|New Line Cinema | Release Date: May 2, 1997||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
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.
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.
