    I went to see it this weekend, it's a 'park your brain at the door' kind of film, it's cute with some funny lines. If you understand Canadian Quebec (Justin Timberlakes character) culture, it's even funnier. I would reccomend it.

    Mike Meyers has definitely lost his appeal since the last Austin Powers movie. No dice, he's not funny anymore.

    I enjoyed it. Justin Timberlake performed much better than I was expecting. No, I don't think it was as humorous as the first or second Austin Powers movies but I don't think it was bad, either. I always like Mike Meyers and Jessica Alba is perfection. I mean, how could you not love that girl? Marry me. That's all I've got to say. And then you've got Colbert popping up as a sports commentator. I think if the jokes got bumped from PG-13 level to R, it would've been great. For a $5 matinee, it was a good deal

    I went to see it last Friday and I liked it. It's light, nothing serious-- no one's trying to rule or save the world.

    I saw it in French (a translation) and it was funny to hear Justin Timberlake's character speak French with a Montreal/Quebec accent.

    I'm not at all surprised that Mike Myer's film is about hockey since he's Canadian and is a native of Toronto (Scarborough).

    Did anyone notice Sir Ben Kingsley or did I imagine it?

    All I know is that the promos have been overwhelming. They have advertised and advertised for this movie.

    I thought that this and the Zohan movie both looked horrible. Then I watched Zohan on the internet and I can honestly say that I really enjoyed the first 20 minutes.

    I'll probably like parts of Love Guru too.

    Haha, well it seems you've confused the aforementioned Meyers with Michael Myers, lovable misunderstood sometimes murderer from the Holloween franchise of films.


    I can see how you'd get the two confused as they both kill horribly in their movies.

    It looked like someone took Austin Powers' humor, ran it through a wood chipper, fed it to Verne Troyer, and shat it back out in the form of a bearded hippie Myers. Old hat gone bad.

    Oh, droll, very droll.

    That's what I figured-don't get me wrong, MM has made himself a household name with Austin Powers, but the truth is that he may have peaked after Goldmember.

    I think he should stick with doing the voice of Fat Bastard doing the voice of Shrek.

    Which is sad. I preferred him as Wayne in Wayne's World.
