  • Dawson Casting: Inverted. The actors look about the right age for their characters at the start of the film, but as a few years pass and they become young parents it becomes very clear that they're at least five years younger than their characters.
  • Fake American: Canadian actress Rachel McAdams plays the American Mary.
  • Fake Brit: Tim is played by Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson who delivers a very convincing English accent. Charlotte is also played by Australian Margot Robbie.
