I love how this film simply IS funny and doesn't try so hard.  There's restraint in this one, a trust that what's happening is funny without the need for a flashing neon sign saying HERE'S WHERE YOU LAUGH (which posed a problem in the two sequels).  Dr. Evil, in particular, is hilarious in this one because he's dialed back and is simply a riff on Lorne Michaels.  He got too out there in the sequels for me.

Re: FRIDAY 17th July 19:00 GMT: Let‘s watch AUSTIN POWERS together

For those of you outside of the US: be aware that performance by Michael Meyers as Dr. Evil is a direct impersonation of Lorne Michaels from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.  If you see interviews with Lorne, you'll see that it's absolutely a spot on impersonation.  If memory serves, there was a rift between Meyers and Michaels at the time of filming, so the impersonation has a slight maliciousness to it that really works.
