* ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange: The Portuguese dub was always stated to take place in Portugal, with Fowler's references to the RAF being changed to FAP[[note]][[IThoughtItMeant It means "Portuguese Air Force", ]][[FreudWasRight you perverts]][[/note]] and Rocky, despite still being American, says he came there [[BlatantLies for the lovely latin chicks]]. And yet, all the characters have their original names and the text in the movie is clearly all in English, with some of it [[ReadingForeignSignsOutLoud being read out loud]]. Then again, [[JustifiedTrope there's not much they could do about that last one]].
