Question: What is the song that Christian is singing during the Roxanne dance scene? I recognise the words, but I think it is to a different tune.

Answer: Christian is not singing Roxanne, just the Argentinian. I believe Christian's words are original and not from a previous song.

Chosen answer: The words are from "Roxanne" by The Police, and the tune is "Le Tango du Moulin Rouge".

Question: I know it's an answer to a previous question, but I've just been so confused about the answer I had to ask again: Can Dracula's Werewolf Antidote work after 12 times of midnight on their first full moon? If it could, why did Van Helsing order Carl to kill him? If it couldn't work, why would Dracula even have it? Can someone please answer this question who is 100% sure they have the right answer?

Chosen answer: Dracula's antidote would turn the werewolf into a normal human but only if they recieved the antidote before the 12th chime of midnight. If they were too late he would not be able to turn back into a normal human. After seeing the picture in the house they were staying at Carl discovered that only a werewolf could kill Dracula, so when Van Helsing turned into a werewolf he told Carl to kill him if they were too late so that he would not remain a werewolf and do to people what he had spent his life fighting against. But Dracula also knew that was the only way for him to be killed, so he kept an antidote so if a werewolf turned against him he would be able to cure them and save himself.

Question: What was the total worldwide gross of Predator 1, and then Predator 2? Sorry but imdb doesn't have worldwide takings for either.

Chosen answer: Worldwide Gross for Predator 1 is $190,534,137, and Worldwide Gross for Predator 2 is $57,169,413.

Question: In one scene, Kazan is lead into a corner of a room to relieve his bladder. After three days, it would seem that all of them would have had to indulge in similar relief. How come no one was electrocuted through the urine stream, or there was no apparent damage done to the electrical systems of at least that room?

Chosen answer: The designers would anticipate that people might be in there for a long period of time - they presumably insulated the systems in the cubes against that particular possibility.

Question: What does the 'Not Alone' that was cut into Mirandas arm mean?

Chosen answer: At first, we think it means that Rachel was 'not alone' in being the victim, but we learn later that it means that there was more than one killer.

Question: Can anyone tell me what Katherine is drinking in the morning - the greenish blue drink - about which she says "Don't ask what it is"? I know its never answered in the movie, but can anyone make an educated guess?

Chosen answer: It's a health drink that is primarily made of seaweed and sea-kelp. It's actually not that bad tasting.

Ral0618

Question: Not from the movie, but there were two books actually printed that were mentioned in the harry potter books, called 'Quidditch Through the Ages', with the claimed author of Kennilworthy Whisp, and 'Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them' by Newt Scamander. My question is do these people exist or did J.K Rowling write these books as well, but since they were supposed to be Harry's schoolbooks did she use different names? Also, what exactly does IMBd stand for?

Chosen answer: Yes, J.K. Rowling wrote both of those books; she used the pseudonyms to make the books more realistic (as opposed to just being a HP spinoff). IMDb stands for Internet Movie Database, probably the premiere site online for movie information (http://www.imdb.com).

Question: I have thought what B.B. stood for in the second movie. I have come to the conclusion that it is possibly for Bill and Beatrix. This would make B.B., but has someone disproved or stated whether its true or not?

Chosen answer: You are correct, B.B. does stand for Beatrix and Bill. You may take a bow.

Tobin OReilly

Question: When Rudy says 'This ain't right, why is all of his stuff still here?', what does he exactly mean by that?

Chosen answer: I believe that Rudy was wondering why the posessions of a serial killer were still in the abandoned house that he grew up in. I believe he was questioning the authenticity of the items and suspected that they had been placed there for him and the others to find to make the show more interesting for the viewers. You'd think that his possesions would be examined by Dr. Loomis and maybe kept in an evidence locker or something. They did seem to give some insight into his mental problems. It's possible that A) They were fake and were placed there by Freddy, B) They were real and were placed there by Freddy, C) They were real and Michael "liberated" them from wherever they were being kept, or D) They were really just left there by the Myers family.

