- Twenty years ago this week, Austin Powers, the International Man of Mystery swung onto our screens in a parody of 1960s James Bond movies, and told us to behave!
- Some interesting facts about the movie:- Mike Myers initially wanted Jim Carrey to play the role of Dr Evil, but ended up playing the role himself due to Carrey’s ‘Liar Liar’ commitments.- Austin’s hair and glasses were inspired by a young professor Stephen Hawking.- Elizabeth Hurley and Mimi Rogers were allowed to keep their tight leather outfits from the movie…
- I can’t believe this film is 20 years old! I remember watching it when it came out, and quoting it endlessly in the months/years to follow. I still use the occasional ‘laser’, and occasionally demand the sum of 1 MILLION DOLLARS! Shh.
- Forthose familiar with the movie, what’s your favourite line/part?
