Review Coming Soon. This Quick Popcorn Review was taken from the Top Ten Will Ferrell Movies List:
I remember the first time that I saw Austin Powers. It was a nice Spring Saturday afternoon in Minnesota and my friend Ryan Giersdorf invited me over to his house to watch a movie. I asked what movie and what is it about. He said he wasn’t really sure but it’s called Austin Powers and that it was a spy movie, kind of like James Bond. I was a little disappointed; I was in the mood for a comedy. But I went over anyways. Needless to say my friends assessment and both of our expectations were blown within only minutes into the opening 70’s dance number with Mike Meyers as a yellow teethed, leisure suit wearing dancing spy. By the time I learned who #2 works for I was already dying of laughing from one of my favorite comedies of all time. Mike Meyers stretched out the joke as usual with Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and Austin Powers: Goldmember but even those stale jokes along with some new ones did it for me enough to be excited for the rumored Austin Powers 4: (?) that is hopefully in development. For those of you that are saying, wait, Will Ferrell wasn’t in Austin Powers, I remind you in the clip below about one of Dr. Evils henchmen who was sent to the dungeon, but not killed, only very badly burnt.
