Okay, help me AskMe, you're my only hope. Everybody gets at least one, and now it's my turn to be stuck on the name of a movie I once saw and loved. It is basically about a Russian mail-order bride, but it is definitely not Birthday Girl, despite certain keyword similarities. It's a little indie movie with no name stars. There are also no mobsters. It's not a thriller at all. It's very sweet. Basic plot summary inside. [more inside]

Name-that-movie time! Bumbling dad switches on over-the-top Christmas lights, causing the house to go up in flames and massive disappointment. A colleague and I were discussing Christmas movies and we both thought of this scene but we can't remember the movie it came from. It's probably a well-known US comedy (like Home Alone or Honey I shrunk the kids) from the 1980-1990s. This should be a piece of cake but my Google/IMDb/Tvtropes-fu fails me.

French Movie Name. I just can't remember the name of that french movie, it's happens entirely in one night in all over Paris. There was a football (soccer) match, some guys were watching it on a TV in the street, the guy or someone near him broke it and they wanted to kill him and the movie went all insane going all over the place and all over Paris with people getting killed all over the place (for what I can remember).

I'm directing a farce with a bunch of high-schoolers, and would love to give them some movie suggestions to look at for characters. They are pretty classic comic archetypes, but my brain is reeling a bit trying to think of all of them, and though I'd put it out to the hive mind. The only catch is that I can't really suggest any R-Rated movies, because most of them aren't old enough to watch them... [more inside]
Just saw Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. I feel like the storyline, (i.e. guy/girl is hung up on his/her good-looking-yet-lame ex, meets a smart cool new person, and ends up rejecting their old flame for said new love interest when old flame gets jealous / comes around too late), has been used plenty to the point of cliche. Problem is, I can't think of any examples! Can anyone give me some? Thanks!

The number one movie last week was a comedy about dodgeball that has a lot of people my age waxing nostalgic about elementary school. There also seems to be a new televised Extreme Dodgeball "league". There's just one problem: None of these people are playing or talking about the game I remember as "dodgeball" from my childhood.
