Question: Does Chip really have as many siblings as there are cups in the kitchen? Seems a bit too many, and also they aren't seen as real children at the end of the movie.

Chosen answer: The servants in the castle are transformed into enchanted objects because of the spell, but there are still plenty of other objects in the castle which were not originally people.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit picture

Question: Does "pattycake" also mean something sexual? We were obviously at first supposed to think Jessica and Acme had sex, but if they were, why would she say "pattycake" and why does Maroon say "You're not the first guy whose wife went pattycake on him"? Am I missing out on something?

raph

Chosen answer: According to the director, Pattycake is the toon equivalent to sex.

The Lego Batman Movie picture

Question: When Batman and Robin are asked to get out of the prison, they run up the prison floor by floor. And we can see some locked villains. All their cell numbers are either 1091 or 1092. Is it an Easter Egg or a goof?

Lee Lap Fung

Answer: Goof.

Monsters, Inc. picture

Question: Why does Sully get surprised at the end of the movie when he sees Boo?

Chosen answer: He's not as much surprised as he is pleased to see her. She's going to be a little older than when he last saw her because it took Mike so long to rebuild the door. So if he's surprised, it may be at how much she's grown in that time period.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted picture

Question: How come Alex's parents or any other character from the last movie don't make, at least, a small appearance in this movie? I know that Bernie Mac, who voiced Zuba, is dead, but can somebody explain Zuba and Florrie's fate?

Answer: They don't make an appearance because they were irrelevant to the story. The decision to go back home would have been made with or without any character introduced in the previous movie, so they were simply not included. Alex's parents would have continued to live in Africa after Alex and the others left.

The Book of Life picture

Question: When Manolo and Joaquin start fighting the wild boar, General Posada only sees Joaquin confronting the boar before he is knocked unconscious. Thus, he never sees Manolo fighting the boar like a matador. When the general recovers, he believes Joaquin defeated the boar and not Manolo. Despite the townsfolk being impressed by Manolo's action, why does no one, including the nun who thanks Manolo for saving her life, speak up and tell the general what actually happened? Why don't they confirm to the general that Manolo fought and defeated the boar?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: There was probably too much panic from the rampaging animals.

Aladdin picture

Question: What does Aladdin mean when he says: "Look at that Abu, it's not everyday you see a horse with two rear ends."?

Chosen answer: Aladdin is referring to the person riding the horse as being a "horse's ass" in the way he is acting, thus the horse the person was riding on has two rear ends, his own and the rider.

Tangled picture

Question: In the scene of Mother Gothel stabbing Eugene, is it possible for him to die that fast from that wound?

Chosen answer: All she had to do was nick the right blood vessel, and he could have died much sooner. So, yes, it's possible for him to have died that fast. We have to assume the lack of blood was just Disney toning things down and not representative of the actual severity of the wound. If appearances counted for anything at all in the world of Disney, there'd be no such thing as a mortal wound.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox picture

Question: In the altered timeline, Flash initially could not travel through time because there was another speedster. How was he able to travel through time in the original timeline, when Zoom was alive there as well?

Chosen answer: Flash couldn't travel through time later in the movie not because Zoom was alive but because Zoom was also tapping into the Speed Force, preventing Flash from gathering enough of the Speed Force to break the Time Barrier. When Flash originally went back in time it's likely because Zoom was in custody, therefore not tapping into the Speed Force at that time.

Answer: Batman kills Zoom so the Flash could use the speed force.

The Prince of Egypt picture

Question: The Queen of Egypt (I'm pretty sure her name is Tuya, but is she ever named in the film?) is portrayed as being a kind person almost every time she appears, but in the very beginning there is a moment I don't understand. When she's holding baby Moses, she throws dirty looks at the two servant girls who are with her, for seemingly no reason. What gives?

Chosen answer: The Queen's name is never mentioned. Onto your other question she gives the stern look to "suggest" to the slave girls that they are to remain silent on where Moses came from.
