Austin Powers is the International Man of Mystery. He is a secret agent who was cryogenically frozen in the 1960’s. His arch nemesis is a man named Doctor Evil. Austin Powers would be unfrozen if Doctor Evil ever returns from space where he ran away to. When Doctor Evil eventually returns from space in the 1990’s, Austin Powers is unfrozen and he needs to acclimatize to the 90’s because there was a lot of changes since the 1960’s! This movie shows us how Doctor Evil and Austin Powers deal with one another and their on going battles. Tt is a great comedy and keeps you laughing with it’s silliness all the way through. You could even call it a “groovy”film! @rusty_reads of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Must watch--became part of popular culture when it came out. Lots of cute gags

If you know anything about the James Bond 007 films then you can really appreciate just how clever this movie is. You just gotta love the take off on names like Alotta Vagina for Pussy Galore and Random Task for Odd Job, etc. All the slow death scenes in the 007 films are played out perfectly in the Austin Power movies and pointed out as being so ridiculous and unproductive by Dr. Evil's son--why not just shoot him he asks. I think the first one is the best but the second one is pretty good too.

A 1960's hipster secret agent is brought out of cryofreeze to oppose his greatest enemy into the 1990's where his social attitudes are glaringly out of place.

Dr. Evil: The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it.
