Goofs

Cary's "discovery" that since Chen is Taiwanese, he would sign his surname first, rather than 'Chen,' is nonsensical. Chinese language surnames are typically one syllable, while given names are typically two syllables. Further, 'Chen' is the most popular surname in Taiwan (ranked #1 every year from 1994-2012). Therefore, it is almost certain that 'Chen' is the character's surname and 'Jin-Pyn' is his given name. In addition, when living in cultures that don't use a family-first ordering, many people sign their given names before their surnames. The order of Chen's name should have no bearing on the case.

He did sign his surname first!

Is it just me, or is it ridiculous that the whole plot is based on Cary mixing up Chinese surname and first name? Chen is his last name, so he did sign his last name first.........
