i'm looking for a movie, i dont know what its called but if i can remember its a 80's romantic comedy. Its about 2 teenage boys in high school. One of them has a crush on one of their teachers. So they build an time aging machine to make them older. The one that has a crush uses it to make him older. It works. He gets a job at the school and becomes closer with the teacher. Eventually the school and the teacher get suspicious of him and the police are called. He runs home to use the machine to go back to when he was a kid. The teacher looks in through the window and see's him. When he goes to school the next day, she has used it to make herself young so they can be together, and his friend has used it to become the teacher.

I'm trying to remember the name of a movie -- it would be considered a comedy. At the end, the "crooks" (who you come to root for) are escaping in an airplane out of a field. Can you help?

The older sister moves back to the east coast to liver with her sister, mother, and stepfather. And go to the same high school as her younger sister. It was a young adult fiction book.

Annie2308

I only have a vague recollection of this film's plot but it has a woman in her attic with her child/children looking at old photos and reminiscing about her high school days and choosing between her boyfriend and the teacher she has a crush on. We don't know which one became her childrens father until the end when we discover she ended up the teacher. It is a black and white movie perhaps from the 50s? Any help would be great.

Ashley

I'm looking for a movie that I saw long ago. I cannot remember the title nor the actors in it. All I remember is that in the movie the grandfather has had a stroke and can't talk and the grandson ends up in a brothel and at the very end the grandfather is sitting on the front porch with his "girlfriend" and he is finally able to talk again. If you have any idea what movie this is or might be, please advise. Thank you.

mariadelcanto

I am looking for an old movie I saw long, long time ago. I do not know the title or the actors' names. I only have some images in my mind. the plot is something like a young guy who is going to die of an unknown disease. The press publish his sad story and people start sending money for him to travel around Amrica. He goes to several cities and he is a hero. People welcomes him in every city with flags and music. When the date for his death arrives, the diagnose was wrong and he doesn't die. Everybody is angry to him and thinks he has cheated America with a sad story.
If you happen to know the title or the name of the actors, it should be of great help to me. Thank you for your help.

phil

I'm looking for a movie where the hero is a rally driver who is in love with his girlfriend, who is assumed dead in a car rally crash, but is actually pushed into the future. He then finds himself in a neighborhood in the night. he takes a taxi where the driver asks for his sports watch claiming it to be an antique. He goes to an old friends place who is now an old man and finds his way to his girlfriend who is still unmarried but she is a top beurocrat or something in a future government.

Maureen

I am trying to remember a book I read that has to be 10 or 15 years old (at least). The details are fuzzy to me now but I remember that it involves a group of teens that get stranded in an evil carnival/boardwalk. They're there because one of the girls was in a relationship with the "evil" guy who is described as gorgeous(so I think he made them come there or something). I want to say his name is Seth or something but I might be wrong. As they search for him, some of their members disappear in various ways and on rides and such. Some disappear on a love boat ride. Another one in a cave. And one of the characters is turned into one of those wooden wizard games. I also remember that the main girl confronts the evil boyfriend in a cave. Any help would be greatly appreciated since it's driving me crazy. Oh, and it's definitely not R.L. Stine. It was a lot more mature and dark.

nicky

I am looking for this movie i saw on tv one night. It was like 2:00 in the morning and it was on some station like AE or something but i only saw part of it. From what i could gather it was about a boy (16-18 years old) who found a girl (around his same age). she either ran from a mental institution or from her parents when she found out that they were going to send her to one or she just ran away from home. People thought that she was crazy, but she realy was not. And the boy must take care of her in his room or dorm with some of his friends. he's in an all boy's school or something (or maybe an all boys mental institution). I remember one scene where they go to a fair and hangout. I think that there was something about her feeling guilty about a boy she was with because he drove the car they were in off a bridge and she got out but she felt bad because she did not try to help him and he died. I also remember at the end the her parents found her. and the boy and girl and all their parents met at a hospital or the institution. and the parents try to take her away and his parents try to take him back to were he came from, but they (the boy and girl) look at eachother and jump into the elevator at the same time and escape from the parents. the movie ends showing their car driving away from the place. If you know or have ANY ideas of what i'm looking for i will be forever greatful to you if you tell me. Thank you for reading. Please tell me if you have ANY ideas weither it's the title or an actors name, or even more about the story. Thanks, Nicky

nicky

I might be able to help you if you could provide any more info on the movie. I have seen LOTS of comedy crime movies. Post a comment if you have any more info.

nicky

Hey Bobbie,

i migh be able to help you if you could provied any more info. Or even an actors name. Nicky

Ginger Lee Frank

Okay. I think this was a historical period film, probably by an Eastern European director. All I remember is one of the characters, who may have been kidnapped and imprisoned in a castle, amuses him self with a peculiar form of abusing himself: he constructs a small puppet stage which he places atop himself while lying down and costumes his erection, inserted into the stage setting, as the main actor in various self directed plays. Has any one got a clue what this disturbing bundle of celluloid could have been? P.S. It's not animation (so not Svankmajer).

caitlin

Just me

i am trying to find a certain movie. I dont know the name or any of the actors. It takes place in a university where there is a boy that loves his best friend but she is flirting with another guy. One night he finds the girl kissing a guy in a party and he jumps from a cliff. He goes to a forest and he meets a group of boys that study in the same university and they tell him that he has to change the color of a white rose to red in order to join the group. The father of the boy told him how to do this and he was trying to change the color of the rose in the river [ i am not sure but i think its by some kind of crystals] . He is found dead in the river with burns on his body by those crystals and the police is trying to find out what happened.
I remember one scene that some boys in the group drown a member of the group in the toilet because he told someone about the boy [that was challenged to turn the rose red ]
His best friend in certain scene cuts her hair short.

pleasseeee help!

Adam

Looking for a movie that was made somewhere between 1985-1995 i think. It was about a teenage girl who gets knocked up by some guy. It turns out the guy is a fly or some other form of insect and has the ability to take human form. Through the movie each set of parents human and insect try to tell the kids what to do. Thats pretty much all i remember from it. Some of this could be wrong, for i havent seen this movie in at least 10 years. Thanks

Jess

I'm looking for a movie where a psychopath stalks his ex-wife in a skyscraper after snatching their daughter. he plays cat and mouse with the ex and tries to kill both her and their little girl at the end. I remember there being an incenerator in the building. It came out in like the late 80s early 90s time.

Ognjen Latinovic

Hi, I'm looking for a movie that I saw a long time ago. I don't know what it's called but it's American and the plot goes something like this: A father and his son are travelling around when their car breaks down near this small town. They decide to stay there until their car is fixed and later discover that people have this magic water which stops them from aging. They also find out that people are not allowed to live forever and are killed on their 100th birthday as a celebration of life. I think they were killed by other people throwing stones at them. I can't remember much of it but I would really like to see it again. If anybody knows what I'm talking about, please contact me.
