Austin Powers in Goldmember
Mike Myers' phenomenally successful spy spoof gains a few more characters, a slew of celebrity cameos, and even more free-associative laughs in this third installment of the popular franchise. Austin Powers in Goldmember continues the exploits of the swinging-'60s leftover, who, as the film opens, is busy critiquing a big-budget Hollywood production of his life story, replete with a 20-million-dollar star in the lead role and a slew of John Woo-style action scenes.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The third installment in the series of super-spy spoofs, it's handcuffed by the ever-increasing load of baggage it carries."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"One-ups the Austin Powers sequel that came before it."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"What can we say? See the movie first, then decide."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...things went from mediocre to worse in this entry."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Myers and Roach are running dangerously close to empty as far as new and genuinely funny ideas, and they would be best off quitting before they fall any farther behind."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"I think this is the funniest of the three movies and I liked the first two."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The level of inventiveness remains high."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"What more could one want from a third Austin Powers movie that you didn't get from two? With only so much Bond baiting to be done, Mike Myers trains his soft satire on himself for something that feels somewhat self-loathing, but still riotously funny."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Thank God for Fat Bastard."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"The first five minutes of this film rate as perhaps the best film opening ever... they're worth the price of admission alone, and so we need say no more."
‑ David Foucher, EDGE Boston
"It's an ode to indecent joy."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"The Powers team has fashioned a comedy with more laughs than many, no question. But this time there's some mold on the gold."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"I expected laughs and instead got a sad spectacle of recycled jokes and lame running gags."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Most of it is rehash, and smug rehash at that."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Perhaps not as original as the first two movies, Goldmember is still fun and funny."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
