The directorial debut of Mike Myers, aka Austin Powers, is a star-packed look at a legendary showbiz figure. Shep Gordon is the quintessential talent agent, a mover and a shaker who fell into the job when he met Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix on his first day in LA. His first client was Alice Cooper, his second Pink Floyd. From the weird (he once shared custody of a cat with Cary Grant) to the sublime (he once dated Sharon Stone), his stories are endlessly entertaining. His clients have some tales to tell too - Michael Douglas, Teddy Pendergrass, Sylvester Stallone, Blondie to name a few. Gordon stays on good terms with them all - including playing golf with Alice Cooper. Above it all, everyone says he's a nice guy, a person of integrity and honour, and this spirit shines throughout Myers' lively debut.
