Question: I have heard a rumour that there is a deleted scene where Riggs kills the two guys who dropped him off the pier in a straight-jacket. Apparently it was too violent to keep in. If this is true then where could I see the deleted scene?

Chosen answer: This scene is already in the movie (maybe only the Director's Cut). Riggs surfaces just off the pier, picks up a chain, strangles one man with it and breaks the other man's neck. The scene is cut considerably for play on television and in all versions of the movie in the UK prior to the 2010 UK blu-ray release (including the Directors Cut) - although some TV airings since 2000 have used the full uncut version.

Question: In the mistakes section it mentions that Richie's mother, Rachel, and the Winslow's younger daughter, Judy, disappeared without a trace. Was there ever any explanation?

Chosen answer: No. Call it "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome". A character is written off the show without any explanation at all.


New this month Answer: It is said that as Steve Urkel became a more popular character on the show, Judy became less important to the storylines, plus either her or her parents were demanding more money, causing her to be removed from the show entirely.

Question: In the episode where Homer and Bart go to the Superbowl, why does Marge write down Jody Price's name on a pad when calling the toy company about missing feet for their egg painting game?

Chosen answer: Because on the recording Vincent Price says his Grandson Jody will get them the missing feet.


Question: When Magneto has kidnapped Rogue, she asks him if he is going to kill her to which he answers "Yes". I don't understand - Magneto wants to use Rogue as a vessel to transfer all his power into, not kill her.

Chosen answer: As we saw earlier when Magneto used the machine on Senator Kelly, it severely drained his strength and had nearly died. Using the machine on the much grander scale on Ellis Island would certainly kill the person at the controls which is why Magneto needed someone to do it for him. Rogue would have been killed had Wolverine, Storm, Jean & Cyclops not rescued her at the last minute.

Question: Why is there always a midget version of Piangi's character in the operas?

Chosen answer: Midgets were common at the time in that type of shows, where they were used as a comic relief.

Chosen answer: According to the book, at the beginning, Jane 22, Elizabeth 20, Mary between Elizabeth and Kitty so 18 or 19, Kitty 17, Lydia 15.


Question: I don't really get it. Why doesn't he just rewind and start over when things start going bad? Did I miss something?

Chosen answer: He can't start over, all he can do with rewind is view the past. The remote was a learning remote. The choices Michael made were his and they were permanent. Morty goes over this when he explains the virtues of the remote to Michael.


Question: There is a scene where Borat is queueing up to see Pamela Anderson, he gets to her, asks her to marry him and when she refuses he puts a large sack over her head to try and abduct her. Now I know Borat is a spoof character, and everyone he meets believes he is real, however that scene was quite dramatic and security would have been tight around her. That action could have got Sacha Baron Cohen in some serious trouble, or even worse, shot by one of her security guards. Was Pamela in the know on this scene, or was it genuinely as we see it?


Chosen answer: Pamela has been asked about this and has stated in interviews that she and Sacha had talked at length about what they were going to do. It was all planned out and rehearsed, unlike the majority of the rest of the movie.


Question: I have seen a different ending to this film. Every now and then when it airs on TV the movie ends with Doc in 1955, standing at the site where Marty just went back to 1985, and then Marty comes running up to him and says "I'm back" (or something similar). I seem to remember that this is the standard ending to the second film. Why is it occasionally used to end the first one?

Chosen answer: That's actually the beginning scene in Back to the Future 3. It would make no sense to end the first film with that sequence, as at that point Marty hasn't returned to 1955 after getting home the first time.

Question: What is the length of time in the monster world compared to the human world? Boo is gone overnight in the monster world, so would that mean the human world is longer since Boo's parents aren't worried about their missing child?

Chosen answer: How do you know Boo's parents weren't worried about her? Most of the film takes place after Boo goes into the monster world and the one time when she goes back her room is empty, only meaning her parents weren't there when she returned. It's also impossible to tell whether the monster world's days are shorter or longer than the human world.


Question: Just after Mystique takes the bullet for Magneto, he does acknowledge that she saved him, but walks away. It was very obvious that she did save him so the line wasn't put there for explanation, so why have Magneto say that she saved him if he didn't care?

Chosen answer: As you said yourself, he's acknowledging to her that she saved him. Whether he now cares about her or not, an acknowledgement is hardly unreasonable.

Question: Is it ever mentioned what ocean they are in?

Chosen answer: Judging by the French narrator, and the tropical atmosphere, I'd say they're meant to be in the Galapagos.


The Pacific Ocean is where the Bikini islands are located.


Question: How come King Kong is on the ad smoking a cigar? He wasn't in the movie or anything.

Chosen answer: Ads are often made months before the final editing of any movie. Therefore, it's not unsual for something to be in an ad but not in the final movie (or to happen differently, or a different shot, or different music, etc.).
