Austin Powers in Goldmember
Austin Powers In Goldmember ★★½ 2002 (PG-13)
Shag-happy superspy Austin Powers is back for the third installment of the spy-spoof franchise. Austin travels back to the 70's to find his secret agent dad Nigel (Caine), hook up with new love interest and fellow spy Foxxy Cleopatra (Knowles), and rescue the world. Myers again takes on numerous roles, this time adding new villain Goldmember, a discoclad Dutchman with a gilded prosthetic and a penchant for world domination. Dr. Evil is in good form but soft newcomer Gold-member comes up short, and Myers is running out of funny ideas. Bond studio MGM raised a stink about the title (too close to “Goldfinger”) but finally saw the light and allowed the parody to continue. 94m/C VHS, DVD .
