I'm not a Mike Myers fan, and I avoided this film--and its sequels--like the plague when they were on the big screen. But I now know the error of my ways: AUSTIN POWERS is one of the freshest bits of purely entertaining, mindless fluff to come along in quite a while, the perfect antedote to an overcast and bad-mood sort of day.
The story is an amalgamation of the more excessive plot ideas of such films as DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER and OUR MAN FLINT. Fashion photographer by day and swinging spy by night, Austin Powers is the toast of psychedelic London--and more than a match for Dr. Evil. But when Dr. Evil has himself frozen, Powers does the same, and the two defrost some thirty years later and resume their battle in the much more up-tight 1990s. The most obvious target of the spoof is the James Bond films, but fans of 1960s film will have a field day spotting the film's take offs on such characters as Matt Helm, Derek Flint, Emma Peel, celebrities like The Beatles and Andy Warhol, and such diverse films as THE TENTH VICTIM and the camp classic DR. GOLDFOOT AND THE GIRL BOMB. And dare we mention the sixties' own classic swinging spy spoof, the infamous CASINO ROYALE?
Myers is greatly amusing in the double role of Austin Powers and Dr. Evil, both of whom have considerable difficulty adjusting to everything from safe sex to inflation, and Elizabeth Hurley is quite good in the Diana Rigg-ish role of sidekick Vanessa Kensington. But the real fun here is in the details--and the details include every one from Michael York to Robert Wagner to Burt Bacharach to Carrie Fisher, "Fembots" with killer pasties, and Italian sexpot Fabiana Udenio as a character with the most devastating name since Honor Blackman hit the screen in GOLDFINGER.

Most dvds now you can buy real cheap. Comedy dvds I can buy at hollywood video for about 10 bucks. The dvd says you save alot, but there is a problem, you probably have half these movies. Austin Powers, everyone has it.
Seriously though, lets break it down. I have seen basically all these movies. I own most of them. The only person who would spend 300 bucks on this pack is a true comedy fan. If you are a true comedy fan, then you probably have over half these movies. Noone decides one day, "I think I am going to guy buy 30 comedy dvd's for 300 dollars even though I dislike comedies." On the other hand, "I think I am going to buy 30 comedy dvds, I own most of them, but hey, 2 dvds are better then one." Wrong, the pack proves to be rather useless for anyone.
The dvd's are somewhat funny. Most of them have lost their funniness though, so I woulnd't reccomend this to anyone.

You can find most of these DVDs in one fell swoop on e-bay already if you use the search term "DVD lot" and you will end up paying about half the total cost. These are all Warner Bros snapcase DVDs, by the way. Yep, they come in those cases that drive everyone insane because they are cheap beyond a reasonable doubt. It wouldn't surprise me if half these titles are updated by Warner with new 2-disc special editions (in awesome packaging) in the next 2 years or so. Shop around, folks. These are the same movies you see countless times at your local pawn shop for half the cost here. There's nothing special here to be had, and chances are, you'll be paying for at least one title you don't want.

This is a good collection of comedy films, primarily from the 90's:

Blazing Saddles (1974),
Being There (1979),
Caddyshack (1980),
Little Shop of Horrors (1986),
Joe Versus the Volcano (1990),
Dave (1993),
Grumpy Old Men (1993),
Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994),
Dumb & Dumber (1994),
The Mask (1994),
Maverick (1994),
Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995),
The American President (1995),
Grumpier Old Men (1995),
Michael (1996),
Waiting for Guffman (1996),
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997),
Wag the Dog (1997),
Practical Magic (1998),
Rush Hour (1998),
The Wedding Singer (1998),
You've Got Mail (1998),
Analyze This (1999),
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999),
Best in Show (2000),
Miss Congeniality (2000),
The Whole Nine Yards (2000),
Ocean's Eleven (2001),
Rush Hour 2 (2001),
Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)

There are a couple of classics in there like "Being There" and "Blazing Saddles", but primarily these are just above average crowd-pleasing comedies that just about anybody will enjoy and find funny. The problem is that the newest movie in the bunch is now five years old, with most of them averaging around eleven years of age. Thus even at this greatly reduced price, this collection is still no bargain versus finding them in the sale bin, and all of them are pretty easy to find in that way. I'm giving the collection itself four stars, and the value of the collection two stars - thus my rating of three stars.

I have to laugh my head off when I read negative reviews from people who say the movie is stupid. Gee, you think?. It is supposed to be. Some people, like the one star review below, were completely lost on the joke. Over their heads. So many don't understand comedy like that. Mike Meyers created one of the funniest and most memorable comedic characters of the last decade with this hilarious and silly and over the top comedy spoofing the James Bond series. Auatin Powers is a British spy with horrible teeth and a raging libido. Austin's main arch nemesis is Dr. Evil(also played by Meyers), who, with his bald head and cat and manner of speech is an obvious spoof of recurring 007 villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Evil freezes himself and programs the cryogenic chamber to unthaw him in the late 1990's. Austin decides he will do the same thing so he can be there to stop Dr. Evil with his dastardly scheme for global domination. Did I mention that Austin was also a photographer by day?. The guy just never stops. There are rumors that Meyers also fashioned the Dr. Evil character after his old boss, "SNL" maestro Lorne Michaels. Seth Green(who seems to pop up all the time)is hilarious as Scott Evil, Dr. Evil's angst ridden teen son. There scenes together are priceless. Equally as good is Mindy Sterling as Evil's assistant. Robert Wagner(does this guy age?)plays Number 2, another henchman. "SNL"'s Will Ferrell pops up as well. The 'girl' is none other than the lovely and beautiful Elizabeth Hurley, as Vanessa Kensington. A most perfect choice in the casting department if you know what I mean and I think you do. This movie is written, designed, filmed, and acted with the intention of just having a good time. This isn't comedy that'll make you think days afterwards. This is pure popcorn cotton candy people.Read more ›
