This movie was much like its predecessor. In fact, most of the good jokes had already been done in the first, or were then taken to lengthy extreme. There was some good stuff in it, but only in a about a third of the movie.
In addition, the film was completely ruined for me by one, ongoing, offensive fat joke. Austin Powers II, The Spy That Knows Just How Disgusting And Unhappy All Fat People Really Are. I take it that Mike Myers never really liked his SNL co-worker, Chris Farley. Featured is a fake fat Irish man who is portrayed as completely disgusting in every way, and all through the film. If you are offended by fat jokes, you may wish to avoid this sequel like the plague. (The dwarf humor was grand in comparison.)
