Question: In the scene where Bucks brother rings him up to babysit there is a body in bucks bed. In the scene before Buck is at a bar but brings no one home from the bar so where did the the extra person come from?

Chosen answer: You can't actually see a person, all you see is a human-sized lump under the covers. It's possible that it's just bunched-up blankets, some pillows, or even clothes.

Question: During the song El Tango de Roxanne, towards the end someone starts speaking in French or Spanish. Who is speaking and what is the English translation?

Chosen answer: The words are Spanish, but it's no one from the movie. "And I who love you so much; what am I going to do? You left me...you left me like a dove. My soul has left me; my heart has left me. I no longer wish to live because I cannot convince you not to sell yourself, Roxanne."

Such Sweet Sorrow - S6-E21

Question: What is the song that is playing over the screens where Carol is leaving to meet Doug in Seattle?

Chosen answer: "I'm taking you home" by Don Henley.

Tobin OReilly

Question: It shows in Reloaded that the Architect's room has hundreds of TV's in which to "Watch over" the Matrix. Why didn't he notice Agent Smith "Multiplying" earlier on and put an end to it before it got so out of hand?

Chosen answer: Undoubtedly he tried. During the Burly Brawl, for example, an agent appears, but is turned into a Smith. It appears he has very little control over rogue programmes.

Question: Is the ice cream man the same person who plays the man who says "We've got a stretcher for you, ma'am"?

Chosen answer: No.

Gavin Jackson

Question: Before Lina sings "Singin' in the Rain," she keeps backing up to the curtain (to ask Kathy what song she's going to sing, and in what key). Wouldn't that tip off the audience that Lina wasn't using her own voice?

Chosen answer: They might think she's just asking someone backstage, R.F. or something, which song it would be best to sing.

Question: Why did Matthew Broderick not sing as Simba? (he does sing otherwise.)

Chosen answer: It's possible that the songs written for the character simply didn't suit his singing voice. There was an additional song written for the film, to be sung by Mufasa (called "To Be King") - this was eventually cut completely for a similar reason, namely that it didn't suit James Earl Jones' (very good) singing voice.

Fool For Love - S5-E7

Question: In this episode we see some of Spike's history - when he's human there's a bit where he walks down a street tearing up his poetry and bumps past Angel and Darla. We don't see their faces, but it's obviously them. I remember an episode of Angel when we see a flashback of Spike still human - can anyone remember the episode, and am I right in thinking that the bit we see is exactly the same moment in history, but we're focusing on Angel and Darla instead?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: This would be the episode "Darla", and, yes, it's exactly the same moment - I'm pretty sure that the same shot is used. In a nice bit of coordination, Darla is Angel episode 2.7, which corresponds exactly to Fool for Love, which is Buffy episode 5.7. - at the time, I think, the two series were shown on the same night, one after the other, making the two episodes, in effect, a double-length history lesson on the vampires of this particular bloodline. In an even nicer bit of coordination, this particular scene occurs at about the same point in each episode (around the 15-minute mark).

Question: When the tour group is heading back to base camp, Richard Attenborough is complaining about how the tour was unsuccessful. Samuel L. Jackson says very seriously, "It could have been worse - a lot worse." Is he referring to the fact that the dinosaurs could have escaped, or that they knew the security was faulty? If this was a real possibility, why would they have sent the tour group out, especially the kids?

Krista

Chosen answer: I don't think they're thinking along that sort of lines - I think it's more that this is the first test of the tour systems with a 'real' tour group and they're concerned about technical difficulties. Hammond is complaining because it didn't all go perfectly - Arnold is merely reminding him that they had a lot of technical systems that worked fine. If they'd had problems as well, the tour could have been appalling. At this point, they wouldn't even be considering the possibility of a dinosaur breakout or security problem - they're worried about the technical aspects of the tour working properly.

Question: Forgive my ignorance, but what does Aragorn say after Legolas returns the Evenstar pendant?

Chosen answer: He says "Hannon le" - it means "Thank you".

Tailkinker Premium member

Question: I've got one question about Legolas' infamous jump on to the horse during the wolf-attack. Is it even possible to do something like that? How did they shoot that scene?

Chosen answer: It's a computer-generated Legolas. While experienced riders are capable of some pretty amazing stuff, I'd imagine that what's seen would be impossible to do in reality - certainly not without throwing the horse off a lot more than seen here. But then, Legolas is an elf, so all bets are off on what he's capable of doing.

Question: Is there any reason that Mr. Darling and Captain Hook are played by the same actor other than to pay homage to past productions of Peter Pan (as pointed out in trivia)?

Nick N.

Chosen answer: It's a stage tradition. Mr. Darling and Captain Hook are ALWAYS played by the same actor.

Grumpy Scot

Question: I heard Keira Knightly was in this film, does anybody know who she played?

star wars freak

Chosen answer: She played Sabe, the queen's handmaiden and double.

Xofer

Question: After that George (the Eminem wannabe) has been thrown out the window at the rap-club he and a friend of his walk past a parked car. Under the car you can see two feet sticking out. I don't think it's a crew member, I don't see any reason for a crew member to lie there. Is this any kind of joke or what? Why do someone lie there? Can someone please explain?

Chosen answer: It's just in the random nature of the films to have a dead body's legs sticking out from underneath a car.

Piemanmoo

Question: Were the interior scenes shot inside a real shopping mall or a set?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Most of the interior scenes were shot in a mall in Burlington, near Toronta.

Question: At the very end of the whole show, what is the name/title of the song that plays out over the montage of them going downstairs, and subsequently over the apartment?

Chosen answer: The song at the end is called "Embryonic Journey" by Jefferson Airplane.

Kelly Weidenfeld

Question: What happens at the end of this film? Was the man who was shot the real man, and who was that guy who McQueen shot at the end?

Chosen answer: The man shot at the hotel at the beginning is Renick. Ross assumed Renick's identity and was going to flee the country. Ross kills Mrs. Renick to keep her quiet. The man at the airport that Bullitt kills is Ross.

Question: Anyone know where I can get the music for the trailer to this movie?

DenizenZERO

Chosen answer: Which trailer? There have been two. The teaser used some original music scored by Robert Etoll, plus bits from Danny Elfman's score for the first film. The full trailer uses, in order, tracks called "Burn the Clock" (Adam Freeland), "Lacrimosa" and "Orch and Choir Rise" (both Immediate Music), "Switchback Instrumental" (Celldweller), a bit from "The Last Samurai" by Hans Zimmer (referred to as the "Ronin" cue), and finally a bit from "Plunkett & Macleane" by Craig Armstrong (referred to as the "Hanging" cue).

Question: I was wondering about the title change from "Leon" to the "Professional". Was the title only changed in the U.S. and if so why?

Chosen answer: According to IMDb.com the title was only changed in the United States and the reason why was maybe audiences would find the title, "The Professional" more appealing than "Leon."
