Factual error: This film takes place in 1987, but when Norm Gunderson is talking to Marge about his paintings, he mentions a 29 cent stamp. 29 cent stamps weren't introduced until 1991.
Trivia: The movie wasn't based on a true story. The Coen brothers just threw that in for whatever reason.
Question: I've heard that the kidnappers names are Carl and Gaear. Where in the film is this fact established?
