Our Score
If you liked the International Man of Mystery's first adventure, then you'll love this shagadelic sequel, in which Austin Powers (Mike Myers) goes back to the 1960s to reclaim his "mojo", which has been stolen by his adversary Dr Evil (also played by Myers). While the star and his returning director, Jay Roach, revisit the same free-for-all secret-agent spoofing of the original, they do it with just the right degree of retro style, knowing geniality and complete lack of taste and restraint. Heather Graham is an adequate replacement for Elizabeth Hurley as Powers's mini-skirted sidekick, and the result is a lava-lamp lampoon as stupid and (for Powers fans) as sophisticated as the first psychedelic excursion.

Summary

The sex-mad spy is sent back to swinging London at the height of the 1960s in pursuit of the dastardly Dr Evil, who has stolen the secret agent's `mojo'. Teaming up with a female American agent, Austin must stop his arch-rival from causing havoc with a doomsday weapon on the moon. Comedy sequel, starring Mike Myers in multiple roles alongside Heather Graham, Rob Lowe, Robert Wagner, Michael York, Seth Green and Verne Troyer.
