What's That Movie?

Updated on June 6, 2016

"What's that movie with that guy that did that thing with that one girl? Oh, and it was set in high school back in the 80s?"

Have you ever asked someone a similar question? Well, I might need a little more information than the above to come up with the answer, but I am pretty good at identifying movies. Lord knows I've seen my share of them, and then some!

Test My Knowledge!

With a library of at least a thousand movies and an incessant urge to perpetually expand my collection to infinite proportions, I am a certified movie geek!

So be my guest: Utilize my useless knowledge and ask away. If I do not know the answer off the top of my head, I will do my best to find the it for you (or someone else might beat me to it by answering in the comments section ).

Just type your question in the comment box at the bottom of this page. Sorry if it takes awhile for me to answer. I am not on the Web 24/7. Your question could be answered in mere minutes, or it may take a few days. Bookmark this page and keeping checking back.

All in Good Fun

I know what you are thinking, "I'm on the Internet where all answers are just a click away, so why in the hell do I need to ask Imadork about a movie?!?!"

You probably don't need to ask me. I just thought this would be fun. Who knows? Maybe you are too lazy to search or don't know how to go about searching with the info you have. I don't care. I just enjoy movies and find pleasure in helping people rid themselves of that frustrating total lack of recall.

So go ahead, ask away!

Tips for Your Movie Search

If you decide to search online for your movie, IMDb.com is a great database to use. Tthere are lots of ways to search on this site: by title, actor, plot, or keywords. The latter two are the best, if you have that pesky unknown movie in your head. It may take some time and patience, but you will find the movie most of the time.

Also, click on your search engine's "Search Tools" or "Advanced Search" button. There you can use filters to narrow down your search.

Some Friendly Requests

  • Be nice!
  • Scroll through other people's questions. If you know the answer, post it. Just make sure you specify the name of the questioner to eliminate confusion.
  • If you post a question but then find the answer on your own later, please come back and tell me. That will save me from wasting time searching for your movie.
  • Finally, (I'm starting to develop a pet peeve about this one), when posting a question, if you know about how old the movie is, please add that bit of information. Telling me that it came out when you were young does not help when I don't know how old you are.

Note to Readers

Due to the increase in questions and my own personal problems of late, I have been unable to keep up. A huge thank you to all readers who picked up the slack and answered open questions! Most notably Patrol the Skies, who seems to be an even greater movie geek than yours truly! Although I'm not as active as I was in the past, I am still around, so keep posting your questions! If I don't get to it, chances are someone else will. Check back periodically to see if your question was answered.

      @bluebronx2000 ~ Great! I also am relieved, as I've never heard of this film. I figured that I'd kick myself (figuratively) and say, "Why didn't I think of that?!".

      Maybe it will show up on TCM someday, and I can add it to my memory bank. I've seen hundreds of musicals, but not that one.

      Thanks for coming back to let us (including me!) know! Good on you!

      @bluebronx2000 ~ You're welcome! I saw this film a couple of years ago and was delighted by it; I'd love to see it again. It's a perk that Rufus Sewell is in it!

      I wish that I knew your other movie. Nothing "clicks" with me unfortunately. I do love vintage musicals!

      @MystMoonstruck. Thank you!! I've been going up and down my movie history on Netflix trying to find it since I saw it years ago, but no luck!

      @vivian. Thanks Vivian, but that wasn't it. It was an American movie. The characters' and movie's style was reminiscent of Roger and Hammerstein's State Fair or of Hello Dolly. I don't remember there being any music though. I think I vaguely remember the three sisters, ages 16- 25-ish, having to be taught how to dress and act like ladies by a hired maid or governess of some kind. I guess it would be a drama/comedy... sort of like South Pacific.

      @apelhitam ~ The Outer Limits (TV anthology series), "Mary 25" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_25

      From Wikipedia: Mary 25 (Sofia Shinas) replaces the Bouton household's current nanny. She is designed not to allow anyone to harm the children, including the children themselves. When they start fighting amongst themselves, Mary places them in separate rooms. Teryl (Cynthia Geary), the mother and Charlie's wife, wants Mary out of the house, but Charlie says, "No"; it seems he has started using Mary as a sex toy when the others are asleep, something Teryl as become aware of. It becomes clear that Charlie has been abusing Teryl when the children ask Mary, "Why does Daddy hurt Mommy?"

