Question: Why was Jon Heder uncredited?

Chosen answer: Jon Heder was not uncredited. His name is on the posters, etc.

Myridon

Question: Does anyone know if the Trans AM and the truck used in the film are still around?

Chosen answer: The original "Bandit" Trans am no longer exists, but one from the second movie is kept at The Performance Car Museum, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Answer: The trailer appeared in a recent episode of "The Walking Dead"

Question: In the scene where The Bride smashes Buck's head in with the door, surely after 13 hours (the time it took for her to sit in the car and 'wiggle her big toe') someone would have noticed Buck was dead and the police would be involved. This would probably lead to them searching his car as well. I know it may be a deliberate mistake seeing as The Bride hasn't been chased for killing anyone else, but there were police in the beginning of the film so they do exist.

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. She probably stashed his body in her room. Nurses would rarely come in as she was comatose, so its likely they only check her twice a day. Also, 12-14 hours is not an unusual shift at all for a nurse, so its entirely possible no one noticed him missing.

Grumpy Scot

Question: *spoiler warning* How powerful are the pumpkin bombs? When Peter uses one on Harry at the end of their fight in the lair, it detonates right next to his head, but Harry later comes back with nothing but burn scars on the side of his face. At the end of the film, though, the pumpkin bomb used on Venom completely incinerates Eddie Brock and leaves nothing behind but a small flaming strand of the symbiote.

Chosen answer: 1) There are different kinds of pumpkin bombs, each of varying strength and purpose. Harry would have thrown a weaker one at Peter since they were in the same room. And 2) The symbiote is especially sucseptible to fire. It's one of its two weaknesses. Sound being the other. The bomb Peter threw at the end was the same type that Norman threw at the executives during the World Unity Festival in the first Spider-Man, which is why it skeletonized Eddie.

My Old Friend's New Friend - S4-E1

Question: Why would Carla and Turk come straight back from holiday with their luggage and in their normal clothes? Wouldn't they drop that off first? Carla still has her suitcase while Turn and JD are trying to get together?

Chosen answer: I don't think there is really anything mysterious to them not going straight home and dropping off their clothes. Turk was pretty keen to see JD again and perhaps decided it was easier to catch up with him right then, then go home and come back to the hospital. Maybe going to the hospital was on their way to going back home, no real definite answer.

Question: How come Eddie Brock developed sharp teeth and sort of reptilian eyes when he had the black stuff that turned into a suit, but Peter didn't?

Chosen answer: When Eddie had the suit on, it was "complete". Basically, Venom is what the symbiote wants to be. Because Eddie was filled with rage and hatred, he gladly accepted the suit and this allowed the symbiote to fully take over. Peter Parker gladly accepted the suit as well, but he was not filled with some rage that Eddie was. It would have been a matter of time before the symbiote would have fully taken over Peter.

Question: When Stan Lee makes his appearance and talks to Peter Parker he says to him that "One man can make the difference" The same thing the founder of Knight Industries (Knight himself) says to the young Michael Knight in the first episode of Knight Rider, before he passes away. Is it kind of a tribute to the series?

Chosen answer: Doubtful. This line (or one very similar to it), has been used in many movies and TV shows, and the theme of one person making a difference has been used countless times.

Question: So i saw the movie and the one mistake that popped out on me was the change from day to night at the bridge scene. I would think a movie editor that does that job for life would see that. Why didn't they catch that?

Movieman123

Chosen answer: It's just one of those things. Sort like how you could proof read a term paper over and over and not see any errors, but hand it to someone else and they spot five in the first paragraph. You may as well ask why any other mistake wasn't caught in any other film. They just missed it. Or found it, but didn't have time to fix it.

Question: Was Norman ever really ashamed of Harry (aside from small things like Harry not having a job in the first movie), or was this just the Green Goblin personality trying to manipulate Harry?

Chosen answer: Norman Osborn had a split personality. Norman loved his son, but felt Harry didn't really live up to his full potential. He wasn't ashamed of him, just a little disappointed in him. The Green Goblin was ashamed of Harry. He thought he was weak. So Bad Peter was lying to Harry just to hurt him, whereas the "ghost" of Norman Osborn (Green Goblin persona) was speaking truthfully.

Question: What is the tune that is playing when we first see Billy going into jail?

Chosen answer: It is called "Shipping Up to Boston" by the band The Dropkick Murphys, from their "Warrior's Code" album.

