Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: 2/4
Myers and Michael McCullers' script just doesn't have it in terms of fresh narrative developments or individual gags.
If you don't care for one gag, there'll be another one in a minute, just like a London double decker.
Amusing but ultimately disappointing.
There is just enough joy in The Spy Who Shagged Me to make you wish there had been more of it.
| Original Score: B
Absent are the freshness and spontaneity that characterized the original.
Shagged serves up at least 25 guffaws and a lot more mojo than most comedies!
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Actually more fitfully silly fun than the original!
There is a striking lack of craft in The Spy Who Shagged Me.
Too many scenes end on a flat note!
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The sequel is funnier than the original because it has more silliness, more smut and more 'yeah, babies.'
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.
Despite an oversupply of bathroom jokes and scattered scenes that play like outtakes, this is still a crafty, intermittently hilarious comedy.
| Original Score: 3/5
If anyone can give Star Wars a run for its money this summer, it's the horny hero of this very funny comedy.
A large portion of the audience fall-down, roll across the rug, honk till they hurt hilarious.
Too much of the new Powers looks like bad TV and sounds like old burlesque!
A funnier, tighter film than its predecessor!
Given the choice between a movie that's better structured and only half as funny, I'd take The Spy Who Shagged Me any day.
The picture strives for comic points mostly with that excruciatingly gross potty humor and with industrial-strength sexual innuendo.