Charles Fraser

Question: Why is it that Chick isn't in the wedding scenes at the end?

Chosen answer: Watch the credits, he's there, in the first 30 seconds of the credits.

Question: Is the mother or daughter who sing "All I Want for Christmas" at the Christmas pageant an actual singer? The way the teacher introduced the mother who helped put the number together, he made it sound as though she was a well-known musician, so I wondered if that was true.

Chosen answer: Ruby Turner, playing Mrs Anderson is an accomplished singer. She started with Culture Club in the mid-80s and then went solo. Olivia Olson, playing Joanna, is also a singer. She won on Star Search and as far as I know has only released two songs. As for whether the Mom is supposed to be a real singer in the film, it's not made clear.

ChiChi

Question: I noticed on Andy's final moments video on the DVD, the month on the camera goes from May(When he explains the Hollywood Squares game.) To June when he finally turns to a zombie. Was the movie supposed to take place in a month or is that just a simple mistake?

Chosen answer: Yes, part of the point of Andy's video is to give the viewer the timespan of the film.

Grumpy Scot

Chosen answer: According to the season 9 episode Viva Ned Flanders, he is 60.

Deidra Goins

Question: What is the song that is played during Truman's high school dance, when he sees Sylvia get replaced?

Chosen answer: It's a cover of T-Rex's Twentieth Century Boy, performed by Big 6.

William Bergquist

Question: How can Data miss The Phoenix after locking on the Quantum Torpedos just by delaying pressing the button for a second,they were locked on after all.

Chosen answer: Data's quite intelligent enough to have caused the torpedoes to miss - the most likely circumstance is that they were never actually locked onto the Phoenix, but he altered the display to make it appear as if they were. He then deliberately fired them along a trajectory that would look like the correct one until the last minute, giving him time to get into position to break the plasma tanks.

Question: Did Vincent die from wounds sustained during the shootout in Annie's office, or was he mortally wounded only during the final exchange of fire on the train? At first it seemed he was hit in the office (he *was* knocked down from an impact), but he managed to chase them around the subway for quite a bit with no noticeable effects. In the train, it looked like all of Max's shots hit the door, but I may be wrong.

Chosen answer: Max's shot in Annie's workplace only skimmed the side of Vincent's head - not really that bad an injury, but enough to snap his head around, sending him to the floor. Vincent does indeed die from the wound sustained during the final exchange of fire. While at least one of Max's shots hit the door, from the damage seen, he's not trained with guns, so the bullets would be quite widely spread - obviously one got past the doorframe to hit Vincent.

Question: In the answer to another question, this DVD was supposed to be coming out on September 6th. But I still can't find it at my local video store. Is my town just to small to have bothered ordering it in (I live way out in the sticks) or is it not being released for general hire in Australia? (PLEASE answer, I missed this at the cinema and, as a devoted fan of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and British comedy in general, am desperate to get a hold of it).

Chosen answer: September 6th was the release for it on DVD in the U.K. not Australia. Its release in Australia for DVD is scheduled for the 9th of March. An Australian online rental company can be found here: http://webflicks.com.au/user/movieDisplay.php?movie_id=17716.

The Secret Box / Band Geeks - S2-E14

Question: Someone wrote that the song Spongebob sings at the end is part of a real song, "Wings of the Wind." But when searching for this songs' lyrics at Google, they don't include the lines Spongebob sings. On other websites, the song is identified as "Sweet Victory" and the singer was David Glen Eisley. Could someone please clarify this?

Chosen answer: The song was Sweet Vitory by David Glen Eisley. Not Wings of the Wind. Wings of the Wind might have been a remake that didn't include the part you were talking about.

Question: In the movie what year is the Napoleon Dynamite taken place?

Chosen answer: This question has been answered and it takes place in the school year of 2004-2005 as it states on Napolean's school ID in the beginning credits.
