Austin Powers 2 Reference Guide
So you think you're an expert on the sequel to Austin Powers, do you? Perhaps you should refer to the Austin Powers 2 Reference Guide to see if you truly know your trivia. Did you know that the character of Mini-Me is in reference to The Island of Dr. Moreau? And also is a reference to the bald, silent, short butler who hangs with No. 6 in The Prisoner? Or that the secret base in the hollowed-out volcano refers to SPECTRE's secret base in the 1967 film You Only Live Twice? Some of the references do denote sexual puns, so if you're easily offended by blue humor, by all means don't click!
