Austin Powers in Goldmember

Corrected entry: Shouldn't the Mini-Shaguar, being an English spy's English car, have its steering wheel on the right? (00:59:20)

Sereenie

Correction: While it does appear to be on the left, there is only one seat, so there really is no right or left side. Even in right-hand drive cars the steering wheel is slightly to the left relative to the center of the driver's seat (to accommodate things like the air vent).

Bishop73

Corrected entry: After Foxy finishes her song "Goldmember" in 1975, another song is heard in the background. It's "When I Get You Alone." This song was not released until the '90s.

Correction: When I Get You Alone is not the song used in the disco scene, the song used is Walter Murphy's A Fifth of Beethoven.

Corrected entry: A deliberate visual gag - every time there is a shot of Tokyo, there is Mount Fuji in the background. Mount Fuji is nowhere near Tokyo.

Correction: Mount Fuji is certainly visible from Tokyo http://www.spoon-tamago.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Fuji-from-afar-bunkyo-civic-center.jpg.

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the film where you see Mini me, the gun he is holding is called the FN Minimi.

Correction: The weapon DeVito uses as Mini Me is not the FN Minimi, it is actually an Ultimax 100 mk3 fitted with a 100 round Beta C magazine.

Corrected entry: In the disco scene when Austin travel back to 1975, original music (never before released) from the soundtrack of the film "Saturday Night Fever" is playing in the background at one point. "Saturday Night Fever" wasn't released until 1977.

Correction: After watching this scene several times the song that is playing is actually "Shining Star" by Earth, Wind and Fire. As this song was released in 1975 it is entirely possible that it would be playing in the background.

Corrected entry: Nigel Powers' spy car is a Mini Cooper, a clear reference to Michael Caine's (Nigel) leading role in "The Italian Job" (1969), which features a famous Mini chase.

Shay

Correction: Or, more likely, it is featured because BMW, parent corporation of Mini, paid a huge sum to feature their new prototype of a Mini convertible in the film.

Corrected entry: At the end, when Fat Bastard says he lost 180 pounds, he is a lot skinnier. But in the first movie, Dr. Evil says he weights a metric ton which is 2204 pounds. When he lost 180 pounds, he would still weigh 2024 and not be that skinny.

Correction: It was most likley a exaggeration that Dr. Evil was making. He wouldn't even be able to move if he was that weight.

Spaceboy_007

Corrected entry: When Austin travels to 1975 and he first meets Foxxy but is really talking to Nathan Lane, "she" says the line "About a year ago" you can tell that he has to hurry up and he flubs his line just a tad but quickly recovers.

Erika Medina

Correction: So what if he flubs his line just a tad? He is just supposed to be pretending to be talking to Austin so Foxxy can't be seen talking to Austin. Exact lip synch is not needed to pretend to talk to someone.

Corrected entry: When Scotty ejects Mr. Roboto from his seat into the tank with sharks with frickin' laser beams on their heads, the sharks begin attacking Mr. Roboto. When sharks eat humans there should be a lot of blood in the water. This does not occur in this scene. The water never turns red, it only churns up white. (01:12:45)

luchador

Correction: As Dr.Evil wanted the lasers so that the sharks cold enjoy "A cooked meal", I'm guessing the lasers cooked Roboto instantly, so there would be no blood, just succulent Roboto Juices.

Soylent Purple

Corrected entry: Near the end of the previous film, Dr Evil says "I am your father". Austin replies "Really?" as though he never knew who his father was. However in this film, he seems to know all about his father and has no trouble remembering many past events.

Correction: Austin is an idiot, and he could easily need some 10 seconds to realise that Dr. Evil's 'confession' was completely nonsense.

Corrected entry: Austin travels back to 1975, and fits right in. He was, however, frozen in 1967, and should be just as out of place in the '70's as he was in the '90s. He should have no idea what a "pimp-mobile" is.

Correction: I wasn't around in the 1970's either, but I know what a pimp mobile is. No doubt Austin has watched a lot of TV/Films/Starsky&Hutch in the couple of years that he has been defrosted.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Austin first gets to Studio 69, Foxy is wearing gold platform shoes. In the next scene after Goldmember takes Nigel out in the time machine, Austin and Foxy run out the door and Foxy is wearing sneakers.

Correction: After Foxy finishes her song, she goes backstage and sometime later comes back into the club to talk to Austin Powers. She certainly had time to switch her shoes.

Corrected entry: The doctor in Dr. Evil's submarine who asks Austin to urinate in the glass and go behind the screen is the same actor from the first one who shows Vanessa the Swedish-made penis enlarger pump. He was working for the government then - has he swapped sides? (This is a different character being played by the same actor, yet because his face is recognizable, it is still a mistake.) (01:11:10)

Correction: An actor playing two different characters is not a mistake - the two characters merely have a striking resemblance to each other.

Corrected entry: In the first scene in the Dr. Evil sub, if you look at the fish swimming in the "water" you can quite clearly see one swimming vertically.

Correction: Fish can swim vertically.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Evil is looking through the periscope shaped like his head, he says 'Up Periscope'. He should have said 'down'. Saying 'Up' raises the periscope out of the water on the top of the submarine.

Correction: This is intentional, to show Dr. Evil as an idiot.

Corrected entry: At the start of the film, where Steven Spielberg makes a cameo appearance, that really IS him doing backflips away from the camera.

The Doctor

Correction: No it isn't. It is Kim Robert Kosci, a stuntman.

Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, Goldmember says "Schei├če" (s**t), a German word. He is supposedly Dutch, he would use the Dutch word "verdomme."

Correction: Goldmember dosen't know, or does not want to know, that he is Dutch. This is apparent when he is always saying, "Yes I have a Dutch accent. Isn't it weird?"

Corrected entry: When Fuk Mi's twin is standing next to her she's on the left side of her. Then it shows a cut of Austin. When it cuts back Fuk Mi is introducing Fuk Yu who is standing on her right. They sure switched places fast.

Correction: Fook Mi's twin, Fook Yu, was always on Fook Mi's left side the whole time they were standing. They never switched places, even when Fook Yu was being introduced in the shot described.

Corrected entry: In the very beginning when the Tom Cruise Austin is falling from the sky, he is falling upside down but close up shots show him falling feet first.

Correction: In the close up shots, it's impossible to tell what angle he is falling at since you cannot see any horizon as a reference. Based on the movement of his body relative to the cloulds, he seems to still be moving head first.

Corrected entry: During the fight scene between Mini Me and Austin, Mini Me is thrown against the mini bar fridge. You can clearly see the glitch in editing when Mini Me replaces the mannequin that hit the ground. (01:03:25)

Correction: From my DVD, that transition looks completely seamless. Of course you can see that there was a transition from a mannequin to a real person, but there is no glitch in the editing. If there was a glitch, then you should be able to tell the exact frame the transition was done. I looked it over a few dozen times, plus a dozen times frame by frame and it seems to be a perfect transition from the mannequin to the real Mini Me.

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.
