14 'Unanswered' Movie Questions (That Have Been Answered)
Everyone loves a good plot hole -- some dangling, unanswered question that clearly the creative types didn't notice and left hanging like a bunch of dummies. And that's great. This is Cracked dot com, we built our website way back in 1958 by being the first and only website to entertain wild fan theories, explore unanswered implications, and tease out hidden storylines. Don't bother fact-checking whether or not websites OR fan theories existed in 1958, by the way. Trust us, we were there. We're all immortal, here at Cracked. We watched Marty McFly storm Doc Brown's barn in real time, and devoted the rest of our lives to creating an online space where we explored that fateful evening.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Sometimes those supposed danglers aren't dangling at all. The answer is on the cutting room floor in a deleted scene, or in the book, or in an author interview. Rendering all of our hard work to the realm of “what if?” But truth, as they say, is lamer than fan fiction…
Unfortunately, sometimes they're also kinda stupid.
