Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Austin Powers -- fashion photographer, denizen of Swingin' London, international espionage agent, and bane of dental hygienists everywhere -- returns in his second screen adventure. Powers (once again played by Mike Myers), a 1960s superspy stranded in the 1990s, discovers that his nemesis, criminal genius Dr. Evil (also Mike Myers), has somehow stolen his "mojo" (the secret to his otherwise inexplicable sex appeal) and traveled back in time to the 1960s as part of his latest fiendish scheme.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Too much of the new Powers looks like bad TV and sounds like old burlesque!"
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Full of sex and bathroom humor. Not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...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."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Something of mixed reaction, a movie in which Myers remains an influencing screen presence, but the script doesn't do him justice."
‑ David Keyes,
"Where's Wayne's World when you need it?"
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Too many scenes end on a flat note!"
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...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."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"By the end, Spy recycles its own gags, not just ones from the first movie."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Packed with gags - some clever, many lame and almost all puerile - the film has too many dead spots between the laughs, and I caught myself checking my watch almost as often as I chuckled."
‑ Edward Johnson-Ott, NUVO Newsweekly
"Recycled ideas and a weaker plot"
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"The picture strives for comic points mostly with that excruciatingly gross potty humor and with industrial-strength sexual innuendo."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"It's gone from being a hip little party to being a big bash where the stars turn out."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"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."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Much of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me feels recycled, but audiences who dote on multiple viewings aren't likely to complain."
‑ Kevin Lally, Film Journal International
"When a satirical comedy loses its sense of discovery, there's not much reason for it to exist."
‑ Scott Renshaw, Scott Renshaw's Screening Room
