austin powers

Saw the second Austin Powers movie with Helen, Jeff, Doug, and Craig a couple nights ago. Until recently, the worst 'big-budget' movie I had ever seen was "One On One", a movie I saw in the seventies which starred Robby Benson (remember him?). "The Spy Who Shagged Me", however, has now taken its place.

For the record, I -did- like the first movie quite a bit. The sequel, however, seems to have run out of ideas. It takes whatever was slightly funny in the first movie and bashes the viewer over the head with it (over and over and over again). I found the humor far cruder, more juvenile than the first movie. Ok, enough Austin-bashing.

The best part of the movie was sharing a freshly-baked cinnamon pretzel from the concession stand with Jeff. :-)
