Random 90s Movie Review #5: Austin Powers

Throw me a frickin bone here.. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is most definitely a classic. It was released in 1997 and barely caught the tail end of the 60s mod revival that happened in the mid 90s, but regardless it was awesome of its own accord. Yeah, baby!! So quotable; so good.

Why you should watch this movie: The scene where Dr Evil and his son Scott attend a therapy session is a must see ("Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy.."). Plus, you might watch this and remember how you kinda had a thing for Seth Green back then. Anyone??

Why you shouldn't watch this movie: Perhaps you don't like toilet humor or Burt Bacharach.

I Heart the Nineties rating: Two snaps up!

I will also leave you with this. It's an official music video made to promote the movie. I remember seeing it on MTV or VH1 just once and it got stuck in my head for a very long time that spring.


  1. Hello, I just wanted to express my deepest appreciation for you. I am a costume design student and it is insanely difficult to source fashion trends from any less than about 20 or so years ago and your blog is an absolute gold mine. The Delia's catalogs alone are amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    1. You're very welcome! It's nice to know that my catalog hoarding is actually benefiting someone :)
