2) A time period movie - a comedy I believe - set in the 20's or the 40's or something. There is a cute blonde woman eating chocolates in a hotel room. The man she is seeing does something to make her angry and she shoots at him with a crossbow. I think there is also another scene where she pouts and flashes her underwear from a fur coat while standing at the back of a train as it is pulling out of the station.

Here's one for the books as they say... A young Robert Wagner has been invited by his rich girlfriends daddy to accompany them on a cruise. Daddy makes it a point of embarassing the young man at every opportunity to diminish him to his daughter. The young man starts a diary of interesting and strange events and people encountered during the voyage. They all part company however daddy has not missed the fact that the kid knows too much and things go wild from there, does anyone have a clue??

Here is every movie Robert Wagner has made. It should be one of these:

I'm trying to find a kids movie from the 1980s, about a group of kids (there was at least one tomboyish girl) that had a secret underground clubhouse. (I believe they entered it through a sewer). They either skaboarded,skated or rode bikes, (I was really young, I can't remember). I think they had a battle with other kids and they needed to fight, so they enlisted the help of an old man to train them. Then they had to go somewhere at night, and they're camouflaged. This is driving me crazy, I've spent so many hours searching for it. Google is not helping! Please help!

Help! No one I know can tell me the name of this movie.
There is a little league player who visits a nuclear silo on a school trip. He then decides not to play little league anymore and gets professional athletes to join him in not playing sports until the world leaders can get rid of nuclear weapons. They all hang out at the kids house. At the end, the basketball player is killed in a plane explosion.
Anyone?

It is probably an american TV movie
Anyone got any ideas?

Sounds like a scene from Final Destination 2. It wasn't an 80s flick though.

He digs something (like a screwdriver) out of ashes in the bottom of a furnace or oven or maybe it was just some dirt. I think he puts on a dark olive green jacket and walks outside at night where there is a chain link fence and asphalt. I want to say the title is "return to hell" "return from ..." or "escape" but I really have no idea. I thought the guy might be working in a kitchen. I also think he leaves through steel framed glass doors at one point, in a disguise including his dark jacket.


Long shot: was it "Band of the Hand"

Hiya folks,

I've got a doozie for you. I don't know the plot of the movie I'm looking for, and I don't know who is in it. I was just told that one of the supporting actors in it was a young Doug Jones sans prosthetics, and that he had this aweful line: "I'd like to tickle her tonsils with my meat puppet."

Boyfriend says he's heard the line SOMEWHERE, so I'm trying to find the movie it was in.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I wasn't alive in the 80's, but my sister was, and she has this movie she obsessively searches for.
All she knows about it is that some girl goes underground and there are these wierd puppet things called ugugs. Does anyone recognize this, and can someone give me its title?

I'd love to see it again!! Cheers!
