* CaliforniaDoubling: New Yorkers will recognize some shots as having been filmed in the city, however the subway cars, tunnels, and stations are clearly not in New York. Much of the action takes place on a car that explicitly says "GREEN LINE" inside. New York does have subway lines colored green, but all routes are identified by their letter or number, rather than the color.

* AnAesop: Debatable, but it certainly seems to be influenced by Barker's vegetarianism, and dislike for New York City. You can easily enjoy it without caring about either of these things, though.
