New movies:

Clue - Our villain gets sprayed with eggs, milk, showered with sugar and dumped with flour and eventually gets baked in a big cake.

Clue - Our heroes try to get watermelons from a group of crazy ninja-karate birdbrains. Nobody gets the watermelons in the end.

Second Clue: Ice Age

That's right!~ :smile:

NEW MOVIE 186. Our villain gets sprayed with eggs, milk, showered with sugar and dumped with flour and eventually gets baked in a big cake.

New Clue: Our villain is played by an accomplished actress who in another movie killed a family pet - a bunny.

101 Dalmations and Fatal Attraction. Glenn Close plays her psychos with such panache, eh? My favorite is her Marquise De Merteuil from Dangerous Liaisons.

Shelley: Would you like some pie?

A recap to remove solved puzzles:

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", "Repo Man", "Mrs. Doubtfire", "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "Dirty Dancing" as they've all been used twice.

CONGRATULATIONS TO:

-petite tête de chou for correctly guessing that #186 (Our villain gets sprayed with eggs, milk, showered with sugar and dumped with flour and eventually gets baked in a big cake) is the filn "101 Dalmatians".

-dsquare for solving #187 (Our heroes try to get watermelons from a group of crazy ninja-karate birdbrains. Nobody gets the watermelons in the end) as the animated film "Ice Age".

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

WAITING FOR CONFIRMATION:

-petite tête de chou has guessed that #174 (Raw corn, bananas, scenery

CLUE: The actor won't eat the banana, but does chew the scenery) could be "WarGames".

#154 is not "The Notebook" nor is it "Jamon, Jamon"

#174 is not "1492 - Conquest of Paradise"

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

STILL UNSOLVED AND TAUNTING US:

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

CLUE: Every meal in the movie was disrupted by SOMETHING, but no other by money.

CLUE: The hero speaks to an older woman, and her comeback was quite memorable.

CLUE: The lady came to the hero's place of work in order to watch him. No food was visible at the moment, though the aura of ham was present.

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

173. Jack Nicholson film: features a lot of barbequeing (as I recall)

174. Raw corn, bananas, scenery

CLUE: The actor won't eat the banana, but does chew the scenery.

177. I hid behind the car. I didn't want to get any ketchup on my dress.

CLUE: I've been carrying around this ketchup bottle for weeks!... WEEKS!!!

184. sushi, including 'masago' and 'amachi'

CLUE: in a separate scene, Noodles eaten from a paper carton (on a park bench)

188. Poem improvised by prospective husband-material at family dinner that begins with a pile of thick strands of pasta sauced with wild fennel:

"Snails to eat

And woman sweet--

An incredible treat!"

Or something to that effect.

****

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.

New Clue in honor of watching an old favorite---I rewound four times, so I hope I heard it right:

A Mexicali Chili Barb

A Double Chubby Chuck

Two Orders of French Fries

Two Cherry Cokes

Deserted before the order arrives, to go look for liquor.

American Graffiti! What a perfect, all-American film to watch over the Memorial Day weekend. LOVE it. Paired with The Last Picture Show it would make a great a double bill.

Sorry, Viva, no, not Lost in Translation. Another clue: in another scene, Snapper - discussed but not seen.

QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

ADDED CLUES: a) Another incentive to make the gaped-toothed dinner guest a member of the family: the prospect of lasagna and sardines. b) Takes place on an island, c) in black and white.

here's one - paraphrased

He sampled my hand, and liked it so much, he's been waiting around to consume the rest of me.

Since activity on this thread has waned, I'm just going to provide the answer in the form of a plug: Seduced and Abandoned. Hilarious; dark humor and for Netflix subscribers, available.

You got it right petite tête de chou! I was afraid I was going to give out clues like human cheeks skewered, barbequed with mushrooms.
