Question: I recently bought the Extended DVD of this movie and sold the Theatrical version to a friend. While watching the Extended DVD I couldn't help noticing that the jug that Pippin replaces the Palantir with (while Gandalf is sleeping with his eyes open) did not seem like the same jug as the one in the Theatrical version. Are they the same jug?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: There is absolutely no reason to believe it is not the same, the costs to change this would be prohibitive and there is no reasonable need to have done so.

Question: Are there any plans to do a King Of The Hill movie?

Chosen answer: There are no current plans to make a movie, however, with the success of the "The Simpsons Movie" that could change.

Question: Well it is said that Danny was supposed to commit suicide at the end. But I would like to know for what reason, could anyone give some more detail on this? What exactly is the reason Danny would want to commit suicide in the first place?

Movieman123

Chosen answer: It was the film producers that suggested that Danny commit suicide at the end of the film, some have speculated to give the movie a different spin than the original stage production. However, the writers refused, so he flew off in a Cadillac with Sandy instead. That said, there's very little evidence for anything to do with Grease featuring suicide actually being real, and not just a rumour.

OneHappyHusky

It doesn't answer my question why he would want to commit suicide.

They would have given him a reason (Sandy going with someone else, for example) - him killing himself would have necessitated various changes to the plot. Danny as we know him in the finished film would have no reason to commit suicide.

Cats in the Cradle... - S2-E20

Question: I've always wondered as to what would happen to the young girls that murdered the old woman. Would they go to juvenile hall? Or would they be let off because they are young? The episode ends without the audience being told what would happen.

Chosen answer: While it is impossible to know for certain, it is highly unlikely they would be let go and would be prosecuted to some extent. In support of this is the statement made by real life Nevada Judge Mills Lane (Ret.), "In Nevada, if you commit murder or attempted murder you do not go to juvenile court, you go right to adult court."

Question: Are the vampire prosthetics the same kind Joel Schumacher used in The Lost Boys?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: There is no way to be positive as Schumacher has never addressed this issue publicly. I can tell you that there are no common special effects make-up personnel between the two productions.

Question: Why was Jon Heder credited on movie posters, but not in the film?

Chosen answer: He is credited. In the beginning, the credits read Will Farrell, then Blades of Glory, and THEN Jon Heder shows up.

Question: Has there ever been a mention as to why John Ashton and Ronny Cox didn't reprise their rolls of Taggart and Bogomil for this movie?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Both men chose not to participate in this movie after reading the script but have not stated publicly what the specific issue was. Anyone who saw the movie can probably venture a guess!

Question: Were the writers/directors ignorant to cow/bull terminology and anatomy? Even if one agrees that "cow" can be used to refer to either sex, the male "cows" in this movie should not have utters.

Chosen answer: This is a children's movie and is presented in a manner that will be understandable and familiar for the target audience.

Question: What are the different levels of Jedi, in order? I know that in this movie, Anakin is a Knight but not a Master.

Chosen answer: Right at the very bottom, you have the younglings, who appear to have no particularly official title, but who have been variously referred to as Jedi Initiates, Jedi Students and occasionally Jedi Hopefuls. As they age and are apprenticed to a Jedi Master or Jedi Knight, they become a Padawan, travelling with their mentor. Once a Padawan is deemed ready by his or her mentor, they will enter a series of trials, at the end of which they will have the rank of Jedi Knight conferred upon them (in certain cases, where a Padawan has performed some act of extraordinary heroism, this may be taken in lieu of the trials, an example being Obi-wan Kenobi, who was promoted to Jedi Knight after his defeat of Darth Maul). The remaining official rank is that of Jedi Master, which is most commonly conferred on a Jedi after they successfully train their first Padawan to Knight rank, but may also be awarded by their peers after some particularly grand act or major advancement in the Force. While not technically possessing a higher rank, the twelve Jedi who sit on the council can be considered to possess higher authority within the Order. Finally, an unofficial but acknowledged position within the Order is that of Grand Master, considered "first among equals" in the council, held by Yoda at the time of the fall of the Old Republic.

Question: In the scene where Spider-man is given the key to the city, when he swings in, I recognized that the song the marching band was playing was the spider-man theme song from the old cartoon. I think we first heard this in Spider-man 2 when that Asians lady was singing it on the corner. Where would this band hear this song to be playing it at the ceremony? How do they know of it?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: Given his popularity by the 3rd movie, it is not unlikely that a cartoon has been made based on him or that someone wrote the song about Spiderman and it has become popular. Also, we hear a (slightly modified) version of the song in the first movie as well...the singing cowboy. So the song has clearly been around for some time.

The Substitute Spanish Prisoner - S6-E2

Question: Where does the title of this episode come from? It seems like "The Substitute Spanish Prisoner" would actually be better for the episode where Peggy accidentally sneaks a Mexican girl back into America during a field trip, and is later arrested in Mexico.

Chosen answer: The title comes from a con trick that is similar to the scam emails from people claiming to represent wealthy Nigerians. (For more information on this click here.) Being that much of the episode revolves around a con man and conning the title seems more suitable than to the episode Peggy accidentally kidnaps the Mexican girl Lupe.

Question: There's one thing that bothers me. It's when Evan ends up in mental hospital, and his brain is once again attacked by torrent of new memories, then we see very fast switching pictures of various faces, with lots of mixed voices in the background. What is the meaning of this?

Chosen answer: Those are his "new" memories rushing into his brain.

Question: What was the meaning of John's ponytail? Why didn't he want it to be touched or cut off?

Chosen answer: His religion states, more or less, that if his hair is ever cut then he cannot enter heaven.
