. Evil reveals a penchant for talking like a hip-hop, wise-ass homeboy, and the new villain Goldmember (the latest in Myers' repertoire) is an enigmatic amputee with a heart of gold who speaks with a Dutch accent and eats his own peeling skin. If that's not disgusting enough, Fat Bastard, the greasy behemoth from the THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME, appears again in GOLDMEMBER, delving into new and nasty scatological territory. But the joke's on us, because GOLDMEMBER's toilet humor is so extreme that it dissolves into a harmless fit of giggles, keeping viewers laughing from start to finish.
"...Down-and-out funny....One of the crucial delights of GOLDMEMBER is Mr. Myers's obvious continued pleasure in inhabiting his creation....After three editions, it's still flying high..." -- Stephen Holden , (New York Times)
"...Knowles has a pleasant screen presence..." -- Kenneth Turan , (Los Angeles Times)
"...The POWERS team has fashioned a comedy with more laughs than many..." -- Mike Clark , (USA Today)
"...The movie is remarkably spry and inspired....Mike Myers and Austin Powers may stick to their old Beatle boots, but they've both come a long way, luvvy..." -- Lisa Schwarzbaum , (Entertainment Weekly)
"...Inventive and offbeat....[With] wall-to-wall comedy of a sort found only in the mind of Mike Myers. And the supporting cast is, indeed, wonderful..." -- Wade Major , (Box Office)
"...The Powers films work because of a sustained barrage of gags....The laugh-per-minute ratio is higher here than in any other currently running series of comedy star vehicles..." -- Kim Newman , (Sight and Sound)
