Hello everyone,

I am trying to find a movie from the 80th. It is a youth comedy about a boy who falls in love with a girl and stays in the front garden of her house for days just to make Her fall in love with him too. He eats there, sleep there and everything. After many days, He just leave but the girl discovered that in all that time She was indeed in love with him and go to his house and does exactly the same thing he did just to be with him.

I hope you can help me find the title of this movie.

Thank you,

Daniel

Sounds a bit like 'Eight Days a Week':

I asked about this movie a long time ago and never found it. It is a teen dance romance movie 70s or 80s was on cable in 89 or 90 it was like girls just want to have fun and dirty dancing rolled into one. A girl ends up dancing with the "bad boy's" crew in a comp against her older brother. It's bugged me for years.

Not sure if I'm posting this inquiry in the right place but worth a shot. I'm searching for the name of a movie that was featured on HBO in the mid 80s. It was set in white suburbia, coming of age teen drama about 3 kids. One girl was the 'dork' with a short blonde bob and a big smile and then there was the 'pretty' dark haired, timid girl. There was a dark haired dorky boy that runs away from home and winds up camping out in a yellow tent on the porch of one of the girl's house. The blonde girl finally get a kiss at the end. I know its vague any ideas?

Hi LiRR, could you be thinking of the old 1976 T.V. series Gemini Man?

Takes place at a beach or big lake with a bunch of teens. There is this young guy that works at a boat shop where he fills the boats with gas and one part he is filling one up, a girl passes by, checks her out and he overfills the gas tank. there is also a gang of biker looking guys but on boats and jet ski. Also some girl that is in a house that guys keep getting thrown out a window by this big biker guy and fall in the water. well the young guy ends up going in her room, somehow the big biker guy gets knocked out and the young guy shows off in the window so everyone can see that he made it. at the end the biker guy was the brother of the girl.

This movie was mentioned already a couple pages back, but once again...You are looking for the movie Meatballs III starring a very young Patrick Dempsey Brand7734.

Lostintheflood,

i got a question for you.

If you don't know the title of the movie, then how did you find that pic ? And how do you know
it's from the 70s or 80s ?
I mean, any kind of hint about how you found that pic might help us to come up with the title.

Thus far i can see something that has been filmed in cinescope, is most likely set in
the fifties or early sixties, and has a sun-drenched look to it.

When that pic popped up on my screen, the first thing i thought about was The Hot Spot..
but that can't be it. It does seem to have the same atmosphere though.

Johnny, it's from the website Tumblr. It has been "reblogged" several times, however, the original poster does not specify the movie it is from. After all, I suppose it could also be a TV show, however, I stumbled across this site and just figured I'd inquire.

I don't know that it's from the 70s or 80s ... I had said "not sure if 70s or 80s" in my original post ... Again, just figured this is a good spot to ask.

Thanks for the reply though!

To anyone interested, I've come to realize it's from Tom Ford's "A Single Man" (2009) set in 1962 ...

Hi, I am new to this so I'd appreciate your help, I am looking for what I think is an 80's film but could be early 90's. Its about a girl, who gets taken in by a lady who has a cafe, she helps out as a waitress and lives with the woman, I seem to recall, the girl stealing some food, but I can't remember why, (I think to give to a waif?), I had this film on video, but chucked it and the name of it just eludes me although I watched it often! I think it was something like, The something cafe, just need the something - your help would be much appreciated - thank you x

Can someone Plz help me with this movie title. Do you remember an 80's comedy movie i saw on hbo where cocaine was smuggled Into a hotel kitchen and replaced the sugar in big jars and these cooks were making a cake and couldnt taste the sweetness of it thinking it was sugar and went stir crazy making it and everyone went bezerk after eating the cake. There was even a scene where there was a talent show and someone put a pile of cocaine in the AC vent and these girls were like 'do you smell that' and they were on stage playing slow music like earth angel or something, then went nuts and started playing metal and scared the hell out of everyone. Can someone Plz help me with this movie title.

Phrankieboi,

the movie you're looking for is Screwball Hotel (1988).

The funny thing is that the only legit dvd release of this one was released here in Holland.

There's also a user review on the Imdb that's really quite similar to yours, from someone who
also remembers it from the early days of HBO.

Hi, I am trying to find out the name of a 80s sci fi film. The good guys had jetpacks and brown suits of some sort and wore helmets that were shaped like crocodile or alligator heads. I think the bad guys were all lizard like men. Not sure if the plot was taken place in the future or another planet.

Hi. I'd like to know the name of a movie in which there is this guy, with glasses and this girl called "Joyce", I think. They go to college, but it's a college with separate housing for boys and girls. And then, one day this guy takes Joyce out. And he borrows a friend's car and his friend tells him not to make a mess in the backseat - it was a black car. And then he brings Joyce home and they make love. It's a sad movie somehow, because I think one of this guy's friends dies.What's the name of this movie?

Ive just about given up figuring this one out. It was a horror movie I watched on tv at a friends house many years ago and the only thing we remember is a scene where a guy is running from a monster of some sort and ends up in a cemetary and is cornered against a headstone. The monster then lifts his arms high above his head in outward arches and pees on the guy.

I'd love to know what movie this was.

Could be Enemy Mine with Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett Jr. ?
