In recognition of the newest installment to the James Bond franchise, Skyfall out November 9th, today's Favorite Scene comes from the greatest spy, well at least the sexiest, well at least the best dressed, screw it I give up. There have been at least six credited 007's, but there is only one Austin Powers, the International Man of Mystery himself. The spy that always catches his man and frequently beds the woman.
Recently Nick and I were talking about the James Bond series and how we really couldn't get into it. When I had Netflix, I once made an attempt to watch all of the Bond films in order, but I think I only made it through the fifth film, "You Only Live Twice". Go ahead, pull my man card. I just couldn't do it. Maybe someday I'll give it another try, but in the meantime I give you the crushed velvet covered Austin Powers.
The scene comes from, Austin Powers in Goldmember, the 2002 release and third installment in the Powers' trilogy. Loosely based on the 007 movie Goldfinger as well as other Bond films, Austin battles his familiar foes Dr. Evil, Mini-Me, Fat Bastard and an even eviler Scott Evil. However, the real villain is the ruthless, pancake eating, roller skating, gold "membered" Johan van der Smut, a.k.a., Goldmember. The evil Goldmember has plans to flood the world, but as he always does Austin is able to save the day. Hope you enjoy the scene and have a Great Friday Bay Bee!. Sorry I had to do it.
