Movie Title/Year and Scene Descriptions

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999)

  • this was the second film in the Austin Powers franchise-trilogy, preceded by International Man of Mystery (1997) and followed by Goldmember (2002)
  • in the film's opening, a Star Wars-styled text scrolling recapped the previous film's plot; Austin Powers had been frozen in 1967 and defrosted in the 90s to successfully battle and banish his nemesis Dr. Evil (also Mike Myers); Austin was now free to be able to enjoy honeymoon time with his newlywed wife Vanessa (Elizabeth Hurley), in a continuation from the previous film

Star Wars-Styled Scrolling

Dr. Evil Ejected in Egg-Capsule Toward Earth

Dr. Evil's Appearance on The Jerry Springer Show with His Son Scott
  • a NASA spaceflight spotted Dr. Evil's Bob's Big Boy-shaped rocketship in orbit that ejected the super-villain in an egg-shaped cryogenic chamber toward Earth
  • in bed with Vanessa in a honeymoon hotel suite, Austin was clued in to the fact that she was an android Fembot (with "machine-gun jubblies") when she responded to the TV remote; she was a "kamikaze bride" on a suicide mission to kill Austin, that ended with her own triggered self-destruction
  • In Guam, an operator at the NATO Monitoring Facility watched The Jerry Springer Show, where "not evil enough" son Scott Evil (Seth Green) was reunited with his cryogenically-frozen and thawed father Dr. Evil ("Daddy's back") -- with plans for taking over the world; the show ended with a full-scale brawl
  • Dr. Evil's return to Earth was reported by British Intelligence agent Basil Exposition (Michael York) to British spy-agent Austin Powers back in London; Austin was busy during a photo-shoot in his own swinging London Shag Pad with seductive Russian model Ivana Humpalot (Kristen Johnston)
  • the villain Dr. Evil had set up his new headquarters in Seattle within the "Starbucks" Needle, where his Number Two agent (Robert Wagner) presented Evil with his perfect clone "except one-eighth your size" - dubbed Mini-Me (Verne Troyer)

Number Two Agent (Robert Wagner)

Mini-Me (Verne Troyer)

Young Number Two (Rob Lowe)
  • Evil announced his new "diabolical scheme" to thwart Austin Powers' "mojo, the libido, the life force, the essence, the right stuff"; a time-traveling device was developed to go back (with Mini-Me) to the year 1969 to steal Powers' "mojo"; once back in the late 1960s, Dr. Evil and Mini-Me met Number Two's younger counterpart (Rob Lowe), and then they proceeded to his new lair - a "hollowed-out volcano" (a Caribbean island with a single, Mount Rushmore-like rock carving of Evil)
  • meanwhile back in 1999, Austin Powers was being seduced during a game of chess (in a parody of The Thomas Crown Affair) by Ivana Humpalot who was wearing a black, skintight, semi-see-through body suit; she was revealed to be secretly worked as a hit-woman for Dr. Evil; however, she admitted that he was so sexy that she couldn't carry out Evil's orders to kill him
Sexy Chess Game: Ivana vs. Austin
  • on the private volcanic island lair in 1969, Dr. Evil admitted that he had an accomplice within the British Ministry of Defence (MOD) - obese "Scottish Guard" called Fat Bastard (also Myers) - who drilled into Austin's frozen body in a cryo chamber and extracted his mojo with a large hypodermic needle; at the moment of the extraction, Powers in 1999 was having sex with Ivana Humpalot, and suddenly exclaimed that he was impotent: "I've lost my mojo"
  • to reclaim his mojo, Austin had to be sent back to 1969 to retrieve (or "recharge") his mojo and defeat Dr. Evil; after arriving in his time-travel device (a psychedelic-painted VW convertible propelled in a parody of Back to the Future), he entered his Swinging 60s London Shag Pad where he found a disco party was in progress; CIA secret agent accomplice Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham) saved Powers from being assassinated by two of Evil's agents; shortly later, at the MOD Cryo Chamber, Fat Bastard was identified by Austin as the suspected mojo thief

Felicity with Homing Device

To Be Implanted Inside Fat Bastard
  • Felicity Shagwell was instructed by Basil to track down Fat Bastard and plant a homing device on him "by any means necessary"; her implantation of the device in his butthole failed, although lab tests of Fat Bastard's stool sample identified the location of Dr. Evil's lair - a Caribbean island
  • Dr. Evil announced phase two of his latest plan - to put a giant laser on the Moon (creating a "Death Star") that would threaten to destroy major US cities each hour, unless he was paid a ransom of $100 billion dollars
  • Powers and Felicity traveled to Evil's private volcano island in a submarine, where they were briefly apprehended and detained until Felicity briefly exposed her breasts to distract a guard and they escaped
  • Dr. Evil and Mini-Me were launched to the Moon in a phallic-shaped rocket from the private volcanic island, to install the giant laser at his Moon Base; as Dr. Evil's rocket moved across the sky, a clever 'phallic wordplay' conversational montage kept cutting back and forth, offering lots of synonyms for male genitals:

