New challenge.

One of the most memorable scenes, in what movie, featured baked beans and chocolate syrup?

A boyhood fantasy of mine: Ann Margaret covered in chocolate syrup.

Tommy is the answer.

You are correct - A fantasy of mine as well.

Could #1 be 1941?  I can't think of any other movie that referenced Dumbo in it.  Plus, it's the Spielberg film that many have forgotten (but how could you???!!!)

brilliant Varmint...I love that movie; my favourite line is 'the dummy's right'

when the ventriloqist's dummy warns of the raid.....hahahahahaha

YES! Such a silly movie, but cooking scene scandalized me when I was a child. You're now my hero, Varmint!

""Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye. We've come to play for our dinner. Or should I say, stay for our dinner. Or even slay for our dinner...We've come to drink your wine, taste your food and take pleasure in your women.""

Based on ICTD's new clue, what REALLY, really bad movie--attended reluctantly because it meant good company for dinner--presents the slow peeling of a hard-boiled egg as a sign of unmitigated evil?

ETA: April, I can't believe you solved Karen's clue before I finished this post! :laugh:

ps.

another clue for No. 2: the guy aspires to win a girl above his station in life. The movie could be called sexist and vulgar, but has become a bit of a cult classic for the male star

I don't have a guess on #2 but I am attempting to narrow it down.

I'm thinking this has to be a British/European film since the phrase "a few slaps around the chops" is more a British phrase than American. Also, having to do with a "station in life" which, again, is a British term (see any Merchant-Ivory film).

Does this narrow it any?

That'd be Angel Heart. You thought it was that bad? Hmm. Not as good as the original book but it didn't (as my favorite movie critic once wrote) "do for movies what the Jonestown cool aid did for kids' drinks." :raz:

2. a spaghetti-proof bib, two pork chops and a few slaps round the chops........

CLUE: the guy aspires to win a girl above his station in life. The movie could be called sexist and vulgar, but has become a bit of a cult classic for the male star

Long shot guess here - The Godfather?

A "nooner" recap:

A. UTTERLY UNSOLVED

2. a spaghetti-proof bib, two pork chops and a few slaps round the chops........

CLUE: the guy aspires to win a girl above his station in life. The movie could be called sexist and vulgar, but has become a bit of a cult classic for the male star

3. How about a disgusting bony, lethal Chinese meal??

CLUE: How about: life's nothing but a game??

CLUE 2: the director famously weaves the psychological with the physical, sometimes reality and fantasy are blurred. i.e. he's a bit weird.

CLUE 3: the male lead is an English pin-up; the female lead American with an actor dad (no longer with us)

4. A ruined dinner, and chocolate chocolate chip ice cream to apologize.

CLUE: Later he gives her a box of chocolate-covered cherries with somebody else's name on it.

5. Tuna noodle casserole for Sunday dinner, and hot chocolate and lemon drops before bed. Movie also contains catfish and popcorn.

CLUE: If it helps any, it was written by a Southern writer

Another CLUE: This author also wrote another script/movie mentioned near the begining of the thread

6. "... and mashed potatoes. Naw, CREAMED potatoes. An' peas an' onion rings".

B. SOLUTIONS AWAITING CONFIRMATION

1. "red hots.. get your red hots" GTO guesses the vendor calls this in "Streetcar Named Desire".

2. Carolyn has guessed that #4 is "Tootsie".

****

NOTE: If you post a movie, please check back to see if the guesses on your movie are correct or not so we can keep the "Still in Play" list accurate.

Also, consider posting more clues if your movie remains unsolved.

edited (Thanks varmint) to remove #1 ("1941").

A new movie to name...I will add clues eventually if no one gets it:

Homemade ketchup that may be too sweet ("All men like it on the sweet side").

That one is a little easy, so I'll leave it to the folks from Missouri to answer.

However, here's another one: a popsicle made of ketchup.

#4. Tootsie

Yes. "4. A ruined dinner, and chocolate chocolate chip ice cream to apologize. Later he gives her a box of chocolate-covered cherries with somebody else's name on it." --from Tootsie. Michael treated poor Sandy so badly while he was romancing Julie. Carolyn, you and I must watch the same kind of movies. :smile:

YES! Finally! We have a winnah, folks.

The original poster, Insomniac, had pm'ed me and gave the answer: Existenz.

Way to go, Forest! :laugh::laugh:

Here's one:

*To someone eating M&M's: "Don't eat the red ones."*

Here's another:

*A breakfast tray with a bowl of hot cereal, a teapot, a teacup and saucer, and a mouse.*

Still another:

*"I love it when it's hamburger day."*

And because I love this one:

* A flopped souffle because she doesn't turn on the oven.*
