Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. - Hills in Downtown London?
Go to the scene were Austin and Felicity are walking around London to the music of "I'm a Believer". If you look at the top of the screen when Austin and Felicity cross the street, right before the music scene with Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello, you will see some of the hills in California. They are supposed to be in London, which has no hills like this. Somebody should have caught this.

I just thought everyone would find it interesting that the line about southern CA and London wasn't in the script, Mike Myers just ad-libbed it in.

I agree that this is probably a slip-up, but not exactly worthy of a 9 out of 10. The movie makes light of the fact that they are obviously not in London a couple of times in the movie. After Felicity and Austin leave his pad in Felicity's car, they drive past a sign that points the way to the 'English Countryside'-which in and of itself was a joke. The terrain they drive through is rocky and somewhat mountainous; to my knowledge, there is no terrain like this in southern England, near London. This becomes even more obvious when Austin abruptly declares how amazing it is that England is in no way like southern California. So the fact that the movie was obviously shot in California is itself a joke within the movie.

In the part of the movie right before "Mustafa's Questioning", Austin says "It's amazing how England looks in now way like southern California".

The hills were put in as a joke, this is an Easter Egg, not a slip-up.

Ummm somebody said that there are hills in the one scene. I think the people know this because before that Austin says "Isn't it amazing how London looks in no way like Southeren California."

actually...ppl did catch on to it. Austin Powers 2, was recorded and taped IN Los Angeles, California. When he first is in the car with Felicity, he makes a "joke", by saying, "You know, London looks in no way like southern california." so ppl DID catch on, and they KNEW that it was in CA. So its not nessacarily a slipup. thought you'd like to know that. Cuz if I remeber correctly, Austin Powers is a Universal film, which most likely is in reference to the joke, and was probably filmed in Universal Studies Hollywood. =P

If you listen to the Mike Myers on the DVD version, they were kinda mad they included the hill in the shot because they spent so much money on making an realistic 60's London.

This is not a Universal movie. It is a New Line movie.
