Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)

Ending / spoiler

(2 votes)

Elvis and JFK battle the mummy in the middle of the night, with JFK in an electric wheelchair and Elvis wielding a makeshift flamethrower. JFK is knocked out of his wheelchair by the mummy and is about to have his soul sucked. Elvis hops in the wheelchair, zooms into the mummy to save JFK, and damages the flamethrower, getting a large gash in his abdomen in the process. JFK dies from a heart attack. Instead Elvis throws the gasoline on him and then throws a lighter at him, killing Bubba. Elvis lays on a hill near the river bank, dying from the blood loss from the gash. He talks in his mind about how he doesn't fear death knowing that he's saved all of the senior citizens' soul, and because he knows his soul will go onto Heaven. With a final "Thank you, thank you very much," he passes.


Revealing mistake: When the coroners are taking Kemosabe's body to the hearse, the one who falls over the porch wall is wearing calf padding which can be seen bulging under his pant leg before he falls.

Elvis: Shitty pictures man. Every single one.

More quotes from Bubba Ho-Tep

Question: When Elvis trades places with Sebastian Haff, his limo plate is AZN-700. Later when he is driving Haff's car, the plate is the same. Obviously two cars with different owners can't have the same plates, so it's probably a reference of some sort. Anyone know if that's the case, and if so, what?

Chosen answer: There's no significance I can find anywhere for the number "AZN-700" - it's just a fake plate they used twice due to the limited budget, and its repeated use is a mistake.
