Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Continuity mistake: When Austin and Vanessa is in bed and she is stroking him on his chest she has some pillows behind her head. When it cuts the pillows have changed position. (00:01:55)


Continuity mistake: When Vanessa is shooting at Austin and he waves the white flag, the vase on the shelf behind him is whole. When it cuts to a close-up of the flag the vase behind it is suddenly broken. (00:03:35)


Continuity mistake: When Austin arrives at the photo shooting session we see Rebecca Romijn in the background with two stylists on her right side. When it cuts one of the stylist has suddenly moved to her left side. (00:10:40)


Continuity mistake: When Number Two tells about the coffee company they'd invested in he is standing right next to the counter. When it cuts he is standing 10 feet away from the counter. (00:12:20)


Continuity mistake: In the "Starbucks" scene you can see a paper cup of coffee, and a muffin on the table in front of Dr. Evil. (His pocket mirror is not visible in the first shot.) During next two minutes of the film the different items continually change their positions with the different camera angles; furthermore a piece of paper appears and disappears. (00:14:05)

Continuity mistake: When Basil is driving Austin through the big warehouse to where the time machine is, the car is travelling in a straight line yet he is turning the steering wheel. (00:23:00)

Continuity mistake: When Austin is about to be sent back in time in the Bug, he reverses into some shelves with computers on them, knocking them over. He then pulls forwards. When he reverses again, the computers are back up, and he hits some barrels. When he pulls forwards again, the barrels are back up, but the computers have now disappeared again. (00:23:50)

Continuity mistake: After the assassin throws the knife into Robin Swallows' back, the shot cuts to the assassin. But when it cuts back, Austin is looking quizzically at her back, and we see why. The knife has disappeared! But in all subsequent shots (except when she falls and hits the ground) it is there. (00:27:45)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Ms. Spitz is with Austin at the party and she orders the hitman to use the bazooka, you can clearly see when he fires that the missile stays in the tube. (00:28:15)

Continuity mistake: When the fembot Robin Swallows, and a male assassin at the party attempt to murder Austin, Robin gets a knife in the back which stays there even when they get blown out of the window. As they're falling, notice that before she turns over it's still in her back, even when Austin moves her in front of himself to shield his fall. The only problem is, with the knife still in her back Austin would've been really injured when they hit the ground. However, when they land, the knife mysteriously disappears. (00:28:30)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Evil is about to spend a night with Frau Farbissina, the collar of his shirt is different from the white collar you can see under his grey jacket during the rest of the film. (00:36:47)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Mini Me and Young Number 2 grab for the cookies, when Young Number 2 grabs there are two, one that looks like chocolate chip, and a plain one. When Mini Me grabs for it there is just one. (00:52:35)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Evil is singing "Just the Two of Us", as he says "C'est la vie" Scott walks past him, Dr. Evil looks at him (he walks to the right). Then Dr. Evil turns around about 4 seconds later and Scott is back standing by Frau and Number 2. He couldn't have moved THAT fast. (01:00:30)

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Mini Me is drawing the goodbye card to Scott, (before they go to the moon) you can see that the drawing is already on the page and Mini Me just traces it over. (01:05:50)

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which Mini Me draws the "goodbye card" to Scott, (which, as explained already on the list was drawn ahead of time), there seems to be a red spot under Scott's body on the paper, no doubt signifying blood. But where did he get the red marker to draw it? (01:05:50)

Continuity mistake: When Fat Bastard falls down at the end, he disappears once the dancers come in.
