Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Corrected entry: Some sounds of Mini Me's voice are squeaky. But in the part where they're singing and playing the piano, you hear that Mini Me's voice is deep.

Correction: I fail to see how this is a "mistake" since it was planned by the director. The joke is that Mini-me, who never talks in the movie but does "squeak" occasionally, has this one deep voiced line; notice the reaction of Frau and Number Two; how shocked they are. Remember the dramatic difference between what Jim Nabors, of Gomer Pyle fame, sounded like talking (Shazaam) and singing. About the same as Mini-me.

Zwn Annwn

Corrected entry: The actor (Mike McDonald) who finds the penis-shaped ship on radar is the same actor who, in the first one, gets run over by the steamroller.

Correction: That is not Michael MacDonald. He appears earlier, as the guy who discovers Dr. Evil while watching Jerry Springer.

Corrected entry: When Mini Me is first introduced and is sitting with Dr. Evil stroking Mini Mr. Bigglesworth you can clearly see he hands it to someone barely below the table line instead of all the way to the ground. (00:14:40)

Correction: He doesn't hand it over to anyone, he just drops the cat under the table.


Corrected entry: Dr. Evil has a button pad on his meeting table. It is to get rid of anyone who is sitting in their chair, if they are "bad". When Mini Me is first introduced, he comes to the table. Scott makes fun of him, and Mini Me jumps to hit Scott's button. When you see his hand and the pad, the very bottom name you can see, is "Mini Me". If Dr. Evil did not know about him then why was his name already on there? If someone else put it there, wouldn't Dr. Evil have noticed it? Also, on the same pad, Dr. Evil's name is on there too. If it is for Dr. Evil's use only then why would his own name be on there?

Correction: Considering how wealthy doctor Evil is, he could have easily had a new button installed upon Mini-Me's creation. As for his own button, if Austin Powers ever tried to capture him he could self-terminate, or it could lead to an escape hatch.

Corrected entry: As Felicity drives Austin away from his pad, you can tell that she is on a green screen because there are parts where she turns the wheel, but the car doesn't turn.

Jackie Menechino

Correction: It is obvious this was done on purpose, to mock old-movies with bad blue-screen effects.

Corrected entry: When Austin and Ivana Humpalot are playing chess, Austin starts choking on the chess piece. He spits it out and it hits the vase, but you can clearly see that the chess piece that he spit out starts to fall to the ground and then magically flies up to the vase and hits it. (00:20:50)

Correction: This is partially true, however, there is no footage of the chess-piece "flying up into the vase." You simply see something strike the vase, and it appears to be at a proper angle, so technically, if Austin spat it out hard enough, it would work.

Corrected entry: When Austin is fighting Ms Spitz, after the knife has been thrown in her back and before the machine gun fire, you can see she has more than one hole in the back of her dress. If she hadn't been shot yet, where did those holes come from?

Correction: She has been shot, as you can hear the gun before she gets picked up. You just can't see those holes exploding onto her back because they occurred off screen a split second earlier.

Corrected entry: When the moon base self destructs, there is no debris visible at all where the moon base used to be.

Correction: This is impossible to tell, the camera pans up and fades out, so you cannot see where it used to be.

Corrected entry: When Dr. Evil is negotiating with the President of the United States in 1969, one of the military officials is the exact same actor, at the same age, who played the general from "International Man of Mystery" (1997) who was in the scene when Austin was unfrozen.

Correction: Not an error, merely a coincidental resemblance.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Mini Me is first seen, in the shadow on the screen where he is projected as full size before Number Two says he is 1/8 the size. Mini Me is in a different stance in the shadow projection than when the screen lifts to show him to everyone.

Correction: He could have moved while the camera panned down to him. There was at least one second of spare time, which one can easily change position in.

Corrected entry: At the end of the photo shoot with Rebecca Romijn (in a cameo) and Ivana Humpalot, Austin tells them to get up. You can see them begin to rise, and the camera cuts to Austin. Then it cuts back to Ivana who is standing up and smoking a cigarette. She could not have gotten up, taken out a cigarette, and lit it in the short time between these shots.

Correction: This is deliberately mocking the stereotype of Evil Russian henchwomen in movies, who are always standing tall, looking sexy, holding a cigarette, to attract the protagonist.

Corrected entry: When Mustafa falls off the cliff he says, "I think my legs may be broken, let me try to stand up...yes THEY"RE broken" implying that both are broken. Then he continues to say, as if he only tried to stand on one leg before, "Let me try the other one...OW".

Correction: Well, you try making sense after falling down a cliff and breaking your legs.

Corrected entry: Probably deliberate, but when they are in 1969, all the music you hear is actually from the 1970's.

Correction: There is nothing wrong with this. All the music is added for effect. It is not literally playing "In" the movie. And even if it is, Austin may have brought back some records and such with him.

Corrected entry: When Austin and Felicity are looking through the binoculars at Dr. Evil's lair, the cord is round Austin's neck and Felicity keeps nearly strangling him. One time she yanks the cord and Austin is clearly pulled down into her lap, but in the next shot he's in between her breasts (when he goes "mummy, mummy").

Correction: Austin goes out of camera, so you cannot see where his head ends up. Neither Felicity's breasts, nor lap, are visible in the shots, so this mistake is not valid, because you just can't tell.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Austin tells Felicity that Fat Bastard is at Paddington Station, they both pull out their guns. Felicity seems to pull her gun out of nowhere. Where could it possibly have been stashed in that skin tight, skimpy dress she is wearing? Surely a bulge would be visible? (I noticed plenty of curves, but no bulge!)

Correction: In all seriousness, the gun can be placed for easy accessibility between her upper thighs, with no bulges and perfectly hidden. Not unheard of, and absolutely plausible.

Super Grover

Corrected entry: When Austin and Felicity need to go to the moon they get on the Apollo 11 which was launched 16th July 1969, but earlier in the movie, when Austin went to go and see his frozen self, a sign in the background said it was November 1969.

Correction: Actually, the sign in the background said "Current Date: May 27, 1969. Date frozen: November 11, 1967." So when Austin went to see his frozen self, it was nearly two months before Apollo 11 was launched.

Corrected entry: When travelling back to 1969, there is no reason why Austin's teeth would go back to their original state.

Correction: There is also no reason he should be able to travel back in time. It's a story, and one aspect is bad teeth.

Corrected entry: When Austin and Felicity go to see "Frozen Austin" Austin takes a photographer's camera and takes pictures of his frozen self, and then when he's finished he throws the camera back to the photographer. But later in Austin's "Shag Pad" he is developing the pictures. Though how could he? 1. The camera wasn't his and 2. He threw the camera back to the photographer.

Correction: The photographer could have sent the film to Austin or he could have sent it to Basil and Basil could have sent it to Austin.

Corrected entry: When Dr. Evil is going back in time, he tries, realizes it's not turned on, and tells Number 2 to turn it on. Then he calls for Mini Me to come along. If you thought he was going to make it through the first time wouldn't Mini Me come the first time?

Correction: Dr. Evil might have forgotten to call Mini Me the first time he was going to go through the time machine, and then he remembered and called him.

Corrected entry: In the final scene with Dr Evil he is giving Mini Me a "little prick" but if you look closely Mini Me hasn't got his trousers down and he is bent over. When he stands back up he can clearly be seen to pull his trousers back up, which were never actually down.

Correction: His pants are never down. He mimics the motion, but the fabric never moves.

Revealing mistake: During the bedroom scene with Felicity and Fat Bastard you can clearly see the air hose that fills his suit when he rolls over in the bed. (00:49:10)
