Question: Near the beginning of the movie, why did Anne think that having an affair with the king could help her get married to a rich man or a duke?
Question: At the end of the movie, it states that Mary married William Stafford, but wasn't she still married to William Carey (even though the king sent him away)?
Question: We all assume, as I did when watching the movie, that the opening scene really was intended to be the Malmedy massacre. Could it have been that they were just hinting towards that, and that the opening scene (with the array of mixed Wehrmacht and SS, 101st Airborne and other which is historically not matching Malmedy) was simply another incident? Did the director ever intend to create a grossly false Malmedy scene? There were quite a lot more atrocities in that area and time, with executions of prisoners by both sides.
Question: I never understood this part of the movie, but can someone explain why the Bride is weeping and saying 'thank you' on the bathroom floor the next morning?
Question: Something I couldn't figure out. The black fluid (in the glass cylinder) made Wikus start turning into an alien. If the aliens were mainly interested in going back to their planet, why had they been developing a substance that could turn humans into aliens? How would this help them go home?
Question: I was wondering. Does Sid destroy toys because his father beats/abuses Sid, so Sid lets out his anger on toys? This would explain all the locks on Sid's door, to hide from his father and to hide what he does to toys. When Scud is looking for Woody, he notices Sid's father sleeping, and Scud walks away, which could mean that Scud doesn't want to wake up Sid's father knowing he is a cruel and violent man.
Question: A question concerning Rex the dinosaur. His nervous personality, along with a few of the lines he says, ("I just can't take that kind of rejection." "I don't like confrontations!") are very similar to George McFly from Back to the Future. Is it possible that Wallace Shawn based his role of Rex on George McFly?
