Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Continuity mistake: There is a scene when Austin and Felicity spend a day on the town, go back to Austin's shag pad, then separate for the night. The next day they are back in the same exact clothes as yesterday (after a clothes change piece the night before).

Continuity mistake: After Felicity says to Austin, "Don't worry about me, you have to save the world", smoke starts to fill up the glass case she is trapped in(this is the scene in Dr. Evil's moon base). When Austin starts shooting the henchmen, Felicity's glass case isn't filled with any smoke.

Factual error: During the first joke about the shape of Dr. Evil's rocket, we see Willie Nelson. But he looks the same as he does today, when he should be thirty years younger.

Continuity mistake: When Austin goes after Felicity he parks his car by a crosswalk. His car changes from being parked on the crosswalk, to being parked beside the crosswalk. (00:49:40)


Audio problem: When Fat Bastard bursts through Austin's apartment door, he pulls a revolver out of a box. When he does, the sound of the hammer cocking is heard, but he never cocks the hammer. It stays down for the entire scene.


Continuity mistake: When Austin holds the Kamasutra sometimes it's next to his chest or not and the pocket of his silk robe is visible or not, depending on the shot.


Continuity mistake: When the Frau introduces Unibrow, there are two Starbucks employees behind them working the right end of the counter. Cut to Unibrow and the Starbucks employees have disappeared.


Revealing mistake: When Austin pounds on the glass tube, it's easy to see they are three separate panels of glass, rather than being sealed. Therefore, the gas inside could have escaped.

Continuity mistake: When introduced, Mini Me is standing behind the white screen, he's posed with his right hand up, all the way to the reveal. When the screen slides open, his arm is down.

Movie Nut

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)


Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Dr. Evil tells Austin that he is his father, if you look closely at the lower left of Dr. Evil's helmet, there is the reflection of a stagehand standing by one of the windows.(There are many reflections on his helmet, so you may want to pause it so you can look around for it.)

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 Austin and Mini Me are fighting Mini Me hocks a loogie in Austin's face. The spit disappears almost immediately but we never see Austin wipe it away.

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)

Deliberate mistake: When Austin is playing chess with Ivana, the pieces have been moved in impossible positions throughout their few moves.

Continuity mistake: In the whole movie, Dr. Evil's head switches from completely bald, to shaven. Also, in the scene when Austin is in his blue jumper in The Allan Parsons Project's main chamber, you can clearly see Dr. Evil's stand in and he's about 6 inches taller.

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)

Continuity mistake: When Austin has just come back from the future and has been in the party with all the shooting, he and Felicity jump in the car in the middle of the night. One second later there's a back shot inside the car and it's dawn light. Two seconds afterwards they're driving down the road and it's broad daylight. Furthermore, the light changes from sunny, to a bit cloudy in each shot.


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.

Question: So did Frau convert to lesbianism through the time after being straight with Dr. Evil?

Answer: It appears so since she was with Dr. Evil in 1969 and was with Unibrow (the female golfer) in the present time. She does say (after the time with Dr. Evil), that she would never love another man again - to which he replies - "That's right", referring, of course, to her future sexual preferences.
