Consensus: Provides lots of laughs with Myers at the healm; as funny or funnier than the original.

Michael Wilmington
Chicago Tribune

Too much of the new Powers looks like bad TV and sounds like old burlesque!

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Full of sex and bathroom humor. Not for kids.

...the people who seemed to be having the most fun at a recent screening were the 14-year-old boys giggling over the libidinous bits and the bathroom jokes.

Too many scenes end on a flat note!

...doesn't so much try to send up other spy films as it tries to one-up its own predecessor in this second go-round.

By the end, Spy recycles its own gags, not just ones from the first movie.

Susan Stark

It's gone from being a hip little party to being a big bash where the stars turn out.

In ways better than the original, 'The Spy Who Shagged Me' is a rehash of the same story with new cast members and new takes on familiar jokes.

The original is always the best, of course, but this movie has all the characters from the first, continues the story in an hilarious way, adds new characters,… More

A much funnier and livelier sequel to a comedy with not a whole lot to offer. The Spy Who Shagged Me is a definite upgrade! I laughed quite hard even though… More

This breakthrough for Mike Myers is almost impossible to resist. Like its predecessor, this sequel is trashy and juvenille but it's also aware of what it… More