      Hey, seen that movie on tv i rhink in the end of the ’90 or early ’00. Had about 3-5 episodes, about 90 min each. Thunk it was some kind of apocalypse but no sci fi. Something like the end of the world was coming, bunch of people traveling together, looking for something. One of them was a woman, she had visions of satan. Shes small, short, long dark hair. Think they were staying one step in front of satan who was following them, trying to take that lady to his side. Nor sure but the title was just one word. Thinking about it all the time and cant remember... Please help:)

      I remember watching this movie more than 8 years ago.

      this one scene i remember.

      a female brunette in a bathrobe walks into a bathroom.

      her face is expressionless, deadpan.

      she unties her bathrobe, and opens a hatch to her side.

      she then proceeds to insert a pipe to it.

      she is an android and she is refuelling/recharging herself.

      a man walks past the bathroom and sees the robot.

      he approaches her and begins to nuzzle her nape.

      thats as much as i remember. Anyone help me find the title of this movie?

      Also... a comedy from the 90's or 2000s, set in the 30's or so: a family is living on a farm and has a hired hand that keeps getting one of the daughters pregnant. Someone comes to the house and tells (one of the sons?) that he'd make a good actor, so the son leaves to find his fortune. Meanwhile there is a lot of fighting between the members of the family and the grandmother keeps cussing everybody out. Any clue? I remember one of the main characters being a Rufus Sewell lookalike, but...

      Aaand a campy comedy/sci-fi cultish movie from the early 2000s with a Nestor Carbonell type... set in the 50's suburbs and aliens are invading and taking over people's brains. Way too much color...

      Okay, this could be a little tricky: I'm looking for a cartoon movie about a guy in a world where you either belong to a species that is human alike but water is corrosive to them or to a species that can not handle heat at all. The second species turns into statues during the day so they do not have to face the heat from the desert they live in. To "activate" such a statue for them to come back to life, a certain, weird looking stone has to be put into a whole of that statue. One day, this guy who belongs to the "heat no water"-species does that and wakes up a girl and they end up falling in love which is very comlicated because they can not touch each other.

      As af as I remember, this movie seemed kind of old, maybe from the late 80s or 90s, but I am not too sure about that because the last time I watched is when I was about five years old. I hope you can help me!

      Trying to find the name of a classic (60's?) movie about three young women raised on an island by their father. They're eager to fall in love, but there are no other men on the island until some soldiers come. At some point in the movie, one of the girls' love interest leaves and she waits for him to come back. The final scene is them running to each other on the beach when he finally does.

      @jesse ~ I suggested "The Violent Men" because it's the only Western movie I've watched for quite a while. I thought that was the one where he does his horsebreaking and fist-fighting in private. His young, ambitious wife wants him to be a show-off type to impress everyone, including her father, but he's very low-key~a good fighter and horseman, just not a "grandstander".

      I could have sworn that happened in "The Violent Men".

      I've seen the scenes you describe. That's puzzling for me; I always write down titles with dates and sometimes a description. Oh well...

      @MystMoonstruck the violent men is not the movie I was thinking of although I did just watch that movie and it was a pretty good western........ the movie I was asking about the main character had just got to this town and as an outsider the townsfolk was giving him a hard time. (I want to say that he moved there because of a woman who was from there but he was not much of a cowboy himself but I am not 100% sure about that).one guy tried to start a fist fight with him and he backed down and the townsfolk picked on him and called him yellow. the next morning he went and found the guy who wanted to fight him and called him out to fight when no one else was around to prove he was not a coward, then the guy asked him why he did not want to fight in front of everyone to prove it and he replied he only needed to prove it to himself.

      then later they tricked him into getting on the unbroken horse and he got thrown, and again they picked on him and he went back later when no one was around and broke the horse.

      also if you know any other good westerns feel free to tell me about them.

      a movie about a girl who lost her father who was rich , and she lived alone after that in an apartment . No one know where she is and she is always too afraid to go outdoor and she only talks to her father's old friend . Until her old woman neighbor died accidentally in her home , though a police man visited the girl just for investigation when he noticed a Signature on all her kitchen tools (tea cups, ..) .Then he search about it and knew that the Signature belong to that rich family who died and left a disappeared girl , who is the girl we are talking about .

