We cannot celebrate International Men’s Day without honoring the birth of Austin Powers in 1997.
Without a doubt an international man of mystery, Austin Powers, played by SNL legend Mike Myers, who also played:
- Dr. Evil
- Fat Bastard
Throughout the Austin Powers series.
Pure fucking genius work when you consider that all this creativity came in the late 90’s. It is just a movie and series that after 20+ years, tons of quoting and fucked impressions, it still is one of the most comical set of movies in history.
Also, in times like today it still is appropriate. I don’t give a fuck what anybody says, this movie is gender neutral in terms of people who can enjoy and did enjoy this movie. Spy Who Shagged Me was probably the worst out of the three, but I still watched it a zillion times.
All three movies had bombshell women as Austin’s co-stars.
- Vanessa (Elizabeth Hurley)
- Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham)
- Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyonce)
The Austin Powers series is better than any James Bond.
I’m back on YouTube trying to make it happen.
Y’all have a fantastic weekend and if you’d like to continue reading on impactful men, click here for this Stone Cold Steve Austin piece.
