Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Austin Powers Trilogy
Blofeld. Thanks for playing.
Madonna. The song was 'Beautiful Stranger'.
Yes. It belongs to Nigel, but Austin does drive it.
Mindy Sterling. She looks so different in real life, not all evil!
|What did Austin say Felicity would have needed to have sex with Fat Bastard? (This is cut from some videos.)||'Austin Powers' - All Three
an elaborate set of pulleys. For some reason this was cut from some videos, including mine, which is a little annoying, but it did happen in the movie!
All animals deserve a warm meal. This is before he is informed that they couldn't get sharks, but they do have seabass.
Ill tempered mutated seabass. This was one very comedic moment!
f. NO - it is just Ming Tea. This is actually Mike Myers' band.
29 / 30. Scott is obviously not this old! Especially as in the first film they say he was 'created' a few years after Dr. Evil was frozen, but with being conceived in 1969 this cannot be true. Two options are given, as exact month can't be sure.
11th November 1967. This is shown in the second movie. You need to be VERY eagle eyed!
Danger. This is because it says on his box of personal belongings 'Danger Powers'.
|Here is an interesting bit of info: Dr. Evil's trademark is his extended pinky. What is the name of the muscle that extends the pinky?||"Austin Powers" Trilogy Knowledge
minimi. "The extensor digiti minimi is the muscle that extends the pinky." (From Imdb.com.)
explosives. They fall out of the bag when the guards arrest them.
Vanilla Ice. There were two other people seen frozen beside Vanilla Ice, Evil Knievel and Gary Coleman.
Chloe. She was a 15-year-old French web-footed girl.
Twister. He says this when he is sumo wrestling, right before he twists his opponent's testicles.
The question mark. Dr. Evil says: "My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims, like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy - the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament."
A running shoe. In one of the funniest scenes in the whole first movie, Austin sees how the latest footwear has developed by squeezing the tongue of a running shoe.
7 hours. Myers said, "Eighty pounds of fat. I sweated so much, and I'm not good with enclosed spaces. Part of the latex had sulfur in it. They tried to make it not stink with perfume and deodorant and baby powder, and that just made it stink worse. By the end of the day, I was Pepe Le Pew. I don't think I'd do it again."
Mike McDonald. In "International Man of Mystery" he was the guard who got flattened by a steamroller. In "The Spy Who Shagged Me" he was the NATO guard who tuned in to "Jerry Springer," and in "Goldmember" he was a royal guard.
|Now a test of your perception: What continent is most frequently visible on Dr. Evil's globe of the world in his underground lair in "International Man of Mystery"?||The "Austin Powers" Trilogy
Africa. OK, that was probably too subtle. Maybe you've learned something from this.
Chef. This is stated on the audio commentary of the "Goldmember" DVD, where Mike Myers tells us that Mr. Roboto is, in reality, a master teppinyaki chef, a form of Japanese cooking. His real name is Nobu Matsuhisha.
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. Ming Tea actually preceded the "Austin Powers" series, and was where Mike Myers first developed the character of Austin Powers. Ming Tea made their movie debut in the closing credits of "Man of Mystery", playing their song "BBC". The only proof is the name "Ming Tea" printed on the bass drum skin.
|Rob Lowe appeared in the second (and, briefly, the third) "Austin Powers" movies as the young Number #2. What role did he have in the first movie, if any?||The "Austin Powers" Trilogy
Friend of John Smith. Rob appears in the scene at Hooters, where a party of guys is waiting for their friend John Smith, because it is his stag party. Rob also takes the phone call about John's untimely decapitation by an ill-tempered, mutated sea-bass.
|Now some questions on the series as a whole. In "International Man of Mystery", a guard at Virtucon is run over by a steam roller. Later, in "Austin Powers in Goldmember", the same actor appears again. What role does he play?||The "Austin Powers" Trilogy
Queen's guard holding the medals at the knighting ceremony. It took me a while to realize from where I knew this actor, whose name is Michael McDonald. He is one example of this series' habit of using the same actors. McDonald also appears in "The Spy Who Shagged Me" as a NATO officer monitoring "the Kreplakistani situation".
Two large red balls. There is no apparent reason for this in the movie, but in the audio commentary on the DVD version, Mike Myers suggests that the sub, in the shape of Dr. Evil, is rather 'anatomically correct'. Use your imagination.
E Diddy. Mike Myers and Jay Roach (director of the "Austin Powers" series) wanted Dr. Evil to be referred to this in the film, but were unable to do so due because they were unable to get P. Diddy to agree.
|During the scene in which Austin attacks a newly-defected Mini-Me, what does Mini-Me do which results in a flashback to "The Spy Who Shagged Me"?||The "Austin Powers" Trilogy
Made a peace sign. Austin and Mini-Me have had two fight scenes since Mini-Me arrived, but I doubt if we'll see any more, now that the two are on the same side. On another note, Verne Troyer, the man who plays Mini-Me, is also a stuntman, and was pushing Jay Roach to let him be in the bag whilst being flung around by Austin. Jay preferred to use a robotic dummy.
Austinpussy. This movie provided a very neat opening and conclusion for the actual film, and contained several major cameos, including John Travolta as Goldmember, Kevin Spacey as Dr. Evil, and Danny DeVito as Mini-Me.
|As the dancing sequence begins in the opening scene of the movie, what two Hollywood celebrities appear to do flip-flops (for lack of a better phrase) past Austin and the assembled crew/dancers?||The "Austin Powers" Trilogy
Steven Spielberg and film crew. All these stars were in the opening scene, as part of the 'movie-within-a-movie' that was being made.
