Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me


When Mike Myers original Austin Powers film became a big hit, he followed up with an even better sequel, AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME.

Hilarious from start to finish, its IMHO the best of the Powers trilogy.

Dr Evil (Myers again riffing on Blofeld with a Lorne Michaels impression) creates a time machine that allows him to go back to the early 60's and steal Powers mojo, effectively shearing Sampson's hair and all his magic spy powers.

It's a great set up that Myers and his big cast of regulars milk for all its worth.

Myers adds Fat Bastard to his lineup, with a hilarious Scotch accent and the foulest hygiene in spy history for his rotund bad guy.

Heather Graham is fun as Felicity Shagwell, Michael York is great as Basil Exposition and we add Verne Troyer as Mini Me and Rob Lowe as the younger version of Robert Wagner's Number Two, all with tons of laughs.

Some favorite moments that are often quoted in our house:

________________


Number Two: Why not use your knowledge of the future to play the stock markets? We could make trillions.


Dr. Evil: Why make a trillion when we could make... billions?


Scott: A trillion's more than a billion, numbnuts.

Scott: 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?


Dr. Evil: How about, no, Scott? Okay?

Dr. Evil: Ow! You shot me, you A-Hole.

Austin: Cor! This coffee smells like shit!


Basil: It is shit, Austin.


Austin: Oh, good. Then it's not just me.

Austin: [Smacks lips] It's a bit nutty.

I could watch this thing every three months and it makes me laugh just as hard every time. Great cast, clever funny dialogue and plenty of OO7 allusions to balance some tribute along with the hilarity.

Myers has never been better than he is here. Let's hope he soon gets that long anticipated 4th Powers movie off the ground!

THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME gets a fall-over-laughing A+.

Followed in 2002 by Austin Powers: Goldmember.
