Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

There are two kinds of reviews that I hate to. ..er. ..review. #1)The "Oh-my-God-this-freaking-movie-is terrible" review, because I hate writing bad reviews. So, when a really bad one comes my way, I just TRY to ignore it and just kind of hope that it goes away. And the second kind of review. # 2) is the "EVERYBODY-loves-this-movie" ( because it’s a classic, and it’s been reviewed about a kazillion times. Millions of fans (like myself) have watched the Austin Powers’ series over and over again because of the comedic super powers (no pun intended) that Mike Myers has, so it’s kind of futile to write a review for this, or the other International Man Of Mystery movies. This movie has probably been reviewed more times than Obama’s birth certificate! Well I am going to go ahead and throw my review in there (a small drop in a huge ocean) because I feel I owe it to Mr. Myers. He has brought us, side splitting, choke on your popcorn, blow slushies out of your nose, and laughing until the screen is a blur because your eyes are filled with tears. –FUNNY! And that panicky feeling you start to get when you are about to suffocate because you can’t stop laughing long enough to gasp for a breath of air!?!? Huh!?!? Yeah, you know that type of funny. Well, Mike Myers will (as Austin Powers, or Fat Bastard, or, of course, DR. EVIL) always be (to me) one of the funniest persons ever borne. That guy (Myers) just KILLS me. Literally. Almost. Check it out!

Product Description Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (DVD)In the biggest Austin Powers adventure yet, the International Man of Mystery must travel back to the Swinging Sixties, track down his stolen mojo and thwart Dr. Evil’s plot to destroy the world. Of course, along the way, Austin meets his match in CIA operative Felicity Shagwell, a fab chick, hot spy and fantastic motivation for restoring his libido. “I put the grrr in swinger, baby!” a deliciously randy Austin Powers coos near the beginning of The Spy Who Shagged Me, and if the imagination of Austin creator Mike Myers seems to have sagged a bit, his energy surely hasn’t. This friendly, go-for-broke sequel to 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery finds our man Austin heading back to the ’60s to keep perennial nemesis Dr. Evil (Myers again) from blowing up the world–and, more importantly, to get back his mojo, that man-juice that turns Austin into irresistible catnip for women, especially American spygirl Felicity Shagwell (a pretty but vacant Heather Graham). The plot may be irreverent and illogical, the jokes may be bad (with characters named Ivana Humpalot and Robin Swallows, née Spitz), and the scenes may run on too long, but it’s all delivered sunnily and with tongue firmly in cheek. Myers’s true triumph, though, is his turn as the neurotic Dr. Evil, who tends to spout the right cultural reference at exactly the wrong time (referring to his moon base as a “Death Star” with Moon Units Alpha and Zappa–in 1969). Myers teams Dr. Evil with a diminutive clone, Mini-Me (Verne J. Troyer), who soon replaces slacker son Scott Evil (Seth Green) as the apple of the doctor’s eye; Myers and Troyer work magic in what could plausibly be one of the year’s most affecting (and hysterically funny) love stories. Despite a stellar supporting cast–including a sly Rob Lowe as Robert Wagner’s younger self and Mindy Sterling as the forbidding Frau Farbissina–it’s basically Myers’s show, and he pulls a hat trick by playing a third character, the obese and disgusting Scottish assassin Fat Bastard. Many viewers will reel in disgust at Mr. Bastard’s repulsive antics and the scatological bent Myers indulges in, including one showstopper involving coffee and–shudder–a stool sample. Still, Myers’s good humor and dead-on cultural references win the day; Austin is one spy who proves he can still shag like a minx. –Mark Englehart

 

 

 

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me Review

 

The original Austin Powers came out as a real farcical, but hilarious piece of late 90’s comedy. In a time where a lot of comedians were playing this types of outlandish characters, Mike Myers stood out as being just a bit better. Now the sequel, since it does not have the fish out of water trappings of the first film, instead cranks up the absurdity of everything. And for the most part, I think it works. Tough I do miss the more awkward tone of the first film. This one is pretty much pure cheeseball in it’s execution. It does have some good characters. Basically the entire cast brings their energy to the characters. Mike Myers himself plays several, and I will say he does enough to really make it seem like he’s playing actual different characters that he makes uniquely his own. He doesn’t just bloat his own cast credits for the sake of it. And yeah, it’s a dumb comedy, but an enjoyable one. It’s certainly worth watching, or in my case, revisiting after nearly 12 years. And it still holds up. -Read Reviews-

Mike Myers is in fine form here as the lovable Austin Powers, who goes about solving mysterious and scoring with hot chicks, who now doubt loved getting shagged. He also plays several other different characters and emotes so many different styles of comedy acting. It’s basically a text book of someone exercising their craft. Loved this movie and all the hot babes.
