Shag-happy superspy Austin Powers is back for the third installment of the spy-spoof franchise. Austin travels back to the 70's to find his secret agent dad Nigel (Caine), hook up with new love interest and fellow spy Foxxy Cleopatra (Knowles), and rescue the world. Myers again takes on numerous roles, this time adding new villain Goldmember, a disco-clad Dutchman with a gilded prosthetic and a penchant for world domination. Dr. Evil is in good form but soft newcomer Goldmember comes up short, and Myers is running out of funny ideas. Bond studio MGM raised a stink about the title (too close to "Goldfinger") but finally saw the light and allowed the parody to continue.

Myers pulls off tacky humor (as usual) with 24-karat style in Goldmember, as Austin Powers finds himself fighting crime in the 1970s. Dr. Evil's rap sequence is a highlight of this film, as are the bubbly Beyonce Knowles, and the Dutch villain with a taste for his own crispy gold skin.
