After Jenna says she'd like to have a relationship in her life like James Franco
does with Kimiko, his anime human pillow-girl, Franco exclaims, lovingly, "Kimiko-tan!". The Japanese language uses honorific suffixes with people's names, and "-tan" is a less common, baby-talk version of "-chan," a particle added to the names of children and loved ones. By using "-tan", a rather obscure Japanese particle signifying endearment, Franco's character signifies that he is even more into the extreme anime-fan culture than the average anime fan. See more
When Jack and Kenneth are listening to the voicemail, it says the dates are Thursday, December 30th and Friday, January 1st. Aside from the fact that December 30th was a Wednesday in 2009 (when the message would have been left), December has 31 days, so one was missed as there are no days between Thursday and Friday.
