Q: I can't remember many details of this movie but what I do remember is: There is a kid that is super smart, genius even, and he basically steals some hi-tech jet(SR-71 Blackbird I think) and flies it to meet his friend. Along the something happens with the controls and he sticks his chewing gum on the panel to fix it.

Surely that's it. D.A.R.Y.L. rocks. I used to love that movie. I will have to check it out again soon.

On another note, in the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops you can call in a Blackbird and when you do a voice says, "Your SR-71 is online."

Hello there!

I am in search of an 80's movie and don't know where else to go to find it.

The film was sci-fi, young boy in the central role (like boy from D.A.R.Y.L), this boy gains a black, out of this world, remote control (thick triangle shape I think) which is his source of power for the movie... he moves a space ship in the end with it. It's along the lines of D.A.R.Y.L and flight of the navigator I think.

Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance!

Mickey

Does anyone know the title of this movie?

I remember, a woman being coerced to go on vacation (she didnt want to go, didnt want to leave her son who was about 5-10 yrs old, I think) by another woman, maybe her friend or sister. She ended up going on the vacation alone. When she got to the place, a resort of some kind, it was being run by her ex (not sure if it was husband or just lover) but he was the son's father and he didnt know about the son. He could have also owned the island/resort or whatever the vacation spot was. Other vacationers were also vacationing with smaller love stories thrown in. They ended up rekindling their love.

I remember she had to get there by boat and when she got there, as she got off the boat she spotted the ex and so she tried to get back on the boat to leave but the boat driver wouldnt let her, so she hid from him, managed to get to her room, and was planning to hide out in there, but she eventually had to go out for food...

I also remember a dance scene where two other vacationers were dancing and the girl was taller than the guy and the guy laid his head on her shoulders (the reverse of "normal" movie scenes).

....sounds really girlie and soap opera like but it was a movie...any clues...anybody?
I really need to find this movie...Im going crazy with the search for it.

The movie or movies I seek are as follows:

One movie involves young ten men obsessed with sex. I can only recall one scene because its been stuck in my mind for over 20 years. The scene is about one of the guys is shrunk and ends up in a females underwear. By him scratching his way out makes the female go crazy while in class. Not sure if that rings any bells with anyone.

The other movie is about some young teens that have a hand held device that turns on women when the switch is turned on.

Please help me name these flicks.

Walt,
your first description is about the movie Getting Lucky (1990).. absolutely no doubt about
that !
It is available on dvd from Troma entertainment with a director's commentary.

Johnny Roarke is reckless - Thank you so so much mate! You have no idea how relieved my mind is, much appreciated.

The second movie I was seeking is about some young men that find or make a remote device that controls women's sexual appetite. The device, when turned to 10( or high) makes the women it was pointed at go absolutely crazy with desire.

I seen this movie many years ago and saw it on TV once since then. Please assist me if you can...

Sounds like 'Sheriff and the Satellite Kid' or its sequel 'Why Did You Pick on Me?'

I am trying to find the name of an 80's movie ( I believe) What I remember about the movie is two teenage girls one pretty (the bad one) the other not so pretty and not so bad. They become friends and the pretty one has a brother that the other girl likes. I remember they steal "fire engine red" nailpolish. I also remember a scene where the girl gets on the handle bars of the brothers bike and he goes very fast scaring her. I have been trying to find the naame of this movie forever and hope someone else knows it.

The name of a movie. The title might even be obvious to me but perhaps I am just having a brain failure:

I believe there are some people doing a course to get their driver's licence. It may have even been a movie based solely on getting their licence.

But someone says in the movie, like an instructor:

"What is the first thing you should do upon entering a vehicle."

and one of the guys says"

"Hotwire it."

Like I said, it might be an obvious one and perhaps even a movie I am familiar with but having a major brain freeze.

For some reason I have the feeling it is a movie similar to the likes of Moving Violations.

Well, it's certainly not a movie that I have seen for a long time but that is certainly it.

Thanks heaps, once again.

I dunno how you got that one so quick.

I hope someone can help me w/ this, has been driving me nuts for years!...I cant remember the name of this movie but remember watching it when I was little (80s)..What I remember is a boy and a girl and possibly a midget? Or maybe a hobo, cant remember but it involved magic or a fantasy world, something like that..I remember one scene where I think theyre looking for their mom and theyre riding in a gondola and its foggy and magical looking and I think they see their mom up on a rope, like in cirque de solei where they are dangling from the rope and do tricks or whatnot...I know its not much to go by I remember really liking it as a kid and I cannot find out what it was called anywhere!!

Hello all,

I am trying to find a movie, pretty sure it's an 80's movie. It was what I would call a comedy horror.

What I remember is this teenage guy's parent's were hosting a Halloween party, the guy actually falls for this new girl in town, she is actually a dead cheerleader that came back to life. Anyway, she eventually tells him this, and says that sometimes the dead come back to life just to have fun. Several of the undead actually go to his parents party, since it's a costume party most of them blend right in. It seems to be more comedic mischief then anything else. Some of the undead do come back to cause havoc though.

I wish I could remember more. =( Any help would be greatly appreciated. =)

Wow, THANK YOU! I have been trying to find this movie forever, never could remember the name or even find any info on the web. I tried searching by plot, the few lines from the movie I remembered...nada.

I really appreciate it! =)
