Factual error: At the start of the final scene where Jason is looking down at the scooter shop you can distinctly hear the calls of a Pacific bottle nose dolphin. This species of dolphin is not found anywhere in the Aegean or Mediterranean sea. Also from where Jason was standing you would not hear that type of call.

Audio problem: When The Professor is driving in the BMW, you can hear the transmission engage the next gear before he is seen completing the gear change. Shortly thereafter, you hear another gear change, but The Professor's hands are nowhere near the shifter (he's reading his orders on his cellphone).
