    From Cinema Confidential :



    I assumed another one was inevitable but I was hoping maybe he'd wait a bit and do several other projects in between.

    I guess 500 tons of money has its effect. [​IMG]

    I was hoping I had seen the last of the AP sequels when I watched Goldmember - hardly any good laughs to be had. Maybe I was mistaken but did it not conclude with a 'The End' signage?

    I love AP2, one of my favorite movies. AP1 was not bad, but I don't like it nearly as much as 2. AP3, didn't do much for me, I rate it as the worst of the bunch. Can't really see the need for an AP4.

    I loved part 3, and will wait with open arms for the 4th.

    I liked Goldmember a helluva lot more than Part 2. I wouldn't mind seeing another one, provided the character Goldmember is nowhere to be seen and Seth Green becomes the new Dr. Evil as implied by the end of the third film.

    Goldmember, IMO, really was the worst of the bunch. It ruined the things set up by the series (Dr. Evil being REALLY evil, Scott not being able to connect with him, Austin having some sort of internal conflict) and only gave a few truly funny moments. To me, AP1 and 2 were instant classic comedies, especially 1.

    I just hope they don't follow suit with the first 3 films and have it take place in the 80s. Though all 3 women returning would be cool.

    I saw Goldmember twice and I don't ever want to see it again. Mike needs to stop beating a dead horse. The first five minutes of the film were absolute genius and had me gasping for air, but the rest of the film was half-hearted.

    Where's Wayne's World 3? [​IMG] Actually I'd love to see Mike and Dana team up for a movie. They were one of the best duos on SNL and beyond.

    I think it would really give the 4th film a boost if he could slip Dana in there somewhere, let him be the new villain rather than taking on yet another role.


    Anyway, while AP3 was more uneven than the first two films, I still enjoyed it quite a bit and look forward to just a little bit more of those characters. It's doubtful that it will make the kind of BO that 2 and 3 did, but it should still do well enough to warrant making it.

    I really thought all 3 were very funny flicks...but I'd rather see another Waynes World....or *gasp* something original...

    I liked all three films, but really feel that it's over. I don't hae any empty feeling inside aching for a fourth film.

    IMHO no more WWIII WWII was so bad that it brought down the original and I cannot stomache to watch either one. Keep up the Austin Powers fun though, just my $.02,

    Funny how we're tired of AP and the lack of originality... when this is one of the recent few original comedic characters that is actually funny.

    Now, AP3 did go to the AP1/2 well way to often (and Caine was wasted, could've been so much more), but a well written 4 would be a welcome release.

    After all, AP2 is the only film ever to have an Exorcist parody that is actually funny (one of my favorite comedy scenes ever).

    I thought Goldmember was awful, but I still consider myself a fan of the series.

    I'll see it!!
