Question: On IMDB's trivia for this movie, it says that whenever a character's eyes blink, they never blink together, but one at a time. Is this true? If so, why would they do this?

Chosen answer: If you'd ever had one of those dolls that when you lay it down the eyes close, you would know that they never close at the same time. One always seems to stick a little.

Question: After the Transporters BMW gets blown up he goes back to the house and starts beating everyone up. Whats the song that plays during the the whole scene? I don't think it's on the soundtrack.

Chosen answer: It's not in the soundtrack. The song is "Fighting Man" by "DJ Pone & Drixxxe".

Question: Does anyone know if there is a soundtrack (CD) for this movie available anywhere?

Chosen answer: I doubt it as, the film was made during Parker's college years, but every song asis available as an mp3 at www.cannibalthemusical.net

Question: Whose house does Charlie take Chong and Roy to after he meets them at Buckingham Palace?

Chosen answer: It is never really mentioned, but we can assume it is the home of some noble or "higher class" person, from all of the elaborate things.

Question: When Rosalee and Tad are on the plane and Rosalee is looking out of the window at the start of the scene (I think), what is the song playing? I briefly remember lyrics similar to, "I stay behind and watch the credits roll by.", or something to that effect.

Chosen answer: It's Somebody by Bonnie McKee.

Question: There were two flashbacks of how Raymond Shaw killed one of the soldiers. One scene it showed him suffocating him in the desert with a piece of plastic. In another scene it shows him choking him with his hands in some kind of observation room. Was the desert 'killing', a dream combining the truth with the brainwashing?

Deezul

Chosen answer: Perhaps the piece-of-plastic killing was a "test run" by the brainwashers to see if Raymond would actually react to their commands. You can see other soldiers lying down wearing "halos", hinting that this happened at a different time and place than the observation room choking.

Question: I have not seen this film but have heard that at one point Jack Black sings the Bruce Dickinson song 'Tears Of The Dragon'. Is this true? There is nothing on the IMDb.

Chosen answer: The song isn't on the soundtrack, and I can't find anywhere in the film where Jack sings lyrics that even sound like Tears. I don't think it's true.

Question: Did Joe kill the guy in the hotel that he stole the money from?

Chosen answer: Probably not. The man was a masochist who derived sexual pleasure from being physically abused. Joe apparently crammed the phone receiver into the man's mouth and left, unknown if he died from it or not.

Question: How was the underwater shark attack scene done? Things I want to know are : How come the shark didn't attack the actor? And how did all the make up stay on the actor UNDERWATER? Does anyone (also) know how long filming this scene took?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: After the original zombie extra fell ill, the shark handler was made up to play the underwater zombie. ther shark was tame, or at least enough to to not attack the handler. The make up would have been latex/oil based, so it would not have been affected by the water. I remember from the commentary that the filming took 1 or 2 days.

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know what happened to Cassandra after Dr. Frasier died?

scaryterri Premium member

Chosen answer: Cassandra is not mentioned in any of the episodes after the one where Dr Frasier dies. The show does not tell us what happened to her.

Tanith

Question: Roughly what percent of this movie was actually real as opposed to CGI?

manthabeat Premium member

Chosen answer: About 95% is CGI. The only real part of the movie was the actors themselves (and small objects they handle), with the exception of Dr. Totenkopf, portrayed using archive footage of Laurence Olivier. Everything else was CGI.

Guy

Question: Who was the man that was with the woman in the red dress, and why did he kill her?

Chosen answer: Josh Hartnett is known as 'The Man' and is a professional hitman. He killed the woman in the red dress because she hired him to do so, which is why he said 'I won't know what she's running from' and 'I'll cash her check in the morning.'

Toolio

Question: It's obvious that Jo still has feelings for Bill at the beginning of the film, so why, after he sort of admits that he still has feelings for her, does she purposefully go ahead and sign the divorce papers, after purposefully not doing so in the beginning?

Krista

Chosen answer: Jo finally signs the divorce papers after she sees how upset Bill's fiance is getting after all the near misses with the tornados. She also sees that Bill does care for his new fiance and she finally decides not to stand in the way of his new relationship, even though it did not work out in the end.

The Bully / Just One Bite - S2-E17

Question: In the episode "The Bully" why can't Flats beat up Spongebob? Spongebob's spongeness has never saved him from injury before or after this episode.

Mark English

Chosen answer: As Spongebob explained in the certain episodes he has no bones so the force of the flats punches have no effect. To be more technical there is nothing solid that Flats can punch into and hence why it has no effect. Spongebob has never really been injured and there really isn't any incidents I can recall that his "spongeness" ever came into question of being hurt or injured.

Lummie Premium member

Answer: He does have bones in some episodes.

Dan23

Question: At the beginning of the movie, who is the guy who tells someone he cannot imagine Chow Yun Fat playing Madman?

Chosen answer: That is Matt Wagnerm, creator of the "Madman" comic series.

Question: Jack and Marv were both innocent men who were falsely accused of crimes they didn't commit. Since they both know this why in the world did they both sign false confessions claiming they were the ones who broke the law?

Chosen answer: Marv signed the confession since they threatened to kill someone close to him. Jack confessed so he can get out of jail quicker.

Toolio

Question: Why, on the cover of the video and DVD of Daddy Day Care, is there a dog when there is no dog in the film?

Chosen answer: This dog belongs to the Klingon kid - he brings it in when it is Pet Day.

Kirsty Marshall

Question: Which scene was the one Quentin Tarantino directed? Please don't mention actors because I'm lousy with names. Which part exactly was it?

Chosen answer: Quentin Tarantino directed the scene where Dwight was having a conversation with Jackie-Boy's head.

Toolio

Question: I'm not sure if this is a mistake or not, but shouldn't Greg be wearing a yamaka during his wedding? He and his family are Jewish so why would he not be wearing one?

Lummie Premium member

Chosen answer: Wearing a yamaka is a custom, not a religious law. There are orthodox jews who don't wear them, as well, since it's a cultural thing.

Question: Did Frodo ever tell Gandalf and the others that it was really Gollum who (accidentally) destroyed the Ring?

Chosen answer: He certainly would have told Gandalf about it. Whether he told the other members of the Fellowship is unclear, but the book details a meeting between them where they discuss their various adventures - it seems highly likely that he would have told them then, or allowed Sam to tell the tale for them both. Certainly his love for his compatriots would mean that he wouldn't lie to them about what happened.
