Trivia: The content of the email received by Austin while he is demonstrating the internet is 'A new ATM card will be sent to you by Fed-Ex because your account has ben compromised by an unknown hacker who obtained your PIN Number while you were purchasing an MP3 Player on E-Bay. Sincerely, Your Bank.' This was included because Mike Myers really did have his bank account compromised shortly before filming. (00:38:37)
Trivia: The full list of Austin's 'Things To Do Before I Die' are: 1. Become International Man of Mystery, 2. Save World from Certain Doom, 3. Find True Love, 4. Go To Outer Space, 5. Travel Through Time, Backward and Forward, 6. Be Cryogenically Frozen, 7. Catch Dr. Evil in the First Act, 8. Threesome with Japanese Twins, 9. Earn Daddy's Respect. When we see the list all are scored out apart from the last two.
Trivia: The scene where Michael Caine and Mike Myers are speaking in cockney accents is reminiscent of a scene from "The Man Who would Be King" where Michael Caine's and Sean Connery are speaking in thick accents about a person they knew in the past. The story is somewhat hard to discern due to Caine's thick Cockney accent and Connery's Scottish accent.Scott215
Trivia: Mike Myers has stated that he would love to do a fourth film in the Austin Powers series, although as of 2018, a fourth film has not been released. Myers stated that after the death of co-star Verne Troyer in 2018, he would like to include a tribute to Troyer in a potential fourth film, should it ever be made.TedStixon
Trivia: MGM, the company that releases the James Bond films, successfully halted the release of posters and promotional materials for this film a few months before release, arguing that the Austin Powers series was profiting off the James Bond name. This is despite the fact that parodies such as Austin Powers are traditionally protected by copyright law. MGM and New Line (the company that produced "Austin Powers") eventually settled their differences when New Line agreed to attach trailers for the next Bond film ("Die Another Day") to this movie.TedStixon
Trivia: The prior film was released the same year as Star Wars: Episode I. Early trailers for that movie had the humorous tagline "If you see one movie this year... see Star Wars! But if you see two movies, see Austin Powers!" As a nod to that, trailers for this film (which was released the same year as Star Wars: Episode II) stated "If you see one movie this year, see Austin Powers! If you see two movies... see Austin Powers again!"TedStixon
