Question: I don't remember much of the movie or TV show that I'm looking for, just a friendly monster/s in a kid's tree house. Can you think of anything that sounds like this? Thank you.
Question: I hardly remember the movie and it maybe came out in the 90's or early 2000's but I think Anthony Hopkins was in it. He was like a strange man in a small town who might have been boarding at this little boy's house. It's narrated by the boy, and he helps the boy overcome the bully. The boy's mom (subplot) is single and is falling for a coworker/boss. They went on a trip somewhere for business but he ended up getting drunk and beating her. I'll get back to that later. Anthony Hopkins calls out the bully on watching his mother change, and the bully lashes out on the little boy's friend (a girl) by beating her with a bat by the river. Her books float away, and she is taken to the boy's house where Anthony Hopkins helps her put her arm back in her socket. Now enters the mom who had just been beaten and she's bitter/mad and thinks Anthony is molesting the girl. That's all I remember.
Question: I'm looking for title of American comedy I've seen few years ago in Polish TV channel called "Polsat". I'm pretty sure it's from 1990 (or early 2000). I remember that two main heroes were black guys who wanted to visit their girlfriends to have sex. Unfortunately they forgot to buy condoms so their girlfriends send them to a store. Something happens which prevents them from buying the condoms. Later they decide to have "French sex" but their girlfriends send them to purchase protective "plastic sheets" (or something like that). They walk around all night and have many adventures. I also remember that in the end one of them finally has sex in hospital and uses a plastic glove as a condom. Anyway it's kind of dumb little comedy but I'd really like to know the title. Thanks in advance for help.ozzy_tom
Question: I am looking for a movie from the 80's or 90's that I believe is set in Australia. It features a boy in a mining town that has a legend of a beast living in a lake or deserted and flooded quarry. At the end of the movie we learn the beast is actually an old, sunken mining back hoe or other large piece of mining equipment.
Question: I saw a European movie circa 1970. It was a comedy about a henpecked husband who unexpectedly becomes a widower when his slave driving wife dies. He decides to go to bed and stay there which he does for the majority of the movie. He sends his dog to the store to get supplies and has ropes set up to get things around his room without having to actually get out of bed. The name of the movie was the name of the character and I can remember neither. It was a single word like "Arthur" but it wasn't that.
Question: What is the name of an old movie where either an escaped convict or asylum patient kidnaps a boy who turns out to really be a girl, the girl falls in love with him. He gets caught when he goes to town to buy her special curtains?
Question: I watched a movie (in the nineties, maybe late eighties) and I could have sworn a character was played by Kevin Bacon, but I have checked his films. The movie was based on a young woman who moved or arrived back into a town and she keeps on seeing a ghost of a little girl. There was also maybe an apparent murder or mystery in that town and Kevin Bacon was a young local who worked in a car workshop. From my memory she was warned off him, he was somewhat frowned upon, maybe from locals? She eventually got into a relationship with him and as I recall they had a love scene in a lighthouse? I just cannot remember the name of the movie or any actors. (This is not Stir Of Echoes as previously answered. In Stir Of Echoes Kevin Bacon and his son see the ghost of a teenage girl murdered in their house. He was already married and no scene in this movie took place in a lighthouse). So another answer to this question will be appreciated.SAZOO1975

Question: There's some movie (or it could be a TV episode, but I really can't remember) where two army recruits who aren't very good are dropped in the middle of the desert with a missile being sent at them. It is a test of a missile sent by the army they are training with. Somehow one or both of them manage to escape alive. Does anyone know what this scene is from?
Question: The main character is an elderly man who can't speak. He has some kind of device which makes it possible for him to speak and eat through his neck. He lives alone in what I remember as being a big old house. His wife is dead and he somehow keeps her body in her tomb in his house. The tomb is very beautiful. It's a very special tomb because it keeps her body fresh. It is build down in the floor and he can somehow open it and look at her. It sounds very freaky, weird and perverse but this is not the mood at all. You really feel sorry for this man. He still loves her very much and in a scene he watches a kind of slideshow with pictures of her. I think she was a horseback rider and this is the cause of her death but I'm not sure. A young woman visits him. I don't remember why or what their connection is but I think it is a friendly relationship. They have dinner together. In the end he lies down next to his dead wife and dies beside her. I don't know what year the movie was released but it was in color and was shown on Danish television some time between the years 1995-2000. I was very young at the time and didn't understand English very well so I don't remember any quotes, but I don't think there was a lot of talking. I really hope you can help me - thank you.
Question: I remember seeing a movie a long time ago about a woman who sleeps with a country singer at a concert and ends up pregnant with his baby. She chases him down to tell him and I vaguely remember a scene in a diner where the pregnant woman is eating a lot of food and the waitress says something about being careful to always feed a pregnant woman to the country singer guy who was across from the pregnant woman. I really want to know what movie this is from because I liked it a lot. Does anyone know?
Question: What is the name of a movie in which the plot is basically about a young girl who lives by a river. A boy her age is a little chubby but really likes her and tries to become friends with her, but she rejects him. He ends up drowning in the river toward the end. The girl also tries to go swimming in the same river afterwards during a storm and almost drowns. She then ends up seeing the boy's face in the moon or something along that line. I believe this movie is somewhere around the 80's or 90's?lehua1645
Question: I saw a movie in the late 1970's (prior to 1982 anyway) about two boys who were best friends. I think it was set in Africa, possibly South Africa, since the movie focused a lot on the difficulties of their inter-racial friendship. One memorable scene is the two of them rolling down a hill in large tires. I believe one of the boys ends up in an American city (New York?) looking for someone (his friend?), but he can't speak English, which is a problem until he encounters another person from his country. Any ideas? I can't place a date on it, except probably produced sometime between 1960 to 1980. I think it was in colour.
Question: So I've been trying to find this movie. It is a cartoon movie and I don't really remember much from it. I remember something about a girl getting lost and I remember a scene where she is at some ladies house and the lady was giving her milk and she noticed the girls face on the milk carton. It's not Face On A Milk Carton. Then I think her dad might have flown planes or something, I'm not really sure.
Question: Can you help with the name of this movie? I think a woman is being conned by someone who has given her a photo of his supposed family and while she is browsing in a store she sees lots of photo frames and the default photo is the same as the one she has been given.
