I've seen on eBay with expired film that the film has been kept in the freezer (plus another thread talking about the ice box) or somewhere cold. Can someone please explain to me why, are you suppose to keep it in the freezer for current and expired?

Cooler temperatures slow down the chemical reactions which cause film to deteriorate.
"Professional" film was usually sold refrigerated for this reason. The only real downsides to keeping film cold are a) the 'frig/freezer space and power needed to keep it that way, and b) you need to let it come up to ambient shooting temperature before using it.
