Revealing mistake: When the first sumo takes off his "diaper" and throws it in the basket, you can see he is still wearing something.

Suggested correction: Nothing indicates in the film that sumos are necessarily naked under their layer.

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.

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.

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: 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)

Question: At the end of the second film, Felicity went to the future with Austin. When this film starts she's nowhere in site for the whole movie. What ever happened to her?

Answer: An original cut featured the opening scene with Heather Graham in it (I'm not sure what happens) - I'm assuming they dropped that idea when they could get hold of all the cameo stars. Hopefully it'll surface on the DVD.
