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.
"We'll call it... Preperation H!"
Best comedy sequel ever!
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…

Mike Meyers is a comedy god.
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.
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.
You're the margarine of evil.
Sigue el mismo esquema que la primera, pero esta vez volviendo a los 60. Más chistes verdes, más humor absurdo... Jerry Springer (del que ahora nadie se acuerda, pero que lo petaba en los 90) y Mini-me, el personaje que se mea en lo politcamente correcto, con permiso de Fat Bastard.
Hasta aquí bien.
A lot of fun, but i just couldn't get over throwing away Vanessa. Myers and Roach are clever; they should have come up w something better, kidnapping maybe.
Possibly the GOAT.
Unbelievably strong film.
The closest we've ever come as a species to making a feature-length Super Bowl commercial.
It got enough laughs out of me for it to not be a complete waste but you can already feel franchise fatigue in this second installment. I'm also ashamed to admit that I found Fat Bastard funny as a kid because he's offensively dated and horribly disgusting but he does have one funny monologue towards the end about why he eats that I'll always love... You know the one I'm talking about...
Watching the first one so close to the second is a great way to see the slight quality difference. My main issue is that, overall, I think the first one is simply a better quality story. There are no dips in enjoyment at all. However, this one does have higher joke peaks. It's just that those tall peaks are next to some valleys that aren't as great. Still, quite a hilarious and fun time baby.

The Austin Powers franchise just doesn't hit my sense of humour. Sure, younger me adored these films, but for some reason, they just don't cut it anymore. However, the execution is brilliant, and if it hits your humour, it's probably very good.
An enjoyable return to the world of Austin Powers with plenty of amusing new gags and new characters in Mini-Me and Fat Bastard. The narrative is a convoluted mess with its amount of time traveling, and the idea of Powers losing his mojo is kind of wasted among the plethora of other gags, but it's still a fun ride. Having Dr Evil evolve as a villain who breaks into hip-hop was pure genius.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
