Continuity mistake: When Mini Me and Austin are fighting on the moon Mini Me bites Austin's spacesuit and you can see his British flag underwear. But after he sends Mini Me out into space, he drops the space suit and Austin is now wearing a blue jumper with no holes in it. (01:17:25 - 01:18:20)

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 Austin and Felicity are having a fun time in London, they stop and sit down at a table. Shortly after they sit down there is a lady behind Felicity in yellow and orange. Then it cuts to Austin, and she's behind him as well! There is no way someone could move that fast. Originally I thought that was the waitress outfit, so there could be more than one, but it's definitely the same woman both times, and on wider shots we only ever see one woman.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where we first meet Mini Me at certain points, if you look closely, the bottle in front of Scott is 3/4 full then suddenly empty.

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)

Continuity mistake: When Fat Bastard explodes through Austin Powers' bedroom door, you can see where his right arm was meant to break through, but didn't. The piece of the door is shown still intact for a moment or two, but with the outline of his arm surrounding it. It disappears in the very next shot of the door only a second later.

Continuity mistake: In the famous "fight scene" with Austin and Mini Me, we see Mini Me picking Powers up in a Gorilla press and turning him around.
