Austin Powers: the Spy Who Shagged Me

release year: 1999
genre: comedy
viewing setting: theater, 6/26/99
what I expected: more 60s lunacy
what I got: fairly funny movie, not quite up to par with the first one

synopsis: Austin Powers must foil another evil plot by the aptly-named Dr. Evil and his cronies.

impressions: It made me laugh - in particular, watch for any part where you see a dual-celled rocket taking off or flying. The plot (such as it was) was a bit lamer than the original's plot, which bothered me.

acting: Mike Myers has found his niche in the acting world. Heather Graham was simply luscious to watch.

final word: Funny and entertaining.

rating: C
