Despite some genuinely inspired skits, Austin Powers 2 is the most non-groovy, lame brained piece of garbage I have seen all year.WARNING: SPOILER!
Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me is a series of skits clumsily slapped together with extremely mixed results.
There you go. That’s about all I could possibly ruin for you. There are no clever plot twists. Not one scene is remotely unpredictable. Not one gag wasn't painfully telegraphed way ahead of time.
If one thing can be said about this movie, it is thorough. Every disgusting bodily function you can imagine is lampooned. Every funny bit in the first movie is rehashed and amplified to vomit-inducing proportions. It is almost unbearable.
Dr.Evil (Mike Myers) is still a great character and he steals the show early in the movie. The dysfunctional relationship between Dr.Evil and his son is often hilarious. But the Austin Powers character (Mike Myers again) is irritating as hell. There were several moments in this movie when I felt like "shagging" a brick into the back of his groovy fucking head.
The plot involves Dr.Evil going back into time to steal Austin's "Mojo". The way this is set up is absolutely absurd and massive plot holes abound. But they try to glaze over this fact by pointing out the plot flaws for comedic effect...
Sorry, but that doesn't get it.
The worst thing in the movie is Myer's third Character: Fat Bastard. If Mike Myers aspires to pull off multi-roles as good as Peter Sellers did, he has a L-O-N-G way to go. I had heard this character was irritating as hell but that did nothing to prepare me for what I saw. He is the most annoying abomination I have seen in a movie since Jar Jar Binks. Actually, Jar Jar would have been a breath of fresh air compared to Fat Bastard.
I had to go outside to smoke a cigarette and get the fuck away from this movie 10 minutes before it ended, so I can't really give you my reflections on the conclusion. But I did catch the credits and they include some extra scenes, so if you actually enjoy this crap make sure to stick around.I would only give the first Austin Powers flick three stars so take that into account when reading this review. If the first one mesmerized you, you may find something to enjoy in the second. As for me, I'd rather have my balls waxed than watch this movie again. 'nuff said.
