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: When Paul knocks on Holly's door and she isn't wearing anything, she says to him "would you turn around? Oh, never mind, it's such a silly line anyway - I'll turn around instead." What joke is she referring to?
Question: During the opening credits, a song by Johnny Cash is played called, 'When the Man Comes to Town', or something like that. Is it the original song (i.e. not changed at all for the purposes of the film)? Also, can anyone tell me what Bible passage is recited at the end of it? Thanks.
Question: There seems to be a major plot hole in this film. A big deal is made about dissuading Truman from leaving the town. If he was raised and educated in the studio, surely they could have simply taught him that there was nowhere to run to, that the town where he lived was all that existed. Is the answer to this ever explained in the film?
Question: Sati is the daughter of two programs..I really don't understand how two programs can mate. How's it possible?
Question: I still can't access the easter egg on my DVD and I would really like the chance to watch this movie from beginning to end in that order. I have the limited edition 2 disc set. It's frustrating because the directions people are giving are not specific at all. Please, please, somebody just explain it to me one step at a time, because it says to go to special features, but which picture is the special features? On the main menu are nothing but little pictures of random stuff like a book, telephone, etc. Which one is the special features and do what from there?
Question: I'm probably going to regret asking this but what is Buck supposed to have done with the tub of Vasalube to account for how it looks in the film?
Question: How come there were suddenly dead Greeks lying on the beach, apparently killed by plague? Was there really a plague or what happened?
Question: Maybe this is just an assumption of mine, but since Malcolm is dead why can't he see the other dead people, ie the three hanging in the school?
