Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery presented by Mike Check
Presented by Mike Check
Mike Check is the only intensive Mike Myers themed podcast on the web, baby! Hosted by comedians Cameron James & Alexei Toliopoulos of The Blank Slate Movie Podcast. Each episode breaks down Mike’s filmography in a very shagadelic way.
YEAH BABY! It’s 1967 and British spy Austin Powers (Mike Myers) faces his nemesis Dr. Evil (also Mike Myers) in a swinging London club. When Dr Evil escapes in a rocketship and cryogenically freezes himself, the selfless Powers offers to do the same. Fast forward thirty years and Dr. Evil is back, accompanied by his misanthropic Xennial son, Scott Evil (Seth Green) – so too is Austin Powers, still feeling shagadelic and ready for business, baby! Again, he takes on the mission of bringing about the end of the Evil empire, this time with his old sidekick’s daughter (Elizabeth Hurley) by his side. Many below the belt jokes ensue.
Why should you see this film?
Hehehehe. So silly. So good. SO HORNY BABY! Right up there with Wayne’s World, Austin Powers remains one of SNL alumni Mike Myers’ greatest creations. The film that started it all (and still the best), it blends 60s psych pop pastiche with endless parodies and references of the many, many Bond films. Celebrate it’s twentieth anniversary with us, groovy babies.
