I'd been picking up some buzz on this one, and it sounded intriguing. Last night, I watched a "making of" documentary, and most of my misgivings were eased--but others were added.

The doc showed two of the gags in the movie. The first has the young hero talking to a girl he has found hiding in his mother's attic. He realizes what she is and why she is hiding. The exchange goes something like this:
SHE: What am I? Say it!
HE: A Jew.
Ha ha. Except, they'd be speaking German, wouldn't they? So he would have said something like (phonetically) "ein yuden", or just "yuden". Which sounds nothing like a sneeze.
Later, the Sam Rockwell character is raging at his men because he sent them out to get dogs, and they came back with... German shepherds. Men.
Ha ha. Except, German Shepherds are not called that in Germany. They're called, in German, "sheepdogs".
I now fear the whole movie will be peppered with stuff like this, and constantly pulling me out of the plot.
