Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix picture

Question: When Umbridge has Harry, his friends and the Slytherin students in her office, she asks Harry if he was going to warn Dumbledore. When he says he wasn't, she responds by slapping him in the face. In the background, Draco has a look of shock on his face. Considering the fact that he hates Harry, why would he react this way?

Answer: Draco is shocked because a teacher is never allowed to hit a student, not for any reason. He never expected Umbridge to behave in such a manner.

The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep picture

Question: Whose house was it? The mother mentioned she was not the lady of the house. Was she a caretaker?

Answer: When Captain Hamilton and his troop first arrive he is greeted at the front door by Mrs. MacMorrow, Kirstie and Angus. He then says, "The housekeeper, Mrs. MacMorrow, is making all the arrangements," whereupon he realizes HQ failed to notify her of their arrival. Then Mrs. MacMorrow says, "When Lord Killin went off to the RAF, only a few of us stayed on here...I'm afraid I really would need Lord Killin's permission." Later it is also made clear that the shed (where Angus hangs out and Lewis Mowbray stays) was used by his father, who was a caretaker on Lord Killin's estate.

Daddy Day Camp picture

Question: When the lights went out in the toilet den, why did Phil try to start a lighter and how did the whole den explode?

Answer: Earlier in the film, when the guys were talking to the banker about getting the camp ready, the plumber came out and said the bathroom had a methane problem and that it needed to be pumped (and a new septic tank and plumbing). The backed up tank is what caused the methane to build up in the bathroom. Methane is highly flammable and will cause an explosion if the gas mixture is right and there's a spark or flame (mines have exploded because of methane build up). When the lights went out, Phil lit the lighter to help him see in the dark better (although we don't really know what his full intention were, e.g. was he going to go see who turned the lights off, wipe, or just continue reading).

Meet the Robinsons picture

Question: Why would the pretty girl who plays with the trains be married to the obese, immobile Uncle Joey? Also, what is the joke when the old man says "That's Uncle Joey. He works out"?

Answer: Well you don’t have to be 'good looking' to be married. Second it is just meant to be ironic when he says "That's Uncle Joey. He works out" because when you work out you're meant to be in good shape but obviously he isn't so it seems in the future working out is what we call now, a slob.

Enchanted picture

Question: At the end of the film when we see the logo for the design company, briefly visible is Michaela Conlin (Angela from "Bones"), who I don't think had any lines in the film. She's credited on the IMDb as "May" - did she have lines deleted, or was this just a cameo of sorts (although she's not really famous enough for most people to recognise her)?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: Originally she was scripted to have a few scenes with Nancy, Robert's girlfriend, in the design studio. The Producers deleted some of those scenes. You can see that in the DVD under Deleted scenes, where she has a slightly bigger part and actually has a small conversation with Nancy about Robert's text message apology.
