Will everyone like it? Certainly not. This film will only appeal to those swingers that are "in on the joke" and who could appreciate such low-brow entertainment tactics as jokes featuring penis-enlargement pumps and a man peeing for close to a minute...on-screen. All in all, I was taken in by this film's utter originality, unique dialogue, smashing characters, self-deprecating attitude and Mike Myers' superb performances as both Austin Powers and Dr. Evil. But most of all, I was taken in by this film's infectious enthusiasm, which should lasso in most open-minded lovers of Myers' earlier forays into the World of Wayne. The rest of you could either take it or shag it, baby! Now does that make you horny??
My favorite line came by the way of Austin Powers himself: "Do you like to wash up a bit before? Personally, before I'm on the job I like to give me undercarriage a bit of a "How's your father."
