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. Mini Me does not have hair when he drops out from under Austin, however, in the next shot, Mini Me is shown getting up, and he has his wig on. (01:13:50)
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. Mini Me and Foxxy are no longer wearing Finns and they are not close by as if they had just slipped out of them.Pam-I-am
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.
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)
Revealing mistake: When the first sumo takes off his "diaper" and throws it in the basket, you can see he is still wearing something.
Trivia: The content of the email received by Austin while he is demonstrating the internet is 'A new ATM card will be sent to you by Fed-Ex because your account has ben compromised by an unknown hacker who obtained your PIN Number while you were purchasing an MP3 Player on E-Bay. Sincerely, Your Bank.' This was included because Mike Myers really did have his bank account compromised shortly before filming. (00:38:37)
