Don't know if this movie had Steve Martin in it, but, it was about a man who traveled to a city who I think was going to con its citizens out of their money. Eventually, he changes his mind and decides to collect money for a good cause. While doing this, the people of the community he's in find out what he really does and has him put in jail. The end of the movie shows that the money he collected he used to create a Little League baseball field for the kids to play at.
I have a question about a movie that I've seen and forgot the name of it. It's about a girl who becomes friends with the neighbors' daughter but then wants to be her, so she kills her parents by setting their bedroom on fire. Turns out she's adopted and is actually their daughter but she's crazy. The mom ends up killing her. Not sure if it's a lifetime movie or made for TV movie. It was a thriller and I know she kills her parents by using gasoline and a cigarette just to move into the neighbors' to try and become the lady's daughter.Cassie Moonan
I saw a movie, probably in the 80s, that I thought starred Christopher Reeve and Sissy Spacek. He returned from the civil war as her husband, but it was questionable whether it really was - his shoe size was different, etc. In the end he was hanged. Can't find a movie with both Reeve and Spacek so maybe it was somebody else, esp. In the female role. Any ideas what movie this might be?
Need help knowing the name of a book. According to the plot summary on the back, there is a kid from the very distant future with the last name of Pineapplefour. In his timeline, time travel is possible and his classmates can use a time machine to travel into the past. However, they remain invisible when in the past and must obey one simple rule. While in the past, they are not permitted to touch anything out of fear that it could seriously alter the future. Instead of being sent to some historical era like Ancient Rome, he ends up in a girls bathroom of a high school in the eighties and can even be seen. Now his people from the future have to find a way to return him home or risk possible destruction of the future.
A few years ago I watched a made for TV movie about a college aged boy who finds his birth mother's family and terrorizes them. The daughter of the family had long dark hair, the family did not know the mother had a son.
Made for TV movie I believe, the main character is a college age boy who happens upon a family (Father, mother, teen daughter) but the mother is actually his who gave him up for adoption years earlier. The boy goes crazy and kills the dad in the end the sister has him caught. Seems like it would be early 2000's.
There was a movie with Dabney Coleman. In this movie, he plays a man who had no knowledge that he was switched at birth. Because of this, he grows up and becomes a cop who is told one day, that he's only got 48 hours to live so he tries getting himself killed to make it quicker.
There was a movie about a woman who was caught cheating on her fiancé. In one scene in the movie, she is waiting for an elevator. While waiting for it, she notices a guy walking past her and when the elevator doors open, she doesn't realize that the elevator is not on her floor and when she walks forward, she falls to the ground floor. The woman suffers from a head injury and after this, she begins seducing men and sexually assaults a woman, but is eventually caught by two coworkers and her fiancé with a new boss.
There was a movie starring John Cusack. In the movie, John is driving home when a black bag from an armored truck falls into the backseat of his car. When he gets home and opens it, he discovers that there is a lot of money in it. Later in the movie, he is reading a newspaper and is shocked to discover the front page news is about how the money was stolen from the armored truck.
There was a game for the video game console, Sega Saturn. It takes place in a mansion located in the afterlife. All of the inhabitants are dead and they take the forms of butterflies. The player, along with one of the inhabitants, is looking into mysterious things that are occurring such as one inhabitant being destroyed which leads them to discover that one of the other inhabitants is working with an evil entity. One of the items that the player is given is a deck of tarot cards that represents each of the other inhabitants.
