Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
I'm back, baby!
When diabolical genius Dr. Evil travels back in time to steal superspy Austin Powers's "mojo," Austin must return to the swingin' '60s himself -- with the help of American agent Felicity Shagwell -- to stop the dastardly plan. Once there, Austin faces off against Dr. Evil's army of minions and saves the world in his own unbelievably groovy way.
Everyone has a guilty pleasure that requires nothing but the ability to laugh and enjoy it. The Austin Powers films of the late nineties were silly and a lot of fun, and with Mike Myers showing his obvious comedic talents to play several characters successfully in the same movie, this is stuffed full of double-entendre's and quality eye-candy.
In the first film we got Liz Hurley, hardly the greatest actress ever to grace our screens but a super-hot leading lady. Gone but not forgotten she gets replaced by Heather Graham as the wonderfully named Felicity Shagwell. A C.I.A agent, she plays Powers's love interest and gets to display some stunning sixties outfits that enhance her considerable assets.Powers's nemesis Dr Evil…
"We'll call it... Preperation H!"
Best comedy sequel ever!
MOVIE A DAY FOR A YEAR - DAY 181
Mike Meyers is a comedy god.
Some really funny moments. Lots and lots and lots of fast-fire gags, but that's why it works, because ninety percent of the them hit. It can be embarrassing at times, but mostly it really works and it makes for a very funny comedy.
I'm not even ashamed of my love for this film. I've said this so many times but comedy films should be rated in laughs and this provides plenty.
"If you've got a time machine, why don't you just go back and kill Austin Powers when he's sitting on the crapper or something?"
Whilst Mike Myers seems to love playing multiple characters, he drops the ball in terms of comedy multiple times in his second Austin Powers outing.
Sometimes incredibly clever (a majority of the Dr. Evil scenes) and sometimes unbelievably stupid (the Fat Bastard's crap scene), The Spy Who Shagged Me is a hard film to review, but Heather Graham is very attractive so...double points for that.
More of the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing as the previous left wanting for a sequel and certainly what is here is a successful one with plenty of jokes and set pieces that well and truly hit the mark.
Lots of laughs.
This is my bag baby
People could easily point to the problem with a lot of sequels where they just rehash the same jokes. Well, this film could fall into that trap, but I would argue they take the same jokes to the next level instead of simply rehashing them. On the down side, Fat Bastard doesn't work for me as well as he does for others (but still a quote machine), though the addition of Heather Graham is outstanding and balancing.
Imo, the best out of the trilogy. From SNL alumni Mike Myers comes the English spy who makes me laugh every time I watch it, more laughs than the first. Fat basterd is riot. Dr Evil will always be one of the best comedic villains to be put on film. Seth green is just awesome and fits the role well.
Minus one star for getting rid of the beautiful and talented Elizabeth Hurley and swapping her for the beautiful-only Heather Graham. Graham looks great, but can't act. And she can't act comedy at all. (Sorry, Heather Graham fans.) Glad they didn't kill off Seth Green. Michael York appearing as the same character in modern day and back in 1969 was fun. The addition of Rob Lowe as the 1969 Robert Wagner character was somewhat puzzling. Mini-Me is a great addition. Fat Bastard is a not so great addition. (Sorry, Fat Bastard fans.) The whole enterprise is even more dirty-minded than the first movie. And that made me sad when I originally saw "Shagged" in 1999, and slightly sad upon my rewatch.
Okosan viszi tovább az előző filmet, de önmagában már nem annyire jó. Viszont itt mutatkozik be Mini Me!
Austin Powers soldiers on in this repetitive, flat footed, and just plain dull sequel. Most of the gags are beat for beat remixes of jokes from the first film. If I were feeling generous (and if the jokes were funny) I might say that the repetition is a comment on the formulaic nature of the Bond series. But I'm not, and they aren't. Despite maybe one or two laughs, the movie's a dud.
MY THREE WORDS
Flat, dull, shiny.
Films with scenes where someone has a poo.

Let's give some credit to the unsung artisans responsible for setting the mood at the beginning of a film, or…
