The Majestic (2001)

Question: Why don't we see Calvin stand up to his abusive father and why does he abuse him?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Because the movie isn't about Calvin, but Meg and her family. Seeing Calvin stand up to his father would be going off on a tangent. As for the reason for the abuse, who can say? Some people are just jerks.

Brian Katcher

Question: Are Meg and Veronica friends at the end of the movie?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: No, but with Meg understanding Veronica's self-image issues and Veronica seeing that popular boy Calvin obviously thought highly of Meg, maybe they won't be so antagonistic to each other.

Brian Katcher

Question: When Meg returns with her father, did she still have to write apology letters to Principal Jenkins and Veronica?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: With Meg's father returning after four years, her mother probably had other things on her mind than Meg's punishment. But with all Meg had learned about kindness and love, she might have decided to write the letters anyway.

Brian Katcher

Family Guy (1999)

Show generally

Question: Why does the show on occasion mention that it never won an Emmy when it's thus far received 10 nominations and 3 wins?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: In the context, when talking about "Family Guy" winning an Emmy, it's about winning based on the merits of show itself, not just the work put into making the show. The Emmys "Family Guy" has won are for "outstanding voice over", "achievement in animation", or "sound mixing." Whereas, shows like "Modern Family" won Emmys for Outstanding..."comedy series", "lead actor", "supporting actor/actress", "writing", and "directing." There was a joke in the episode about what they were doing was so bad they owe back an Emmy, acknowledging they have won Emmys, just not the ones they're striving for.

Ferdinand (2017)

Question: Ferdinand had his name since birth when he is being raised at the bull camp. But he is later adopted by Nina and Juan who also name him Ferdinand. How do they know that his name is Ferdinand? He was not wearing any identification tags and he couldn't speak to the humans to tell them this.

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: It's a very common Hispanic name, so probably just a coincidence that Nina and Juan happened to name him that.

It (2017)

Question: While we see Henry Bowers and his gang get their comeuppance by the end of the film, why couldn't the same thing happen to the girls who bully Beverly?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: There's no real reason. Sometimes people who do bad things get away with it.

Question: How is it that Meg and Charles' mother has not noticed that her children were gone?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Just like in the book, the children travelled in time as well as space. From the mother's perspective, they were only gone for a short while.

Brian Katcher

Question: I get that Meg is in trouble for hitting Veronica in the face with a basketball, but why isn't Veronica in trouble for leaving a mean note on Meg's locker and calling her brother crazy?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Could be a matter of severity. Hitting someone in the face with a basketball could result in someone being permanently injured or disfigured, possibly even blinded. Leaving mean notes and calling someone crazy is far less serious and might not warrant being punished other than a mild reprimand.

Peter Rabbit (2018)

Question: How is it that Thomas can understand what the rabbits are saying as shown in the make-up scene and no other human can?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Question: So, where do P.T. Barnum, Charity, and their daughters live by the end of the movie? Do they get their mansion back?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: It doesn't tell.

It (2017)

Question: Why is Beverly accused by the whole town of being promiscuous?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Kids are vicious and make up rumors about eachother. Given she obviously has some hangups and acts awkwardly around others due to her sexually abusive father, rumors simply spun out of control and it became popular for bullies to claim they had fooled around with her.
