The Austin Powers series is the name of a comedy film series from New Line Cinema released from 1997 to 2002 directed by Jay Roach, produced, written by and starring Mike Myers as both the title character and the main antagonist, Dr. Evil. The series spoofs primarily the James Bond, Derek Flint, Harry Palmer, and Matt Helm franchises, and incorporates myriad other elements of popular culture as it follows a British spy's quest to bring his nemesis to justice. The films poke fun at the outrageous plots, rampant sexual innuendo, and one-dimensional stock characters characteristically associated with 1960s spy films, as well as the cliché of the ultra-suave male superspy. Contrary to the handsome, super-smooth leading men of the James Bond genre, Austin Powers is not conventionally attractive (he is especially known for his bad teeth), although female characters in the films seem to find him irresistible.
