Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)
Austin Powers (Mike Myers) finally has the jump on Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) and gets him locked up in jail with Mini Me (Venre Troyer), but not before Dr. Evil contacts his business partner, Goldmember (Mike Myers) who loves to turn men’s genitalia solid gold. Austin, however, also has an ally in the 1970s named Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyonce Knowles) and she is hot on the trail of Goldmember. Both of them end up traveling to present day where it seems that Austin’s father, Nigel (Michael Caine), holds the trump card to the whole screwed up story.
This one making my personal top 100 list, Austin Powers in Goldmember is the biggest cast yet and probably the funniest. It’s hard to say that something is better and funnier to something you already think is great and a blast, but Mike Myers turned up the dial with the cameos and characters he portrays and made this one the best. Beyonce plays a better sidekick I think because she is more classy than sexy and holds her own as an actress. As you can tell from the tags at the bottom of the page, there are cameos from Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, John Travolta, Josh Zuckerman, Steven Spielberg, Nathan Lane, Britney Spears, Clint Howard, Ozzy Osbourne and Katie Couric. Hopefully by the time you get the this one, you have seen the first 2 films, so buckle up and get ready. I only wish they would have gotten to #4 with Scott in the driver seat. Other co-stars include Fred Savage, Mindy Sterling, Michael York, and Robert Wagner.
10/10 Stars – The best of the whole series that already had 2 great films.
