Question: Is there a significance to Jane choosing Alice Ayer's name? As on the plaque she died to save 3 lives. Is this meant to draw another parallel comparison of her saving these 3 characters (Anna, Larry, Dan)?

Question: Why didn't Buttercup leave Humperdinck's castle and search for Westley? When Westley and her are surrounded in the woods by Humperdinck, Rugen and the soldiers, she only agrees to return with Humperdinck if they spare Westley's life and asks that they return him to his ship etc, and then after Humperdinck tells her he's going to send a messenger out to look for Westley, she asks him each day if they've heard word, to which he says no. So couldn't Buttercup have just left and looked for Westley herself? She is shown to be able to look out for herself, think on her feet and if she really wanted to find Westley again, she would have done everything in her power to search for him.
Question: Toward the end, in Stryker's island compound, Logan is astonished to see Kayla still alive. Kayla explains that Victor only gave her an injection that simulated her death, and we then see a flashback clip of Victor sloshing a container of blood on Kayla's unconscious body to complete the illusion that he had murdered her. What did Logan do with Kayla's body after discovering it? Did he take her body to a hospital or at least to local authorities, where it would certainly be determined that she had no wounds? Being so much in love with her, why wouldn't Logan himself inspect Kayla's body for actual wounds? How is it possible that Logan was fooled by a little spilled blood on her clothing when he had personally witnessed Victor's savage work many times in combat settings over the previous century? Is there any official explanation for this glaring plot-hole?
Question: Two Questions about the Cave of Wonders: 1) The Cave states that only Aladdin can enter, but Abu enters the cave as well. That suggests that Aladdin is just the only human welcomed into the cave while the rule does not apply to animals. Why doesn't Jafar send Iago into the cave to retrieve the lamp for him? 2) The Cave also warns Aladdin not to touch any treasure besides the lamp, because if he does the cave will erupt and collapse on him. The cave is also where Aladdin and Abu meet the Magic Carpet. Clearly, they touch the carpet. Why doesn't the cave erupt and collapse when Aladdin and Abu touch the carpet?
Question: What is the situation with Mary Jane's mother? In the previous movie, Mary Jane's father refers to her as "trash", and in this movie, Mary Jane mentions that she is ill.
Question: If the lightsaber that Rey touches was Luke's and his father's before him, how did it get there? Luke's saber, given to him by Obi Wan, was lost in the fight between Luke and Vader on Cloud City when Vader cut Luke's sword hand off. It fell down with Luke's hand into the disposal tube, then out and down to Bespin's swampy surface.
Question: With all of the Federation's extraordinarily advanced knowledge, science, medicine and technology, why is it that they can't seem to repair Captain Pike's physical injuries? In the original series, Pike was crippled and hideously disfigured by Delta Rays; but the best they could offer him was a motorized wheelchair with a couple of "yes" or "no" flashing communication lights. In the rebooted franchise, Pike suffered much less severe injuries; yet, once more, all they could offer him was a simple wheelchair in the first movie, and then a walking cane in the second. In Star Trek canon, we know that they have performed brain and spinal transplants, regenerated damaged organs, healed mortal wounds (in a matter of seconds), cured horrible diseases with a single hypo-injection, and even resuscitated the dead on more than one occasion. In Star Trek novels, there is mentioned even the possibility of cycling an injured individual through a previously-stored Transporter Pattern and completely removing injuries altogether. Yet the best they ever did for Captain Christopher Pike onscreen was a wheelchair and a cane?
Question: It seems whenever this movie is played on TV, the start of the scene where Sharon is yelling at Derek in the house edits out the part at the start where Sharon yells "What? WHAT!?" and throws and breaks a dish. Why is this edited out? It always starts at the line she says right after that.
Question: How could Daniel get jail time over this whole "Doubtfire" act? He told his kids if their mom found out he could only see them through plate glass (jail/prison). Is it really a crime to do what he did? (although it is creepy and awkward to do) He didn't physically harm anyone and didn't impersonate a real person. So why would he assume this?
Question: When Kylo Ren tries to use the Force on Rey, he mentions that they need the last piece of the map, and that they have the rest. However, when R2-D2 wakes up, we find out that he had the map the entire time. Was Kylo bluffing or did he know where the rest of it was? Was there a copy or did I miss something?
Question: Who is the actor playing the very tall cooler guard? Has he appeared in any other films?
