* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Did you know eagles could hover in midair like hummingbirds? According to WordOfGod "Global warming has caused them to be mutant, toxic, and flammable. That's why, when they take a kamikaze drive, they explode, and when they drop [[{{Squick}} bird fluid]] on some of the cast, they get burned." Genetics and evolution don't work that way outside of ''{{ComicBook/X-Men}}''. There's also the spontaneous combustion. Even bombardier beetles don't explode when falling. They also [[StockSoundEffects sound like Stuka bombers]] when they dive, which is a fairly impressive biological feat.

** The actress playing Nathalie is plenty attractive enough to play a model (in fact, Whitney Moore ''is'' a model, as is Alan Bagh (who plays Rod), but for someone who just landed a Victoria's Secret gig no one seems to have any confidence in the future of her career.

(Judging by Mom, however, this may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that she might lose her looks earlier than she'd like.)

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: A rare heroic case. The heroes, including a supposed soldier, fire hundreds of rounds at birds and rarely hit any of them.

* ActingUnnatural: An unintentional example - early in the movie, Alan Bagh, who plays Rod, was [[PerformanceAnxiety hyperconscious of the camera being on him]] and apparently couldn't walk naturally on camera and ends up looking like he's made of wood. Then he starts talking, and it become apparent that everything about him is wooden.

** The gas station attendant charged $100 for a gallon of gasoline. The fact that Rod understood what he said is the only proof we have that the man was speaking English.

* StalkingIsLove: Most models aren't charmed by ''tech salesmen'' following them around. Granted, Bagh's bad acting makes him seem creepier than he might be, but his behavior is still odd. And the conversation he has with her is about as interesting as dry toast.
