* UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}: Unlike many mainstream movies set in Toronto which omit specifying a particular city(or even that they're outside of the US), Toronto is actively discussed throughout the film and numerous landmarks such as the CN Tower and Red Rocket streetcars are shown.

* PunnyName: Brian O'Blivion? Barry Convex? Is this a comedy? '''No.''' Possibly a ShoutOut to ThomasPynchon. {{Justified}} in the first instance because Brian O'Blivion has explicitly renamed himself.

* CanadaDoesNotExist: {{Averted}}. To the untrained eye there is nothing distinctively Canadian about the locations, and Nicki Brand is played by the openly American Debbie Harry, but:
** Nicki Brand's radio show is stated to come from Toronto.
** The final scene takes place on a boat bearing a sign saying [[AC: Condemned By The Toronto Harbour Authority]].
