...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.

Full of sex and bathroom humor. Not for kids.

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

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

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

...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.

Too much of the new Powers looks like bad TV and sounds like old burlesque!

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.

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.
