Question: Not sure this is a movie mistake. When the mom is sawing off her own head, wouldn't the sawing have stopped once she cut through her spinal cord? The muscles in her arms/hands would have gone limp and her head would not completely fall off - though it would fall forward. You don't actually see her head fall but you hear the bang on the floor and her head is missing at the end.odelphi
Question: What does Babe mean when she says "our sense of ironic detachment" (stating that Deeds doesn't share it)?
Question: Who is the older gray haired man who takes over after Costner as bodyguard? I've heard rumours that he is an actual bodyguard and served with Reagan or similar?
Question: When Gilleese sees the brake hoses are disconnected, why doesn't he just connect them there and then?
Question: Near the end, when Dean Wormer and Mayor DePasto are in the grandstand, officially launching the parade, there is an elderly gentleman in the background (also in the grandstand, about 2 levels up, on the left side of the screen) who is making odd, excited gestures and comical facial expressions. His appearance and odd mannerisms are so striking that he draws my attention away from the dean and the mayor every time that I've seen this film, and that's a lot of times. Surely, director John Landis must have been aware of the gentleman and his antics in the background through multiple takes, so it would seem Landis intended the peculiar distraction. Who was that gentleman, and was there any significance to his appearing in the scene?Charles Austin Miller
Question: During the "Angel of Music" scene, Christine sees the Phantom in the mirror. is the mirror a two way, and the Phantom is on the other side, watching her? or is it a hallucination? As well (related) the room that Christine is staying in after singing "Think of Me", is that her permanent room? Or is her bedroom the one in the cellar-type with wire beds? And the big, flower one is switched out for the lead? If it is her permanent room, the phantom has some explaining to do.
