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.
This follows on from where the last film left off - and finds a hilarious way to have a new leading lady.
Heather Graham in Austin Powers. 👌
A classic. A CLASSIC.
Still on a brief hiatus from James Bond, so time for my thoughts on AP2: Heather Graham is terrible, that Starbucks joke makes more sense to me now than it did in '99, Mini-me is actually a pretty solid joke, even if he outstays his welcome.
A movie that I remembered fondly but fails to live up to the memories of it but nevertheless laugh out loud moments are scattered across this spy flick.
Slightly better than the first one made so because of Mini Me. A lot of the gags are the same but still hold up. Will Ferrell has a good clever appearance. Having Liz Hurley at the start was a good idea too.
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.
Films with scenes where someone has a poo.

I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
