I saw a British movie in the late nineties that had a woman falling in love with a cross-dressing man. Any ideas?

Speculation abound that the new Dark Knight Rises trailer actually contains plot spoilers. Can anyone think of other movie trailers that actually give away the movie ending? Clearly this doesn't apply to movies that were books first.

What movies are like "The Blues Brothers" and "O Brother Where Art Thou" in that they have music, but not in the "show tunes" style of most musicals?

Car rolling over filter: I'm looking for movies wherein a car rolls in a spectacular (potentially test-able) way. Or for an interesting or counter-intuitive reason. Think along the lines of the car flip on the way down Fillmore in Jade. Or the Bond/Casino Royale flip of the McClaren. Hopefully even more spectacular.

Help! I need ideas for two small figures (toys most likely?) to serve as the main characters in stop-motion movie clips. They should be under 6 inches tall, more or less. Ideas for a male and a female figure needed. The male character is a geek. The female is a girl-next-door type. [more inside]

Looking for more examples of a plot. Well, more of a structure really. The one from Noises Off, where you are shown how the story should go, then they go through it again, only this time everything goes wrong. Bonus points if they go through it a third time, and it absolutely explodes. [more inside]

Please help me find the names of three vaguely recalled movies from my past: a teen flick from the 80s, a dubbed (possibly Italian) horror film from the 70s, and a scifi adventure from the 60s (maybe)? [more inside]

Name that movie! I am trying to recall the name of a movie I saw in the early to mid 2000s. It was a thriller drama, maybe classified as horror (although I don't remember it being particularly gruesome). It offers an explanation for some of the thousands of unsolved missing persons cases by following a cross country truck driver who is a serial killer. [more inside]

What font did Alfred Hitchcock use for the intertitles in his 1928 silent comedy Champagne
? Sample here.
Identifont and WhatTheFont have both failed me. I'm looking for a free replica or close match.

Hi all! I'm in a film production class and I have to shoot an intimate scene set in a restaurant booth.
Frankly, I'm having problems figuring out how to stage everything, so I'd like to take a look at some similar movie scenes. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any. YouTube has been no help (maybe I'm not searching properly).
Can anyone suggest some specific movies with scenes set in a bar or restaurant booth? I'd prefer something film noir-ish but I'll take any suggestions.

So, you know how Hollywood sometimes makes big stupid films that flop at home (at times not making enough money), but then they release the films abroad and they do well (enough to make more money and sometimes merit a sequel!)? Does the reverse happen as well? Are their foreign films that do well in the US (and I'll include critical success as much as popularity -- and popularity among people who go see foreign films), but in their home countries, they are considered silly or stupid or just not good?

What are the options for making publicly available educational movie files, so they can be accessed by computer illiterate people, yet without making them publicly available/indexed by Google? I tried YouTube but hit its "video is too long" limitation (the movies are 35 minutes and I really don't want to chop them up into 10 min chunks). The movies are created by a charity and I have full permission of the copyright holder. The movies are not available online anywhere else. (Read on for more info.) [more inside]

What are some movies that portray a career or job or professional really well and accurately? Movies that made you sit up and go " Yep that's what being a lawyer/doctor/actor/food additive executive" is like.

Mid/late 80s-90's comedy/horror flick. Seems very B movie esque. It actually reminds me of something that Troma would churn out. It had to do with a high school reunion. Everyone had quirky tendencies and maybe they were all murders? I remember a murder happening in a school cafeteria kitchen and think someone was decapitated with something silly.

I'm looking for lists of TV shows and movies that have characters referencing numbered lists of rules.
As examples in Wedding Crashers they reference a random assortment of rules e.g. Rule #110: Never walk away from a crasher in a funny jacket. Fight Club has "First Rule of fight club is..."
What else has a set of rules like this?
