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.
More polished and almost as much fun as its predecessor, Jay Roach's "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" is a rare effective comedy sequel. Featuring an inspired Mike Meyers as the swinging super spy, the sequel to "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" is a hilarious, smart, and over-the-top tribute to spy films, the late 1960s, and oversexed English heroes.
Following Powers' pursuit of the villainous Dr. Evil from the 1990s back to the 1960s, the sequel revolves around its protagonist's quest to win back his mojo. Reverently sending-up tropes from the James Bond franchise and late '60s British comedies, the story introduces memorable allies and enemies as Powers attempts to put a stop to Evil's plot.
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…

Best comedy sequel ever!

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.
A film trilogy that will forever be in my list of films that i'm happy to watch multiple times as they just never get old. Heather Graham always looks like she's having the time of her life in this as well.
Just great fun that you can put on at any time and enjoy yourself.
I think this is my favourite of the Austin Powers movies. Heather Graham is adorable!
This has a lot of jokes that completely miss their mark, but the ones that hit are quite effective. So, it's uneven, but quite laugh out loud funny at times, which makes it acceptable.
heather had my whole heart for like 2 years after this. shit, she introduced me to paul...
'The Spy Who Shagged Me' is largely a pretty successful follow-up to the first film. The film is strengthened by a third performance by Mike Myers in the form of Fat Bastard, but I've always thought the film lost a bit with the addition of Mini-Me. He's not an interesting character and the dynamic between him and Dr. Evil isn't particularly effective. Many of the jokes, while still humorous, feel a bit recycled from the first film as well. I've also always been confused by Elizabeth Hurley's death at the beginning of the film... she's on screen before her face is torn off, revealing her as a Fem-Bot, for all of about ten seconds. And then her head explodes. Was…

Dr. Evil is back...and has invented a new time machine that allows him to go back to the 60's and steal Austin Powers's mojo, inadvertently leaving him "shagless".
Absolutely stupid, but still fucking hilarious. Not a patch on the first film but it's still a good comedy sequel.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
