Question: In the scenes leading up to the shoot-out in the bar, the German Major says that the Captain just gave himself away. I am assuming that he is referring to the fact that the Captain held up three fingers when asking for only three glasses. I don't see how this is a give-away. Can someone please explain?scrappy1982
Question: In the scene where Beckett, Will, and Jones meet with Elizabeth, Jack, and Barbossa on the island, Elizabeth decides to exchange Will for Jack. Back on the Black Pearl, she tells Barbossa that they need to give Jack a chance. What does she mean by this? Also, why was Barbossa so eager to free Calypso, while Elizabeth and Will were so against it?lizardliz
Question: When Klaatu and Professor Barnhardt are writing on the black board together, are they solving something that we just haven't solved yet, and so answering this question is hopeless, or does anybody know what it is they are supposedly solving, it looks to be something to do with an event horizon.
Question: When the blonde woman is showing clients a photograph of Whitney and asking if anyone wants to kill her for a cheap price, she shows it to a cannibal guy who is eating a man tied to a table. I just wanted to know if this man being eaten is the same man that Whitney danced with at the festival and then Beth stops her from sleeping with him because she was too drunk. It looks a lot like him, but I wasn't sure because I originally thought he was helping the bad guys get the girls to the factory.jenn_s_h85
Question: In this film Bond almost dies when he is poisoned and discovers that his portable defibrillator has a broken wire.

Question: In the beginning scene where the two participants had to cut flesh in order to survive, what was to stop them simply putting other stuff on the scales instead of flesh, such as the heavy tools and knives and escaping that way?
Question: Is there any factual basis for the story of the little girl General Jackson befriended? I can't find anything about her, or anything saying she is fictional.
