* HeyItsThatPlace: The ferry is obviously a BC Ferry, markings aside, to anyone familiar with the BC Ferry system. The scenery during the ferry ride will also be very familiar to habitual BC Ferry riders.
** The scenes in Victoria, especially Fan Tan Alley.
** The chasing motorcycle cop radios he's in pursuit through Fan Tan Alley.

Added DiffLines:

* WitnessProtection: The film starts with Rick's cover being blown by his ex-girlfriend. After 15 years of hiding and several different identities. The title means that if he touches any of his previous lives, he may die like a bird that touches two live wires.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: the "DETROIT TO RACINE" ferry. Putting aside the [[CaliforniaDoubling actual location of the shoot]], Detroit is on the wrong side of Michigan for such a ferry to even be practical, while Racine doesn't even have a dock capable of handling such a ferry.
