'90s James Bond spoof has tons of sex, crude humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a 1997 movie in which Mike Myers plays a Bond-esque British spy transported from the Swinging London era of the 1960s to the relatively austere 1990s to foil the world-destroying schemes of Dr. Evil, also played by Mike Myers. The humor rooted in sexual innuendo is almost nonstop -- in addition to Powers constantly talking about wanting to "shag" women, there are sight gags in which nudity is covered by objects or other body parts at just the right place and just the right time, seemingly endless euphemisms for genitalia, and a female antagonist named "Alotta Fagina." A Swedish sex device that's supposed to be a pump that enlarges a man's penis is a recurring gag. The violence is of the comedic pratfall variety: Powers leaps into his convertible only to hit himself in the groin with his gearshift, one of Dr. Evil's security guards is dipped into a body of water with vicious sea bass and emerges decapitated, many of Evil's henchmen are flipped from their chairs and killed in a flaming pit below them. There is some profanity, including "s--t," "bastard," and "blow me." Flatulence and defecation-themed humor abound. Robot mod women shoot bullets and poison gas from their breasts. Expect some glamorization of casual sex and Mmntion of the '60s drug culture.
