Could #141 be the corpse bride?

A good n- creepy guess but incorrect.

141. An extremely bizarre tea-party. The table is set with beer braised rabbit with carrots, onions and potatoes, a jar of lemonade and butter tarts for dessert.

CLUE: a jar of peanut butter and ants

CLUE: It had a very limited release even though the director is well known for both his direction *and* animation.

Added clue: Director was a member of Monty Python.

Would that be "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Cracking film.

Si

Tideland?

Name the film in which mushrooms play a minor, but significant role in forwarding themes.

For a fleeting moment, a hunt for trumpet mushrooms unites a disengaged father with his two children.

Hidden deep within the woods, chanterelles evoke nostalgia for those resigned to the grimness of their ongoing lives: a time of family connections when traditions were passed down from one generation to the next. The best mushroom one could ever find, they represent promise. As long as they keep it a secret from their mother, the children may be taken high into the mountains to search for them one day when they are older.

Black mushrooms mean death: inescapable, horrifying, thrilling.

Guessing on #157 - Stranger Than Fiction? Will Ferrell doesn' t know the difference between cookies that are just baked or that come from a box. I don't quite remember the daily green apple -- but he was pretty obsessive about things like brushing his teeth. I think I wish I had paid more attention watching this movie!

That's right!

Will Ferrell grabbed a green apple from the bowl on his kitchen counter as he walked out the door each morning; you could see it in his mouth as he counted his steps across the crosswalk on his way to the bus stop.

A brilliant movie with an outstanding cast, one of my recent favourites.

Our end-of-the-week morning recap:

Please don't assign numbers to your new movie foods...if a movie is solved before it gets put into a recap, it's not given a number since it's out of play.

Also, we're getting some repeat movies. Try not to use "Pretty Woman", "The Godfather", "Cool Hand Luke", "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", "Fargo", "Moonstruck", "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "Dirty Dancing" as they've all been used twice.

Some new clues have been added to existing puzzles.

CONGRATULATIONS TO:

-waterdogs for correctly guessing that #157 (In separate instances, a green apple eaten each morning, and a glass of milk and cookies "warm and gooey, right out of the oven." CLUE: The lead character never liked cookies until he tasted these which had been baked especially for him) is the film "Stranger Than Fiction"

************

WAITING FOR CONFIRMATION:

-The Blissful Glutton has guessed that #141 (An extremely bizarre tea-party. The table is set with beer braised rabbit with carrots, onions and potatoes, a jar of lemonade and butter tarts for dessert) is the film "The Corpse Bride".

-insomniac has guessed that #123 ("you know what a putenesca is? it means naughty girl's pasta.") is the film "Lemony Snicket Series of Unfortunate Events".

-Toliver has guessed that #123 is "The Goodbye Girl"

-Simon_S has guessed that #141 is the film "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas".

-The Blissful Glutton has guessed that #141 is the film "Tideland".

We know that #97 is not "Little Miss Sunshine"

#153 is not "Legal Eagles"

#141 is not "The Corpse Bride" or "The Brothers Grimm" or "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen"

************

STILL UNSOLVED AND TAUNTING US UNMERCIFULLY:

97. Ahi Tuna, a glass of water

CLUE: toothpaste

CLUE: Christmas cookies, herbal tea

CLUE: a big stack of pancakes topped with ice cream, whipped cream, M&Ms, sprinkles, and chocolate syrup

123. "you know what a putenesca is? it means naughty girl's pasta."

141. An extremely bizarre tea-party. The table is set with beer braised rabbit with carrots, onions and potatoes, a jar of lemonade and butter tarts for dessert.

CLUE: a jar of peanut butter and ants

CLUE: It had a very limited release even though the director is well known for both his direction *and* animation.

CLUE: Director was a member of Monty Python.

148. In a marketplace, buying pears, Brioche, grapes, fresh cheeses, wine, crusty loaves of bread, and a fresh pork hock

153. cold hot dogs, mustard, potato chips, beer, milk

154. REVISED CLUE: A floor picnic of roast chicken, rudely interrupted by monetary concerns and time constraints.

155. Sugar and HIGH TEA.

CLUE: Breadcrumbs.

156. laughing, guffaw....."CHICLETS!!!!!!!!!!!"

CLUE: there is a concession stand with a big stack of cookies displayed on a long pole and the guy selling the cookies does not like loud music, only "Sha Na Na"

158. "I love their eggrolls" " Eat your eggs" and four perfect T-bone steaks

159. An oatmeal cream pie, an apple, and a family dinner featuring a turkey.

160. Name the film in which mushrooms play a minor, but significant role in forwarding themes -

For a fleeting moment, a hunt for trumpet mushrooms unites a disengaged father with his two children.

Tideland is the film! Not sure if I'd recommend it considering the rather gruesome content but that isn't unusual for Gilliams films. Odd, fascinating and faintly disgusting. :laugh:

Sorry if I'm doing this wrong. I'll admit I have not read through all this thread. I'd like to add a new puzzle and hope it was never discussed before.

Puzzle: Dumplings play a big and important role. They are a key to solve a mystery for a man's incarceration.

Hope this is all you need.
