Austin Powers in Goldmember

austin3More of the same, but cruder. Opening sequence is hilarious, Beyonce Knowles is a delight, but Myers stretches himself too thin. This movie suffers from Lethal Weapon-itis, where every character from the previous film(s) returns for the sequels, until no one gets any screen time. The International Man of Mystery is practically a supporting player. (AMC Burlington)
