- Fake Brit: Gunther Glick, the so-called "British" journalist, has speech and thoughts riddled with Americanisms such as "gas" and "anchormen" (a real Brit would say "petrol" and "presenters" respectively); at one point he even likens himself to Dan Rather, who is almost unknown in Britain. (Again, if he were really British he would have likened himself to Trevor McDonald, though there's a vague handwave about him hanging around American news media for too long.)
- Fake Irish: Irishman Camerlengo Patrick McKenna is played by the Scottish Ewan McGregor.
- Fake Nationality: The film has quite a dose. The Israeli Ayelet Zurer played Vittoria Vetra, who is Italian. Commander Richter and Lieutenant Chartrand, both members of the Swiss Guards, are played by the Swedish Stellan Skarsgård and the Danish Thure Lindhardt, respectively.
