Revealing mistake: In the beginning right before the opening dance number begins, Gwyneth Paltrow and Steven Spielberg (in cameo roles) do back flips. You can see the stunt double doing them as the stunt double was wearing a blond wig (depicting Paltrow) that falls off after the first flip. (00:04:22)

Continuity mistake: When Austin and Mini Me are behind the screen in the examination room aboard the submarine, the second sailor to be examined witnesses Mini Me drop out from under Austin, somewhat resembling a woman giving birth to a child.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Austin Powers is on Mini Me's shoulders, Austin picks up and throws a henchman's sailor hat in the air. It lands in a very visible spot, but when there is a close-up on Mini Me's legs, the hat is gone. It shows up again right after that. (01:11:00)

Revealing mistake: During the opening sequence, when we see Austin doing backflips down the red carpet, you can see that Austin's double has dark skin.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Goldmember peels a big chunk of skin from his shoulder and eats it, you see the skin he's holding is almost transparent. The scene then cuts to Dr. Evil and back to Goldmember, and the skin he puts in his mouth is now brown/dark green. (00:40:05)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Austin, Mini Me and Foxxy enter the sub, they are all wearing fins. Foxxy takes her cap off and her hair expands, and Mini Me makes out with her leg.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Austin is in Goldmember's Office in Studio 69, the camera pans down to Foxy's feet, and she is wearing gold platform shoes. In the next shot after Goldmember takes Nigel out in the time machine, Austin and Foxy run out the door and Foxy is wearing sneakers. She runs from behind the desk and out the door, never having time to change her shoes.

Audio problem: In the scene where Fook Mi is explaining about her sister and her names, she points to her sister and says "Fook Yu." Then she points to herself and says "Fook Mi. See?" When she says this, you can see that her mouth doesn't move.

Continuity mistake: Just after Dr Evil gets the globe on his head, there is a man on his left with a giant screw-wrench in his hand. The shot later, there is also a woman and the screw-wrench has disappeared. Another shot later, the woman has disappeared and after that, the man.

Revealing mistake: In the scene when Austin Powers goes to visit Dr. Evil in prison to ask about his father there is a shot of Dr. Evil with Austin's head partially in it. If you look at his reflection in the glass, you see he looks nothing like Austin. The person in the reflection is actually a body double. (00:21:20)

Continuity mistake: At one point in Fat Bastard's fight at the sumo arena, his hands are below his opponent's hands, but in the next shot, his hands are above his shoulders.

Continuity mistake: Just after Dr. Evil reveals his evil plan, he puts the remote that he was using on the table. If you look at the remote throughout the scene from facing fowards to facing to the viewers' right.

Continuity mistake: Austin is in 2002 with his new teeth. He goes back in time to 1975 to find his father and he has the old teeth again. He goes back to 2002 with Foxxy Cleopatra, but he still has the bad teeth. (00:36:45)

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the "Mole", he is in Dr. Evil's Hollywood Lair. When he brings Dr. Evil his chair, there is a close-up on his mole, which has no hair on it. In Austin's "Pad", when Basil comes in to tell Austin and Foxxy about the Mole, there is a close-up on his mole again, but this time there are two little hairs sticking out.

Austin Powers: Mole! Bloody mole! We aren't supposed to talk about the bloody mole, but there's a bloody mole winking me in the face! I want to cut it off, chop it off, and make guacaMOLE!

More trivia for Austin Powers in Goldmember

Question: At the end of the second film, Felicity went to the future with Austin. When this film starts she's nowhere in sight for the whole movie. Whatever happened to her?

Answer: An original cut featured the opening scene with Heather Graham in it (I'm not sure what happens) - I'm assuming they dropped that idea when they could get hold of all the cameo stars. Hopefully it'll surface on the DVD.

Reportedly she left Austin because he couldn't get over Vanessa.


Answer: Remember that there were 2 Austins at the end of the second film, thus she likely ended up with one of them, while the other Austin went in a different direction.
