WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Austin Powers (Myers) returns in The Spy Who Shagged Me with a groovy new story and a shagadelic new bird, the vivacious Felicity (Graham). This time, diabolical genius Dr. Evil (Myers) travels back in time to 1969 and steals Austinís mojo. Includes audio commentary, 18 deleted scenes and a montage of never-before-seen footage.
