Executive summary: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Jay Roach had been a cinematographer and editor for a decade, toiling in television (Lifepod, Space Rangers) and forgettable films (Blown Away, The Empty Mirror) before being hired to direct his first film, the Mike Myers spy spoof Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. It made a respectable $53 million, but its sequels, also directed by Roach, have dwarfed that take. Roach's Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers with Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro have also been hugely popular Hollywood moneymakers.
