Revealing mistake: In the beginning right before the opening dance number begins, Gwyneth Paltrow and Steven Spielberg (in cameo roles) do back flips. You can see the stunt double doing them as the stunt double was wearing a blond wig (depicting Paltrow) that falls off after the first flip.
Continuity mistake: When Austin and Mini Me are behind the screen in the examination room aboard the submarine, the second sailor to be examined witnesses Mini Me drop out from under Austin, somewhat resembling a woman giving birth to a child. Mini Me does not have hair when he drops out from under Austin, however, in the next shot, Mini Me is shown getting up, and he has his wig on.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Austin, Mini Me and Foxxy enter the sub, they are all wearing fins. Foxxy takes her cap off and her hair expands, and Mini Me makes out with her leg. Mini Me and Foxxy are no longer wearing Finns and they are not close by as if they had just slipped out of them.
Continuity mistake: Just after Dr Evil gets the globe on his head, there is a man on his left with a giant screw-wrench in his hand. The shot later, there is also a woman and the screw-wrench has disappeared. Another shot later, the woman has disappeared and after that, the man.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Austin is in Goldmember's Office in Studio 69, the camera pans down to Foxy's feet, and she is wearing gold platform shoes. In the next shot after Goldmember takes Nigel out in the time machine, Austin and Foxy run out the door and Foxy is wearing sneakers. She runs from behind the desk and out the door, never having time to change her shoes.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Austin is attempting to rescue his father, Goldmember gets behind a screen to change into different clothes. When Goldmember takes off his robe, you can see that his crotch is glowing gold...But when his clothes come back on, the glowing doesn't stop.
Revealing mistake: In the scene when Austin Powers goes to visit Dr. Evil in prison to ask about his father there is a shot of Dr. Evil with Austin's head partially in it. If you look at his reflection in the glass, you see he looks nothing like Austin. The person in the reflection is actually a body double.
Continuity mistake: The first time we see the "Mole", he is in Dr. Evil's Hollywood Lair. When he brings Dr. Evil his chair, there is a close-up on his mole, which has no hair on it. In Austin's "Pad", when Basil comes in to tell Austin and Foxxy about the Mole, there is a close-up on his mole again, but this time there are two little hairs sticking out.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Basil interrupts Austin and the Japanese twins, look behind Basil. In several of the shots toward him and you can see a guy in orange and someone else dancing. In the next shot, about a second later, the guy is propped up against the wall. Pretty quick, huh?
Visible crew/equipment: In the opening scene where Austin is parachuting down to the Shaguar, there's a shot where you can see the Shaguar driving along without a driver. Notice that the driver seat is much bigger than the passenger seat, it's obviously somebody inside the seat driving the car.
Continuity mistake: When Austin and Foxxy are confusing Mr. Roboto's words, the plate of food on the table changes between shots. Sometimes it is in front of Austin (even after Foxxy moves it), sometimes it is in front of Foxxy, and sometimes it is missing altogether.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nigel is telling the henchmen how he is going to beat them up, five out of his six coat buttons are undone. However, when Mini Me is leading Nigel into the room, all his buttons are done up, but Nigel wouldn't have had any time to do up his buttons if Mini Me was pointing a gun at him.
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.

Other mistake: When Austin, MiniMe and Foxxy are in Nigel's Mini, MiniMe is communicating to them with written notes. When he writes the first note to Austin, Austin reads it with the written words facing the camera. He is reading the back of the page where no words exist. Also, the words are upside down when facing the camera. In slo-mo, we can see the hand-off of the paper from Mini Me to Austin and how the front, top written on side of the paper ends up facing the camera and upside down. There is no way that Austin can read what is on the page. The paper is not thin enough to be read through as one other person has claimed. Foxy receives a note from Mini Me and we cannot read through the paper that is handed her.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: Just after Nigel and Austin are turned around on the bed to face Goldmember, we see Foxxy filing Goldmember's nails from behind. In the very next shot where we see the front of Goldmember his nails are still being filed, but then in the next shot Foxxy is simply standing there and Goldmember sitting still as if they were doing nothing.
Factual error: After Fat Bastard's sumo match he goes to the toilet -- a Western style toilet. The sumo arena, especially the locker room area, would be traditionally Japanese. There is no way that a Western style, sit down toilet would be found there. What we should see is a silhouette of Fat Bastard squatting down over a Japanese style toilet which is like a trough in the floor.
