Austin Powers in Goldmember

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.

Continuity mistake: When Mike Myers is Austin Powers and is talking to himself as Dr. Evil, if you watch his medallion, it is constantly twirling between shots. You may think it's because he was moving around, but he was not moving his upper body at all. The arrow even tucks inside of the jacket for one shot.

Continuity mistake: In the first scene with Dr. Evil, inside the alleged 'Hollywood Talent Agency', Scott asks for some chocolate because he wants to prove to his dad that he is better than Mini Me. The chocolate is right next to him after he eats it. If you look closely, you can barely see it at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. You can see the corner of the box. The shot changes back and forth between Dr. Evil and Scott a couple times. Almost every time it goes back to Scott, the chocolate is gone then comes back the next time. (00:10:55)

Continuity mistake: When the globe falls on Dr. Evil's head it should be shattered at the bottom. But if you look closely at the globe as it is lying on the floor seconds later you can clearly see a perfectly round hole where Dr. Evil's head was made to fit into it. (00:41:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the start of the film where Dr. Evil is having a laugh with everyone, you can see in one shot that Scott's hand position changes slightly.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Austin is in the laundry basket, sumo wrestlers put their diapers in the basket. Black, gold,and Fat Bastard's diapers are the colors although when Austin smells Fat Bastard's diaper, to the right to him is a silver diaper. No sumo wrestler put a silver one in there. (00:46:35)

Continuity mistake: When Austin and Mini Me are doing the famous shadow scene in this movie, Mini Me blows up a rubber glove and as you can see Austin has his back facing the camera, but when they show the shadow they are casting Austin is facing the opposite way. (01:13:15)

Continuity mistake: When Austin is driving with Foxxy and Nigel he is wearing a pink and black striped suit. When they almost hit the bus the stunt driver is wearing a dark blue suit.

Factual error: When Austin is showing Foxy the internet, the URLs on the bottom of the page refer to domains that end in .UK.GOV. All UK Government web sites end in .GOV.UK. The .GOV suffix is only used for US Government sites, and none of those have the prefix ".uk".


Revealing mistake: When Austin first sees Foxxy in the nightclub, she is singing with two back up girls and doing the same dance moves as the back up singers are doing. You clearly see that the back up singers dance to the right and Foxxy goes to the left, then corrects herself. (00:24:30)

Continuity mistake: Whenever Goldmember undresses. it causes a gold glow to light up the surrounding area. Later on in the movie when he reveals the 'second key', it stops producing this effect.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: We still see the glow as he's getting the key.

I believe he's referring to the fact that once removed, the key is no longer glowing, even though the film indicated it glowed.


Continuity mistake: When Austin and Foxxy are in Goldmember's factory you can see henchmen working on the car behind Austin and Foxxy. In another shot the henchmen are gone, in the next shot they're back. This happens a few times.

Other mistake: As Goldmember skates out onto the dancefloor, the black woman in gold behind him has a few problems rollerskating. She doesn't quite keep in time with the music like everyone else, and stumbles after everyone raises their knee. The woman directly behind her seems to bump into her. (00:25:14)

Continuity mistake: During the fight scene between Austin and Mini Me, Austin knocks over a lamp and it lands directly in front of the coffee table. A couple of shots later it is now off to the side of the table.


Continuity mistake: In the room with the fountain in the factory, there is a plant next to each of the 3 doors (Research, Offices and Factory). There is a plant to the right of the office door. But when one of the guards enters (and also Foxxy later), the plant is not there. (00:57:05)

Continuity mistake: When Austin is beating up poor little Mini Me, he smashes Mini Me through the glass table and it shatters. Even though there are two tables in the room it's the glass table that you can see through the screen door. But then they show a clip of the "Mole" guy talking to Basil on the phone with the table on the right side of the screen perfectly intact. (01:04:25)

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning sequence of the film when a view of the empty Shaguar can be seen, the camera moves along side. When this happens, the car carrying the camera can be seen in a squashed up reflection against the Shaguar. (00:00:50)

Other mistake: When Austin has Mini Me strapped to him upside down, his head is in front of Austin's crotch. So don't you think that when Mini Me dropped his hands and the bag of water you would see the bag and his hands? (01:13:40)

Factual error: When Austin Powers lands in Tokyo, the subtitle reads "Toyko International Airport." This is fixed in the Infinifilm DVD version. (00:44:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Frau visits Dr. Evil in prison, the guards' position in the background changes from shot to shot - arms crossed, on the side, hands folded...


Austin Powers: Mole! Bloody mole! We aren't supposed to talk about the bloody mole, but there's a bloody mole winking me in the face! I want to cut it off, chop it off, and make guacaMOLE!
