Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999)

Jay Roach directs Mike Myers, Mike Myers and Heather Graham in this comedy sequel where the swinging Sixties super spy time travels back to his own era to recover his stolen mojo.

A spirited rerun of all the original’s hits. Dr Evil dominates… to the point where shagdelic Austin feels a little like a tired afterthought. The newer additions are either so end of the millennium centric as to be spoof worthy themselves or rather grating. Mini Me and Fat Bastard are overused, the latter proving to be a painfully unfunny and misjudged creation. The only real levelling up is Heather Graham has better comedy chops than Liz Hurley.
