Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

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. Well, when the camera is closing up on Mini Me, he is standing still, twisting him round. However, when the camera isn't close-up on him, Mini Me is turning round.

Continuity mistake: In the view from the inside the tent, Austin is crouched and standing four legged. But his silhouette shown from the outside shows him perfectly four legged with his back straight.


Continuity mistake: When Felicity was packing the tennis racket into the bag in the tent it must have been a tight fit, but a second later the bag is seen completly empty.

Revealing mistake: When Fat Bastard smashes through the door of Austin's apartment (in 1999), the door doesn't have any holes drilled in the side for the latch. You can see this when a piece with the door knob falls to the floor. In addition, you can see on the right side of the door, a mark in the slab where it was cut for Fat Bastard (Mike Myers) to slam through it.


Factual error: When Austin sees the reflection of the assassin in Robin's eyes, it should be a reverse image since it's a reflection, but it's not. The assassin is seen raising his right hand both times when the reflection should make it look like it's his left.


Continuity mistake: When Austin is at the photo shoot with the Ivana Humpalot and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (playing herself), he raises his arm and there is a sweat stain in his armpit. A few seconds later, when he raises his arm again, it's gone.

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)


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)

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Felicity is sticking a racket in the bag, the racket has at first been tucked all the way in to the end of the handle. But a frame later, half of the handle is still out.


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)

Other mistake: In the scene after Mini-Me's and Austin's fight when Austin is sitting on the space toilet to "eject" Mini-Me he picks up a copy of the London Times, as seen on the cover page of the newspaper. On the last page of the newspaper there is a weather page showing a map of the United States. Why would the London Times have the weather for the United States instead of Great Britain?

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: Austin is in a different position in his frozen state in this film than he was in the first film when he was unfrozen.

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)


Factual error: Through most of the film, a lot of the cars used are left hand drive, while in the UK cars are right hand drive. While left hand drive cars are occasionally seen in the UK, they're very few and far between.

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 playing chess with Ivana, his necklace symbol keeps switching sides, yet he clearly isn't jolting around enough for it to move in this way.

Continuity mistake: After Austin and Felicity have crossed the street in London and have sat down at the cafe, where Burt and Elvis are playing, Felicity has a red handbag with her. She places the bag on the table whilst her and Austin talk about the future. When Austin says "care to dance" the bag is still on the table. They both go to dance, and the table is taken away by a woman towards the edge of the screen. The scene goes back to Austin and Felicity dancing for a second. The woman can now be seen with two chairs, but no table or red handbag.

Factual error: The song American Woman by The Guess Who is being played at the party when Austin goes back to 1969. Cool song, but it wasn't released until 1970.

Dr. Evil: You're not quite evil enough. You're semi-evil. You're quasi-evil. You're the margarine of evil. You're the Diet Coke of evil. Just one calorie, not evil enough.
