According to Chris Pratt, shooting this movie helped him come to terms with his father's death. Although he passed away while Pratt was filming Jurassic World (2015) in 2014, the actor didn't really get a chance to deal with the death at the time because he was busy filming and wanted to keep the rest of the cast's spirits up. For a film that director James Gunn has described as a "story about fathers", Pratt was able to open up old wounds that had been healing for some time, and acknowledge the fact that there are some wounds that cannot ever be completely healed, such as the death of a parent.
There's a girl in this harbor town / And she works layin' whiskey down / They say, Brandy, fetch another round / She serves them whiskey and wine / The sailors say, Brandy, you're a fine girl.
(at around 21 mins) When Peter's ship is crashing into the forest on Berhert, Drax is still outside, being pulled along on a tether. When the ship hits the trees, it slows down. If Drax's speed remains constant, he should be pulled closer to the ship, perhaps even crashing into the cargo hold, yet the tether remains fully stretched (so much so that it eventually breaks off). This is because Drax also slows down by hitting the trees himself and due to air resistance.
The "no animals were harmed" disclaimer in the closing credits starts off as "I am Groot," then changes to "No raccoons or tree creatures were harmed during the making of this feature. The same cannot be said for handlers of said raccoons and tree creatures."
