Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me review
Good enough sequel
I have to admit that I did laugh during this movie. It was a comedy, and it did have funny parts. Unfortunately, the funniest parts of the movie were given away by the various trailers and commercials. Even though the movie had its moments, I can't consider it a guilty pleasure.
This is more a big screen Saturday Night Live episode than a movie. It seems that a bunch of ideas that seemed funny were thrown together, with little or no thought going into connecting them into a cohesive story. And, like Saturday Night Live, you think you remember it being funny once, but can't really really remember when that was. The jokes and parodies come fast and furious, and they are sometimes funny, sometimes bizarre, and always crude. Is the movie bad? Well, no. Is it good? No. But regardless, it will make millions of dollars, and people will be happy. Isn't that the purpose of every movie?
