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
Trying to remember a movie I saw when I was a teenager on IFC. The movie was in Italian or another European language, set in the future, about a boy who can't go outside or he dies. I only watched the end. In the movie he's always stuck indoors so he talks to call girls on some webcam. The thing though is that you don't see the main character's face. It just shows the people he's talking to. When talking on the webcam he falls in love with a call girl. And vice versa, then he breaks it to her that he can't go outside. Then she shuns him, he ties to get in contact with her again but he can't reach her. So feeling heart broken he gets frustrated with his disease. The last part was sad because he calls his mom and asks her how's the weather outside that's when his mother knows he's going to go outside meaning certain death, she just tells him to put on a coat, it's chilly outside. The last part just shows the security camera of the boy about the go outside. Just about when he's going outside the movie ends.
I want to know the name of the movie in which there is a family trapped with black magic or something, they had been transferred to another dimension, found themselves standing on an old rock wall and had to play games or answer questions, and every time they passed, they moved along and climbed up high. I remember there was a woodcraft or voodoo doll for each member of this family.midsummer
I'm looking for the name of a movie my husband watched in the 80's. It's black and white, he said it came on one night after Car 54 on Nick at Night. He only remembers the ending as a cop was in a car, and it goes into the water. It's not very much info but if anyone has a clue as to what it is I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
I was very young when I saw this movie and only remember flashes. There is a scene I remember where a beautiful man is looking around a corner of a very old fashioned home, the walls were grey. There is also a beautiful young girl whom I think he is in love with. There's another man (I don't really remember) her boyfriend or perhaps her brother. And the young beautiful man is an angel, and in the end I think he is killed. I just remember all of the towns people gathering and lighting candles (by a river I think). The beautiful boy also had shoulder length blonde hair. And the girl's hair I think was brown. It could have been blonde. I'm not sure. But I know I loved this movie a lot and would really like to know what it is called. Thank you.
In movies where a giant being is attacking smaller beings, why is it that the giants always seem to be moving so slowly? Happens in video games often as well.Quantom X
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
I'm looking for a film from the 50s or early 60s, Hollywood - a mother, father and daughter go on a cruise, the daughter has an affair and ends up pregnant. The family all go to live in South America during the pregnancy and then the mother claims the baby as her own (i.e., the real mother pretends she is the sister).
I am looking for a film from possibly the late 80s, that somehow involves rich kids and horses and high school kids trying to sneak into college dorms. The film wraps up with a young couple who have been trying to be intimate with each other getting a fancy hotel room and trying to make the moment perfect, but consequently the girl gets food poisoning or the flu which botches their big plans. Right before the credits roll she finds him sulking on the shoreline outside the hotel and they sleep together there. Does this ring any bells?
A few years back me and my dad were in a motel flipping through the channels. We came across a movie staring Bruce Willis. For whatever reason, we didn't watch much of it and went to something else, but it has always stuck out in my mind and I'd like to find it. The scene shown had Bruce Willis and Jack Black in it. To sight his gun, Bruce had Jack hold out a cigarette pack so he could shoot it. He shot off Jack Black's arm, and then killed him. What movie is this?Quantom X
I'm trying to find a film I saw years ago, maybe late 90's early 2000's but can't be sure. It's a British film of a brother and sister who live with their father in the countryside, The father has become/is angry and abusive. The brother has developed feelings for his sister and attacks and kills the father when he tries to rape the sister. The only scene I remember is at the end, when the brother and sister are hiding and begin to kiss. I remember it pulling no punches.
I'm looking for the name of a movie that I saw on HBO in the late 80s or early 90s. It was a western movie with a teenage or young adult girl who runs away with a group of men on horseback for adventure. I want to say the name of her horse was something like Honeybelle and the title of the movie may have been "The Adventures of..." Any suggestions?
Hi, I watched a movie in the 90's (I think) which had young characters seeking to adopt a child, but the investigator came at the same time as either a drug deal gone bad or maybe a home invasion. This was a dark-ish comedy with the young male character moving and hiding a body and other things happening along the same lines, and at the end they decide to forget it or just go on vacation or move. I'm not really doing justice to the movie as it was pretty good. So if anyone could help me with this vague question it would be appreciated. My last question here was answered spot on, so you guys are good at helping out, and thanks for that help.barsoon
What is the movie where there was a kid having a birthday party and they live in the middle of nowhere, but these bad guys come and take them hostage and one of the boys saves the day? Unfortunately those are all the details I can remember. It is from around the late 80's or sometime in the 90's.Jennduhon
