Question: There was a movie about a black man who was accused of murder. He gets two separate trials but both of his trials end with him being found guilty because all jury members at both trials were all white. While in prison he refuses to wear striped prison clothes or have a prison number. The warden eventually gives him some white pajamas to wear with no prison number.
Question: There was a black-and-white comedy movie about a man and a woman who believe that they are brother and sister. One of the constant running gags in the movie is how the man discovers and constantly tries to tell people that there are 13 dead bodies in the cellar. The end of the movie has the woman trying to tell the man the same thing but he informs her that she isn't really his sister. They drive off together while a cop at the house shouts after them that he's a little teapot.
Question: Saw this movie about 15yrs ago. It's about a woman whose husband and two daughters were killed at a stoplight. She is looking for the killer and the cop that's helping her end up falling in love with her. I don't believe they ever find out who killed her family. May have been a Lifetime movie.Breemommy30
Question: I am looking for this movie I believe had to be between 1996 and 2004, the guy who was in it looked like one of the Baldwin brothers. The ending displayed this man in court getting his verdict of "not guilty" while the scene simultaneously played the murder, where he came from behind the door of a woman's bedroom home and I believe grabbed her mouth and suffocated her.Lay-Lay Bae
Question: I'm looking for a movie that I used to watch when I was a kid, probably mid 1990's. I believe it's about two girls who are best friends - they both go to this cave near the ocean and one of the girls gets her foot caught under a big rock and can't move. The tide is coming in so the girl almost drowns, but the girl's best friend comes and brings help.
Question: A movie I saw mid-'90s, about a psycho stalker who chases this girl and her parents try to protect her in vain. One scene that sticks out is - she ends up in a hospital and he gets in, kidnaps her, drags her with her hospital bed across the parking lot until the police finally shoots him down...anyone remembers the title? Could be a TV movie.
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie about a divorced father with a teenage daughter who live in a apartment, and the father has a female neighbor he doesn't get along with at all. They often had arguments, and she wants him to move out of the apartment. One day the father got an invitation from his ex wife to attend her wedding - she was getting remarried and asked if he would bring someone with him or not, he then said that he would bring someone just to let his ex wife think he moved on. He spent days calling women to see if he could get a date to go to the wedding with, just to impress his ex wife, but all the women he called rejected him, leaving him the final choice to ask his female neighbor. At first she didn't want to, but later she told him she would do it if he agreed to the terms to move out of the apartment. He agreed and she even had him sign a agreement contract...and I don't know the rest! Please answer if you know, thank you.
Question: I'm trying to find the name of a short film I watched long ago. It starts off at a swimming centre where a woman (in her 40s maybe) is swimming and then goes to take a shower, where two girls take her clothes. The woman is then seen riding home on her bicycle wearing the shower curtain, where a bunch of young guys on their bikes begin chasing her. She gets derailed... And so on and one of the guys crashes into her, he gives her his red hoodie. The film ends with her at home wearing his hoodie... I've searched all over to try and find it and no luck, I hope someone knows what I'm talking about!
Question: There was a TV movie about a man who was accused of raping a blind woman. He insists he's innocent but the woman claims that she could identify him by a scar on his face. The man goes to prison, and while he's there he makes friends with another prisoner who tells him that one prisoner keeps boasting about how he raped a blind woman and someone else took the fall for it. Ironically, the prisoner has the same scar as the innocent man. The woman, now a lawyer, receives a letter from the man informing her of some new evidence, and when a DNA test is done, the man is finally freed from prison. The woman then goes to the man to make amends for sending him to prison.
Question: I am racking my brain to work out what movie I am thinking of. I think it is some kind of rom-com, I remember there is a "friendly" baseball game maybe right after a break up or fight at some point in the movie and also (at around the same time) the female lead is riding a bike through a park with a female friend at another part. I know it's really not much to go on, but it's all I can remember.
Question: I need help with the name of a movie I saw in the 80's, it might be older. It was about a group of people who were lost and ended up in a crazy family's house looking for help. The family was old and their kids were old also, but they still thought they were young, and the daughter had a doll in a bassinet that they believed was alive. The group of lost teenagers spent the night at their house and the family began to try and kill them.
Question: Does anyone know the title of this movie? When I was a kid, I watched the movie and in one scene, a man said to the other man something like "Your second toe is longer than your first one. So, you must be an intelligent one." I can't give you more details because that's all I can remember.monu
Question: I recall a few scenes from a movie or TV special about a young adult (maybe teen, but I think she was a young adult) who goes into therapy and ends up "uncovering" repressed memories of her father molesting her. If I remember correctly the abuse was said to have started/occurred in infancy. The veracity of the story is questioned and the therapist seems to herself have an overly close relationship to the girl. They choose to prosecute the father and it rips the family apart. I remember one of the final scenes where the girl's family is standing on one side and therapist on the other and the girl walks out with her therapist. The movie addresses issues about statute of limitations and the veracity if repressed memory. That's all I can remember.Kali
Question: I'm trying to find a movie and I cannot think of the name - I know it starts with a guy out running. When he gets home he finds his wife/girlfriend dead in the tub. He rents a room he shares with a woman. He locks her in her room and she poisons him with bacteria she was growing in a petri dish.sccwalker
Question: I can't remember the name of this movie. I only remember the very end. I believe this family was trying to escape from this town in their car at night. Then a strange animal or creature runs into their car. It looked like it ran into their car on purpose to prevent them from leaving town. The strange animal was never shown. The next day, the family was back at their home like nothing ever happened. A boy was playing basketball while the other family members were doing chores. It was like they were in a trance.Bkmm
