Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: Monica and Rachel pretend to be watching Ross being stupid at his window, but really it is cardboard cut-outs of Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox but they refer to them as Pammy and Yasmin (Baywatch). This sounds funny, but I understand the joke but don't think it's funny cause it's obviously the actresses (Jenn and Courtney) so are they just poking fun?
Question: On the some versions (TV), when Al walks in the lobby to check it out, right before he gets to the elevators and then leaves, the camera pans to the left and you see a terrorist with a machine gun waiting for him. On other versions (VHS) you don't see this terrorist. Why? NOTE: I've seen both on the same TV set.
Question: Is there any reason why the title of the movie was changed to "Suddenly 30" for the Australian release?
Question: What was that tune that Ray was playing on the piano just after he offered his 3 backup singers $30 a week?
Question: At the beginning of his experiment, Dr. Octavius is wearing goggles. One lens is brightly colored from the reflection of the fusion, and the other is dark. Is this supposed to foreshadow that he will soon have a split personality between his good side and his evil side?
Question: Forgive me, but I was puzzled by Jango's jetting himself into the fray during the Battle of Geonosis and taking on Mace Windu. It seems inspired by (and/or justifying - depending on how you look at it) his son Boba's jetting onto the skiff during Return of the Jedi. However, in both cases, with all the laser fire, light sabers, and dangerous creatures involved, it seems like a really stupid idea and a bit out of character. Their nature doesn't seem to lean towards such an impulsive move. In Jango's case, Count Dooku didn't order Jango to attack (verbally or even in gesture). Previously he had served as guarding Dooku, which he abandons by going after Mace. While it could be argued that Jango marks Mace simply because he might resent having a sword against his throat, I don't see why he would launch himself so close to the battle. In his battle with Obi-wan, he didn't get really close until the saber was knocked out. It would've made more sense if he hung back and launched something from a distance. The only other reason for this sequence is to conveniently have Jango out of the picture when the clones arrive. (And to start off Boba)
Question: Beatrix has been in a coma due to a fatal gunshot wound to the head. Is it even possible to give birth to a child in this condition? I'd guess it wouldn't survive after the gunshot trauma.
Question: Is there any story as to why the overall quality of this production was much less than the first Mortal Kombat? For example, the computer-animated creatures and morph effects seemed much worse than the first movies, and certainly worse than any other movie of the year. Also, the costumes and sets were of a lower quality than the first movie. Everything seemed to be a step down from Mortal Kombat 1. You would think that the sequel would have a bigger budget, but it seemed just the opposite with this movie.
