Generally, sequels tend to be quite awful. A shadow of the movie they're following, it's generally just to make audiences go "Oooh, there's that character again! And look, he's doing that thing he did in the last movie!" and then move on.
This isn't the case with this movie at all.
Of course, Austin Powers has never been a deep movie, but it is, however, a hilarious one. And the sequel is no different.
At no point does the plot feel forced, it's just as effortlessly funny as the first. At times even funnier, with the introduction of two side characters that are probably the best of the series (Mini-Me and Fat Bastard), and another adventure that doesn't at all feel like a tired rehash of the first movie.
I generally prefer movies with deep, meaningful plots, but I love Austin Powers because it never fails to make me laugh. While most of the humor is crude, it never feels stupid.

"The rating of PG-13 is almost an under-rate! The content in this movie is quite adult oriented, but yet a great laugh. Even though there are many spin-off's of the first movie (ex. shh and zip it), this movie gets better the more you watch it. You can't just watch it once because I too didn't like it at first, but the more you watch the more you pick up the humor! VERY entertaining! Buy this movie!"

"For those of you who thought another Austin Powers movie would become nothing more than a forgotten sequel, I have two words for you: Fat Bastard. The Introduction of another character played by Mike Myers only makes this sequel better. You must remember that Jay Roach and company are working with whatever they please; as long as Mike Myers goes along with it. And as long as Mike likes it, it'll be good.In this laughable comedy, we are introduced to more new and great characters such as: Mini-me (played by Verne Troyer), Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham), and a younger version of Number 2 played by Rob Lowe. There are so many laughs in the movie I don't even know where to begin. How about Mustafa's reappearance or maybe Fat Bastard trying to eat Mini-me. They just never stop. Again, we have a similar storyline along with a similar ending: 30...29...28... you get the idea. I have a feeling that Mike's not done quite yet in producing laughs. I'm really looking forward to Austin Powers 3. It'll be smashing, baby!Anyway, that's enough of that. If you liked the first Austin Powers movie you'll definitly like this one. Heck, you might even enjoy it more. Otherwise, if you didn't like the first movie you won't like this one either. Give it a shot, it's worth it.One more thing, make sure you watch to the very very end of the credits to find out what actually happens to Mustafa. It's too good to miss."

"Tons of extras...deleted scenes, a feature length commentary, interviews, music videos, lots of entertaining stuff. I was surprised they were able to put the whole thing on one side of a DVD.As for the movie itself, Dr. Evil's disfunctional relationship with his son Scott is hilarious. Mini Me...Rob Lowe as a young Number 2... Frau...the whole Jerry Springer scene was great. As for the time travel inaccuracies, well...duh. I mean, we're not talking 2001:A Space Odyssey here. It's a frickin' comedy. It's about having FUN, being SILLY.My advice: If you're too uptight to just enjoy this movie, if you absolutely MUST analyze every scene, then go rent "Contact" and leave the rest of us alone."
