    For long stretches, the film is just as funny as the first -- which is saying something, since the first is one of the funniest comedies of the decade, the only film in years to truly infiltrate our communal language and sense of humor.

    The Spy Who Shagged Me is impossible-to-resist summer fun that left me feeling, dare I say, randy for more? Oh, behave.
  3. Places Myers firmly on the top rung of movie comics.

    It all gets repetitive, and after about the halfway point, you get the feeling that Myers and Co. don't know where to go next, and are making it up as they go along.

    Actually funnier than the first movie, but getting to those parts requires a little bit of patient mental fast-forwarding.
  6. At this point, the effect of Myers' one-man Sixties love-in already feels less shagadelic than just shagged out.

    Kills whatever charm the first movie had by recycling its few serviceable parts.

The jokes are not that funny, The plot was incredibly stupid, the acting is average at best. Its just one piece of trash after another. I was a fan of the first film but my god did this suck. Expand
