spoiler:
Simon says I've seen the movie. But I already solved it before. So i'll make up a maths equation out of it.

x=3
y=5

4=4
4=2*2
4= 2(y - x)
y= x + 2
y= (2x + 4)/2
4= 2(((2x + 4)/2) - x)
4= 2((2x + 4)/2) - 2x
x= y - 2
4=2((2x + 4)/2) - 2(y - 2)
4=2x + 4 - (2y - 4)
4= 2x - 2y + 8
2= x - y + 4
-2= x - y
-2= 3 - 5 -> true

QED

AFAIR it's never explained how they reach the solution in the movie.

Hmm. Remember me, i can't, now that you mention this. Hmm-hmm. But they must have solved it, because in the end they marry.

Solution:
spoiler:

Fill 3 gallon bottle (subsequently 3gb).
Put contents of 3gb in 5gb.
Fill 3gb.
Put contents of 3gb in 5gb. After 2 gallons it is full and there is 1 gallon left in the 3gb.
Empty 5gb.
Put contents of 3gb (1 gallon) in 5gb.
Fill 3gb.
Put contents of 3gb in 5gb.

Voilą: 4 gallons in the 5 gallon bottle.

My physics teacher gave us that as homework one night... he wasted a whole 10 seconds of my life that it took me to figure out (no, I haven't seen Die Hard either).
