In the Seattle headquarters, there is a picture of a shark with a frickin' laser beam on its head. Look for it at the shot of Number 2 by the condiments table with the Starbucks employee to the left side of the screen. See more »

Buy the first one and watch it repeatedly; skip the sequel.
I had high hopes going into this one, I admit. I love the first one (though after the first 5 minutes of "Spy Who Shagged Me," that was dimmed significantly, too; you'll know why when you see the scene with Vanessa). Other than a couple of inspired bits by Dr. Evil (and the fact that Heather Graham approached goddess status as Felicity Shagwell), this film was a rehash of its far superior predecessor. There were no truly new gags or fun introduced, here, and the bathroom humor belonged more in a "Beavis & Butthead" cartoon than in an Austin Powers film. Mike Myers and the rest of the cast seemed lost in a meandering plotline that went nowhere fast. As inspired as Myers was in the first "Austin Powers," he was uninspired in this one. The potential was there for this to be one of THE defining movies of the year, but instead it fails to live up to expectations and even significantly cheapens the original, a feat which I've never before seen a film do. Save your money and either buy or rent the original; it's infinitely superior to the sequel.
