For example: Why didn't Bernie ever develop rigor mortis?
Magic Mike: Why doesn't he just sell his furniture on the internet?
Julie & Julia: why doesn't anyone ever comment on how odd Julia sounds or what a raging narcissist Julie is?
OP - Reverse Viagra
Why doesn't Tom Hanks call the airline and have them send his son back in "Sleepless in Seattle" instead of jumping on a plane on the off chance he can find him in NYC?
ps, Nora Ephron was a hack.
"Why didn't Bernie ever develop rigor mortis?"
Rigor mortis can pass in a few hours, or may never develop in warm climates.
"why doesn't anyone ever comment on how odd Julia sounds or what a raging narcissist Julie is?"
She was a New York wannabe writer. Raging narcissism is considered normal behavior for them.
How was Tom Cruise able to be a spy in the Mission Impossible movies? Wouldn't people recognize him as that guy that looks just like Tom Cruise?
In THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, how come Clarice can't see Buffalo Bill while she's stumbling about in the dark? When we're shown him in the night vision goggles, he's clearly visible and there's a light emanating from above (the shadows point south).
In Signs, why did the aliens attempt to conquer a planet consisting mostly of water when that is the one thing that kills them?
Rigor mortis, depending on conditions only lasts about 72 hours. Don't know the story you refer to but perhaps they did not find him before the RM is over.
In WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S, Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman find him on the same day he's murdered. Rigor mortis starts 3-4 hours after death and can last up to 2 days, after which the joints/muscles relax. The whole movie takes place in one weekend (hence the title) so Bernie should've been stiff as a board for its entire length, but the guys are able to manipulate his limbs as if he were a puppet.
Way to go, R8. Way to quote the most over asked movie question of the 2000s. Your originality astounds me.
Actually R11, I was just about to post that R8 wins the thread. I've actually never heard that question asked and thought it was pretty clever and makes a lot of sense; though I'll admit I'm not the biggest movie buff in the world.
Oh, and you're an asshole.
Why didn't Scarlett O'Hara just behave her damn self and enjoy being a rich, kept Antebellum lady?
(p.s. r11 sounds like a cunt and the asshole everyone avoids inviting to the party.)
R12, you must have been born yesterday then. Welcome to the world. The question was asked TO DEATH when the film was released. Hell visit any film message board and look for topic, it'll be there.
R11/14: For someone who's raging about another poster stating the obvious, you ignore the fact that NOT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD READS FILM MESSAGE BOARDS.
R8 R12 please regale us with your non-obvious answer to this question since you seem to know so much.
"Looper": Why have the Loopers killing older versions of themselves? Why not have someone else kill the Looper?
And what was up with JGL's funky makeup?
Google Signs Aliens Water and you will find tons of people asking this question for the last 11 years. Next you'll be patting yourselves on your backs for discovering that Alanis isn't using the right use of Ironic.
r18 Jeez you're a dick.
R18 also had to watch the entire King's Speech to find out it wasn't about Martin Luther King, Jr.
Congratulations for stealing that joke from comedian Brian Regan, R20. Now go sit in the corner next to R8 and write 'I will not cheat' 100x.
Ok, this problem originates with the book, but the problem was not correct in the movie. Silence of the Lambs gets just about everything regarding sewing and dressmaking wrong. First, nobody seems to know the difference between a dart and a gusset, Second, skins shrink considerably in the tanning process. One simply cannot cut a pattern piece out of a raw skin and have it fit when properly tanned. Third, nobody who appreciated good sewing material, even if it is human skin, is going to leave perfectly good material behind. The killer would have removed as much usable skin as possible and not just taken what he needed.
And yes, this is the Mary-est reply ever.
R22 MARY FUCKING MOTHER OF GOD...
[quote]Magic Mike: Why doesn't he just sell his furniture on the internet?
No one buys furniture on the internet.
R22, check yourself into bellevue. something is not quite right with you.
It puts the lotion on it's skin...
In The Devil Wears Prada, why didn't Annie bitchslap any of her friends who hate her for having a job?
In Dressed to Kill, how did Bobbi know where Angie was going to be in the hotel? She can't have known that she would forget her wedding ring.
R22 just KOed this thread.
I always laugh in action movies when an escape is made through air vents in multi-floor buildings. I have been in many, many office buidings in my life, but I have never seen vents so large that one merely has to pop the cover off and climb through to safety. Another thing: When trapped in an elevator, the hero always makes his escape through the hatch in the ceiling. The hatches are always easily accessible and unlocked. Convenient.
Three men of science, find themselves on a planet that has the same atmosphere as earth, the same mass, the same moon and the same 24 hour day. They encounter a population that speaks English and yet, despite all this, it never occurs to them that they are in fact, on earth.
In Back to the Future, why didn't 1955 Doc from just remember to put extra plutonium in the car in 1985?
If Babs Johnson was the filthiest person in the world, why was she so appalled to get a turd in the mail?
Wet streets at night.
EVERY MOVIE EVER MADE!!!!
Even in the desert.
Every charred corpse has a full head of hair, particularly women. Hair would be the first thing to burn.
Why do so many movies show a "reading of the will" when there is no such thing? A will is executed by the executor and there is no such thing as some sort of get together where it is read out as if attending some kind of class. Of course if someone wants to do that they can, but there is no legal requirement that it be done.

I was wearing a wig, okay? Bitch. Now everyone knows.
Sarah Jessica Parker is frequently portrayed as an object of male desire.
I can smell r22's cunt.
I know what you mean, R22. It drives me crazy sometimes, the way supposed chefs in movies and TV hold their knives wrong.
Adding to R29 air vents are dirty things full of dust and the bad end of the nails and rivets used to construct them
