Question: Exactly what are they referring to when they are in the car and Brad Pitt asks, "How many?" and Jolie answers something like, "312"?

Chosen answer: He's asking how many kills she's made. It's just worded such that there's an edge of innuendo to it.

Question: How does Mrs. Smith get to know that her husband is the shooter?

Answer: She notices that he shakes his right leg twice after peeing, just like her husband.

Answer: From the way he stands and moves, height, weight and general mannerisms.

Answer: They worked for different agencies and were unaware that they had been given the same target (Diaz?) to kill in the desert. Mrs Smith initially thought that Mr Smith was a civilian that just happened to interfere with her assignment. She was given 48 hours to identify and eliminate (kill) the "witness." While reviewing the videotape of the scene, all Mrs Smith could see was the back side of the "civilian." While still looking at him, a secretary or similar employee yelled from outside the room that Mrs Smith's husband was on the phone and was back from his trip to Atlanta. By the secretary saying, "It's your husband" during the time Mrs Smith was looking at his back side on the tape, plus the information that he was back from Atlanta, it became obvious to her... and she wondered how she could have been so stupid to not know before this time.

Question: After John and Jane killed all those people, wouldn't their boss send more people after them? And why don't the Smiths fear/anticipate/react to this fact/possibility? Is it me or does it seem the only way they could have a happy ending is die or they have to kill the boss and destroy all their records (Which they would probably die trying).

Answer: The boss probably decided to stop wasting resources on a lost cause.

Question: I understand that John and Jane work for different agencies but who does "Tank" work for? It seems unlikely that two competing agencies would need to bring in a third to solve the Smith problem, as they could both easily arrange for their deaths within their own organisations.

Answer: 'Tank' works for Jane's agency. At the beging he is being watched by David Keith who is Jane's boss (Seen briefly with a pixellated image on her computer screen).

Question: Sort of a technical question, but what type of camera was used to make this movie, film or digital? Also, there seemed to be a lot of shots made with a hand-held camera, was there any reason for this other than the "cool" factor of the camera moving through the shot? (The hand-held shots are generally the shots that are more "shaky" and such).

Answer: The director, Doug Liman, likes to do hand-held shots.

Visible crew/equipment: John pushes his newly captured prisoner into the back of the van Jane is in. As he closes the van door you can see an extra arm behind John's back moving over to hold the doors closed.

Jane: There's this huge space between us, and it just keeps filling up with all the things we don't say to each other. What's that called?
Counsellor: Marriage.

Trivia: A subtle clue that Brad Pitt is a secret agent/spy: he drinks vodka martinis with two olives - shaken, not stirred - just like that other famous spy, James Bond.