Vin15Nets

Show generally

Question: Every cast member of Cheers has been on Frasier at one time or another except Kirstie Alley (Rebecca). Does anyone know why she did not appear?

Chosen answer: She did not see herself reprising that role unless Rebecca had made a huge change like becoming a psychiatrist.

Question: How did Eddie Brock know that Flint Marko would want Spiderman dead? They did not meet before, not even at the bank robbery scene because Flint went down the sewers first. Plus, how did Venom find him so easily?

Chosen answer: Venom knows everything Spider-Man knew while he had the black suit. So he knows that Spider-Man and Sandman are enemies. It was more of an assumption on Venom's part that Sandman would want Spider-Man dead. We're never really shown exactly how long Venom was looking for Sandman. At any rate, Venom can move through the city at least as quickly as Spider-Man can. It wouldn't have taken him so long to hunt Sandman down.

Question: Why was there never a tribute to Richard Harris in the credits of any of the Harry Potter movies? I understand he died 2 weeks before the Chamber of Secretes debuted in theaters, however there was plenty of time to put a tribute in the credits of The Prisoner of Azkaban.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Probably because it was eighteen months later by that point and, in the end, Harris really had nothing to do with that film, making a tribute to him in the credits inappropriate.

Question: This might be explained in the comics, but why does Peter Parker appear to be immune to death? He gets repeatedly slammed into walls all the time, and then he is pounded repeatedly by the giant Sandman and lives. I know that spiders are very strong relative to their size, but you can still squish 'em.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Chosen answer: I'm not sure about the comics, but the science behind Spiderman is real. He embodies all the characteristics of a real spider, only amplified by genetic mutations (remember that the spider that bit him was not just any spider) and adjusted to his size. He can still be "squished" just like your standard house spider, although it would take a LOT more power...more than most of his adversaries are able to produce. This is why it took BOTH Sandman and Venom taking turns to wear him down.

Stefanie

Question: When Peter is wearing the black suit at the top of the church bell tower and decides to remove it he has to struggle with it considerably in order to rip it off. So why is he able to easily take it off by will at other times in the film, such as when he stores it in the black suitcase in his closet? If this black "goo" sticks to its host at all times, he would have had the same level of difficulty trying to remove it then, no?

Chosen answer: The suit has a will of its own. It didn't resist before because Peter took it off normally. Now Peter was taking it off because he didn't want it. The suit sensed that, and resisted.

K.C. Sierra

Question: I don't understand the joke that Clem says when he's cleaning in the hallway, right before the killer mustard gas sequence. He says something like, "Let me ask you something. Does your mother sew?" *smacks the object he's talking to* "Boom! Get her to sew that!" Can anybody explain this?

Chosen answer: It's not so much a joke with a punchline, but more like a funny phrase. He was affiliated with the mob, and as such, has most likely been in violent situations. He asks "does your mother sew" and then punches his refelection in the fire extinguisher case (someone's face if a fight was really happening). The "get her to sew that" comment implies that the person he hit would have needed stitches. (thus the reference to sewing.)

Jazetopher

He was referring to fixing the hole left in the clothes after being shot.

Question: In the foursome dinner scene, Cathy checks under the table and sees something about Sarah's feet that heightens her suspicion about the affair. What does Cathy see? The camera seems to focus on Sarah's painted toenails, but I don't understand why that would arouse suspicion.

Chosen answer: In the book it explains that the color is one that only a young teen would like, and a mature woman would never wear, unless she were too in love to notice that it was gaudy.

Question: Why isn't Owen Wilson credited anywhere in the film? He had a rather large role to not be a part of the credits.

Dedderbot Premium member

Chosen answer: According to IMDB, Wilson's role was originally just a cameo (thus no need for a credit), but his character tested well with audiences, so his role was enlarged.

Question: Why was Daisy keeping the old chicken dinners under her bed?

Chosen answer: It is very common for bulemics, as Daisy was, to be embarrassed by the food they eat. It's only natural for her to want to hide her eating habits. She states that when she gets 5, she has to throw them away. You imagine the smell of 5 rotting chicken carcasses under your bed after 5 days. Her father seemed to be a very powerful man so therefore she has some special treatment and is allowed to indulge a little. As long as she's eating, they'll let her have the chicken.

Question: Where does the web go once Spiderman is done swinging from it?

Chosen answer: Per extras on the DVD, the web dissolves after a few minutes.
