I watched this movie with my mouth hanging open in astonishment much of the time. This was the most mindless piece of entertainment I've had the experience to be in the same room with for a LONG time. I cannot recall a sillier movie. I will allow that there were some cute moments, but I found very little to be clever at all. Seth Green is always a cutie, even when he's being a brat and I personally found him to be the single redeeming facet of the movie and that is based primarily on the fact that I like the ACTOR.
I believe that a lot of money was spent on this production. I feel certain that the writers were probably paid a lot to come up with some terribly silly drivel. I understand that this movie made a good bit of money. I'm grateful that none of that money was mine. Sadly, my son brought it into the house--purchased with a Christmas gift certificate.
I really think this film is the most incredible waste of time. If the viewer is fond of ridiculous, cliche, mindless entertainment then it is a great value for the time invested. If the viewer appreciates intelligence, wit and that which is truly clever, then a walk around the block is much more suitable. I will have to be tied down and half-comatose to sit through this film again.
In his second screen adventure, groovy superspy Austin Powers (Mike Myers) returns to 1969, where one after another hilarious gag is worked into a silly, stumbling, knee-slapping plot. This time around, Austin Powers' arch-nemesis Dr. Evil (also Myers) is joined by a midget-sized clone of himself, Mini-Me (Verne Troyer). Having successfully stolen Austin's "mojo" (his libido), Dr. Evil can concentrate on his ultimate mission of destroying the world. Meanwhile, Austin, with the help of gorgeous agent Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham), must now not only contend with Dr. Evil, but also the small but vicious Mini-Me. Also in this installment, Evil's son, Scott (Seth Green), finds out who his mother is, and Mike Myers stars as a third character--rotund and truly disgusting Scotsman Fat Bastard. More raucous fun in the spirit of its 1997 smash predecessor, AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME once again thrills audiences with its inexhaustible humor.
