When Rachel and Peik Lin are first going to Nick's family's home, and can't seem to find it, Peik remarks it's like they are in a jungle. She says they are in the middle of nowhere. Security shows up and checks them out. When Peik asks them if they know where the Young house is the shot changes from the car interior to immediately in front of it. They are literally feet from the gate. Hardly in the middle of nowhere.
There's a mid-credit scene in which Astrid exchanges glances with a man.
In Australia, the film was passed uncut with an M rating for coarse language. The filmmakers then opted to reduce the language in order to obtain a PG classification. For the home video release the film was returned to its uncut M rating.
