Question: A woman named Hannah Groves is credited in the movie as Rita, but I don't remember anyone named Rita in the movie. Can someone tell me who she is?

Chosen answer: Somewhat confused by this, as a check down the cast listings for X-Men, X-Men 1.5 (the extended version) and X2 (just in case) has failed to show any credit for either an actress or character with those names. Nor is there a Hannah Groves listed on the IMDb. Your information may simply be wrong.

Question: Captain Oveur was saying things to Joey. What I didn't understand is the jokes behind the lines "Have you ever been in a Turkish Prison" and "Do you like movies about gladiators." What are the jokes behind these? Please explain. Thank-you.

Chosen answer: All of his questions to Joey are filled with homosexual innuendos; the perverted captain is trying to see if Joey has any such tendencies. In a Turkish prison, men who are sexually frustrated will resort to "companionship" with other men (even forcefully). Movies about gladiators depict ripped, muscular men, and the question about seeing a "grown man naked" obviously fits the pattern.

Question: Does Ralph have some form of learning difficulty?

Chosen answer: Its fairly obvious that its either a learning difficulty or his intelligence is not too high. His character has varied at times, in early seasons he was able to continue simple conversations like in the episode "I Love Lisa". In more recent seasons his character has trouble even doing that and cannot handle even the most simple of tasks.

Question: I forget his name, but he's the cop that rescues Max at Fever, and Vincent shoots him. I'm just wondering does he die? It shows him putting on bullet proof vest and it shows he gets shot in the chest so I'm not sure.

Chosen answer: Vincent's standard shooting pattern is established as two in the chest, followed by a head shot. We see Fanning get hit twice in the chest, then, as the camera cuts to shot Vincent, he fires a third shot, presumably into Fanning's head, killing him.

Question: Does anybody know were I could find footage of the Peeves scenes, as I am interested in what they are.

Chosen answer: The footage has never been shown. It's not available to be shown either, but it's rumored to be the same footage when Peeves first comes up in "Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone" on the PS2.

Question: How old is Raoul? In the film, they mention that he and Christine were childhood friends, but at the auction in the beginning he looks the same age as Madame Giry who is old enough to be Christine's mother.

Chosen answer: He is roughly the same age as Christine, who is 17 in the movie. Raoul appears to be in his early twenties. The woman called "Madame Giry" in the opening scene is Meg Giry, who was a few years younger than the others.

Question: In the final episode of season 6, Charlotte and Anthony are shopping in Chanel. Anthony says 'I know some gays who got a kid for like a hundred bucks' but in the dvd version, he says 'I know some gays who got a kid and they, like, love it'. Why was his dialogue changed?

Chosen answer: Stating that a gay couple BOUGHT a child for only a hundred dollars was complained about.

Question: What is that thing the killers (and Sydney) used for the Ghostface voice, and where can I get one of those?

Chosen answer: Type "Scream voice changer" into a search engine.

Cybermoose

Question: I have seen on many posters that the tagline for this film is " Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit". Did I read the poster incorrectly, or is there a translation for this?

Chosen answer: "Lorem Ipsum Dolor..." is the beginning of a piece of nonsense text that typesetters often use to hold the place where the actual text will be when it is written. You have either vastly misread the posters or seen a lot of pre-production posters.

Myridon

Question: What happened to the Scarecrow? Rachel just tasers him and he rides of into the shadows seemingly still alive?

Chosen answer: Exactly. The filmmakers set it up so that he can reappear in a sequel. Comic book villains (in more recent movies, at least) are very rarely killed, they somehow always survive to possibly come back later on.

Question: Does anybody know what music the Mexicans are playing in their car? I like it.

Chosen answer: It is a cut/mix of "So Ruff, So Tuff" by Roger Troutman (lead singer of Zapp). I think this is a extended mix of it. It contains the beginning of Zapp's biggest hit "More Bounce to the Ounce" which was off their first self-titled album "Zapp" (1980). This has been used and sampled in Hip Hop songs for over 20 years. Roger Troutman put out his first solo album the next year in 1981 (Many Facets of Roger). This contained the single "So Ruff, So Tuff".

Luna Negra

Question: After the race at the beginning, Dom leaves his car at a car park and heads home. The police stop him and he runs, only to be picked up by Brian. Surely the police would know where he lives and call round later to question him about the evening's events?

Chosen answer: There are two ideas of why the police did not come around. Firstly they might have found out after the car chase that Brian was an undercover cop so it would be more effective to allow him to try and discover information instead of going around and arresting Dom. The other idea is that the police might not have enough to arrest him. Dom was not the one driving when they found him and other than racing, it might be tough to arrest him.

The One With Russ - S2-E10

Question: Is the guy who plays Russ Ross with a fake nose (or make up), because the credits say Snaro plays Russ, but it looks so much like Ross so can some one tell me who plays Russ.

Chosen answer: It is David Schwimmer playing Russ. A couple of behind-the-scenes Friends books say that he chose to put this in the credits as a tribute to a friend.

Dr Muppet

Question: Jackson, the sniper of Miller's crew, states that if he was in a mile of Adolf Hitler, he would kill him. So, as they were driven to the beach, why didn't Jackson and other snipers try to pick off the the German guys who were firing the at the boats as the Americans left them?

Chosen answer: Sniping needs stability - the movement of the waves under the boat would disrupt their aim so badly that they wouldn't have much hope of hitting anything.

Question: Is there going to be a spin off series in the near future?

Chosen answer: None have been announced.

Question: Sean Bean's character is 006 in this film, 009 died in Octopussy, 003 died in A View to a Kill, and 007 is obviously James Bond. My question is this: have any of the remaining 00's been seen in other Bond films (or perhaps in the novels)?

Chosen answer: 002 and 004 are both seen in the opening sequence to The Living Daylights. There are also numerous other 00 agents who appear in briefing scenes during both Thunderball and The World Is Not Enough, although their actual numbers are not revealed.

Question: During the climax, as Charlie is walking down the hall, he is saying something that sounds like quiet chanting. This is after he has finished singing 'Daddy's gonna buy you a Mockingbird'. Does anyone know what he's saying?

Chosen answer: He keeps singing "mockingbird" over and over, but it is more of a mumbling by this point. Turn on the subtitles and you can see this.

EMTurbo

Question: How does Bourne set off/stop the car alarms near the end of the movie? I'm guessing it's the thing with the aerial he puts on his car dashboard - what is that?

Chosen answer: An official, CIA-approved, car alarm setter-offer, most likely just made up for the movie.

Question: In the James Bond universe, are 00 numbers unique, as in only one person can ever have them? For example, Sean Bean's character was 006. So after he died, would his designation be given to someone else, or is the number considered "retired"?

Chosen answer: The numbers appear to be passed on to other agents: it is mentioned that Scaramanga killed 002, and another 002 is killed in "The Living Daylights".

Question: Was the third verse of "Hosanna" (where Christ urges the crowd to "sing out your songs, but not for me alone") written for the film? I haven't heard it in any other versions and in most foreign versions of the stage play the verse is not included.

Chosen answer: Yes it was written for the film, and was not used at all before that. The director Norman Jewison asked Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice if they wanted to make some changes to the play before the movie was made, and they agreed by writing that verse, the additional song "Then We Are Decided" and incorporating "Could We Start Again Please" from the Broadway version. However in most stage productions I have seen the additional "Hosanna" verse and "Could We Start Again Please" are included."Then We Are Decided" remains unique to the film.
