Question: I was wondering if "the mile" in the song "Redeemer" was in reference to the "mile" that death row inmates walk, if so, how would late 17th century citizens come to call it that if it is in fact a fairly recent phrase? Did current wardens pick it up from the 1600's?

Chosen answer: After listening and double checking lyrics websites, there are nothing in this song about "the mile". Even if there was, there would be no reason to make this reference because this movie is not about death row or prisons. Besides, this song was written specifically for the film in 2002, not in the 17th century, so any references would be modern.

No Free Rides / I'm Your Biggest Fanatic - S2-E10

Question: Can anyone read Spongebob's license in "No Free Rides"? Is his DOB 7/14/76 or 7/14/86?

Chosen answer: The logical date of birth for Sponegebob would be 7/14/76. This is because in the episode where Spongebob takes Pearl to her senior prom, he says to Gary that he couldn't even get a date to his own prom. Spongebob is 28, not 18.

Question: What is the song played around the end of the main trailer? It sounds a lot like the theme from Brazil if that helps.

Chosen answer: It IS from Brazil. The song is called Brazil, performed by Geoff Muldaur.

Question: There is a scene partway through the movie when Marianne is playing and singing, the first time Colonel Brandon sees her. What song is she singing, and where can I find music for it?

Chosen answer: The lyrics come from a poem called "Weep You No More, Sad Fountains" - it was set to music specifically for the film by Patrick Doyle. There is sheet music available for this piece here: http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/selections-from-sense-and-sensibility-sheet-music/2923004. As far as I know, you have to buy both 'The Dreame' and 'Weep You No More Sad Fountains', but they are both here.

Question: In the commercial for Spiderman, they play background music that has vocals. What is this song and who sings it? (if you look on http://spiderman.sonypictures.com/ , watch the full length trailer and near the end starting when the blue writing shows up and says 'this summer', it starts.).

Chosen answer: It actually starts slightly before that - the harsh drum beats before the text appears are the opening to the track. It's called "Lacrimosa" by a bunch called Immediate Music, whose compositions get used in movie trailers a lot. As for who actually sings it - it's obviously a choir, presumably one hired to perform that track.

Question: My friend told me that there were facts missing from this movie - for example, the involvement of the UN troops in Somalia. Is this true?

Chosen answer: It depends on what facts they are talking about. The involvement of the UN troops in relation to the events of the movie is accurate. The UN troops as well as the US 10th Mountain Division where involved in Somalia in different areas.

Question: On the DVD, what happens if you answer all the questions right on "Your Mission" in the Features menu?

Question: A lot of people in this film sing the song "Danke Shoen." Why do they do this?

Chosen answer: It is a song that easily gets stuck in one's head after hearing it; it's more or less used as a comic effect for this reason. Ferris sings it twice (once in the shower and again in the parade), Mr. Rooney hums it at Ferris' house, and Jeannie sings it when leaving the police station.

Question: I think it's just a joke, but is the "token black guy"'s hair changing everytime he's on camera, i.e. afro, buzzcut, cornrows, etc.

Chosen answer: He's supposed to represent the "token black guy" from a lot of teen type movies including the various hairstyles that were worn in those films.

Question: Was it really Tobey's body both times in the mirror?

Chosen answer: Yes, he worked out a lot to get into that condition. On the DVD commentary, Raimi states that one of the first scenes shot was where Tobey takes off his shirt and is not in great shape while one of the last ones shot was the one in the mirror you are referring to.

Question: Why does Jess's sister insult Jess and her future mother-in-law by calling them cows? Aren't cows sacred in India?

Chosen answer: Even though Pinky and her friends are Indian by descent, they're very British, and lots of their language reflects this. Saying that the women are 'cows' is just one example of this. In addition they're Sikh, and cows aren't sacred to Sikhs.
