Didn't the owners of Goldfinger sue them into dropping the name?
Or has it changed from Goldmember to Austin Powers in Goldmember and thus avoided such trouble?

New Line and MGM came to a late arrangement that involved a whole lotta "you'll play OUR trailers in front of Lord of the Rings 2".

This was a month ago, you clueless freak.

Did you know there was a third Croc Dundee flick? Wink

I don't know why people like Austin Powers.

It's so... well... I don't know, FUCKING STUPID. I didn't even finish watching the first one since I was fed up with so much cringeful shit.

Ugh.

I immediately changed the TV channel when I saw the first 5 minutes of Austin Powers 2. Its fucking stupid, it goes way beyond the line of "James Bond" spoof.

I can't stand it. I'm afraid I'll die in the theater if someone forces me to see Goldmember. God, ugh Mad

I liked the preview which was the whole credits sequence from the original film, only done with midgets.

I only saw it once, though. Did the Little People of America take offense?

Okay, first Slyder, there's a lot more going on than just a James Bond spoof. Ever heard of Our Man Flint? It's called a genre, and it's also called damn funny. How you can give four stars to Scooby Doo and call Austin Powers cringeful is beyond me. I guess they should give Dr Evil an animated dog, or make Matthew Lillard play Jaws, because that would be funny, right?

Talk amongst yourselves. I'm all verklempt.

When did I give Scooby Doo 4 stars?

I haven't even seen the freaking film, and I sure as hell don't plan to see it.

Please, cut me some slack for fuck's sake.

I can take some spoofs like Airplane and The Naked Gun, but when it goes to the limit (which IMO is, so far), I just want to change the fucking channel.

Goldmemeber is getting good reviews so far, so who knows, maybe I'll see it after all.

And what the hell is verklempt?

Just got back.

They could have changed the title to Shitmember.

I really dug the first two AP flicks, but this one's fairly rote, desperate and dull.