      On the other hand there were a couple who lived instead of the old woman next door.the woman were trying to be a friend with the girl and telling her about her mean husband and convince her to go out . her father's friend encourage her to be her new neighbor friend . After a lot of scenes and at the end it seems that her father's friend and the couple were planning to rap the girl and leave her with no thing . but she was clever and understood that before few minutes before they do it . And She left with all her money & courage after the police man helped her.

      From IMDb review: When the film begins, young Miranda (Kitty Winn) is driving like she would just as soon die~and she nearly does! She winds up in the hospital, and her father (Martin Sheen) is scared but seems to know not to yell at her. Later, after trying very unsuccessfully to communicate with her about her problems, he offers her a VERY strange gift~a stack of audio recordings her mother made specifically to be given to Miranda when she is older. ... It seems that Miranda's mother, Janet (Bonnie Bedelia), died when Miranda was only a toddler, and the tapes consist of her mother talking to herabout her life and giving her nuggets of wisdom.

Taking his vintage Bugatti into the countryside, he asks for directions to Meachum Hall, but the old man wanders off without answering. Miller finds the drive full of old cars, much like his own. Changing into a 'Jesse James' outfit, he attempts to find out why Sir Robert Sawyer invited him. The other guests are a pretty strange bunch, too; the only welcoming face belongs to Rose, a beautiful young woman dressed as a butterfly. As the evening progresses, Miller learns that she is betrothed to John, a man she does not love. Rose sent the invitation. She begs Miller to take her away from the house. She seems genuinely frightened as though somehow sensing impending disaster...

      I have searched for the title of a movie for decades. It was a black & white, probably from the 1930s or '40s. I watched it on late night tv back in the '80s as a young teen and it was the first movie that affected me, haunting me since.

      A man has car trouble and makes his way to a large home in search of help. There was a costume party going on at the house and he meets a lady wearing wings (can't remember if it was butterfly or angel). They spent time together most of the night at the party before he had to return to his car. He went back (the following day, I think), and the house had burned down. He went to a neighboring house (business?) asking about the people who lived in the burned home, mentioning he had just been there at a party. As the neighbor mentioned the house fire they went to another room and retrieved melted wings from a costume and said that the lady in question came there badly injured from the fire, but it wasn't the night before... it was years ago.

      There was this one movie that's been sitting in the back of my head for years because i never saw the whole thing.

      From what little i remember a bunch of teen/college kids seemed to be haunted by a spirit/demon what-have you.

      The Main Character (MC) goes to visit his dad in prison/assylum and the old man confirms he & his friends had something to do with it.

      In the climax of the movie, the MC goes to visit his dad in prison/assylum again. They hug, the MC says, 'I thought I'd lost you', then his face morphs and the Demon says 'As yours son has!' and then proceeds to choke the MC's dad.

      Looking for a film we saw in school around 1974 (So may be older). It was about a group of small girls who were invited to a neighbor lady's house for a tea party. They all say they will go but all back out because she was wearing a funny hat. One girl felt bad and did show up for the party with her little sister. I'm sure this was to model empathy for us. Any ideas ?

      Early 70's movie. A person is tricked into going back to the crime scene. I think it is down an embankment to the water. Anyway, you think they are the good guy throuout the movie as they are made to think they are going crazy and the only way to verify they aren't. When they finally go to the crime scene, they are arrested.

      I never knew a site like this existed! I have been haunted by the memory of this film for years. I barely noticed it at the time, during the year 2001, in the dorms of our school in Massachusetts. I believe the film was American. It seemed to be a favorite funny oddity, perhaps a cult classic enjoyed by the other students.

