Full of sex and bathroom humor. Not for kids.

...doesn't so much try to send up other spy films as it tries to one-up its own predecessor in this second go-round.

It's gone from being a hip little party to being a big bash where the stars turn out.

...the people who seemed to be having the most fun at a recent screening were the 14-year-old boys giggling over the libidinous bits and the bathroom jokes.

By the end, Spy recycles its own gags, not just ones from the first movie.

In ways better than the original, 'The Spy Who Shagged Me' is a rehash of the same story with new cast members and new takes on familiar jokes.

Something of mixed reaction, a movie in which Myers remains an influencing screen presence, but the script doesn't do him justice.

Packed with gags - some clever, many lame and almost all puerile - the film has too many dead spots between the laughs, and I caught myself checking my watch almost as often as I chuckled.

Much of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me feels recycled, but audiences who dote on multiple viewings aren't likely to complain.

What defeats Austin and Dr. Evil in the new movie is what brought them down the last time: Myers' inability to know what jokes need to be taken further, and what jokes should be cut short.

When a satirical comedy loses its sense of discovery, there's not much reason for it to exist.

The script is not up to the acting ability of Mike Myers.

Most of this freakishly dull mess fails to even raise a chuckle!

After seeing his second adventure, you have to wonder how many times the same jokes can be played out before they start to overstay their welcome.

Scatological doesn't even begin to describe it. Heather Graham is crap too.

Another scattershot adventure with a few good chuckles but not quite as funny as it believes it is--or should be.
