  1. The school is John Abbott College in Montreal. It has approximately 7000 students.
  2. I don't think Duchovny was going to give up his lucrative optometry/matchmaking business to teach a person he knew was an adult mentally. Why would dropping out of high school further her academic success? The daughter was presumably on her way to honors level at school. The C giving teacher said she wasn't going to just let her slide by because other teachers were letting her. Then when she made better grades the teacher gave her the 'see I told you' look. She was upset that the African example lasted seven years. The 'scientist' said he didn't know if that was always the case because his scientific research only found one other similar case.
  3. I forgot to mention the great line where mom-in-daughter and Duchovny pull up to the school and she says something like I can't do this and Duchovny says, "You've read all her books. You're ready." As if she has crammed that in during all this hectic time.
  4. It seemed that there were several missing connections which were not shown that would have made more of a movie out of this. The guidance counselor is definitely hitting on Duchovny, which could have made for a jealous 'daughter' plot. The mom-in-daughter could have sowed her wild oats with either of the two losers (both giving intense I want you stares) or with the photography/journalism teacher who invited her over to his house for 'studies' which was then promptly dropped and never revisited. The French title "Si J'etais Toi" translates to "If I Were You" which makes for a better title. I ran across the blog of a guy who reviews movies made in or set in Montreal which brings yet another country into this United Nations of what was created where. (He also had a suspiciously similarly titled podcast called "Why Does It Exist"). The original movie "Himitsu" is on Netflix in case anyone wants to check it out.
  5. I thought that was supposed to show that there was a remnant of the mom in her that she will never lose. The previous comment on how the original Japanese movie has the mom tricking would make your interpretation make sense except that it wasn't really hinted at during the movie.
  6. Why were so many people getting blinded? The kid, Cusack, whoever the birds were attacking... it was a constant attack on the eyes.

    Episode 206.5 - Minisode 206.5

    Which couple? Like Hamlet, all the main characters died except Jackie Chan. I thought the movie was very straightforward. And if you cut out all the fight sequences, it would be about 45 minutes long. Have you ever seen a Jackie Chan movie? The long choreographed fight sequences are a signature touch.

    Episode 206 - Little Italy

    Let's focus on the real love story: Jogi and Jessie. Despite Jogi's attraction to older women and Jessie's Def Comedy Jam put downs, they have a more sensible plotline than Lay-O and Nikki. It was much more fun watching these two interact then the main characters. I would for sure watch a movie about these two. My question about them is why they wore ethnic styles to the wedding? Could the movie have been saved an R rating by dropping the blooper reel? It seems that all the heavy cursing ('F's) and deep sexual reference (Luigi's cock holder) were during that part. Also, why did Luigi need a cock holder in place at all? Couldn't they have just started the scene with the shorts under his butt and go from there?
  9. It wouldn't have been as dramatic as a sledgehammer but Statham could have just unplugged the phone from the wall or taken the receiver. Then the best she could have done was tap the wires together calling randos with no way to talk to them.
  10. I thought he was offering William H. Macy a spot on his squad but that Macy knew about it (perhaps they had a group that beat up some drug runners). Later when Macy starts shooting at Emmerich, he seems to have forgotten that Emmerich has a goon squad.
  11. Chris Evans knows he's been calling a landline because KB says that she has put the phone back together. The line he calls back (KB's) is then presumably a landline even though Statham either has it call forwarded or is using a cordless phone. Don't forget that, for whatever reason, this house has a phone that has several connecting lines which was shown when Dmitri (?) finds out KB is on the house line. I'm more concerned with Ryan parking wherever the hell he wants (at the pier, in front of the police station, RIGHT IN FRONT of the packed cell phone store,etc.) Also, is the kidnapper's house the same one that John Stamos lived in "Never Too Young to Die"? Same wooden staircases and sparse interior.

    Episode 200 - Action Jackson: LIVE!

    I know this is totally late but what about the first time Action and Vanity drive around she gives him a wet willy and then doesn't understand why he gets upset.
  13. He still had plenty of time to play Rain in Big Trouble in Little China the same year.
  14. How about "Operation: Stargrove" (Portuguese/Tagline: To hunt that gang they formed Operation Stargrove) or "Stargrove and Danja" (French/Tagline: Waterfalls. Prosecution. Fights. To cut the Soueele[?]) or "Lance-Never Die Young" (German/Tagline: He is only 18, and is already hunted by all) or "Not To Be Late" (Turkish/Tagline: When a student is unaware of everything, he has become the target of bloody killers)?
  15. Better than a Jeter fruit basket!
