Continuity mistake: When Sarah enters the replica of her bedroom in the junkyard, she has no lipstick on. As she is sitting at the vanity table, a fresh coat of red lipstick has been applied to her lips between shots. She does hold a tube in her hand, yet she never applies any. Then as the replica bedroom begins to collapse, it is apparent that there is now no lipstick on her lips. (01:10:00)

Labyrinth mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Hoggle wears a small orange jacket, and a brown leather belt (which has many objects attached to it, such as keys, a pipe, etc.,) which is attached to at the top, on the right side of his jacket, which runs diagonally across his body.However when Hoggle says "Me? I wouldn't go either way," the whole top portion of his body is visible, and you can clearly see that the leather belt is not attached at the top of his jacket. It seems to have gone in this shot. However after he says "You know your thing, you take to many things for granted," the belt is now back, reattached to the top of his jacket. (00:16:55)

General questions

Are there any films which have ever been remade twice?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Plenty. The Front Page was remade as His Girl Friday, which was remade as Switching Channels. There were several versions of The Ten Commandments. Numerous versions of Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet (Laurence Olivier, Mel Gibson, and Kenneth Branagh, to name only three). The King and I was a remake of Anna and the King of Siam, which was later remade as Anna and the King. Also Brewster's Millions, Peter Pan, and many others.

Airplane (1980)

Question: Captain Oveur was saying things to Joey. What I didn't understand is the jokes behind the lines "Have you ever been in a Turkish Prison" and "Do you like movies about gladiators." What are the jokes behind these? Please explain. Thank-you.

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: All of his questions to Joey are filled with homosexual innuendos; the perverted captain is trying to see if Joey has any such tendencies. In a Turkish prison, men who are sexually frustrated will resort to "companionship" with other men (even forcefully). Movies about gladiators depict ripped, muscular men, and the question about seeing a "grown man naked" obviously fits the pattern.
