Offical Review - Two thumbs up great family fun.

Although no blantant SW ripoffs this time around.

I thought it didn't open until Friday? We have to wait here where I live, one of the benefits of living in Cali! How does it rate compared to the first two?

You are right, it doesn't open 'til Friday.

A group of my friends and I were on your way to see K19 when a lady handed me a piece of paper good for an advanced screening of Goldmember.

I'm just glad that they didn't fall back on all of the same jokes. Although I thought that the movie took a while to get going.

K-19...

Isn't that the movie in which Captain Han Solo orders Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn to fix the Death Star II core reactor that they mistakenly destroyed, while trapped beneath the icy surface of planet Hoth? :p

The funny thing about Austin Powers movies, is that lots of people don't realize that most everything in them (or atleast the first one) can be found in a James Bond movie. Most everyone I know that likes them seems to be ignorant of this. It's odd...

Personally, I don't like them. I prefer my comedy black.

okay been thinking about this for a while and this seems as good a place as any to bring it up. The Austin Powers Pepsi twist commercial with Spears: around when he says she's a man baby they do a shot of him standing infront of some wall decorations namely two horns. The way he's standing makes him look like a devil. I wonder if it was intentional?

Hmm, I always throught the James Bond spoofing was obvious. Heck, the titles "The Spy Who Shagged Me" and "Goldmember are blatant rips on "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Goldfinger".

But then again, I've always LOVED James Bond so I guess I'm one of the few who "caught" the joke.

Yeah, I thought it was a bit obvious too that it was taken from Bond (though I'm not too into Bond... nor Austin Powers... but they're better than some shows... whatever you people do, do not rent Beowulf with Chrstopher Lambert in it, trust me on this...)

Heck, UA (I think it was United Artists) tried to sue them and make them change the title Golmember to something else. They felt it was too close to the Bond movie title Goldfinger.

Hmmm, maybe I'll go see it since you to found it to be pretty funny.

In one of the trailers the movie is called "The Next Installment of Austin Powers," but when they agreed to show the Die Another Day trailer in front of Goldmember they let them keep the title.

Actually I didn't like Goldmember. You can assemble the 3rd movie from all the jokes in the first two. Save your money and rent it, or wait till it's on TV. I was disapointed. It did have it's moments, but they were few and far between. And all the hidiously blatant advertising got very tiring very quickly.

What was Goldmember's line at the roller disco? Something like "I'm Dutch! Isn't that weird?"
