Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999)

The second of the Austin Powers films is still very much spoofing James Bond, Derek Flint and Jason King.  All of which are fairly easy targets but what you have to love about this sequel is the inspired invention of the Mini-Me character as played by Verne Troyer.  That was worth the cost of admission alone.
There's a plot in there somewhere but its not really important as its only a vehicle to hang the gags and 60's visuals off. Smashing!
Any way here are the spacesuits which have very nice retro fish-bowl helmets and a suit design that has more than a passing nod towards Kubrick's; 2001.
