Plunkett & Macleane picture

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Liv Tyler's character informs another character that they suffer from halitosis. The film is set in the 1700's, and the condition of halitosis was invented in the 1930's as a method of selling fragrances and deoderants. Therefore, the condition she refers to doesn't even exist at that time.
