Goofs

The baron used his serfs for medical experiments in 1814. Serfdom was abolished in Switzerland in 1798, with the introduction of the Helvetic Republic. In the canton Graubünden, where the film is set, it had already virtually ceased to exist in the 16th century. See more »

Josh: Wait, you mean Delaware, I thought that was dead.
Lockhart: That's resurrected, we need to clean up the Reynolds account in case those fucks at AML decide to do their job.

Unagi

Be patient with unagi. It gets better with some nudity and love making later in the film. They did confuse punk rockers with heavy metallers. It is not difficult to tell these people apart so I am not sure why no one on the set told the director.
