Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
When diabolical genius Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) travels back in time to steal superspy Austin Powers's "mojo," Austin (also Myers) must return to the swingin' '60s himself -- with the help of American agent Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham) -- to stop the dastardly plan. Once there, Austin faces off against Dr. Evil's army of minions and saves the world in his own unbelievably groovy way. Verne Troyer co-stars as Dr. Evil's clone, Mini-Me.

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged MeClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that it is very, very, very raunchy, with incessant and prolonged sexual humor. Because it is a comedy, the rating system gives it a PG-13, but the material would clearly get an R if it appeared in a drama. Do not kid yourself that some of these jokes are "over their heads." Those kids who do not see it -- or who do see it and miss some of the jokes -- will hear detailed explanations from those who do of references like Powers asking one woman "Which is it, spits or swallows?" and pretty much every woman "Do I make you horny?" In addition, the movie features character names Felicity Shagwell and Ivana Humpalot, a rocket shaped like a penis (described by a series of characters with every imaginable euphemism), references to a one-night stand "getting weird," an extended sequence in which it appears that a number of objects are removed from Powers' rectum, and Powers' inability to perform in bed due to his missing "mojo." There is also a good deal of potty humor, including Powers mistaking a stool sample for coffee.
