Penelope tells everyone she is 22 years old and her passport shows a birth date in November 1993, which is consistent with her being 22 in 2015. Later, the police state that Penelope is actually only 17. However, no issue is raised about her having a fraudulent passport (which is a serious matter) and she is allowed to fly home seemingly without penalty. Not even a scolding.
The initial credits have the roles and names on yellow shapes (like small mosaic pieces) on a black background, before reverting to more traditional lists.
