* OlderThanTheyThink: The disco remix of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony in ''Goldmember'' was not created for the film as some younger viewers initially thought. It was actually a song from the era, "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy. The song has since gotten a second life, thanks to this movie and being featured in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.

** Also, the bigger sequels relied heavily on broad slapstick, body humor, DontExplainTheJoke and celebrity cameos, aspects not all that present in the original, which is a direct spoof of 60s spy movies in the same way a movie like ''WalkHard'' is a music biopic spoof. As a result, the more you know about James Bond tropes and films of that ilk, the funnier ''International Man of Mystery'' is, as it's quite clear through the production notes and commentary that Myers and his crew are vastly knowledgable about that culture and root much of the film's humor in it.

* ValuesDissonance: The first movie gets a number of jokes about TheSixties and TheNineties being different decades with different social mores. Austin ends up declaring that the actual ''acts'' of liberal drug use and sex of the sixties wasn't just about liberal drug use and sex for the sake of having those things, it was about freedom, and expressing and enjoying that freedom, a spirit that lives on strong in the nineties.
