    The third Austin Powers movie is bad but s special exception must be made for Goldmember as a character:

    “I like gooooooooooooooold!”
    “Would you like a shmoke und a pancake?

    A what?

    A shmoke und a pancake. You know, a flapjack und a shigarette? No? Shigar und a waffle? No? Pipe und a crepe? No? Bong und a blintz? No? Well, then there ish no pleashing you.”

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Austin Powers sucked (the first one was ok).


    And so did all of those ****ing terrible spoof movies. Those were some of the worst commercial dreck to ever come out of Hollywood.

    I'm pretty sure they were aimed at tweens. In all honesty, it was that kind of humor. Porkys meets Tom Green.

    I loved the first Austin Powers. The "Swinging London" opening is one of the most fun, joyful, on target movie openings I've ever seen.

    You need to see it with eyes that still see Mike Myers as wittingly playing an over-the-top stupid character for laughs, not (as we learned) because that's all he can manage.

    But I like The Love Guru. It gave us Justin Timberlake doing a terrible Quebecois accent. And properly mocked FOX Sports and hockey broadcasters in general.


    *Edit* Also, at 14% it firmly meets the XKCD Movie Challenge of a movie generally sh*t upon that I like.

    I liked the first two Austin Powers. Goldmember was okay for one viewing, but that was it.

    Goldmember was also the source of one of the most niche pieces of bar trivia I've ever seen. "Who played Dr. Evil in the movie trailer parody scene?"

    Oddly, same with Scary Movie.
    Chris Elliot with the hand bit in Scary Movie 2 provides some of the best jokes of the series, though.

    I gotta admit, it sure does.

    And to be fair I've never seen it, I've only heard the stories whispered around campfires at night.

    He pimped the heck out of that little cameo on the Jimmy Circuit.

    He's trying to claw his way back and I hope he makes it. Wayne's World gave me honest joy. He's obviously a very smart man. I have no idea what happened, but I assume it's the old story: you get so big they stop editing you. It must take superhuman modesty to have the world at your feet and still tell yourself every morning "I am just as full of sh-t as everyone else."

    Didn't he make them re record nearly all of his stuff in Shrek because he decided he's going to do his Scottish accent at the 11th hour?

    Saw Four Weddings and a Funeral last night for the first time since it came out. It holds up very well. Also it's the first time I've seen it married. It is a much, much better movie than I remember it as. For a RomCom it's practically PhD quality intelligence in writing and direction, and the acting is great.

    I think I have to elevate this above When Harry Met Sally to the best* RomCom ever made.

    * In the modern age of movies for children (post-1969). In the classic age of movies for adults the greatest RomComs are:

    It Happened One Night
    Singing in the Rain
    Philadelphia Story
    Bringing Up Baby

    I probably have mentioned it before, but "My Best Friend's Wedding" isn't horrible, and I actually kind of enjoyed it. I think Julia Roberts playing a total bit* helped it quite a bit. Is it great? Nah. Would I turn it off? Nah.

    I shall turn in my Man Card for the next day.

    The horsehead bookend thing.

    Been a few years, I need to re-watch that one this October.

    It's my favorite Julia movie. Horseteeth was the closest I had to a boyhood celeb crush.

    What a horrible cheesy, obvious-heart-string POS movie. The only upside of seeing that movie, is that it showed exactly what I hate in romantic movies so I can avoid similar ones in the future.
