It's a super-sized Listener's Choice episode in which we cover THREE MOVIES! That's right, we watched all three Austin Powers films at the suggestion of a listener, and we dig deep into all three on this podcast. 

First up, it's Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), a low-budget movie with an unlikely premise that was a moderate hit and somehow spawned an immensely popular and profitable franchise thanks to impressions that are easy to do and a litany of quotable memes. But how is it as a movie? 

Then, it's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) or, as it's known in Singapore, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shioked Me (which means, "Austin Powers: The spy who made me feel good."). We can't believe there was ever a world without Mini-Me!

And finally, we come to Austin Powers In Goldmember (2002), co-starring Beyoncé Knowles of the religious pop song group Destiny's Child and Michael Caine of Jaws: The Revenge. Laci watched this movie 50 times as a teenager. What does she think of it now??
