These days 'SNL' movies are a bit few and far between (come on, 'MacGruber 2'!), but at least some of their success lives on with legendary classics like 'Wayne's World or 'The Blues Brothers.' There have been 11 'SNL' movies total over the course of the last 40 years, but how well do you think you know the late-night sketch comedy legend's cinematic history? Test your knowledge with the latest installment of ‘You Think You Know Movies?‘
Released in 1997, 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery' starred former 'SNL' funny man Mike Myers as a British spy from the swinging '60s, awakened from a cryo-sleep to fight his old nemesis in the '90s, where he must hilariously adjust to modern life and culture. A satire of classic British spy films (notably the James Bond series), 'Austin Powers' was a smashing success, becoming an instant comedy classic and giving us two sequels. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
Believe it or not, it has almost been 20 years since 'Wayne's World 2' came out. (That little piece of info just makes our bones creak.) A long time, yes, but it's never too late to reunite with old friends, which is why we're absolutely delighted to hear that Mike Myers is working on a 'Wayne's World 3' with the lovable public access hosts from Illinois.
Not only that, but Myers has apparently finished the first draft of the screenplay! Find out what it's about after the break. Shhwiiing!
