Question: How did the terrorists find Tony's mark 1 suit?

Answer: Most probably they searched for it in the desert, based on the direction Tony flew during his escape.

Question: If Pym and Janet shrunk themselves smaller than any molecules, how did they get oxygen? (02:04:20 - 02:30:00)

Answer: They may have incorporated an oxygen system into their suits that shrinks with them. Other than that, it's likely the writers didn't realise this would be an actual issue and would therefore translate into being a factual error.

Question: How did they find the other altar boy who knew about the sex tape?

Answer: Since Peter is her date, she doesn't want her Dad to go overboard with questioning him and potentially make Peter uncomfortable and their date awkward.

Answer: Robotnik is a genius inventor and the quill is an incredible source of energy, so presumably he will use it to power whatever invention he can create that will help him escape the Mushroom Planet and return to Earth.

Question: By the end of the movie, the whole plan of the bad guys is to let Nyah in the middle of a populated city so that she infects a lot of people. But she just walks away to a cliff to kill herself. Even if Ethan failed to save her and kill Ambrose, the plan was not going to work. Or am I missing something? It sounds like a very poor plan to me if she could simply frustrate it by walking away.


Question: When they are stealing the list from Langley, Krieger is holding the rope to make Ethan go up and down. However, in some scenes he seems to need a lot of effort to do it, and in others he seems to be able to move up and down effortlessly and silently. What is going on?


Answer: Holding him still on the pulley is fairly simple, but moving him requires him to let a small amount of the rope to go at any one time. This takes a lot more effort. It also becomes more difficult once the rope slips from the pulley.

Question: Why does the other mother love eating bugs? Does it have something to do with the bugs in the shower in the beginning?

Answer: It's because she is meant to represent a spider luring and trapping her prey. (The kids).

Answer: Beldam is a human like spider who makes web to capture her prey (the children) so she loves those Coco beetles from Zanzabar snaking on them.

Question: Much is said about the infamous first released version with Judy Dench's real hand instead of a CGI paw, but I'm watching that same version now and ALL of the cats have real human hands. How is this not also a mistake? Or is it that the mistake is Dench's ring on her finger? Do the actors' human hands change to paws in the CGI-fixed second version?

Answer: The issue wasn't about her hand looking human but, as you mentioned, that she was wearing her own ring, which was digitally removed in the revised version.

Question: Why were the all the children "crying" at the dinner table in the first dinner scene?

Answer: Because they feel bad about the prank they played on Marie (putting a frog in her pocket). It's something they have done with all of their other governesses, but it seems that Marie is the first to call them out on it, in front of their father no less, and it makes them feel ashamed.

Question: What happened to Allyson's boyfriend after she left the dance following their fight?


Answer: It's never shown in the movie what happens. But there was a deleted scene where he got arrested for underage drinking after mouthing off to a police officer. Either way, he's safe for the time being, and the actor is currently slated to appear in the next sequel, "Halloween Kills."


Question: Was the scene where Gargamel is being held in jail filmed in an actual jail?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Where did the mobile vehicle suddenly come from on the back of the Dallas?

Answer: When Ryan goes to the shipyard, Skip tells him "We can get it anywhere in the world in 24 hours." The powers that be knew they would be needing it for the fake rescue, so had it sent to the Dallas which they had planned to meet the Soviet ship.


Question: How did Hanna find out about Michael? I was really confused on that part.

Answer: Richie, the brother of Vincent's informant Albert, was a cell mate of Michael. They happened to recently run into each other on the street and caught up. When Richie asked what Michael was up to lately, he kept insisting that he had nothing going on. Richie thought this was odd because Michael was known to him as an adrenaline junkie. Richie believed that Michael, who he knew in prison as "Slick", was part of the armored car heist he recently heard about. He is giving this information to Vincent because he wants the police to raid a rival car theft ring, eliminating his competition. The information he gives seems flimsy to Vincent until he hears the nickname "Slick", a name a witness heard during the armored car heist.


Question: Why did Dottie want to be traded to another team, and why was Kit traded?

Answer: Dottie wanted to be traded to alleviate the sibling rivalry between her and her kid sister, Kit. Instead, Kit was the who was traded because Dottie was the more talented player.

Question: How could Jenna not be pregnant at the time that the blackmail started?

Answer: Jenna may have said she was pregnant, doesn't mean she was. Another from her to keep the money rolling in from both father and son. At the trial, Dr. Warner said that the son was shooting blanks, his sperm was funky.

Question: Could Kimball really survive that fall at the dam? It looks impossible.

Answer: From the height shown, it would be virtually impossible to survive the fall. Even if someone managed to survive, their body would be horribly damaged.

Question: Why does Chiffon keep disappearing every time Wilbur turns into a dog?

Answer: I assume this is merely a movie plot device so that the audience does not get confused when Wilbur is in his dog form or that the other characters are wondering why there are suddenly two identical dogs.
