Continuity mistake: When Fat Bastard explodes through Austin Powers' bedroom door, you can see where his right arm was meant to break through, but didn't. The piece of the door is shown still intact for a moment or two, but with the outline of his arm surrounding it. It disappears in the very next shot of the door only a second later.

Babe (1995)

Trivia: When James Cromwell was handed the screenplay for Babe, he thumbed through it to see how many lines he had. He saw that he didn't have that many, he decided that he would do it as a nice easy film. What he didn't realize was that he would have more screen time in this film than any of his previous films, just not that many lines.

Other mistake: When Sugar and Josephine are talking on the telephone, Sugar's eyes are moving backwards and forwards, obviously reading from a cue-card.