      All I remember is during the first half of the film a man buys his wife a brand new white Cadillac, and it has the old fins on it, like a white Cadillac would from the 50s or 60s, because I think the film was set in the 50s or early 60s. But, the film was *not* that old, the film seemed to be produced contemporarily. The most captivating part of that scene, when the man gave his wife the brand new white Cadillac in the 50s or 60s, is that she is just so over the top, and she exclaims “Oh! It’s a Cadillac!” as she runs out of their house to look at it. She says that several times, “It’s a Cadillac!” because she is just so surprised and excited to receive that brand new white Cadillac from the 50s or 60s.

      Later in the film, perhaps toward the end of the movie I think, her husband winds up in the hospital and she is notified of this emergency, and I believe some time has passed since she was gifted with the Cadillac, but she then drives a very panicked and hysterical drive to the hospital (for comedic effect) in this white Cadillac, and I think she’s going over hills and through yards and she’s tearing this white Cadillac all apart trying to get to the hospital, and she just keeps screaming “I’m coming, (Larry, or Harold, or whatever her husband’s name was) “I’m coming, Larry!” or “I’m coming, Harold!” Whatever her husband’s name was, and she just keeps screaming that over and over again. I think that was the climax of the movie and the funniest part as she just continued to barrel toward the hospital in this white Cadillac as the bumper fell off, and other parts fell off, and she crashed this big white Cadillac all apart just trying to get to her husband in the hospital.

      That's all I remember, but it made such an impression on me, and I didn’t realize it until later! It was really an intense acting part for this woman in the film. I have never forgotten it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, I love reading your comments!

      @Heather ~ The only one I can think of is much later than your estimate. What comes to mind for me is "His Love Makes You Beautiful" from "Funny Girl" starring Barbra Streisand.

      I can't find the film clip except for the hilarious part in which Fanny Brice is revealed as an extremely pregnant bride.

      Here's the song on YouTube with the lyrics for each month's bride: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1g6fRJN06E

      Here's the IMDb link to the movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062994/

      Wait! I found a recording of that number, but it's not from the movie. It just shows that production number on stage; it will give you some idea of whether this is the movie you're looking for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlLSYJ9uDP8

      I'm looking for a movie where a guy takes his new girlfriend t meet his family, and they sneak away downstairs to get it on and while they are down there, they hear someone has broken into the house and murdered his whole family and the staff. The murders start to load up all of the art work in the house that is supposed to be very valuable. The guy and his girlfriend try to survive quietly downstairs. Eventually the after everything is over, the girl finds that the guy is actually in on it and planned for his family to be killed and needed her only as a witness to what had happened. I watched "You're Next" yesterday and it seemed very similar and reminded me of this movie. I cant remember what it is called or who the actors are. I know the girlfriend's face as an actor but I do not know her name or anything she has played in. She is Caucasian, brunette, young (at the time) and she has a unique look. Very very slight resemblance to Anne Hathaway. I recognize her mostly from T.V. as opposed to movies but I cant think of anything by name!

      Okay this might be a stretch but please someone help me. It aired in the 1990's on FX. It was a B horror movie I think of some sort. It was basically about a cheating husband who hooked up with a blond prostitute and there were lines like, "you have a nice body," "I did some football in high school," and they were at shady part of town. I remember there was this creepy guy who was either her pimp or someone who just watched over her and the last part I remember was there was a monster that hatched from eggs outside of the window. Does anyone remember that movie? It has been bothering me for years and I cannot find it.

      @Michelle ~ Your description reminds me of "You'll Like My Mother" (1973). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068005/

      From IMDb review: Patty Duke is lovely and appealing as Francesca Kinsolving, a very pregnant young woman whose husband was killed in Vietnam. She makes the journey from L.A. to snowbound Minnesota, where the Kinsolving family homestead is. She's hoping to make some sort of connection with her mother-in-law, about whom he spoke so highly. But when she gets to the estate, the mother turns out to be an odd duck and a forbidding character. What's more, this woman has a daughter, Kathleen, who has her own problems. Francesca realizes that she's not welcome there but becomes a prisoner anyway when bad weather prevents her from leaving.

      My note: Then, there's the very unbalanced, vicious young man hiding in the house!

      Hey, a 90s movie I guess about a mom became a teenager magically again while watching her Old time photos, that was caused By some sort of electricity failure in the house/garbage truck hitting something . And she went to school with her daughter and her kid’s bae fell for her. At the end she returns to her old self again.
