My girl works at a theater in Annapolis, MD and they got their prints for the movie monday...after they were done working, they ran the movie to see that their print is a good copy...plus they get to invite friends and have a killer night


Damn, that was the funniest movie i've seen in a while. Non-stop laughs, literally my stomache and face are a little sore from all the laughter
The first 5 mins are some of the best stuff i've seen in a while, and the movie just gets better and better from there...

Well, i didn't really like the chick who is the new woman in this movie, Foxy Cleopatria. She just didn't do it for me...she looked 16, to me at least

SPOILER ALERT!!!

Hey! That's Beyonce Knowles you're talking about! She's one of the hottest chicks on the planet! Take it back before I wear out the exclamation mark key on my keyboard!

Send me the spoilers - this movie will never pass the $100 test that movies with the wife have become thanks to rising prices of tickets & babysitters.

and Beyonce doesn't do much for me either - sorry Qubber

I just can't understand what is so great about the AP franchise. I don't want to sound like a snob. I do enjoy some "low-brow" humor, but I've never found the AP movies to be any more than very mildly amusing.

I know so many people who love those movies, but I've never been fond of them. I just don't get it.

We got our print in for Goldmember today at 4, and we decided to have a screening of it just for whoever could come: FUNNY FUNNY MOVIE. Best laugh-out-loud movie I've seen in years...

I don't know if I'm going to see it or not. I think there's about 500 cameos in the movie, and that tends to spoil the movie for me.

Rikidozan, my local theater is having a sneak preview of Austin Powers 3 tonight. Should I miss Smackdown (and REY!) to go see it? Right now I think I probably will see Austin over Vince and crew.

I saw it this afternoon at a preview and the best bits are easily the "Austinpussy" segments, that are laugh out loud funny, especially the opening bit over the titles ("Yeah, baby... yeah").

I liked it. What I really thought though is that Beyonce is blatantly the hottest thing ever! You're all frickin' philistines! .

Hey Qubber, I saw the sneak preview of Austin Powers last night with about 12 of my friends, all guys, and we agreed Beyonce was hot as hell in that movie. Oh my god was she hot... nice costumes that show off a lot of cleveage and breasts (she has incredible breasts... never noticed before this). Anyway, onto the movie I am so glad I went! It is funnier than the first two, and I think the funniest movie of the year. The whole theater laughed through the entire movie, the movie within a movie was great as well.... funniest intro to almost any movie EVER. Damn good movie, you need to see this!!

Rikidozian was right, the cameos are great and don't ruin the movie.

I just got back from it. The first half hour is pretty slow (aside from the awesome credits sequence), but once the movie starts rolling, it's probably the funniest one yet.

The only real complaint I have is the very existence of the Goldmember character. I really don't see the point. He wasn't funny. Not even a bit. Oh well...

And the cameos were handled *extremely* cleverly, and they won't be a hinderance to the movie at all, trust me. In fact, most of the cameos are the best parts of the movie.

Eh. Saw it on Thursday and thought that while it had real laugh-out-loud scenes (the opening sequence, the International Man Of Mystery Academy, "MOLEY MOLEY MOLEY!"), a lot of it just dragged. Michael Caine just wasn't funny, and while Goldmember was an improvement over Fat Bastard he still didn't have me in stitches. Austin's fight with Mini-Me in the hotel room was priceless though. Overall, it doesn't beat the first two, but it's still worth a watch.

Yeah, to use wrestling terms, this movie was a spotfest. It was laugh out loud in a bunch of parts, and extremely funny, but it had no plot, no character developement (as in trying to make me care) or anything resembling a good movie in it. But damn was it funny. Two things I came away from the theater with.... I want to see the next LOTR (great preview, right up until the showed Gandalf the White ARGH) and AUSTINPUSSY. Goddamn, that would make me laugh so much.

It was pretty funny. I was afraid they would coast and just go "yeah, baby, behave" for 90 minutes, since that was already pretty much happening in APII. But that didn't really happen... they seem to be working to give it some themes and continuity, and come up with new stuff. The highlight for me, by a long shot, was the music video. That was the one thing that really had me in stitches, although everyone else in my theater was going nuts for everything that came on the screen.

This movie had me laughing my ass off! The first AP was a spoof on spy movies, the second was its own thing, the third is a spoof on AP movies. I was afraid it would just be a repeat of all the old jokes, but it's not. It's clever and HILARIOUS!

My take on Goldmember...

The Good:

* DeVito's cameo was the funniest thing I saw all night.

* I could care less about Beyonce as a singer or as an image to wank to, but in a heavily stripped-down sidekick role in this movie, she was perfectly adequate. Certainly no worse than Heather Graham, who was wonderful eye candy but a frightening actress in #2.

* Verne Troyer owned the movie, as I expected. Whenever he wasn't on-screen, it suffered. Nice comic timing and slapstick antics.

* I didn't mind the flashback/Academy sequence.

The Bad:

* NO MORE RAP SEQUENCES. PLEASE. The musical number was stupefyingly bad.

* When a movie rehashes jokes from a predecessor, it's not a good omen. When a movie makes jokes ABOUT rehashing jokes from a predecessor -- MORE THAN ONCE -- it's REALLY not a good omen. When a movie does that and CONTINUES to rehash the jokes... ouch. This one was entertaining, but let the series end at #3 if that's all the ideas they have.

* For all the hype and word-of-mouth centered around the first ten minutes... I didn't care for it all that much. Too much Britney (for no good reason), not many good gags in the credits sequence, one cameo out of four in the mini-movie that was funny (though, as I said above, that one was hysterical).

* If they do make a fourth, ditch Goldmember. Pronto. Unfunny, intentionally disturbing, and not really funny or interesting.

* Michael Caine mailed in his performance.

* A typical problem with today's movies -- half the jokes that worked were in the commercials hyping it. (Mini-Austin and sharks-with-lasers come to mind.)

* And where was Mindy Sterling (Frau) in this one? One brief sequence with Dr. Evil and then about all she did was stand in the background and nod now and then.

All in all, it wasn't a BAD movie... I've paid to see a lot worse. It definitely had the feeling of contractually-obligated-sequel, however, and for my money, the second one was better as a whole. This one just didn't seem to have much in the way of inspiration, and a really disjointed screenplay.

Well, here's what it all comes down to. The mighty BUCK. I think when Star Wars hit, hollywood realized that if they could make movies with no critical approval (Star Wars was panned by PLENTY of them back then) then why not?
