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: What is the music the music box plays (the tune is heard during the Jesse dream sequence mostly)? Was it written for the movie? If it was, what is it called and where can I find it, and if it isn't, is it possible it uses some of the same chords as another song and I am picking up on that one? If this is the case, what is the other song that it sounds like? I've heard of such things happening, for example one of the songs from Aladdin. I've searched and I can't find the answers to anything.
Question: I've heard that the kidnappers names are Carl and Gaear. Where in the film is this fact established?
Question: Probably it's for dramatic impact, but it seemed strange that Ryan Reynolds' character would rush out to the boathouse on seeing the red balloon. It would have made more sense to check her room first, but he leaves (and even dives into the icy lake) without telling anyone. If it was out and out panic, wouldn't he wake his wife? Apart from as a plot device, any ideas why?
Question: After Brian and the others escape the Bangor airport and are on their way back to LA, before they get to the time rip, Brian says to Nick that he wanted kids and she didn't and he did "something that he never thought he'd do" and that he always wanted to tell her sorry. What was that thing he did that was so bad, there is no mention of what he did unless he is talking about the divorce. Could someone please clarify this?
Question: After the girl receives the gift of power and walks out along the beach and there are all the dead sea animals. What is the significance of them being gifts if any. And why sea animals.
Question: What is that gun thing that is pushed into the guy's neck after he says "I thought this was a currency exchange?" Is the guy dead or just knocked out?
Question: All of the actors in this film are actually credited as either themselves, or their character in the Jack Slater films (eg. the reporters recognise Tom Noonan as himself at the film premiere). However, the actress playing Whitney is actually called Bridgette Wilson, not Meredeth as Danny points out. Why was this?
Question: Does anyone know why the Three Little Pigs have a German accent?
Question: This movie wouldn't be anything special at all in these days; now they put everything into the computers and voilà. So, could anybody tell me (with direct examples) how did they make the interaction between Toons and humans without any CGI?
Question: Aside from the battles Eminem does with the extras in the special feature, how many of the freestyles in the film are actually spontaneous?
Question: I remember watching this in a cinema while i was in America and at the end when Fiona goes to kiss the prince she headbutts him instead. But when i got it on DVD in the UK she doesn't headbutt him but hits his neck. I guessing they changed this for the violence rating, but my question is: is this only changed on UK DVD or everywhere?
Question: Does anyone know why the deleted scene in the DVD was cut from the release?
