    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    It's a shapeless, derivative-but-funny show with another loony parody plot about super-villain Dr. Evil.

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    Nothing to write home about, though nothing to stay home about either, especially if you're a dyed-in-the-polyester Powers fan.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Mike Myers and Austin Powers may stick to their old Beatle boots, but they've both come a long way, luvvy. For proof, just look at all the A-list celebrities-I-won't-mention happy to crash the party.

What can we say? See the movie first, then decide.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has a great deal of material that would get an R in a drama. Because some words miss being naughty by a vowel or two and the sexual acts are apparent rather than real, they pass muster with the MPAA. Parents should be very cautious about letting children and young teens see the movie without viewing it first themselves.

  • Families can talk about the fact that most of the major characters feel unloved by their fathers. How does that affect them?
