    Thanks to a cameo by Rebecca Romijn (as herself), Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me is the only film in the trilogy to have a Number One as well as a Number Two. Of course, number twos are one of the problems with this otherwise fairly strong sequel. Yes, I'm talking about Fat Bastard, a totally repugnant character that's only there to indulge in scatological comedy for the lowest common denominator, pushing the franchise further into boring bodily fluids jokes. There are a lot of repeated gags from the first film, but at least, new material as well. Losing Elizabeth Hurley the way we do undermines the first film a bit, but since nothing is to be taken seriously in these things, we can at least enjoy Heather Graham in the similar role. We get straight up time travel, so the 60s put in an even greater appearance than in the first film. Rob Lowe does an amazing Robert Wagner impression as the younger Number Two. Mini-Me is an iconic feature of the series. The moonbase evokes Doctor Who's The Moonbase, which aired in 1967, when the characters were frozen, so it perhaps IS a fair inspiration. But boy, do I hate Fat Bastard (and generally, this whole subgenre of fat suit comedy). Too many variations on the same themes, perhaps, but Austin Powers still has his mojo at this point. 3 months 1 week ago

    Kind of all over the place and less focused than the original. Still, it's obvious that everyone involved had fun. 5 years 9 months ago

    The story was worse, but the (bad-guy) jokes better than the original 13 years 2 months ago