    - Radar Operator Johnson: Colonel, you'd better take a look at this radar.
    - Colonel: What is it, son?
    - Radar Operator Johnson: I don't know, sir, but it looks like a giant...
    - Jet Pilot: Dick.
    - Co-Pilot Dick: Yeah.
    - Jet Pilot: Take a look out of starboard.
    - Co-Pilot Dick: Oh my God, it looks like a huge...
    - Bird-Watching Woman: Pecker.
    - Bird-Watching Man: (with binoculars) Oooh, Where?
    - Bird-Watching Woman: Wait, that's not a woodpecker. It looks like someone's...
    - Army Sergeant: Privates. We have reports of an unidentified flying object. It has a long, smooth shaft, complete with...
    - Baseball Umpire: Two balls. (looking up from the ball-game and removing his mask) What is that? That looks just like an enormous...
    - Chinese Teacher: Wang. pay attention.
    - Young Wang: I was distracted by that enormous flying...
    - Musician: Willie.
    - Willie Nelson: Yeah?
    - Musician: What's that?
    - Willie: (squinting) Well, it looks like a giant...
    - Colonel: Johnson.
    - Radar Operator Johnson: Yes, sir?
    - Colonel: Get on the horn to British Intelligence and let them know about this...
  • Felicity and Austin hitched a ride to the Moon in the Apollo 11 capsule, and searched for Dr. Evil; Powers fought against Mini-Me and after subduing him flushed and ejected him ("poor little bugger") into outer space through the Lunar Disposal Unit
  • when Austin confronted Dr. Evil to get back his mojo, he was presented with a difficult choice: save the world or Felicity, who was locked in a chamber with poison gas; Powers diverted the laser beam firing and saved the DC Capital, but Felicity died from poisonous gas in a plot twist, however, Austin used Evil's time portal and went back ten minutes in time to again save the world - and Felicity with his double-self
  • Dr. Evil activated the Moon Base's self-destruct mechanism and escaped in his phallic-shaped rocket, as he threw the glass vial of Austin's mojo into the air; Powers was unable to catch it and it crashed to the floor; Felicity reassured Austin that he had his "mojo" all along; the two both escaped through the time portal back to the present year of 1999
  • in Austin's pad, the obese and unhappy Fat Bastard (disguised as a FBD delivery man) attempted to kill Powers, but Felicity intervened and disarmed him by kicking him in the groin
  • in his rocket, Dr. Evil retrieved Mini-Me from spinning in space, as the sexy wordplay montage continued:

    - Basil Exposition: Did we get Dr. Evil?
    - Radar Operator Johnson: No, sir. He got away in that rocket that looks like a huge...
    - Sex Ed Teacher: Penis. The male reproductive organ. Also known as tallywhacker, schlong, or...
    - Friendly Dad: Wiener? Any of your kids want another wiener?
    - Friendly Son: (pointing) Dad, what's that?
    - Friendly Dad: I don't know, son, but it's got great big...
    - Peanut Vendor: Nuts! Hot, salty nuts. Who wants some? Lord Almighty!
    - Woman: That looks just like my husband's...
    - Circus Barker: ONE-EYED MONSTER. Step right up and see the One-eyed Monster!
    - Cyclops: RARRR. Hey, what's that? It looks like a big...
    - Fan: Woody. Woody Harrelson. Can I have your autograph?
    - Woody: Sure, no problem. Oh, my Lord! Look at that thing!
    - Fan: It's so big!
    - Woody: I've seen bigger. That's...
    - Dr. Evil: (with a hypodermic needle) Just a little prick.

Sex Ed Teacher: "Penis"
  • during the end credits, a repeat of the Jerry Springer TV show revealed that Dr. Evil's son Scott was not created in a test tube, but was the love child of Dr. Evil and Frau Farbissina ("You are my love child with Dr. Evil")
  • about one month later, Austin returned to his pad, where he found Felicity in bed with the "past Austin" who admitted: "Technically, it's not cheating, baby" (he reasoned that he and Austin were the same person); Austin quickly forgave her: "Well, Felicity, I can't blame you. The man is handsome, baby," and confidently said: "I've got my mojo back." The two Austins were on either side of Felicity ready to make love ("do the bad thing")
