I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans, and the views that I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours! Ladies and Gentlemen, for the next three months, we’re going to need all the Mojo we can muster; as you can tell by the intro, We’re going to be dealing with a trilogy paying homage to the classic spy genre, thanks to SNL alum Mike Myers! (Cut to clips of the “Austin Powers” trilogy and other Mike Myers movies as James does a voiceover.)
And please keep in mind this trilogy was made when he was at the height of his post-SNL popularity as movies that starred Mike was okay at best. Yes, Wayne’s World was funny, and its sequel was okay at best. However, after a drought of good movies and a few personal setbacks, it appeared Mike was done. That is until one night, as he was coming home one day from Hockey practice, one night when the Dusty Springfield song “The Look Of Love” from the Peter Sellers OO7 take of Casino Royale played as Mike came up with the character. That song helped inspire the movies I will be looking at starting today.
