Warning: This article is an analysis of the movie "Magnolia" and contains many spoilers.
Anyone who has seen the much praised film "Magnolia" has undoubtedly come out of the theater with some amazement, but the most enormous confusion about his end, especially the frog shower scene
A key aspect of interpreting the true meaning of this movie is hidden in his many references to Exodus 8: 2 of the Bible. The most obvious reference was in the scene just before the start of Kuiz's show. A woman is seen having a sign that clearly contains the words "Exodus 8: 2" but is quickly expelled from the audience for sure
Below are given other examples of references to numbers 8 and 2 in a film as indicated in the trivia section of imdb.com
o Weather forecast: 82% chance of rain
o The gambler needs 2 in the blackjack but gets 8
o The spiral of the rope, suicide
o The first temperature reading
o movie poster at the bus stop at Magnolia Blvd.
o poster of the attached prisoners
o boxes number
Barringer is number 682 of the mother and father of the apartment
o The Convention on Forensic Science begins at 8:20
o Delar Darion goes over a bunch of cards to reveal 8 up to 2 diamonds
Just after Jim Curring sees Donnie Smith climbing up the building, you can see a flash of a sign on the side of the road saying "Exodus 8: 2" (again seen when the frogs fall and hit the car on Curling)
o the number of the firefighter's plane
o in Marci's chest, the number of the criminal record is 82082082082
in the bar- the scene has two boards, the frog and the clouds, the result is 8 to 2

And here it is Ran 8: 2 –  And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go to Pharaoh and tell him: Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go to worship me.
And if you refuse to let them go, I'm going to smash all your boundaries with frogs. Another important piece of the puzzle comes from Dixon, the young boy who fought at Jim after the detection of the killings. The following is a sample of Dixon's rapping:
Check if the ego is coming out of it, I'm the Prophet,
You live to make yourself bigger with a chip on your shoulder. but the debt always wins
When the sun does not work, the good Lord brings rain.
Dixon calls himself the "Prophet," but can be interpreted as a continuation of God. He takes Jim's weapon after he's lost, but in the spirit of the frog, the pistol falls from the sky together with the frogs – a sign that the boy has some control over the events.
The second and third ranks of rap, warning Jim that he lives to move higher ("to grow up"), still has something that puts him in charge. Dixon tells Jim that what he's doing is not right and warns him to stop. However, Jim did not listen to the rapper, just as Pharaoh in Egypt did not listen to Moses. This message is not just for Jim, it also symbolizes the mistakes in the lives of all other heroes. The last line warns that if God is neglected, it will bring rain
An important note is that the heroes acknowledge their mistakes, but they can not overtake them. Claudia, for example, is addicted to cocaine but can not stop, Linda feels terrible guilt for Earl's deception, and tries to take away her name from her will, but she can not, and even Earl uses her extreme breaths to recognize her misuse with his son and his wife and praying for forgiveness by Frank, but he did not get it.
The rain of frogs means God's awakening to all. The rain of the frogs – the extremely strange, almost absurd situation – was a way for God to tell everyone that they had committed wrongdoes and had sinned. The spirit, however, is his message that he always watches over the world and can intervene to help when help is needed. After a rain of frogs, heroes seem or make peace with their problems and have succeeded, or in the case of Jimmy Gator's death, have failed. This shows that although God has help, it does not always work perfectly and always punished and not saved
Please note that this is not an official interpretation and that the glove compartment is one of the most discussed topics in the movie world . Accept my interpretation at your discretion and form your own opinions on what is most likely what the writer PT Anderson intended.
