    Places Myers firmly on the top rung of movie comics. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    There is enough mirthful good will generated to justify even another sequel. May we suggest: "License to Shag," "You Only Shag Twice" or "Thundershag." show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    Turns out to be less than the sum of its wonderfully silly and bizarre parts. show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Examiner

    A collection of arbitrary sketches, bits and improvs jammed into a locker room-style variety show masquerading as some semblance of a narrative. show more

    Give your brain the night off, and Myers will make you smile too. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    There is an underlying likability to Austin Powers that sort of carries us through the movie. show more

    For my taste, too much of the new Powers looks like bad TV and sounds like old burlesque. show more

    New York Post

    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. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The satire is crammed with sexual and scatological humor; some may find this Rabelaisian and refreshing, while others will detect the end of civilization as we know it. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Too much of what The Spy Who Shagged Me has to offer is tired and derivative, and, when the various jokes and gags are tallied, there are many more misses than hits. show more

    Austin powers could have Ian Fleming laughing at his own creation. Myers is nothing short of hysterical in all of his Austin Powers movies.
