Overview

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery features both widescreen and pan-and-scan versions of the film; however, the original theatrical aspect ration of 2.35:1 has been changed by director Jay Roach to a 2:1 aspect ratio, perhaps to better accommodate its widescreen enhancement. The commentary track allows Roach and Mike Myers to tell what is improvised and what is scripted in the film, specifically to point out the different inspirations and homages, and joke around some as well. The deleted scene menu features two original endings and five scenes that were either cut for time or because they were expendable. One of the original endings is particularly hilarious and at least two of the deleted scenes ("The Henchman's Wife" and "Fendi Briefcase") could have been left in the film. The "Spy Genre Retrospective" is disappointing, just a series of pages to read about the movies that inspired the film instead of a featurette. Meanwhile, the animated "Music to Shag To" sequence, a celebrity cameo menu, and the "Swedish-Made Penis Enlarger Pump" features aren't exactly substantial but do add to the zany feel of the DVD. The theatrical trailer is also included. Austin Powers can't compete with current special editions, but it is nonetheless a fun disc for an enjoyable film.

Of course, the entire world has probably seen this movie by now, right? Well...everyone except me. I just now saw it and I have to say...why does everyone love it so much?

I did not find it funny. I laughed once, if I remember correctly with the "No, but that's where you are. You're there!" part. That was it. I know the movie is supposed to be kind of cheesy but the script it beyond cheesy. It's just stupid. The humor? You might find it funny if you're five. It relies much too heavily on sexual jokes and innuendos that it's just idiotic. That's about 95% of the "humor" in it.
The acting...well, I suppose they played the characters well. How they were supposed to anyways, not saying the characters themselves were good. They were really quite annoying.

I personally found this to be one to just be flat out stupid. It was boring and slow too. I found myself constantly looking at the clock, wondering how much longer it was and debating on whether or not I should keep going, just hoping it may get better. It didn't.

I like all three of the movies in the Austen Powers series and this one is the first movie and is absolutely hilarious and a very fun movie to watch!

Austin Powers has everything--sexy spies, goofy gags, clever disquises, a fiendish supervillain, and Mike Meyers, who has a special sticky gooey place in my heart. I know everyone in the world has seen it three times at least at this point and loves it just as much as I do, so I'm not sure why I'm writing this. But yeah, Austin Powers! Great movie!
