This review is from: Austin Powers Shagadelic Box [DVD] (DVD)
Mike Myers is a comic genius with this trilogy of films that catapults sexy starlets - Liz Hurley (grrrr), Heather Graham (grrrrr) and Beyonce (grrrrr) - against Austin's evil nemesis, aptly named Dr Evil and played by Myers together with a cast of henchmen including Frau Farbissina, Scott evil, Mini-me (a one-eighth clone of Dr Evil), Fat Bastard (also Myers) and the wonderful 'No.2', played by Rob Lowe and robert Wagner (young/older).
The plots are fantastical but no worse than a lot of bond films, the costumes superb, the music authentic(especially the specially put together band Ming Tea which feature Myers on lead and The Bangles' Suzannah Hoffs) and Austin's teeth a great ad for braces.
Michael York is wonderfully camp as Basil Exposition, whose character runs across all three films.
If you don't know this cast of characters you should get to know them. Each film is very funny. I nearly forgot Goldmember, whose wedding tackle was involved in an unfortunate smelting accident and is now solid gold.
If the opening sequence of each film DOESN'T make you laugh then you are probably dead and therefore can't read this.
Just behave and watch this DVD!!!
