149. In different scenes, Jack daniels, a fruit pie (off by a couple of months), dumplings and a jaw breaker.Clue - a Holy Grail.

The Fisher King?

We have a winner ladies and gentlemen!! Love that film, such tender and horrific scenes in a comic wrap.

I'll second that emotion, Henry. Great movie, indeed. :)

An start-of-the-week 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:

-monavano has correctly guessed that #152 (A glass jar is dipped into a beehive and emerges filled with honey. It is then wiped "clean" with a dry cloth and presented to a picnic guest) is the film "Fried Green Tomatoes".

-carold has solved #147 (She contemplates murder with fresh berries CLUE: Giving him the tainted berries was not very "friend"ly) as the film "The Good Girl".

-shellfishfiend has correctly guessed that "He eats the corn to destroy the evidence of his crime" is the Johnny Depp film "Secret Window".

-insomniac has solved "bring me my Obsession perfume, a couple of macaroons and my computer, I need to do some email" as the film "Keeping the Faith".

-glossyp has correctly guessed that #144 (A centerpiece of artichokes. Artichokes to eat, too) is the film "Emma".

-mooshmouse has solved #149 (In different scenes, Jack daniels, a fruit pie (off by a couple of months), dumplings and a jaw breaker. CLUE: a Holy Grail) as the film "The Fisher King".

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

WAITING FOR CONFIRMATION:

-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"

-petite tête de chou has guessed that #151 ("Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte") is "Young Frankenstein"

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

#153 is not "Legal Eagles"

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

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."

140. A peanut butter sandwich, rationed into halves in an attic, and gobbled as a storm rages outside the flapping window.

CLUE: Not only garbage goes into the dumpster.

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.

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

150. In seperate scenes, creme de menthe, tinned and irradiated fruit, tinned ham, tinned peas, tinned beans and.........omelette (also off).

CLUE: Absolute rage !

151. "Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte"

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

154. A floor picnic of roast chicken, rudely interrupted by monetary concerns.

155. Sugar and HIGH TEA.

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

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."

****

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.

displayed on a long pole and the guy selling the cookies does not like

loud music, only "Sha Na Na"

new clue for #156. :rolleyes:

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.

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!

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.
