Austin Powers in Goldmember

Plot hole: When Austin and his father Nigel disagree as to how to proceed after Goldmember gets away, they part ways. So why does Austin take his father's car? (01:06:25)

Plot hole: How can Austin's Father be so young? Don't forget that Austin was frozen for 30 years, so their age gap should be 30 more than normal; but despite that the age gap between them seems about normal for a father and son.

Suggested correction: This used to drive me nuts as well, until my latest viewing when I realised Goldmember first kidnaps him in 1975, and brings him to the future. As for Nigel missing Austin's award, maybe in the first timeline Nigel lives to be 95 ish.

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.

Trivia: On the poster for this movie there is a blue car with the male symbol on the front. But that car never appeared in the movie. (It's intended to be the time machine, but the time machine was a purplish color with a Cadillac sign on the front.)

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.
