Dr. Evil uses a device he calls a "Time Machine" to travel back to 1969 and remove Austin Powers' mojo. The sexually wounded swinger must travel back in time and, with the help of agent Felicity Shagwell, recover his vitality.

The remote control device responding to the homing beacon on Fat Bastard shows a tube map with the (pink) Hammersmith & City line showing, except that the line was considered part of the (red/purple) Metropolitan line until the late 1980s. The map we see is supposedly in 1969, and thus the tube map would have looked very different. See more »

Austin Powers 2 was an insult to my intelligence, though I did shell out the five bucks without anyone forcing me to do so. The movie had all of the same jokes from the first film without any of the wit, and Mike Myers somehow managed to run(well, hammer) the already tired bits of AP1 even farther into the ground. He also managed to over-saturate the film with sub-juvenile bathroom humor--an extremely overweight character's bowel movement simply isn't funny.
Though the first movie had its moments, the sequel came across like a joke that wasn't terribly funny the first time you heard it, only you've heard it 15 times since and this time it comes from someone who doesn't know how to tell it. Unfortunately, I fear we'll be given a third installment in which the same old gags don't work yet again.
Give us a break, Mike. Write something creative.
