It's been three years since Austin Powers' (Mike Myers) last encounter with his deadly archenemy, Dr. Evil. But after Dr. Evil and his accomplice Mini-Me (Verne Troyer) escape from a maximum-security prison, Austin, that international man of mystery, swings into action for another comedy caper. Teaming up with the mysterious Goldmember, Dr. Evil (also played by Myers) hatches a time-traveling scheme to take over the world, one that involves the kidnapping of Nigel Powers (Academy Award and Golden Globewinner Michael Caine), Austin's beloved father and Englands most renowned spy. Chasing the villains through time, Austin lands in 1975 and joins forces with his old flame, streetwise and stylish detective Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyonce Knowles). Together Austin and Foxxy must find a way to save Nigel, stop Dr. Evil and Goldmember from their mischievous mayhem--and survive the dawn of disco.
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: While the narrative structure is messy and doesn't make much sense, the third installment of the Austin Powers franchise contains enough inspired bits to entertain.
