Vanessa, the fembot from "Austin Powers"

Okay, I'll admit it.  I love this film!  Mike Myers has done an outstanding job on this silly 60's styled comedy.  Vanessa, Austin's recently discovered "fembot" wife, is really a  part of a plot to kill him, orchestrated by Dr. Evil (also played by Mike Myers).  Although the only robot in the film is in the beginning, Vanessa, played by Elizabeth Hurley, will be known as another adequate spark in movie robot history.

Note:  The first time I had heard the term "fembot", was in the 70's television series "Six Million Dollar Man".  The show was loaded with these sorts of adversaries.

Special thanks goes to my friend Mike for the great DVD pictures!
