* ArtisticLicenseCars: In the opening, Max hijacks Agent Lloyd's FBI-issued truck and pilots it remotely, locking out all the controls. This is not physically possible as the controls are all mechanical, not electronic.[[note]]Specifically, a cable-driven throttle, a mechanical cable linkage between the transmission and gear selector, and the steering column.[[/note]]

* DirtyCop: Implied with Sophie's ex-husband Zacharias. While it doesn't seem that he's on the take from Moret, he does seem willing to turn a blind eye to his misdeeds.

Added DiffLines:

* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench: Moret admits to Max that he's an American, but adopted a French pronunciation of his name, as well as an accent mark over the "e", to make himself seem more mysterious and dangerous.
* MayDecemberRomance: Was Sophie and Zacharias (she's 25 years his junior). A slighter version with Lola and Max, who is 14 years her senior.
