COMEDY Movie Scene of the Day:

CLIP DESCRIPTION:
A birthing instructor (Siobhan Fallon) identifies Kate (Tina Fey) and Angie (Amy Poehler) as “lesbian lovers”; she frowns on anesthesia.

FILM DESCRIPTION:
Former Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” co-anchors Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-star in this baby-fever comedy about a single, career-oriented woman who previously put parenthood on hold, and is forced to hire a surrogate mother when she discovers there is only a one-in-a-million chance that she will be able to get pregnant. Kate Holbrook (Fey) is a 37-year-old business executive who has always put her professional life before her personal life, but these days her biological clock is ticking louder than ever before. As with everything else she has accomplished in life, Kate is determined to have a child on her own terms. Unfortunately for Kate, the chance of her ever becoming pregnant is slim to none. Undaunted, a willful Kate drafts South Philly working-class girl Angie Ostrowiski (Poehler) — a woman who may just be her polar opposite — to be a surrogate mother. Subsequently informed by the head of the surrogacy center (Sigourney Weaver) that her surrogate is indeed pregnant, the excited mother-to-be soon purchases every child-rearing book she can find and excitedly begins the nesting process. But life hasn’t quit throwing Kate curveballs just yet, because when a pregnant Angie shows up on her doorstep with no place to live, the woman who once thrived on order finds her life descending into chaos. Now, as Kate attempts to transform Angie into the ideal expectant mother, this odd couple will discover that families aren’t always biological, but occasionally formed through friendship as well. Writer Michael McCullers, who authored the screenplays for Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Undercover Brother in addition to working on Saturday Night Live, makes his feature directorial debut with a self-penned screenplay.

COMEDY Movie Scene of the Day: ONE MILLION DOLLARS. From Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)

Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) learns that a million-dollar ransom isn’t as threatening in the 1990s as it was in the 1960s.

FILM DESCRIPTION:
Less a parody of the early James Bond film than a parody of the films that parodied the early James Bond films, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery stars Mike Myers as Austin Powers, by day a hipster fashion photographer in mid-’60s swingin’ London and by night a crime-fighting secret agent. Austin’s wardrobe is pure Carnaby Street at its most outrageous, his vocabulary is crowded by the cool lingo of the day (“Groovy, baby! Yeah!!”), and he’s irresistible to women, despite the fact that he can be charitably described as “stocky” and has teeth that strike fear into any practicing dentist. When his nemesis, the arch-enemy Dr. Evil (also played by Myers), has himself cryogenically frozen and sent into space, Powers also has himself put on ice so he can be thawed out when Dr. Evil returns. Come 1997, Dr. Evil returns to Earth and is back to his old tricks, so Austin is thawed out and returned to active service — though he soon discovers his style doesn’t play so well 30 years on. The supporting cast includes Elizabeth Hurley as Austin’s sidekick, Vanessa Kensington; Michael York as his boss, Basil Exposition; Robert Wagner as Dr. Evil’s assistant, Number Two; and Seth Green as Dr. Evil’s troubled son, Scott Evil. Ming Tea, the swingin’ pop band that periodically backs up Austin, includes real life pop-rockers Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery was a mild box-office hit but an even bigger success on home video, which led to the 1999 sequel, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
