Absolutely hilarious

Mike Myers is back for a third installment of his hilarious spy spoof franchise in Austin Powers in Goldmember. He continues to wow and amuse audiences with his multiple roles, playing Austin Powers, Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard, and Goldmember, the new villain in the film. You'll see some familiar faces, Michael York, Seth Green, Robert Wagner, Mindy Serling, and Verne Troyer, but in this third movie—which doesn't necessarily have to be watched in order, but it does help—you'll most likely roar with laughter because of the new faces added to the cast.

Firstly, and let's face it, most importantly, Michael Caine is in the movie. Since Mike Myers had previously revealed part of the inspiration behind his Austin Powers movies was Michael Caine's Harry Palmer character, it's pretty adorable and fitting that Michael Caine was recruited to play Austin Powers's father! And, as a very sweet touch, since Myers's glasses were made to be a replica of Caine's, Caine found his original frames from the 1960s and wore them for the film! Michael Caine is everything you'd expect Austin Powers's dad to be, and pretty much everything out of his mouth is completely hilarious. I'm sure you'll gain some household phrases from this movie, whether it's "If you have an issue, here's a tissue" or "There are two things in this world I hate: people who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch" or his joke about Viagra.

Next up is the hysterical opening to the film: At first you think you're just watching Austin Powers in a car chase sequence, but he gets out of the car and it's actually Tom Cruise! Turns out, Steven Spielberg is making a movie about Austin Powers, starring Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, and John Travolta. Add in cameos by Britney Spears, Quincy Jones, Katie Couric, the Osbourne family, Burt Bacharach, Rob Lowe, Clint Howard, and Nathan Lane—in one of the funniest gags of the movie—and you'll be on your toes for the entire film, wondering who's going to pop up next.

Beyoncé makes her film debut in the movie, and while it's painfully clear she has zero acting ability, if you'd like you can cut her a little slack since she was only twenty years old. Still, her lack of confidence and talent in front of the camera doesn't really detract from the rest of the film. It's extremely funny, and full of phrases you'll find yourself repeating for decades to come.

Joke's over - pity Myers never figured it out

So I enjoyed the first two Austin Powers films. The satire and ridiculousness of them really set the tone.

However, this film takes a major step back, recycling the same jokes from the previous films and going overboard. They bring in Michael Caine as Austin's father, who I feel is completely wasted in the role. He is so much better than this. They also bring in Beyoncé as the token female companion as well as a tonne of A-listers in brief cameos. I tell ya, the pay must have been good.

I rewatched this film again recently. I didn't laugh once. Myers' technique of trying to overplay his already established jokes while hamming it up to 11 really backfires here and it kinda made me cringe, to be perfectly honest. Also Myers takes the role of ANOTHER supporting character bringing his character roster in this series up to four. Goldmember, a Dutch crook with the love of gold, is possibly one of the most unnecessary characters in the film, which is ironic because the film is named after him. It just gives Myers an excuse to have a go at a pathetic Dutch accent.

There was really no point for this film to be made, apart from Myers to expand his ego. The humour really wears thin and you kinda wish the film would end sooner, which is never a good sign. They did the parody well in the first two films but this film is a clear indication that they should have just left it at two.

Just Too Darn Funny To Get Old

After watching this third installment of the Austin Powers film series, one can't help but wonder how director Jay Roach can get by with using the same type of humor for three go-'rounds. Well, the answer is simple: The characters are just too darn funny to get old!

For a basic plot summary, "Goldmember" sees Austin Powers (Mike Myers) once again battling Dr. Evil (Myers), this time with 1970s "supervillain" Goldmember (Myers), a spoof of the classic James Bond villain Goldfinger, thrown in for good measure.

Once again, the same basic jokes and tone of humor is used in this effort, but it just never seems to get old in the least. Plus, more of an actual storyline (dealing with "daddy issues") is present in this one than in its two predecessors. New characters Nigel Powers (Michael Caine) & Foxy Cleopatra (Beyonce) also add a bit of spice to the cast.

Overall, this film simply keeps the Austin Powers comedy ball rolling. It may have slipped a tiny bit from "The Spy Who Shagged Me", but nowhere near enough to drop it a star ranking.
