Austin Powers in Goldmember Arrive late and risk missing the comic high point, a cameo-crammed opener. But there are plenty of laughs in the rest of Mike Myers’s third Powers play, many of them bawdy. Michael Caine costars. (PG-13)

Lovely & Amazing A small but well-observed comic drama about a mother and three daughters and how they are the same, yet different. Catherine Keener, Brenda Blethyn and Emily Mortimer star. (R)

The Master of Disguise But not of comedy. Limp, silly fantasy starring Dana Carvey as a sweet-hearted dweeb with a genius for assuming other identities, including a turtleman and our President. (PG)

Road to Perdition Don’t miss this dark yet lyrical drama about a Mob enforcer (Tom Hanks) seeking revenge and redemption. Hanks and costar Paul Newman shine. (R)

Signs Mel Gibson wrestles with his loss of faith, and unexpected visitors, in a wannabe profound thriller from director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense). (PG-13)

Stuart Little 2 Liked the first mouse tale? For small fry, more of the same. (PG)
