Powers last night -- I hadn't ever seen it. And I must say,
it wasn't really as funny as I was expecting. I mean, it has its
moments, and it parodies the spy genre quite well. It even includes a
number of exactly my sorts of silly jokes, but really, overall I felt
that it wasn't all it's been cracked up to be. Maybe I just went into
it with too-high expectations.
I think most of my favorite parts of the movie involved Dr. Evil -- he
was rather funnier than Austin Powers. I guess it's often the case
that bad guys are more interesting characters than good guys.
