Thanks for the reply P_A_U_L, but it is not Enemy Mine. The lizard like bad guys look more like the green alien guy from Hunter Prey. The movie I am looking for was not as popular as Enemy Mine and I don't think there was any A-list actors.

Actually that description also sounds a bit like Nothing But Trouble (1991)...

Looking for a movie that I vaguely remember but the imagery was so vivid. Very colorful and the house was almost fake or imaginary in it...the woman in the one part I remember was upset about something maybe being dead and hides behind a door in a room of the house and tries to take pills or something ....the guy in it and her fight or don't get along ..it reminded me of a fantasy and I cannot remember the name..had to be late eighties, like 88 89 maybe a love story where a woman is dead?? or dreaming??

Looking for name of an 80's romantic comedy. It was set in LA. The guy is a rock musician, the woman comes from money. They rollerblade at Venice Beach on their first date only he doesn't really know how to. Think her family doesn't approve, causing romantic tension. Movie was often shown on cable channels like USA/TBS/TNT 20 years ago. Don't think any well known actors were in it.

In my film, the woman worked in an office, and was mugged. She started going to a self-defense class, and the instructor, a police man, got her into weighlifting. She started getting healthier, losing weight. She got fired from her job because she annoyed her boss by eating healthy crunchy snacks, like carrot sticks.

She starts dating the cop (near LA, I think), who is later embarrassed when she can lift more than him around his friends at an outside area like the weightlifting area at Venice Beach. He breaks up with her, she's distraught, the big dramatic scene is her struggling to not drown her sorrows in Hagen-Dasz, she over comes, and lives happily ever after.

The part of the movie i remember is right near the end i think....it's an early-mid 80's movie
i don't remember any "big" names in it, but then again, i was about 5-7 years old.
The main charachter is a typical 80's looking teenager, with darker mouse-y brown curly hair (not tight curls, but not loose waves either...typical 80's hair with the poof for bangs), and she's wearing a catholic school uniform (dark blue blazer with red/blue plaid skirt), is maybe getting kinda raped on the hood of a car, then gets away and is running away from the guy (or group of guys...it's night time)....
as she's running away, she jumps from what appears to be a field that is way up on a hill or cliff, jumps off the cliff to try and clear a fence at the bottom, but doesn't quite make it and is maybe impaled at gut level on the fence (I think it's a chain-link fence, but could be a white picket fence)?
That's all I remember, and I have a few friends who say it sounds familiar, but don't remember it either, and I have read thru all 27 pages....(took me 8 hours! lol) Please help! (sorry if I posted wrong)

It probably won't be the movie you're looking for.. but with a description like that, it's just
a matter of time before someone mentions Death Wish 2, since it has the most famous
"rapevictim-who-ends-up-on-the-sharp-end-of-a-fence" scene.

 -

The lovely Robin Sherwood plays the unfortunate girl here, and kinda does fit the description.

Hi. I'm looking for the title of an 80's movie that had a Mr. McCready in it. Seems like he might have been a camp counsellor or youth leader.

Thanks,
Dev

I only vaguely remember this movie from my youth, and the only part I remember is towards the end. I'm pretty sure it was a teen comedy, and the end involves a robot being dismantled because they wanted to put a school bus engine into a car for a race, and the robot’s outer shell could withstand the heat. And if memory serves me right, the robot was put back together after the race and pulls down the pants of the main “bad guy” at the very end. Any ideas???

I watched Blind Fury with Rutger Hauer the other day and there was a Mr. McCready in that but he was more of a crime boss than a youth leader.

OK, I dunno if this is it because it does not match your description exactly. This woman does get confronted by a guy dressed as Dracula at her car and runs away from him down a dark alley and ends up getting impaled on a white picket fence (in the neck). This has definitely got a chance of being it but just check this movie out and see if this might be it:

Fade to Black (1980)

Start the video at 47:40

I hope this is it cos if it is the full movie is on You Tube.

I'm trying to find a movie that I watched in the 90's (I was pretty young) but I'm pretty sure it's from the 70's or 80's.

All I can remember is stuff from the end. This woman (I think her hair was red) went kind of crazy because her daughter died. I think she accidentally fell down the stairs. The end of the movie shows the mother kept the daughter in a coffin in her basement or something, and she's all dusty and skeletal.

I think she may have been pretending someone else was her daughter. It may have taken place in an orphanage, or something similar. I also remember a check being written in british pounds, for a very large amount.

Anyone know what movie this was?
