Question: What was the explanation for Princess Leia changing from an American accent to a bad British accent and back to an American again during "A New Hope"? Was this simply a case of bad acting and sloppy editing, or was Leia actually mocking Tarkin's British accent (which doesn't seem very dignified for a Princess)?
Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: After Lois says she doesn't want to hear another word of this and leaves, Peter does what looks like sign language to Chris, who does a sign back. Did they actually say anything in sign language, or was it just another goofy bit? If it was real, what was said?
Question: When Harry sees into the past of Dumbledore's meeting with young Tom Riddle, Tom admits that he hurts people if they are mean to him. Since Tom openly admits this with obviously no guilt or remorse, why would Dumbledore take him to Hogwarts to learn magic instead of leaving him at the orphanage?
Question: In the hotel fight scene with Ms. Perkins, she takes what I think is the bottom end of her jacket and bites down on it. Any idea why? Just curious.
Question: Why were there so many attempts to kill Rayna when she was the only one to know where the nuke was? Who were those assassins working for?
Question: At the beginning of the film, Belle shows her new book to the sheep at the fountain, and you can see the writing is all in French (because the film is set in France). That being the case, why is it in the extended version of the film, when Belle is teaching the Beast to read, they're reading Romeo and Juliet in English?
Question: On the plane, as Gerry is wrapping her stump and right after he admits he hadn't known cutting her hand off would work, Segen says something quietly, then adds "Now I'm just a liability." What does she say right before "Now I'm just a liability"? I can't hear what she says (it might not be English) and it's not in the closed captioning or in any transcript I've been able to find online.
Question: Peter initiates a cutaway when he says: "he's a bad man, like Jodie Foster." In the cutaway, Jodie Foster is making out with a woman, who then exclaims that her husband has come home early, to which Jodie replies, "don't worry baby he had to find out sometime" in a deep, mannish voice. She then farts. I don't get the joke. Why is she a man?
Question: I know Hilary Clinton is on one of the denomination of the lunar money. But at the end, when Felix is in Pluto's new club, there's money sitting on a waitress' tray of a different denomination with someone else on it. Who is on that bill? If there were other bills seen (i.e. deleted scenes) who is on those?
Question: Why didn't the studio use the camera on Truman's clothes, which is functional later while he is at sea, to locate Truman during or following the basement disappearance?
Question: When all the buyers meet up at Musso and Franks, the different crime syndicates are being seen by Madison via webcam. We then see her go to the roof access. Did she set up the syndicates? If not, then why did Madison go to the roof access in the first place?
Question: As the attack on the White House is underway, a relief column is detached from a nearby military base, which is going to take 10-15 minutes to get there. Flying with the column are several Apache attack helicopters. Why do the Apaches fly with the column and not on ahead to engage the attackers asap. A couple of Apaches would have made a huge difference to the White House's defence.
