Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

While we can’t recommend this film for any age of child, if your children do see it, you may want to discuss some items with them, including the many slang sexual references that may not be considered appropriate in your family.

Meyer’s characters (he plays three of them) are portrayed as having obsessive sexual behaviors, and children may accept these portrayals literally, not recognizing that they are intended to be humorous. What are the consequences of this type of behavior in reality?
