Revealing mistake: In the scene where Austin and his allies burst through the big blue door, right before "Secret Agent Man" begins playing, the door explodes, and you can clearly see that it's made out of wood, even though it's painted to look like and is meant to be metal. This mistake is even mentioned in the director's commentary on the Austin Powers DVD.

Revealing mistake: When Patty O'Brien (the Irish assassin) fails to strangle Austin in the restroom, Austin grabs him and shoves his head in the toilet. If you look closely, right before O'Brien's head enters the toilet, the back of his hair is already wet. (00:32:30)

Revealing mistake: During the Honeymoon scene when Austin and Vanessa are both naked, Austin sits down on the couch - I think it's the computer that covers him up. But if you look closely, you can see the G-string he's wearing. It's flesh coloured and hard to see, but it's there.

Revealing mistake: There are close-ups of Burt Bacharach playing piano and singing to Austin and Vanessa on top of a "bus" as they cruise through Las Vegas. From a long shot as the vehicle travels by, it's very obvious that it's not Burt playing, but a stand-in.

Revealing mistake: Watch the people who fall back into the fire, courtesy of Dr. Evil. As they fall back, watch their feet - they roll off to either the left or the right.

Dr. Evil: Very well, where should I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims, like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. A sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical; summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. If I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fifteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shawn scrotum. At the age of eighteen, I went off to evil medical school. From there.
