For our 10th anniversary, I'd like to present movie buff Gnik Nus with a list of sweet songs sung by the actors in modern (say, the last 30ish years) comedy movies. So far I've come up with "Tonight You Belong To Me" from The Jerk, "I Was Born To Love You" by Chevy Chase in Caddyshack, and "I Wanna Grow Old With You" by Adam Sandler, and Steve Buscemi singing 'This Much Is True" in The Wedding Singer. Bonus points for sweet moments and then something funny happens, like when Bernadette Peters pulls out the trombone while they're softly singing on the beach.

Quick, blush-inducing question: remember the diner scene
in Silver Linings Playbook? I would like more scenes from movies/TV like that (basically, a conversation which plays out like an impromptu tango, and in which one/both parties finds themselves unexpectedly/uncomfortably/obviously aroused).

Tell me about films in which the actors use real drugs, or are under the influence of real drugs. Caffeine and nicotine don't count.

Does anyone remember the name of that TV and Movie character actor from 60s comedies who played fussy types and his catchphrase was "We-eeell!"? (I don't know how to spell it phonetically.) It was useless trying to Google this as I can't remember which movies or shows he was in, though it seemed like a lot. Thanks!

I LOVE movies where the villian is played by an actor who is typically cast as the good guy hero in their roles in other films. Off the top of my head I can think of Harrison Ford in "What Lies Beneath", Robin Williams in "One Hour Photo", and John Travolta in "The Taking of Pelham 123" Can you give me more examples?
Preferably good movies :-D

I am wondering how Hollywood movies that end up being complete failures both critically and commercially end up getting all the way through the process of being made and released into cinemas? Why isn't there more quality control? [more inside]

Casting calls for hired goons? Counter-intuitively, I may have a 'look' for movies/TV. Do I? If so, what do I do with it? [more inside]

What do you consider to be the best or most important movies of the past 20 years, whether Hollywood or international? I'm rebuilding much of my movie collection in 720p H.264 (approx 5GB each) or 1080p and want to be sure I don't miss anything. [more inside]

Ciaran Hinds is an Irish actor who played one of the Israeli operatives in Spielberg's Munich. I saw a snippet of a movie in which he played a bald literature professor. There was a red-haired woman who was his co-star. Does anyone know the name of the film? Thanks.

My Google-fu is weakening with age, and I can't seem to find a web site that will let me type in two movies (and/or television shows; ideally, both) and get a list of cast members shared between the two entries. Does such a thing exist?

I have a multi-pronged question about the soup-to-nuts process of movies getting onto cable television and actors getting their residual checks. [more inside]
