Austin Powers in Goldmember

Corrected entry: When Austin and Foxxy are trying to rescue Nigel from the conveyor belt, he is reaching closer to the fire, but when he is talking to Austin and Foxxy he isn't moving at all.

Correction: Nigel wasn't on a conveyor belt, he was on a robotic arm which placed him stationary in front of the smelting device that was moving closer and closer to him. Nigel wasn't supposed to be moving when talking to Austin and Foxxy.

Corrected entry: While the Japanese twins' names are pronounced about right, they would never be spelled the way they are on the bags, as Japanese cannot end syllables with a consonant (except n). They should be written Fukumi and Fukuyu.

Sereenie

Correction: In a deleted scene, we learn that the twins aren't really Japanese - they're called Cindy and Sally. They might not know how to spell Japanese names in English.

Corrected entry: In one scene when Dr. Evil is talking, there is a shot when Dr. Evil says "little creepy." As he is saying this you can see the boom mike at the top of the screen. (00:39:55)

Correction: This is not a boom mic, it is simply the periscope that was lifted in an earlier shot.

Corrected entry: When Dr. Evil gets hit in the crutch by the meteor model, we hear Goldmember say "Schei*e" (German for s**t), but he is Dutch. The Dutch word for s**t is the same as the English word. No one in Holland would say Schei*e.

Correction: Simply not true, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, many Dutch speak fluent German since it has many similarities with Dutch and they have a common border. Secondly but much more importantly, words like Scheisse and merde (its French equivalent) are regularly used by people from other countries. I used to live in Holland and frequently heard Dutch people using German and the word Scheisse.

Corrected entry: When Goldmember has taken Austin's father Nigel in the time machine, all the henchwomen are shooting Foxxy and Austin. Foxxy shouts "C'mon, Sugar" and she races to Austin's car/time machine, but how did she know where it was? No one (including Austin) ever told her and she never saw it beforehand.

Correction: Considering that all the guards are shooting at them, Foxxy would just be trying to get out of the building. She then saw Austin's car and headed for it.

Corrected entry: Austin Powers left school in 1959. He would have been 18 then. This means that the family holiday in Belgium, when he was a baby, would have been in 1941. Continental Europe would have been an odd choice for a family holiday that year, what with World War II going on and everything. Note: Lots of people seem to think that in England school leaving age is 16. It can be, but most stay on until 18, especially at a smart private school like Austin's. (01:16:10)

Correction: In the post-war years, the school leaving age in Britain was 15. It had been increased to that age by the Education Act of 1944, and wasn't raised again (to the current age of 16) until 1973. Assuming that Austin left school at 15, he would have been born in 1944 - and he would still have been a baby had his family's trip to Belgium taken place any time up to about the end of 1945. Given that Belgium was liberated from Nazi occupation within a few months of the D-Day landings in June 1944, it's fair to say that they could have visited that country in 1945 without too much fear of being shot at.

Tim Haveron Jones

Corrected entry: In the flashback scenes in Belgium (1941), Nigel, as Austin's father, looks to be about thirty. This means in 2002, at the time the film is set, he should be in his nineties and a bit old for spying and "shagging." Time travel doesn't come into it - he's captured in the present and taken back to the 70's for safe keeping, so the version we see of him is the present version, so he should be about 90. (01:16:25)

Correction: Like Austin, his services are needed for the future so it's likely he also went through suspended animation like Austin. Maybe that's why he keeps missing Austin's events.

Corrected entry: In the Sumo Arena, the 'Twister' move Fat Bastard used on the Sumo Wrestler would definitely be a foul, and he would have lost the game; but in the movie, he wins.

Correction: For that very reason Austin and Foxxy both say 'That's not right' and in the very next scene you see Fat Bastard paying the referee. Fat Bastard performs a foul and still wins because he has bribed the ref, not a mistake.

Kara

Corrected entry: When Dr. Evil has the globe dropped on his head, it is dangling there behind him when Mini me throws the model asteroid. A few seconds later the globe is gone. (00:41:20)

Correction: The globe was not there because Number 2 took it off.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Austin and Foxxy are in Austin's car in Tokyo, Foxxy is wearing an orange/reddish shirt and has Japanese chopsticks in her hair. Basil then says to go to the sumo wrestling arena where Fat Bastard is immediately and when Austin and Foxxy get to the arena, Foxxy is wearing a completely different outfit and her hair is different. (00:44:50)

Correction: Foxxy usually has more than one set of clothes on her, as noticed when she's wearing her usual clothes after ditching her cleaning lady disguise later on.

