Question: Trying to think of the name of a movie that came out within the past 3-5 years if I remember correctly. I thought it was Fred Claus at first, but I fast forwarded through the whole movie the other day and it wasn't it. All I remember is the end, where the main character was supposed to go to jail or something, but there was a group of kids at a orphanage that stuck up for him and helped him from going. I remember him confronting them all in a room and where there was both girls and boys. He asked them why they helped him after lying to them and doing what he did.that is all I remember. It's like a combination of Fred Claus and Role Models if that helps. I remember one of the girl actresses has been in a lot of things and has curly brunette hair.theyekid
Question: In this movie that I saw in the mid 80s, all I remember is that it had children outwitting kidnappers. The kidnappers have one child's father. There is a fat kidnapper that chases the kids into a cave and when the kids go through a hole that kidnapper tries to go through it and gets stuck.mrlime
Question: I saw a movie when I was a kid in the early 80's, but I only remember a few parts, and I think it's a scary movie. Kids are in a school coatroom, when the school is closed. I also remember an angel or something at the end in a red dress, and there is a house on a beach side cliff that is lit on fire at the end. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie I saw on the Lifetime channel within the last five years (but I'm not sure if it was made that recently). A dark-haired girl begins dating a boy, he gets her pregnant and takes her to some ranch/farm where the owners are planning to keep the baby. The place also has other pregnant girls. I think her name might have been Wendy, but I'm not sure. At one point, her mom visits the place and tries to convince her to come home. Her mom confesses that she once had a baby boy as a teenager and gave him up for adoption.
Question: I remember an episode of Looney Tunes or Merry Melodies which I can't remember its name; throughout the entire episode, a wolf is following Little Red Riding Hood to her grandma's house and keeps seeing this little fellow with a funny walk and a big nose (I think it's egghead but I'm not sure) who passes through the scene and whistles a tune. At the end, after reaching grandma's house, he sees the whistling guy once again and asks who he is. The guy knocks him out with a large hammer and says: "I'm a hunter". Can someone please tell me the name of that episode?
Question: I'm looking for a movie that I saw years ago but can't remember the name. A couple hires a babysitter who tells the two children (a boy and girl) about a secret island. I think she may have had an affair with the husband. In the end of the movie she tries to kidnap the children on a raft telling them she is taking them to the island, she throws one of them out of the raft. In one of the end scenes the mother of the children slaps the babysitter on the beach.
Question: Trying to remember the title of a movie. Its animated, intelligent and most likely in the Drama-genre. Its got like 4 or 5 main characters. And a key sentence that gets brought up is "Less Theory, More Action" . Also, one of the scenes is them trying to explain dreams, and goes like "To figure out if you're awake or its a dream, try turning off the light switch in a room, the lights don't change by a switch in a dream." Time range of production, 2002-2008 maybe? Anyone seen it? Know the title?
Question: Hi, I'm looking for a tv commercial that aired in the 1980's. (Browsing your site it looks like you do commercials as well as movies and tv.) Anyway, it was a pizza delivery commercial (possibly Domino's) that took place in a haunted house. The only scenes I remember are the pizza delivery boy crossing a pit of snakes and having to choose one of three doors. As I recall, the commercial ended with the delivery boy still stuck in the haunted house. Do you have any information on this? What I mostly remember is being so scared as a child that I had to leave the room whenever the commercial aired.
Question: I remember watching a film in which a girl, another girl, and the father of one of them get into a car accident. One girl survives and she has to have her face reconstructed. The doctors end up making her look like the other girl that was in the car. I've searched Google and IMDB with no luck.aml2546
Question: About 23 years ago, I remember seeing a movie in the theater. It was a horror movie. I can remember certain events happening in the movie. A head gets blown up in a microwave, a circular saw flies through the air and kills somebody. I think all of these things take place in an old house. I vaguely remember an old pier leading out to a pond that somebody may have been killed on. I thought at first the name of the movie was something like "Superstition", but I have searched and searched and cannot find anything on this movie. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Question: I wanted to know the title of a movie. I am not sure when it was produced but I watched it a lot back in the mid - late '80s. The only scene I can remember is one where a dwarf or smaller individual finds a ring with a green stone in the mouth of a gargoyle and goes running because the queen would be so happy that he found the ring. It is not animated. I have been trying to figure this out for years.henrik1227
Question: I saw this movie many years ago, it looked to be late 80's early 90's. It was about a guy who saved a girl in a robbery and just before he died he asked her out. Later he comes back from the dead, but is decomposing. At the end he goes back in time to the point of the robbery and gets shot again but this time there is a locket that blocks the bullet that the girl gave him in the future.Aven
Question: Would like to know the title of a movie, probably from the 70s or early 80s, in which a car crashes into a tanker truck and becomes covered in a molten cheese-like substance. There may also have been a scene with a room full of balloons. This question was already asked and answered, but it is not Modern Problems (1981) as was suggested. Thanks for the help.
Question: I'm also looking for the title to an old science fiction movie I saw on TV a long time ago, possibly 1970's to early 1990's era. It took place in a post-apocalyptic world and features desert landscapes with sparsely-distributed debris of what was, back then, modern technology. It started with a wanderer staying at a friend's place before it is attacked. He has a sword and can fight, but, when taken in by a family, that family hides his sword from him. To protect this family from bandits, the wanderer duels the bandit leader with staffs. At the end, the men who killed his friend show up, and he is given his sword back to fight them with.
Question: Hello. I'm looking for the title of a children's animated movie, probably 80's-90's, that features a villain with a glass eye and a black bird that constantly calls out: nevermore. At the end, a flock of these black birds covers the villain, and, when they disperse, all that's left is the villain's glass eye, suspended in midair, which then drops to the ground.
Question: Looking for a TV movie title and the lead actor's name; I believe he played a teacher whose female student became very attracted to him. The student showed up at a yard sale (or car wash, or some kind of fund raiser) in shorts and tried to seduce him. In the end, she murdered one of her own friends and made it look like she herself was dead, then went to the teacher's house and attacked his girlfriend. Who is the actor? He appeared tall, was handsome, dirty blonde or brown hair, and has been in a few television movies.
