Question: Why did Stuart continue trusting the Canary when she lied to him and the whole family?

Chosen answer: Probably because he could see that she was hurt at what she did and also because earlier in the movie, he said "When you're friends with Stuart Little, you're friends for life". Also if you wanna look at it another way, him helping her could be payback for her saving him from the sink. It's just a long term friendship they have.

Question: In the ending scene when flashbacks of all the "Saw" movies are seen, I've slow motioned it many times, but I never see Dr. Gordon. Can anyone else find him?

Chosen answer: At the time, Cary Elwes was unhappy with Lionsgate because he felt that he was entitled to more money for his role in the first saw film. Because of this, he does not appear in any other Saw films until Saw 3D.

Question: The scenes with Zeb and Lou have always puzzled me. Lou is trying to stop Zeb for going after outlaw Gant and the two have a last scene arguing where Zeb says basically that he will use the Law to put away Gant, but that he'll need Gant's help. The next scene is the two on the train to protect the gold from Gant's gang, and Zeb and Lou are working together now. But Lou's got a bandage on his forehead! I think the previous scene might have had a fight scene between the two in which Zeb finally convinces Lou to help him, hence the head injury. There's no other explanation for it. Anyone have any ideas?

Chosen answer: This type of inconsistency is common in film making. More scenes are often filmed and/or they are much longer, but after editing, large portions are often cut out. Although the editing may improve the film's story line and pacing, it leaves small errors behind. This appears to be the case in this movie where a scene was completely deleted, but it left an unexplained detail behind.

Answer: A scene in with Zeb knocks Lou out in a stable was deleted.

Question: Could the police really put the Lincoln back together perfectly and that quickly?

Chosen answer: It's a different car of the same make and model that they swapped for the one they tore apart, and in which they hid the drugs in the same place as the original.

Question: Where Lecter did find the flag to swathe the policeman's corpse?

Chosen answer: It's not a flag - it's a red, white and blue banner which is high up on the walls of the room where Lecter is being held. You see it when Starling visits him and looks around the room.

Question: Horton crossed the bridge to get to Mount Nool and destroyed it. How did everyone else get across?

Chosen answer: There is a possibility that that bridge wasn't the only one to lead to Mount Nool, just the closest one.

Question: Why didn't the gangbangers kill Alonzo at the end? Did he just get away with no trouble? I thought they were going to kill him, because he was hated in the neighbourhood.

Chosen answer: They grew sick and tired of Alonzo's arrogance and probably decided he wasn't worth the effort. Alonzo was however killed by the Russian Mafia because Jake was told that Alonzo killed one of their couriers and had to pay them one million dollars by midnight or he would be killed himself.

Question: When Tom Cruise is battling to get free of the tentacle pulling him into the ship from the cage, there is alien (presumably) writing visible on the underside of the tripod just beyond his arm and above the lights. Can someone shed light on what this may say (theories, previously suggested writer/director thoughts)?

scodoc

Chosen answer: My guess is that it could be a manufacturing symbol or name like you would see on today's construction machines. It could also be a warning like, "Caution: Hot Vent", or something along those lines. To my knowledge it is never clarified by anyone. Also could have been the number/name of the unit the tripod belonged to.

Answer: Like it stated in the movie these tripods were buried years upon years ago, and if you slow don't the movie it appears to be Egyptian writing.

Question: Would a sergeant-major participate in a mission?

Chosen answer: This one did, everything ascribed to him in the film was true.

Question: What was the ball of fire as the planes are landing to the right of the screen?

Chosen answer: That would be a flare being fired from the aircraft. Yellow ones meant the aircraft had sustained serious damage, although that was often self-evident, and a red one meant that there was a seriously injured crewman on board - prompting first aid teams to be ready to meet the aircraft once it had landed. Their was also an unofficial green flare that meant someone had completed their tour of duty.

Question: Why does Harry not question ever seeing Mad Eye on the map? And does he see Barty Crouch Jr? if so why does he not say anything?

Chosen answer: Harry DID see Barty Crouch on the map, although the map doesn't seem to identify between junior and senior. The impostor Mad-Eye appeared simply as "Barty Crouch". This puzzled Harry, as Crouch was supposed to be ill at the time.

Question: Did Mrs. Voorhees kill those people at the beginning of the movie too?

Chosen answer: Yes. She killed them as well.

Mrs Voorhees murdered Barry and Claudette because, in her mind, at least, she thought that they had caused her son to drown. (I realise that's not what you asked).

Alan Keddie

Question: Why would John want Hoffman to be killed by Jill? What's wrong with him? I don't get it.

Bunch

Chosen answer: John did not want Jill to KILL Hoffman. Instead he wanted to 'test' him, much like how Amanda was tested in the first film. Jill, however wanted to kill Hoffman, therefore leaving him to die.

Question: Jill Tuck puts a yellow thick envelope into a hole on a door at Saint Eustace Hospital. What is that?

Bunch

Question: What does old Tom Hanks drop out of his pocket when he walked out of the door of the old folks home?

Chosen answer: A piece of toast.

Question: I've never adopted kids before so that's why I'm asking this question; When Stuart is being adopted, I noticed that on his papers, the parents were listed as Mr. And Mrs. Little. My question is, why aren't their first names on there? George's first name was, so why weren't theirs on there as well? Is that a mistake or is it common?

Chosen answer: I wouldn't call it a "mistake" as the movie did that on purpose for both a gag and an emphasis on Stuart becoming a Little. This is definitely not practice for actually adopting children. You must put your first name on the paperwork.

Question: What's the name of the song that plays right after the gang change out of their disguises from the spooky island castle ride?

Chosen answer: The song is called Bump in the Night.

Question: When Robin asks Rabbi Tuckman to marry him and Maid Marian, Rabbi says that he's on his last customer and that he'll be right out, and then we hear a crack, a guy calling out in pain and the Rabbi telling him "Put a little ice on it. You'll be fine." What was the joke? I never understood what he did that made the guy call out in pain. Can someone please explain?

Chosen answer: He was giving the man inside a circumcision. Earlier in the movie, Rabbi Tuckman showed Robin and the Merry Men a small handheld guillotine. He gave a demonstration by taking a carrot which was to represent a man's penis and used the guillotine to cut the tip of the carrot off.
