Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. - Two More Slip-Ups
Slip-up Number 1: As you know, in the first movie , Austin Powers had his teeth fixed towards the end of the movie (1997). In the second movie when he goes back to 1969, his teeth are messed up again, since he wouldn't have gotten them fixed for another 28 years. At the end of the movie, when he goes back to 1999 again, his teeth are still messed up, even though he had them fixed two years before (in 1997).
Slip-up Number 2: When Austin Powers is in his Volkswagon Beetle time machine, the destination pad,(where the year is punched in), already says 1969, very dimly, before it's punched in.

I got news for you people: The whole "problem" with Austin going back to 1969 and the fact that there are two of him is explained before he goes back! Listen to him ask about it, he says: "Wait a tick! Basil, if I travel back to 1969 and I was frozen in 1967, presumably, I could go visit my frozen self. BUT, if I am still frozen in 1967, how could I have been unfrozen in the 90s and traveled back to oh-no, I've gone cross-eyed." Then Basil says: "I suggest you don't worry about this sort of thing and just enjoy yourself." Then he looks at the camera and says: "That goes for you all too." Then Austin looks at the camera too, and says: "Yes." then smiles. I cannot believe that none of you realize that was the whole point of the joke, to setup any questions like "How could he have done this?" or "Why did that happen?"!!!!

As an Austin Powers fanatic, I must agree that he was quite notorious for his nasty teeth. However, I fail to see the logic behind the concept that his teeth were not perfect in 1969, thus they were not perfect when he traveled BACK to 1969. When he goes to Dr. Evil's moon-base, "past-Austin" and "Austin-from-10-minutes-from-now" meet each other. They talk. They're two separate people, so why should one develop the characteristics of the other just because he's in the other's time? And besides, with that logic, Scott could never have traveled back in time to talk to his dad; he didn't even exist in 1969. In fact, Frau had just discovered that "she's late." But, of course, as I keep telling other nitpicky commentators: the movie is Austin Powers. It's creators' main concern was to be funny, not consistent with the plot.

It doesn't make sense at all. Austin's teeth were perfect in 1999 and when he went back to 1969 his teeth should have been perfect too because it is the same Austin as in 1999. Remember the Austin with bad teeth was frozen in the chamber.

Petra, I agree with what you're saying and all up to the part where you say Scott couldn't go back in time to see his dad because he wasn't born yet. If that is true then how could Austin go back in time to visit his frozen self. That makes 2 of him correct? The same goes for Scott. Frau has just said that she is "late" so Scott is obviously just starting out. 2 of Austin, 2 of Scott.

slip up 2: if u look at the screens for clocks and such that have numbers made up like that...u r going to see the lines that make up the numbers...it is not obvious as 1969, but more as the lines that make up possible numbers...

KenDaLL WoLf: I think you missed the entire point of slip-up #1. All you did was state the obvious in saying that Austin Powers is notorious for his nasty teeth. WE KNOW THAT! The slip-up is saying that he got his nasty teeth fixed in 1997, went back to 1969, where they were nasty again (because they hadn't been fixed yet), then in 1999 they were nasty again, when they SHOULD have been fixed!

Slipup Two:- When you wire up a digital display (such as the one on the time machine) each section is wred up individualy. Wouldnt it be easier just to wire each digit seperately. Wouldnt that be easier?

And hey, it's a time machine, isn't it? Why wouldn't it be able to tell the future?
