If you like austin powers and have seen all three of the films, here is were to vote for which one you think is the best and the funniest.

I would say the first, it seems the most original and funny with a humorous story, but sadly mini mii is not in the first one   cry  oh well frown.

The first one, though the second one ws close. In fact, the 3rd one wasn't far of either, they're all great.

The 2nd one gets my vote, got I and II on DVD and the extra scenes for the 2nd one SHOULD be in the film, they're hilarious.

Haven't seen III yet (God, I'm so crap!)

Mike Meyers really gets on my nerves, but the first two Austin Powers movies are pretty funny. I guess I'll vote for the first one. Why not.

I can't remember the first and second ones very clearly but i like them the best. It's really funny the way they drag a joke out for ages. Ie- When Dr. Evil presses the button that tips up one of his followers chairs, and you can hear him screaming for help for ages. And then someone comes and shoots him and he says: "You shot me!!??!" etc.  big grin

I have to go with the first movie.  It was fresh and hilarious, truly comedic parody at its finest.  The second film was terrible by comparison.  Neither Fat Bastard nor Mini Me were great additions to the cast, and the re-use of so many jokes really robbed it of its originality.  The third film was also weak.  It wasn't as bad as the second film, but it still paled in comparison to the original.  The Goldmember character himself was a major drawback, as was the complete lack of an actual ending and the trite, easily forseeable fraternal relationships revealed near the end.  The idea that a spy from the 60's was cryogenically frozen and reanimated in the 90's was great and not too far-fetched (particularly for Futurama fans), but the time-travelling involved in the second two movies sort of killed the spy-spoof-feel of the films.

I give it to the first, the original.  The others are close behind.  Goldmember has really been growing on me of late, esp. Goldmember himself.

The first one was great fun. The second one was much worse, didn't bother with the third...

I'm not into it either, but I'll pick the first one even though I have no idea, because sequals aren't normally as good  smile

As usual, the grammar in the poll could do to be a bit better.

I think The Spy Who Shagged Me is my favourite, because it's got the most Dr Evil in it out of all of them. But the first one is excellent, because it establishes the characters and has all the fish-out-of-water stuff.

I liked the first one, and vote for the second one, but the third one just had a string of cameos and annoying, repetitive gags in place of funny jokes.  But to be fair, I did like Michael Caine.  ('Course, I always like Michael Caine...)

I say the first one, the one with the effect of surprise.

The second was not as good, but still entertaining.

But I really did not like the third one. 1h15 of dancing and about 15minutes of plot... (But I must admit the intro with spielberg was excellent)

The first one was the best because it was a perfect spy-movie parody. The third one was the second best, and the second one was the worst.

The Spy Who Shagged Me was hands down the funniest Austin Powers movie ever!  Heather Graham is hot!  I even went to see it the night it first opened in the theaters!  Just everything about it: the Jerry Springer scenes, Scott insulting Dr. Evil, Heather Graham, the time-travel thing, Mini-Me, Dr. Evil's hilarious antics and his rap about his love for Mini-Me, the scene where people see Dr. Evil's spaceship that looks like a d**k!  Just awesome!

I liked the first one as well.  The third one, Goldmember, I had high expectations for, but I didn't really like it.  First off, Beyonce Knowles stuck out like a sore thumb and didn't really do much, and the whole thing about Scott wanting to be like Dr. Evil.  Couldn't Scott have just remained the same cynical teenager who insults Dr. Evil?  Goldmember the character wasn't really that funny, anyway.  The submarine was cool, and I didn't like how Austin Powers and Dr. Evil turned out to be brothers.  That was lame.  The only funny parts were Dr. Evil rapping in prison, the car chase, and the part where Mr. Roboto wanted them to eat crab and Austin thought he said, 'dung'.  If you ask me, Tyra Banks should've played Foxxy Cleopatra.  Maybe if Tyra Banks had played that part instead of Beyonce, the character could've done a lot more than be just s sex symbol.  Besides, Beyonce is no Pam Grier!  Also, at the end, Scott should've ran away with Kelly Osbourne or something like that instead of vowing revenge and becoming the new Dr. Evil.

Anyway that's my two cents.

Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery. There all good but the first ones the best. The sequals can never be as good as the origional.
