30 Day Film Challenge: Day 2 – Your Least Favourite Film

Why, just why…. This film was little more than an excuse for Mike Myers to see how many rude jokes and obvious innuendos he could fit in to a single movie. It also to me started the trend of crap spoofs that, rather than intelligently send up the originals, just use the framework to make bad jokes and get a few cheap laughs (Scary Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans etc. etc.). You’ll have to wait till Day 18 and my favourite comedy for an example of the right way to make a spoof film. Obviously, the films that have followed Austin Powers’ pattern have got progressively worse and worse, but to my mind, this one kicked it off and I really, really hate it.
