    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.

    For now, there are enough big laughs and women in tight clothing to make this one of the best comedy sequels in recent memory and a worthy candidate for the smart, no-brainer comedy of the summer.

    Give your brain the night off, and Myers will make you smile too.
  4. For my taste, too much of the new Powers looks like bad TV and sounds like old burlesque.

    If it all seems a bit dizzying, it is, but there's plenty to enjoy.
  6. The repulsive turn of events erased all my good memories of the first half, and makes the movie hard to recommend to a normal human being.

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

    Austin Powers 2 is as hilarious as the first and the new characters add to the comedy immensely.

    Austin Powers 2 is funnier than the first. The characters Fat Bastard, Minnie Me and Felicity Shagwell add hilarious humour to a movie that already has plenty of laughs. Meyers turned both movies into comedy classics and this movie is one of the funniest I've ever seen. Do yourself a favour, give yourself some amusement and watch this movie today.

    It proves how fast you can kill a series when the sequel is nothing compared to the first film. Its pretty trashy if you ask me. 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
