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.

There is just enough joy in The Spy Who Shagged Me to make you wish there had been more of it.

Shagged serves up at least 25 guffaws and a lot more mojo than most comedies!

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.

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!

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.
