Myers gives us all of the exaggerated physical schtick of Jim Carrey plus the added bonus of wickedly clever writing that refuses to let you escape.
80
Myers has hit upon a genuinely original schtick, and that fact alone is immeasurably groovy.

The key to the film, however, is the joyous performance of Mike Myers, who plays both the Beatle-mopped Austin Powers and the bald-headed Dr. Evil.

I see Austin Powers as Myers' desperate cry for help -- a plea to stop him before he does schtick again.
