The third installment of the James Bond spoof series- Austen Powers in Goldmember can easily compete with the domination and success of its two predecessors. A seven-week total of $207 million made Goldmember the highest-grossing film of the Austin Powers trilogy. A truly amazing accomplishment for Mike Myers' creation. Myers returns as the International man of mystery-Austin Powers, Dr. Evil as well as a host of new characters such as Goldmember. Myers' comedic performance pulls off all the stops to ensure that Goldmember would be a huge box office success. The introduction of inexperienced Pop-diva Beyonce Knowles was a suprise to some, as is her outstanding role as Foxxy Cleopatra. Austin Powers in Goldmember could have either been a huge success or a huge failure, however with charismatic performances from the leading duo [Myers and Knowles] as well as from British-acting legend Michael Caine lending his experienced services, and a host of cameo appearances from Briteny Spears to Tom Cruise, make the third installment of Austin Powers hugely entertaining and a comical masterpiece.
