Continuity mistake: When Mini Me and Dr. Evil are appearing before the World Organization they are found guilty. When asked if he had anything to say Dr. Evil says "No, but I think Mini Me does". Mini Me then pulls down his pants to moon the Judge and council. When he does this we see him from the front, but there's no sign of his well endowed manhood, as implied later in the film. (00:13:10 - 00:45:55)


Continuity mistake: The first time we see Dr. Evil in his submarine, he is looking through the periscope. When he steps back, we see his eyes are brown. His eyes are blue throughout the rest of the movie. (00:39:20)

Question: At the end of the second film, Felicity went to the future with Austin. When this film starts she's nowhere in site for the whole movie. What ever 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.
