Austin Powers 3: Goldmember finally made it to our shores and I never
laughed so hard in a movie so far this year! The in-jokes are priceless!
“Welcome to my submarine lair! I like it! It’s long, hard and full of sea
men!”, “You may be a cunning linguist, but I’m a master debator!”.
That spoof of Jay-Z’s “Hard Knock Life” was absolutely hilarious! Cameo
appearances are also aplenty and the opening sequence was certainly
a big surprise! I was also surprised that the movie actually passed our
censors for the most part (did notice a snip or two there but it wasn’t
more than 3-4 seconds total at most). Either the censors had wisen up
or they really don’t understand the play of words that makes up the
sexual innuendos in the movie ‘cos their English sucks. I’m in the
opinion of the latter.
