Storyline

A Chinese diplomat is kidnapped from a conference in Genève and the world peace is at risk. The trail leads to a hiding place in Denmark and the Danish secret service brings in their best agent, agent Smith (Ove Sprogøe), who has been in a psychiatric hospital since his last assignment. To accompany Smith they once again turn to novelty and party tricks salesman Frede Hansen (Morten Grunwald), because they need an unrecognizable man to infiltrate the crime syndicate behind the kidnapping. The syndicate is lead by the mysterious Presto and the only lead is that ''it always involves women''. Beautiful women. Soon Frede is chased around the country by Italian mobsters with Smith trying to keep up. Finally they end up at the syndicate's headquarters; a hotel on top of an old German WWII bunker complex at the Danish west coast, where our heroes fight of gangsters, bikini babes and Presto's trigger happy Mama to uncover the big plot.

"Mama, *please*!"
7 October 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Reuniting the team behind the first, this can't get entirely away from being a sequel to it... which, in itself isn't a bad thing; however, with the occasional reused joke, the going over the top to meet the heightened expectations and the fact that this just doesn't quite have the impact of the original simply prove that this concept should not have been a series. There's not enough substance to carry more than one movie(unlike The Olsen Gang series, and it should be noted that it started after these two came out, and that it wasn't until the fifth entry that they had perfected the formula of the franchise, and took a step up from the typical farces in Denmark of the time). Each of the three Austin Powers flicks had something new to add, an approach that differed at least slightly from those before it. With that said, this does have many hilarious moments. Dirch Passer, one of our greatest comic talents of the era, gets a part tailor-made for his talents. The characters are thin and a tad one-note this time around, as so often happens with follow-ups to goofy features. Sprogøe hasn't lost the touch in the least. Grunwald is charming and daft(sans being annoying). Mørk is a good addition, if perhaps inferior to Kolick and Dr. Pax, and less memorable. They think of new gags and jokes so the old ones(at risk of growing stale) aren't all we're served, and the Italian and Chinese stereotypes here are pretty funny, without being excessively offensive. The camera continues to communicate fairly well, if there are points in this where it comes up short. There is rather a lot of inventive setups, and the amounts of creative gadgets, chases, fights and explosions are sufficient. The pacing is arguably uneven, and some cuts rip you out of the scene, ending too swiftly. This doesn't seem to excite the way "Slå Først, Frede" did, and while that one had relatively little in the way of a sense of danger, this has less still. The plot is competently written, and there is genuinely marvelous stuff in this. This has eye candy, though briefer nudity. Violence is mild and non-threatening. The DVD comes with a bunch of trailers for other Nordisk Film releases of the period, biographies and a photo gallery of twenty stills. I recommend this to big fans of spy spoofs, and/or those involved in making it. 6/10
