The 10 Most Consistent Movie Franchises

10. Austin Powers

Films: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999), Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)

You quoted the Austin Powers films throughout your childhood and your annoying uncle still quotes them to this day. No one can deny that Mike Myers's swinging super spy left an indelible mark on pop culture. Looking back, it's easy to dismiss the series for the cheap catchphrases and sight gags. But dismissing them also means overlooking the meticulous detail with which Myers and his team spoofed 1960s spy films. By his own confession, Meyers is a bit obsessed with these movies and his passion for them shows throughout the series. As silly as the films got at their low points, they remained Myers' unique vision and detailed labor of love.
