    -The bunny, who is his sister boyfriend (and he dont know) dies on the second world when donnie shoot him, so he have super power and can come back to the 2nd word as a "spirit" or something like this.

    - The bunny is trying all movie make donnie do the right things to him fix the things, and donnie do it right.

    - Then Donnie come back to the real world and dies. The bunny thing can be proven when at the end of the movie, when the turbine is almost falling on his house, there is a diffence from the begging of the movie :Now the the boyfriend who let his sister on his house, before he dies, is honking, trying to alert him.

    -so the bunny is the fucker of the movie
    -because he is the boyfriend of donnie sister, and he is killed by donnie on the second world.
    -the when the bunny goes do the 3rd world, he would like to help donnie fiz evertyhing on the second world to donnie save your life on the first world.
    -so the bunny was thinking in saving his girlfriend and donnie lifes and Donnie was doing it to save the world.

    I love this movie, this has been one of my favorite movies of all time. Its so funny that 90% of the movie is just pointless you could just watch the last 20 mins and you would get everything.

    quote-"go suck a fuck"

    hahhahah..still makes me laugh

    I thought somebody was talking about me for a second :)

    "Every living creature on earth dies alone" is probably the best quote from the movie. My favorite part is though:

    "Do you want your sister to lose weight? Tell her to get off the couch, stop eating twinkies and maybe go out for field hockey. You know what? No one ever knows what they want to be when they grow up. You know it takes a little, little while to find that out, right, Jim? And you... yeah, you. Sick of some jerk shoving your head down the toilet? Well, you know what? Maybe... you should lift some weights, or uh, take a karate lesson and the next time he tries to do it, you kick him in the balls." - Donnie Darko

    glad youre all love this movie too, donnie darko is one of my favourite! a melancholic, strange out of the world, and moving open intepretation movie

    in the ending where every char showed with his/her problem and the song kick right there is just amazing! hate but pity that phedopilic teacher at the same time

    any other quality movies like this? i also love memento, great expectation, requiem for a dream, and lolita

    i always interpreted that Donnie figured out how to pass through the wormhole and go back in time and change the way things turned out by not leaving his house that night when the piece of the airplane fell on his house, because he had figured out that he was supposed to die when that happened but didn't. so in turn that messed everything up and got his gf killed. therefore he went back in time to make things right again.

    i'll prolly watch it, but it probably won't be that good. at least they got the actual actress from the original to return.

    ok, i just read the explanation of the movie and it makes a lot more sense to me now.

    this sums it up:

    October 1, 1988. Donnie is on the hill, looking at the sky, laughing. He rides his bike home and goes to sleep.

    October 2, After midnight, Donnie is woken up by Frank-Bunny, saving him from a jet-engine crashing into his room. The jet-engine is actually from October 30, disappearing through a time corruption 28 days into the past. This catastrophic event distorts spacetime and creates a Tangent universe (TU). In the Tangent Universe, Frank-Bunny guides Donnie Darko on a 28 day journey through this alternate tangent dimension to save the universe:

    October 30, Tangent universe: After his journey through the TU, which we witness in the movie, the jet-engine breaks off the plane (that his mother and sister are coincidentally on), and from the Tangent universe, Donnie using a wormhole sends it back to the Primary universe (PU), giving it a reason for being. The only object that went back in time from the tangent universe to the primary universe was the jet-engine. In doing so the tangent universe and everything in it is replaced by the primary universe, and time is reset to:

    October 2, Primary universe: Jet-engine appears in the Primary Universe (without explanation to everyone but the viewer), Donnie and everyone else are reset and repositioned. Primary-Donnie, back in bed, is killed by the Jet Engine.
