That shagadelic secret agent arrives on home video Tuesday when "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" is released on videocassette and DVD.
The film set a record, posting the highest-grossing opening for a comedy. It has become a $205 million hit and seems headed for the same video success as the pop culture icon's first movie, "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery," which became Billboard's No. 1 video for 1998.
The 95-minute film stars Mike Myers in the title role, with Heather Graham, Rob Lowe, Elizabeth Hurley, Robert Wagner, Verne Troyer and Seth Green.
In this sequel, the International Man of Mystery in a very psychedelic Volkswagen Beetle must travel back to the swinging '60s, track down his mojo, and thwart Dr. Evil's plot to destroy the world. Along the way, Powers meets his match in the fab chick and CIA operative played by Graham and the usual cast of suspects including Dr. Evil's not-quite-evil-enough son Scott, henchwoman Frau Farbissina, an obese Scotsman and Mini-Me, a one-eighth replica of Dr. Evil.
The New Line Cinema videocassette lists for $22.98 and the Platinum Series DVD for $24.98. The DVD includes about 20 minutes of deleted scenes, and music videos from Madonna, Lenny Kravitz and Mel B. The film's soundtrack features songs by Kravitz, Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach.
Veteran's Day has not passed unremembered: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has released three vintage war films at $14.98, plus the initial release of "The Thin Red Line," with John Travolta, Nick Nolte, Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson, George Clooney and John Cusack.
The others are "The Longest Day" with John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Robert Mitchum, Rod Steiger and Peter Lawford; "Patton" with the late George C. Scott's Oscar-winning performance; and "Tora! Tora! Tora!" with a cast that includes Martin Balsam, Jason Robards, E.G. Marshall and Joseph Cotton.
CBS Video remembers America's greatest technological advancements with a pair of new video collections:
"Air Power," a four-volume package from the series that originally aired in 1956 and '57, focuses on the use of combat aircraft during World War II. Walter Cronkite hosts. Each volume in the $49.98 set -- "Victory From the Sky," "The Nazi War Machine," "Japanese Conquest" and "Allied Victory" -- runs about 90 minutes.
Charles Osgood narrates "The Century That Made America Great," a three-volume, three-hour set made up of "The Eagle Soars," "Wonders of the Century" and "Miracles of Communication," which includes some of the Kennedy-Nixon debates and moments with Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
