Also I love The Austin Powers Trilogy, he showed off so much incredible range. It took me a while to realize that Mike was not just Austin Powers but also Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard and Goldmember.

Like just about everything in the Austin Powers trilogy, the title Goldmember pokes fun at the 1964 James Bond title Goldfinger. The title was just about scrapped because of copyright issues with MGM.

The comparisons between James Bond and Austin Powers may at first seem far-reaching and somewhat absurd. To many viewers, the Austin Powers trilogy gives way for only one method of thought: comedic satire. However, as this paper articulates, regardless of whether or not Meyers and the film’s producers intended to critique the Bond films on a political and sociocultural level, their work stands alone as a sharp contrast to the absurdities of the Bond franchise. Obviously, their work with the comedic films was not intended to simply highlight gender inequality and racism in Ian Fleming’s stories. However, careful examination of the Austin Powers trilogy illustrates that regardless of intention, many topics regarding women, international diplomacy, and race and ethnicity were fleshed out as a result of Meyers’s films being made. As the Bond franchise moves forward, I expect that it will only continue to expand on the trend of making more realistic films. The villains and plots to the most recent Bond films (despite Quantum of Solace which suffered mediocre reviews) are far more emotionally and psychologically gripping than any of their previous counterparts. In doing so, the Bond figure has slowly garnered a more respected name in both the entertainment industry and social circles.
