Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
What could possibly be better than a smashing, '60s-skewed sound track, baby? Not much, according to the masterminds behind the globe-trotting, babe-shagging spy Austin Powers. He has hit screens again this summer, fully equipped with a generation-spanning collection of psychedelic songs from Madonna, REM, Lenny Kravitz, and Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello. There's even a previously unreleased BBC version of the Who's "My Generation" -- groovy! REM manages to sound unlike itself on a cover of Tommy James's "Draggin' the Line," Melanie G brands Cameo's "Word Up" with an undeniable Spice stamp (in tandem with Timbaland, who produced the track), and Lenny Kravitz takes on "American Woman." With Green Day, the Flaming Lips, and Scott Weiland rounding out the package -- not to mention Dr. Evil's hilarious cover of Will Smith's cover of "Just the Two of Us" -- THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME is a trip you won't mind taking.
