    Am I insane that I could care less about yet another Austin Powers movie? The movies are mediocre at best, but do have a funny moment or two. I used to like Mike Myers when he was on SNL, but I think he recycles way too much material (I'm not talking just "Wayne's World) from SNL for his movies. Just various bits, gags, dialog, and even characters are derived from skits he's already done on SNL! Where else can you go with the character of "Austin Powers"? How many times can he battle the same "frickin'" villian each movie? Am I missing something here? Should I look forward to Michael Caine playing his father? Will cameos by Tom Cruise, Steven Spielberg, Titney Spears, and others make up for the lack-luster plot? Can somebody from "Destiny's Child" even act? Is this movie even worth a thread here on the Links?

    Looks like lawsuits from the James Bond people could delay this one. They may have to reshoot scenes...

    Actually, that's already been settled. Austin Powers will show trailers for the upcoming 007 movie. MGM decided that this parody will be great exposure for the James Bond flicks after all. (Sounds more like some sort of payoff to me!)

    They agreed to show previews of the next Bond before the movie to help settle the lawsuit.

    I thought the other two were funny, but I'll wait until it's released on video to see the new one.

    I'm looking forward to it too! In fact, i bet it's got a better storyline then the last star wars. Don't get me wrong, i love the star wars flicks, just disappointed with the last 2.

    I thought AP1 was funny as hell, and I had HIGH expectations when AP2 came out.

    Well, was I ever let down when I saw AP2. Was it just me, or were there scenes in AP2 where Meyers was laughing so hard at his own jokes it was pathetic. It was almost as if he was hoping we'd laugh right along with him. I mean, there was some material that was okay, but the movie as a whole just didn't compare to AP1. Especially with Liz Hurley out of the picture.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."
