Having your plans to take over the world thwarted can really
put a downer on your day and Dr Evil is having a really bad
day. But when he realises that he can travel back in time
and guarantee his plans for world domination succeed, the
super villain decides to do just that. And while he's at it
he can steal his nemesis's charisma and sex appeal (or Mojo)...
is very rare for the sequel of a spoof to have any real redeeming
qualities (we all remember the Police Academy and Naked Gun
movies). The decent material is used up in the first movie
and the sequels usually just spin out the same old tired jokes.
The Spy Who Shagged Me actually builds on the success
of the first movie. Ok, it's not as funny but there are some
wonderful moments. Dr Evil's miniature version of himself
(Mini-Me) is hysterically funny and the addition of another
Myers role in Fat-Bastard is pure genius.
Graham as the new 'Power girl' is possibly the only weak part
of the movie. The script is not in her favour and she never
gets to shine like Hurley.
expected, there is an impressive amount of additional material
on the DVD version. And if you are very lucky you might be
able to find the hidden Dr Evil extras which are tucked away
inside one of the animated menus.
you liked the first movie you'll love this.
