Your Funny Playing Shrek Mike Myers But your too over the top on this! Why This piece of pirate crap? There is also a character also played by Myers Named Fat Bastard! I Rather Be A Fat Bastard Than Watch This Movie Again!
Austin Powers 2 is a boring, unfunny, cliched movie that won't keep the spectator interested and that won't please that persons who are expecting to see goofy gags, because we can't consider something as a gag if it isn't funny.
Overall, it's probably the funniest of the trilogy, but lacks the narrative cohesion and sharper satirical edge of the first, and the Michael Caine-ness of the third. Mini Me is a work of twisted genius, Felicity is pretty damn shagadelic, and Fat Bastard is...there because comedy fat suits were all the rage back then?
I admit it, I love these movies. I've seen all 3 several times, and love 'em all. This one has the introduction of "Mini-me" and "Fat Bastard", and also the lovely Heather Graham, as well as Lenny Kravitz's cover of "American Woman". I laughed out loud again even though I know the film so well. Recommended for a silly laugh.
Like so many sequels, this tries to match the original, and doesn't quite do it. But it's still funny and definitely watchable. Unfortunately, with the introduction of the super-UNfunny Fat Bastard character, as well as the childish toilet humor, this sequel dropped a few notches from the original.
I can't stand this sequel, it just trumps anything remotely intelligent from the first film. The only reason I give it two stars is because of Mini Me which is admittedly a fantastic cult character. Otherwise, just ugh.
