Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
Dr. Evil uses a device he calls a "Time Machine" to travel back to 1969 and remove Austin Powers' mojo. The sexually wounded swinger must travel back in time and, with the help of agent Felicity Shagwell, recover his vitality. Meanwhile, Dr. Evil's personal life runs amok as he discovers love, continues to shun his son and develops a close relationship with himself. Well, actually, a clone 1/8 his size whom he dubs "Mini-Me". The always time-baffled Dr. Evil begins his plan to put a gigantic cannon on the moon, thus turning it into a device called either "The Death Star" or "Alan Parson's Project," depending on which name is available.Written by

When Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) meets Frau Farbissina (Mindy Sterling) again, he says "Wie geht es Ihnen?" and she responds with "Sehr gut Herr Doktor." This translates to "How's it going?" and "Very good Mr. Doctor." In German, it is normal to refer to someone as Mr. Doctor, unlike in English where one would say Dr. Evil for example. In the German dubbed version, this is dubbed into Swedish. See more »
In the previous film, Number Two betrayed Dr. Evil and was incinerated. He obviously survived (much like Mustafa did; and judging from the burn on his face) but it is very unclear how and why he became faithful to Dr. Evil again. He didn't fully support Dr. Evil before his betrayal and Dr. Evil tried to kill him, hence this being one of the biggest plot holes between the two films. See more »
Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery, was frozen in 1967 and defrosted in the Nineties to battle his nemesis, Dr. Evil. After foiling his archenemy's plan to send a nuclear warhead to the center of the earth, Austin banished Dr. Evil to the cold recesses of space and settled down with his new wife, Vanessa, to live happily ever after. Or so he thought.

When the movie aired on TBS, the scene where Austin says, "This coffee tastes like sh*t" was edited slightly. The swear-word was replaced with "poop." See more »
"Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" was mostly really funny - with Austin continuing his face-off with Dr. Evil - but the stool sample scene was unnecessary. Still, the rest of the movie was a hoot, especially all the slang names for the spaceship. Some of the things in these movies, I wonder how they're able to come up with, especially some of Mini-Me's gags. All in all, it's a movie that you're sure to love, particularly with the Jerry Springer scene and all the associations with world events.
Fat Bastard. What a name! And of course, the character in the next movie had an even wackier name.
