Question: I've played it over and over and still can't figure out what the bully kid Michel says, right after Hancock lands in the street. Is it in French?

Chosen answer: Yes, he basically says that he's going to tell his mother and the police.

Question: At the very end of the movie what does Ramon say to the camera? This occurs in the "closing circle frame" that closes out the movie, just before the credits start rolling.

Chosen answer: The only "closing circle frame" with Ramon is at the very end of the movie, AFTER the credits are through. At that point, he says 'Gracias'.

Question: Is Gerard Butler playing two roles a reference to "Peter Pan," in which the same actor usually plays both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: No. Gerard Butler plays Alex Rover because Nim imagines him looking like her father. Alexandra Rover sees him like that merely for the sake of consistency within the film.

Question: Bullets can't penetrate him, he can't even shave with a razor (has to use his fingernails), yet he can get drunk. How?

Chosen answer: Because the two are not even close to being related. Being bulletproof and being able to digest food\water\liquor are completely different.

Question: Why did Hancock end up having to go to New York to prevent his and Mary's powers from weakening? They had lived in L.A. all that time without it being a problem. Mary new he existed since his drunken heroics were always caught on tape or recorded (YouTube), and Nancy Grace even knew who he was.

Chosen answer: True, Mary knew he existed - but he didn't know about her. It was only after both of them became aware of one another that the mutual attraction set in. Besides this, before they met, Hancock was an alcoholic bum living on the streets, scorned and ridiculed by everyone. When he was in that state, it would be a lot easier for Mary to keep her (possible) attraction to him in check.

Question: Who are "them" or "they"? When Mary explains to Hancock all the times in history they have been attacked she always says "And we were attacked by them" or "When they came". Why were they being attacked? Could it have anything to do with the fact that at the time they would have been a couple in history where interacial relationships would have been frowned upon, or were they being attacked by some higher power entity?

Chosen answer: The implication is that people like the bad guy in this movie always seek out and target higher power beings like them, so eventually someone will always come after them.

Question: When B-rabbit, Future, Cheddar Bomb and Sol George park in some kind of parking structure and join in on a freestyle circle, right after B-rabbit finishes his freestyle, Sol George breaks into a song and sings, "Now I'm the dashiki smoking that ling lingy, 10 freaky girls inside the chin chingy, girl when you see me ya better believe me..." Is that a real song or did they just freestyle that?

Chosen answer: They were just freestyling, that is not a real song.

Question: Why was the garment Bleeker pulls away from his head, in the scene with the yearbook, bloody? (I am making the assumption that the reason it was red was because of blood.)

Chosen answer: He was holding Juno's underwear from the night she got pregnant.

Question: I don't know what breed Bob Lee Swagger's dog is. Could anyone possibly help me out?

Chosen answer: The dog featured in the film as Bob Lee companion was trained by owner Drew Thompson. The dog's real name is Logan. He is a Bernese Mountain and English Mastiff X. Drew states that "he is easily the smartest dog I have ever trained".

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Question: What is the Inquisitor saying as he is being wiped from existence?

Chosen answer: The direct quote is "But you can't. All my wonderful and glorious work will be undone!"

Question: Is it true that Disney made this movie as a way to protest guns and/or hunting?

Chosen answer: No. As with most Disney films, it's based on a book, in this case a 1923 Austrian book entitled Bambi: A Life in the Woods. There's no evidence that the book was chosen for any more than the quality of the story.

Question: Was the process in which a vampire sires a human borrowed from Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula? Having seen that film recently, I noticed that, when Dracula sires Mina, the process was the same. Or was it taken from vampire mythology?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: It is classic vampire mythology.

Question: The game they play near the start (the knock on wood game) seems pretty interesting. Is the point of it not to get caught moving or is there another goal? Also, can someone help me with the Spanish translation? I can't hear what the Spanish for Knock on Wood is. Thanks.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Chosen answer: It's a Spanish version of Red Light, Green Light where you'd try not to get caught moving. I haven't watched the film in a while but I believe she says "Uno, dos, tres, toca la pared". Hope that helps!

Angela Brown

Question: I don't know if anyone can answer this before the movie comes out, but I read a summary for book version of the movie, which says that Ahsoka is fourteen. In one of the trailers for the movie, she tells Anakin that she wants to prove she is old enough to be a Padawan. I thought children had to be chosen as a Padawan before they were thirteen (according to Wikipedia). Isn't she actually a little late in getting a master?

Chosen answer: George Lucas says she is 11, although everything else says she is 14. And from Wookiepedia..."If a youngling was not chosen by any Jedi Knight to be their Padawan by 13 years of age, the youngling was placed into another, lesser role in the Jedi Service Corps—a tradition abandoned by Luke Skywalker when he created the New Jedi Order."http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Padawanhttp://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ahsoka

Question: I still don't understand why Leonard switches clothes with Jimmy and steals his car after he kills him. "I'd rather be mistaken for a dead guy than a killer." That makes absolutely no sense. Driving around in Jimmy's car and wearing his suit would make him the prime suspect in the investigation. He was much safer when he was just an anonymous guy driving around in a pickup truck.

Chosen answer: It is never explicitly given. The most Leonard says on the subject is: "I'd rather be mistaken for a dead guy than a killer." Speculations include (you can make up your own motives as well) : (1) The clothes and car are so much nicer than his. If you are willing to kill someone: stealing is not really a "crime." Why not take the nicer objects? (2) It could be part of his "routine": Kill a man, take his clothes and car. The clothes he had on and the truck may be from the man he killed a year ago. (3) It could be that he wants to make the killer of his wife suffer even more, and takes his clothes as a way of humiliating him. Leonard takes the man's life-his clothes and car, which are wrapped up in his identity-just as the man took his. This idea seems to work with a theme in Memento about "Identity" (especially mistaken identity). Natalie thinks Leonard is Jimmy, then thinks he is Teddy, then learns he is Leonard. Teddy is "mistaken" for the second killer, Jimmy is "mistaken" for the 2nd killer. Sammy's story as a part of Leonard's story, etc. (4) It could "simply" be explained as a "plot device": Leonard has to do it, otherwise he won't find the note in "his pocket" and meet Natalie. (5) Leonard doesn't want to admit he's a murderer. He's lying to himself. If he's the victim, then he cannot be the murderer. (6) Leonard takes Jimmy's clothing as part of his routine of killing J.G.'s he becomes another person, he's the victim not the killer, thus "I'd rather be mistaken for a dead guy than a killer." and that's why he also takes his car, so he has to, once again, find his wife's killer and kill him.

Question: When the generals daughter is being brought out in the coffin at the end, "Amazing Grace" is being played on the bagpipes. Is this a military thing for dead soldiers, and if so, why "Amazing Grace" and why a Scottish instrument in particular?

Chosen answer: It's just a generic funeral song and the bagpipes are supposed to make it more...mournful.

Question: Before the movie came out, I read that it is going to be a trilogy. Is that true?

Chosen answer: A lot of the time when a film of this nature is released, there will be ideas how the story could be continued - studios are always looking for the next successful franchise. Both Doug Liman and Hayden Christensen have commented that the film only covers about the opening third of an eventual storyline, suggesting that, provided that the studios are satisfied with the box office returns from the first film, that we can certainly expect sequels to appear. The book of the same name that the film was based on already has a sequel, entitled Reflex. Liman has already mentioned that some plot-strands from that novel will be factored into any cinematic sequel.

Question: In the scene where the Joker's men all fire on the Mayor, why is the Joker shown with short brown hair? Has a reason ever actually been given or is it just assumed he wears a wig?
