Question: Upon first meeting each other, Veruca says "Let's be friends", and Violet replies "best friends". I get a strange feeling this is a reference to something. Is it, and if so, what?
Question: Who is One Stab telling the story to? I thought maybe it was a relative of Tristan (son/daughter or grandson/granddaughter) because he hands the person the family letter which makes me think it WAS a family member, but who is it?
Question: Whats the deal with the moving staircases? Wouldn't they make all the students late for classes?
Question: A woman named Hannah Groves is credited in the movie as Rita, but I don't remember anyone named Rita in the movie. Can someone tell me who she is?
Question: Would it be possible for someone to explain something to me? What is the significance of the time 2:06? Obviously it's when David wakes up in the middle of the night, but why?
Question: During the section toward the end where Bruce Willis is arriving at the farm to rescue Nancy, we see Elijah Wood sitting and reading the bible in the house. Since he is a friend of the yellow freak's family, why doesn't he do anything to stop Bruce Willis? He certainly helped when Mickey Rourke was around but this time he just sits and does nothing and I'm a little confused as to why. If someone could help me I would really appreciate it.
Question: Does anyone know a website that tells the full, true story of the Jamaican bobsled team? I liked to get a look at all the differences between the film and what actually happened. I tried to search for it on Google, but all I am coming up with is things about the movie, not the actual event.
Question: As the mine explodes at the end of the movie would it actually be possible for all of the prisoners to escape? Because the shots right before the detonation we see them still running down the steps and some just leaving the cells. How would they be able to get far enough away to be unharmed?
