Austin Powers in Goldmember

Continuity mistake: When Austin is fighting the ninjas, Foxxy Cleopatra is seen leaning on a pillar behind. In one shot she is seen standing up and walking away. There is a shot of Austin fighting and then a shot of her, where she can be seen doing exactly what she did seconds before.

Visible crew/equipment: When Goldmember is escaping with Nigel Powers, he kicks Foxy in the face. At the bottom center of the screen, a man's hands flip the fake leg to kick Foxy in the face. (00:32:40)

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie, as everyone is standing up in the cinema and Thin Bastard shouts "Hey Powers," you can see the stand-in actor playing Dr. Evil as he turns to face Mini Me. (01:23:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene that parodies Hannibal Lector in prison from "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991), we see a behind shot of Dr. Evil relieving himself in the toilet. When he turns around, you can see that his jumpsuit does not have a zipper in the crotch. (00:21:20)


Continuity mistake: When Mini Me drops his pants in front of Nigel Powers, he pulls his hands up twice. This cannot be seen in the wide-screen versions.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dr. Evil sees the gold key is missing and Foxxy walks in with it, a far shot shows her entering with a gun in her right hand, pointing up by her head. In the next shot, a close-up view, the gun is pointing straight down.

Continuity mistake: When they "lower the globe" you can see the sub is not on there at first then in the next shot it is. (00:41:10)

Audio problem: In the scene where Fat Bastard is taking a dump you see his shadow through that wall thing. However his mouth isn't moving in time with the words you hear him say.

Factual error: Just after Austin recollects what Mini Me did last time he used the peace symbol, they both smash bottles to use for fighting. Austin grabs his out of a gift basket and Mini Me grabs his out of the mini fridge. Considering the location of both Austin and Mini Me's bottles, shouldn't liquid come out of the bottles because they are new? (01:03:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene in 1975 when Goldmember peels a chunk of skin off his head, he asks for the skinbox, which Foxxy opens. The scene cuts to Austin and Nigel, then back to Goldmember, where Foxxy is opening the skin box again. (00:30:35)

Factual error: The Hollywood sign is over 350' wide and would not have been visible outside Dr. Evil's lair given how small the opening was and the perspective we see it from.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in Dr. Evil's secret Hollywood lair the people behind the shot of Scott disappear and reappear several times. A woman sitting on a couch sits alone, but in the next shot she is sitting with a man reviewing files. The man disappears several times. (00:09:50)

Other mistake: In the scene where Dr Evil and Goldmember are in the submarine, they get two henchmen to bring out Nigel Powers from his cell. Just before Nigel explains to the henchmen how he's going to beat them up, if you look through the glass face of the submarine just behind Nigel's head, you can see a fake fish dangling past on a string. (00:42:25)

Continuity mistake: During the opening sequence Austin visits Qunicy Jones and the orchestra. When Austin pops out of the "movie screen" the timer below the screen reads 20:18:58. He re-enters the "movie screen" 13 seconds later, but the timer has progressed faster than the movie and is now at 20:19:26, 28 seconds later. (00:05:20)


Audio problem: In the scene where Austin gets interrupted by Basil when he's with the Japanese twins, you can hear the twins say "bye bye", but they don't move their mouths. (00:16:41)

Continuity mistake: When we are first introduced to the Mole, his mole is very close to his nose. When they show a close-up of the mole, however, it further down and closer to his lip than it was before. In the next shot, it's up by his nose again.


Continuity mistake: You can see that the hills (complete with HOLLYWOOD sign) are superimposed at the end of the opening sequence. A blue sky is visible through the gates, and in gaps in the leaves of the tree at the left of the scene. (00:07:00)

Continuity mistake: Whenever there is a scene inside the submarine, you can see that the front is just Dr. Evil's face sticking out from the wall. However, from the shots outside the submarine, you can see that there is a whole head connected to the neck instead of sticking out of the wall. (00:39:15)

Continuity mistake: When Goldmember first drives into the submarine, you can see some boxes and tanks to the right of the submarine, when Austin and Foxxy arrive when the sub submerges, the boxes and tanks have disappeared.

Austin Powers: Twins, Basil. Twins.

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.
