Ferrets are usually as quiet as rabbits. When they get excited, they often do a "happy dance" and make sounds very similar to that heard in the movie. However, the "whining" sounds from the ferret behind the closed door are not normal.

When Polly and Reuben are arguing in the boat, equipment can be seen reflected in the television on the wall to the left of Polly. This cannot be Reuben because he is completely opposite of Polly at the time.

Errors in geography

Factual errors 

Polly asks Rueben if he wants some more "bulgoki". Then she hand's him something green and leafy. This is done with the implication that it is more Indian food. Bulgoki is a Korean marinade traditionally used with rib meat and served with rice.
