[edit]

Synopsis: Dr. Evil is back...and has invented a new time machine that allows him to go back to the 60's and steal Austin Powers's mojo, leaving him "shagless".


Reaction: Still funny, and the addition of Mini Me is extremely original, but this one seems to get a bit more crass than the last one.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Both Rob Lowe (Young Number Two) and Michael McDonald (NATO Soldier) appeared uncredited in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery as different characters from this movie. Lowe appeared in an additional scene about friends learning of a henchman's death. A similar scene showed McDonald's family being informed of his death.
  • An early trailer for this film was unusual in that it referred to another film scheduled for release in the summer of 1999. It included the voiceover "If you only see one movie this summer, see Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. But if you see two movies, see Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me."
  • When the movie was released in South Korea in 1999, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery had never been shown in theaters and was only available in illegal videotapes under the title Incorrigible 007. In order to explain the characters and setting to the audience, the distributor attached Madonna's music video for {Beautiful Stranger} in front of the theatrical print, and summarized the plot of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery in on-screen subtitles during the music video. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery was later released in Korean theaters for the first time in 2000 under the title Austin Powers Zero.
  • The actor who is ran over by the steam roller in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is also the NATO monitoring technician in the beginning of the sequel.
  • Rob Lowe's impression of Robert Wagner was actually developed years before its appearance in the film. Lowe dated one of Wagner's daughters.
  • When Austin returns to 1969, his teeth return to their old yellow selves, although he had them cleaned in "the present."
  • This movie made more money in its opening weekend than the original (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery) made in it's entire theatrical run.
  • It took seven hours for Mike Myers to get into the Fat Bastard suit.
  • In the original script, the title reads "Austin Powers 2: The Wrath of Khan" (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan). The narrator then talks about this title and eventually says that due to a lawsuit, the movie will be renamed to "Austinpussy" (Octopussy). The narrator then says that the title needs to be changed again in order to obtain a PG-13. The title "The Spy Who Shagged Me" is then displayed.
  • A scene was cut involving a character named Sullivan. Sullivan was another Mike Myers reference to the Toronto Maple Leafs (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery). The scene was cut when the actor left to work on another project.
  • Although the word "shag" is less offensive in the U.S. than most other countries, not all translated the title into something less raunchy. The Norwegian title of the movie is "Spionen som spermet meg", which is a slightly dirtier way of saying "The spy who ejaculated on me". Meanwhile, Singapore briefly forced a title change to "The Spy Who Shioked Me" ("Shioked" means "treated nicely").
  • When Dr. Evil throws the 'Mojo' in the air and both Austin Powers run towards it, all voices are done in slow-motion and the voice of Felicity is spoken by Will Ferrell, shouting Watch Out before both Austin's bump into each other.
