Director: Jay Roach
Writer: Mike Myers, Michael McCullers
Producers: Mike Myers, Demi Moore, John Lyons, Jennifer Todd, Suzanne Todd
A couple of other things which didn't truly delight me were the Austin Powers dancing segues between scenes, which seem forced and self-indulgent, and the song and dance numbers in the film, which appeared to be nothing more than time-fillers. But on the whole, this movie is funny and will have you cracking up at Dr. Evil's father/son silly banter, Mini-me's fight with Austin, the multitude of sexual overtures delivered by Austin, and the overall enthusiasm of the entire ride down the 60s free-wheeling, all-loving shagfest. Folks who did not enjoy the first film, will undoubtedly scoff at this sequel, which plot-wise, does even less than its predecessor. But for all of you who enjoyed the first movie for what is was, a goofy, original, over-the-top spy parody, chances are that you will most certainly enjoy the bulk of this film, with its re-occurring characters (and jokes, at times), Myers' fantastic performance as Evil and Powers, its fun loving, self-deprecating attitude, and all the kitchy goodness that you could stuff inside of ninety minutes of groovy cinema. Now does that make you horny?
