Austin Powers in The Spy Who Shagged Me
Review and overview

One of the funniest movies of the 1990's. Mike Myers stars as the three main characters Austin Powers, Dr Evil and Fat Bastard in the first sequel in the Austin Powers series. We think this is the best one of the (first?) three and withstands many repeated viewings.

This is the first in the series to introduce Mini-Me (Verne Troyer) a brilliant gimmick which adds a shed load of jokes and possibilities as he vies to out do Dr Evil's son, Scott, for Dr Evil's affection.

In this at times truly laugh out loud hilarious movie, Austin Powers goes back (again) to the 1960's to find his Mojo, stolen (by Fat Bastard working for Dr Evil) from Austin Power's cryogenically frozen body.

Dr Evil is undoubtedly the comic highlight of this movie complete now with evil sidekick Mini-Me. Fat Bastard is a parody of lippy Scots types. Austin Powers a James Bond spoof by an American who has observed well the idiosyncratic London-English language and mannerisms.

Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham), an American agent, provides the love interest.

We think this movie is a brilliant spoof of its target. It is shot entirely in Southern California - you can see the Hollywood hills in some of the outside 'London' scenes.

Buy the DVD and you'll watch it many times.
