Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)

This movie has plenty of sexual-related jokes but also delivers its share of clean and clever comedy as well. A great example is Dr. Evil's monologue which is a balance of both.

Austin Powers (Mike Myers)

In general, Austin Powers is an above average comedy. In particular, it spoofs the James Bond series in all the right ways.

At the end of the day, I would highly recommend the movie to anyone old enough (it's rated PG-13) who enjoys comedies and/or James Bond.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie a thumbs up.

Scott Evil (Seth Green)

Very well, where should I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring, we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fifteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum. It's breathtaking I suggest you try it.

Fembots (Cheryl Bartel, Cindy Margolis, Donna W. Scott, Barbara Ann Moore, Cynthia LaMontagne)*
*I honestly can't figure out who is who.

Remarks: boulangerie - bakery with bread; buggery - anal intercourse; meat helmet - exactly that, a helmet made of meat; Netflix subtitle says Austrian instead of Zoroastrian; shorn - past participle of shear
2b: "She's like a bicycle. Everyone's had a ride."
2b: Hahahaha. That security man had forever to move out of the way. That's comedy at it's best.
2b: Ha. Dr. Evil wanted to send his son to die.
2b: "Dr. Evil, do you expect them to pay?" "No, Mr. Powers, I expect them to die." (references Goldfinger)
2b: That's some strong floss...

Keep the private parts hidden from the viewers (the second such scene in the movie).

2b: Hehe. It's funny but I'm sure there's no way the cart could have gotten into that position.

2b: Austin does a photo shoot with Vanessa
2b: Austin (as part of the faux 1960s rock band Ming Tea) performs a song
