Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
|New Line; rental pricing|
|Director: ||Jay Roach|
|Cast: ||Mike Myers, Elizabeth Hurley, Carrie Fisher and Tom Arnold|
Don't just stay at home and shag! Rent this swinging video, baby! Myers is hilarious as the eponymous James Bond type, cryogenically frozen in the 1960s and defrosted in the '90s to ward off the cue-ball-headed Dr. Evil (also played by Myers). Needless to say, Powers is shocked to discover the world no longer favors “free love” and polyester leisure suits. Myers's bad teeth and Carnaby Street wardrobe are worth the rental price alone, but it's his near reverential satire that pushes this comedy over the top.