Corrected entry: Just before Dr. Evil asks for the re-enactment of the meteor striking the earth, Mini Me wheels himself over to the left hand side of the screen. When Dr. Evil asks for the meteor to be dropped, (not even 1 minute later) Mini Me is up on high scaffolding of the other side of the room. (00:40:50)

Correction: As shown in the last movie, Mini-me's chair is capable of launching him high into the air, he may have simply hit the jump button.

Corrected entry: Before Mini Me goes sliding down the vent shaft Austin tells Mini Me to take the map. Mini Me grabs the unfolded map and jumps down the shaft. Before he breaks through the door at the end of the shaft, you can clearly see that the map is folded. (01:14:00)

Correction: Considering how long it took Mini-me to get to Foxxy he could have very well folded it.

Corrected entry: Austin Powers, Dr. Evil, Basil Exposition, and No.2 all attended the same school - the BRITISH Intelligence Academy. I could understand Austin and Basil, they're both English, but Dr. Evil is Belgian and No.2 is American - why aren't they enrolled under the Intelligence programs of their own countries? (00:20:00)

Correction: Perhaps simply because the British school is better. Wouldn't an American family want only the BEST for their son? As for Dr. Evil, his parents would want him to learn the best Spy skills for evil. For all we know Austin's dad pulled strings to get his other son into the academy.

Correction: Because they didn't do anything. Dr. Evil developed the evil plan, Frau was just in the room, Number 2's new business was perfectly legal, and Scott's never committed a real crime.

Corrected entry: On the DVD, in the scene with Austin and the Fook twins, when they sit on the bed you can see the twin on the right's foot get tangled in some wire that is on the floor.

Correction: It is most likely a wire to some of Austin's stereo equipment, disco lights, or even a vibrator in the bed, not movie equipment.

Corrected entry: In "The Spy Who Shagged Me", Dr. Evil tells Austin that he's Austin's father, which Austin believes until Dr. Evil tells him he has nothing to back that up. But in this film, Dr. Evil and Austin were in Spy School together at around the same age. Don't you think that Austin would have been smart enough to make the connection immediately without believing that Dr. Evil is not his father?

Correction: Doctor Evil had to psychologically probe Austin's mind to make him remember, so in all likelihood, he didn't remember in Spy Who Shagged Me.

Correction: He didn't keep it in the factory, just near him. He used the remote control in his watch to constantly keep his Mini near him should an opportunity to escape show up.

Correction: Foxxy's two backup singers/dancers at Studio 69 are NOT related to Beyonce as stated in the entry. They are Sybil Azur and Nicole Humphries, as can be seen in the credits. Beyonce only has one sister, Solange Knowles.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Evil is talking to Goldmember in the submarine, Dr. Evil proclaims to not speak 'freaky-deaky' Dutch, yet he is from Brugge, which is in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium. (00:42:08)

Correction: People in Brugge speak Flemish, NOT Dutch, even though they are similar languages.

Sereenie

Corrected entry: Just after Nigel finishes saying what he hates in the world, Austin turns his head and says "what", but if you look at his mouth, he doesn't move his lips.

Jackie Menechino

Correction: It isn't Austin saying this. The voice is higher than Austin's, just like Goldmember's. Plus it sounded horrified, and Austin would be just questioning his father doing one of the things he himself hates most, disrespecting another person's culture. So it must've been Goldmember's.

Continuity mistake: When Fook Mi and Fook Yu are standing with their backs to Austin, they start laughing. In the next scene which is about a second later, they are facing Austin.

More quotes from Austin Powers in Goldmember

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)

More trivia for Austin Powers in Goldmember

Question: I don't get this: When Nigel Powers is first taken to the submarine, at one point he looks down, sees Mini Me and says "I thought I smelt cabbage." What's that all about?

Answer: In the first Austin Powers when he is talking about his two fears, one of them was carnies. He then said they have small hands and smell like cabbage. Most likely then Mini-Me reminded him of a carny.
