I didn't get much out of this. I bet it would have kicked in the 60s and 70s.

This is a good sequel, though not without it's shortcomings. There is more low-brow humor and pop culture references, which have dated the film slightly. It's still goofy fun.

"Dr. Evil" has a time travel device made, and he, along with his minature clone "Mini-Me" (Vern Troyer), goes back to 1969, two years after "Powers" was cryogenically frozen, to steal the swinging secret agent's mojo in hopes that it will render "Powers" powerless. But British Intelligence has developed its own time machine, in the form of a psychedelically painted Volkswagon Beetle, which "Powers" uses to go back in time …
