Dear 100 Hour Board,
My wife and I recently watched the movie "Death Becomes Her" (1992) and we really enjoyed it. But one thing keeps bothering me: what the heck did the magic potion actually do??
Okay, so when the two main characters first take the potion it magically makes them young again. It's basically water from the fountain of youth.
But then, after one character breaks her neck and the other gets a big hole blown in her abdomen (btw, how does she remain upright with most of her spine missing?) the characters just sort of...keep living. Is this just an unfortunate side effect (i.e., "do not take magic youth potion if you are pregnant or nursing. Possible side effects include headache, nausea and eternal undeath.")
I mean, I don't exactly have a Ph.D. in magic potion-ology (...I was 5 credits short when they cut the program) but it seems like magic potions either:
1) Make you young
2) They make you a horrible wrinkly zombie.
But a potion that does BOTH?? Yeah, I guess I'm just plain...
It was a mixture of the two, clearly. The maker of this particular potion figured out a secret, safe way to mix the potions with those two different effects without explosions or corrosive results (so to speak), and what you saw in this movie was the product.
Were you looking to try? Because without that degree, I'd strongly suggest against it. That last five credits are the most important of the whole program ...
