10. FABIANIA UDENIO IN AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY (1997)Here’s an experiment you should try sometime in the near future: Revisit Mike Myers’ Austin Powers movies and see if they’re even remotely as humorous now as they were a decade ago. Around here, the once-agreeable novelty has totally worn off; lines such as “Oh, behave!” sound downright corny today.
Giving the first installment of Myers’ franchise, 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery, another look will be dually beneficial. On one hand, you’ll realize that it’s no longer cool to yell, “Yeah baby!” in a shoddy British accent. Secondly, you’ll get reacquainted with Alotta Fagina, played by Argentinian bombshell Fabiana Udenio. Austin’s trademark mojo works wonders on Fagina, who jumps into a hot tub with intentions of experiencing the power(s) firsthand. Myers’ stale brand of comedy is tolerable during the Fagina scene, mainly because his words shoot right through one ear and out the other. Udenio’s plentiful cleavage poking out of the water is an insurmountable distraction.
