Question: I started watching a movie the other night, but fell asleep midway through and have no idea what the title of the movie was about. There were two women in a female prison/jail and they were in the gym talking. A few minutes later a guy walks in. He was either doing construction work there or was a janitor/maintenance worker. Him and one of the girls have sex behind the bleachers and he leaves. But he falls in love with her and marries her when she gets out of prison/jail. Anyone?
Question: Does anyone know a movie that begins with a witch transporting a woman's child (in utero) to a cow before birth? I believe it's the same movie that has some magical creatures that have bat-like wings that envelop unsuspecting humans and devours all but their bones in a matter of seconds...anyone know of this film (name and year made)?
Question: I'm having trouble finding a movie I saw on Netflix a couple years ago. It was about a 17 year old boy that enters college early and ends up being attracted to an older classmate in his art class. He ends up sleeping with her and finds out she has a 14 year old daughter who ends up liking him. When he doesn't like her back she falls into bad company, and a guy tries to force her into sex, but the 17 year old shows up with a cop and saves her.Grimsystem
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie from the 80's that played on HBO often. From what I can remember, there is a blond teenage boy who accidentally hits a girl on a bike with his car and kills her. I believe she was going to the store for her mother for a loaf of bread and it was dark and raining outside. Sometime later, the boy ends up dating the dead girl's sister not knowing she's the sister of the girl he killed. The mother sort of freaks out when he's introduced to the family. Any ideas? The blond guy had wavy/curly hair and played in a few movies back in the 80's. Thank you.
Question: I am looking for the title of a heist/bank robbery movie from the 60s, 70s or early 80s in which the robber, along with his (female ?) accomplice gets himself locked up in the vault. Since the vault cannot be opened before the next working day, he has a whole week-end to open several deposit boxes and put their contents in a deposit box of his own. When the vault can finally be opened again and he is "rescued", nobody knows the boxes have been robbed.
Question: There is a movie with a girl from another country who is in a prearranged engagement and before she is supposed to wed she gets to travel. In her travels she meets a young man and falls in love. Once being sent back to where she came the young man finds her and wants to break her out. Throughout the movie they speak English as well one or two other languages. I remember seeing the title once but it was in another language so I cannot recall it. Can you help me? Thanks.
Question: I'm looking for a movie I watched at school. It was about a teenage girl who gives birth to a daughter, but because of her age she can't raise her, so the child is given up for adoption to a childless couple who raise her. 2 years or so later, the teenager decides that she wants her daughter back, and so goes to court to fight for her. Any help in finding this movie would be much appreciated.Heather Benton
Question: I'm looking for the name of a movie that was made in the last 10 to 15 years, not in the U.S. But it was in English (not sure if it was dubbed). This 20 something guy drove a trash truck, met this wizard or something from another dimension who trained him to fight bad guys from other dimensions, all the while trying to form a relationship with a girl who worked at some type of coffee house with Xmas lights on the inside. Is this familiar to anyone? Thank you.
Question: This is a movie I saw a couple years ago; I believe it was a Lifetime movie. I don't remember much. All I can recall was a baby crying in a high chair, kicking her black shoes, and the lady got frustrated and killed the baby. Then I remember her going to court. And at the end it was a big truck digging up dirt looking for the baby's body.
Question: There is a movie from the late 80s or early 90s. All I remember from it is that there was a father and daughter, the daughter got a part on a TV show and she had to cry and say the line, "I love the African Americans." She was supposed to hug the lady in front of her, but she ran off set to hug her dad instead. That's all I've got. I remember seeing an interview with the female director (casting director maybe?) of the movie who said that when the little girl came in to audition, she cried but had just gotten new glasses, so instead of rubbing her eyes to wipe away the tears, she rubbed her glasses.
Question: I remember watching a movie about 4 teenagers who gain powers. Two of them are siblings and the sister becomes evil. I think the movie is from the late 1990s or the early 2000s. Other than that, I don't remember much. If you could tell me the possible name of the movie, I would appreciate it.
Question: I am looking for this comedy movie that I saw back in the 90s. I remember one scene only and it's about a guy who pretends to be paraplegic to get money from a very rich girl. He tells her that the only one who can cure him is a German (or Austrian) professor and that costs a lot if money. His other friend is trying to expose him so he pretend to be the German professor and started hitting his legs with stick or a sword, but the other guy keeps denying any feelings.Acmilan2007
Question: I have been trying for years to find the title or anything about a terrifying gorilla movie I saw in the early 50's. It was in color and the first scene was a detective in a destroyed apartment, kneels down by a fireplace and a dead young woman falls headfirst (has been pulled up). As the movie progresses, each young woman killed was given a bracelet with a little bell on it. As with King Kong, the gorilla won't kill the last girl and is killed by police. Can you help?
Question: I am trying to find the name of a movie and all I have is a scene from it. I don't know the actors' names or even the time frame but the scene that I saw was a man in a white military looking uniform with blood on it stumbles out of the woods and there is a young mother on the side of a country road that is nursing her baby. The man then removes her baby and sucks her breasts until he is full and leaves her. The timeframe of the movie looked as if it were maybe WWII Russia or a foreign land. Can anyone help me?
Question: I remember watching a movie in the late 80's-early 90's that had a scene I can vaguely recall about a drawing of a house and a boy who gets trapped in it. Then the drawing gets thrown away and a garbage truck is about to compact it...and that's all I know. Do you know what movie this is? Thanks.
