Austin Powers is back, in "Austin Powers In Goldmember." This time, Mike Myers is playing four characters, which include Austin (of course), Dr. Evil, Fat B*s&t^a%d, and the aptly named…Goldmember. Seth Green returns as Evil's son, as well as Robert Wagner playing Number 2, Mindy Sterling as Frau Farbissana, and Verne J. Troyer as Mini-Me, a clone 1/8 the size of Dr. Evil.

In this supposed last entry into the Austin Powers franchise, Austin (Myers) must use the help of Dr. Evil (Myers) to find an infamous villain from the seventies, named Goldmember (Myers) , an eccentric Dutchman who loves gold, and also has a disgusting habit of eating his own peeling skin, to rescue his father (Michael Caine). After traveling back in time to the seventies, and going to Goldmember's club, Austin accidentally meets up with an old flare, Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyonce Knowles of Destinys Child), who is undercover. The two team up, and rescue Austin's father from Goldmember, only to learn Doctor Evil's new plan. After traveling back to 2002 with Foxxy and his father, Austin attempts to foil Goldmember and Dr. Evil's new plan before it's too late, and they'll also find out the truth between Dr. Evil and Austin!

With more cameos in the first 5 minutes than any movie I've ever seen before (save "It's A Mad, Mad Mad Mad World), and hilarious jokes, "Austin Powers in Goldmember" lives up to the other two films. With excellent interaction and chemistry between characters, and a great ending to the trilogy, this is not a let down to the fans. There were only a few things about this film that turned disgusting. One is with Fat ^&^$%^ and a sumo `diaper' as he calls them, and another especially with Mini-Me and Austin behind a curtain. Other than this, "Austin Powers in Goldmember" is good, and is filled with laughs from beginning to end. One of many absolute hilarious scenes occurs with a remake of the song "It's a Hard Knock Life" from the broad way play, Annie, but in this remake Dr. Evil and Mini-me rap it, and it's hilarious!

See this movie for laughs, plain and simple. Powers fans won't be let down. With some good laughs, an ending to end all endings, and great actors, "Austin Powers In Goldmember" is overall good. Not great, but good. It pleased me enough to recommend it to you. Cameos. Humor. Good movie. What more could you ask for, baby?

Entertaining and well crafted.  May not be worth the price of a theater ticket, but a solid rental. Entertaining and well crafted.  May not be worth the price of a theater ticket, but a solid rental.
