Living In Someone Else's Shoes

TV shows, movies, books, or other media that involve people living as "someone else" temporarily - whether swapping roles, taking a new role, or pretending to be someone else - to see life in someone else's shoes. [more inside]

Movie characters who chase lost loves?

Trying to think of movies in which the main story concerns a character trying to win back a lost love. For example: Gene Hackman attempts to re-woo his estranged wife in "The Royal Tenenbaums". Julia Roberts goes for her ex in "My Best Friend's Wedding". Any more?

Amp & speaker recommendations for outdoor movie series

Outdoor cinema-fi - I'm running an outdoor community movie series in an urban park. Should attract up to 200 people. I need recommendations for an audio set up. Last year I used my NAD amp/receiver with some home-made speakers; this set up occasionally shorted the amp (it switched off). This year I have a budget of about $1k for amp, speakers and wiring. Any suggestions? What are the major considerations? Thx

airline movies

Why are movies on airplanes so bad? I just sat through 12 hours of oxygen-deprived mediocrity (Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Rumor Has It, King Kong, The Transporter 2). I mean, it is just simple economics -- do the airline companies get a better deal on movies that suck? But then why does it cost no more to watch or rent a good movie than a bad one? If they're aiming for wide mainstream taste, couldn't they at least have things everyone wanted to see -- movies that have won awards, or genuinely done well at the box office?

On-screen sexual intercourse - a comparitive study

Any film that is pornographic in nature depicts sex as an interaction of two bodies that resembles two jackhammers fighting. Anything rated 18 or lower pictures sex as something that happens with virtually no movement and very little exertion. Why have these two forms not only seperated but moved quite so far apart?

Italian Klansmen???

I caught The Godfather: Part III on cable last night, and I was wondering about something. There's a street parade in (I guess) New York's Little Italy in which, along with the priests and altar boys, there's these four guys in hooded robes carrying a nearly life-size figure of the Madonna and Child. The robes and hoods these four porters are wearing look exactly like Ku Klux Klan outfits, only without the sigil that's typically seen on them -- just plain white. What's the significance of these four people wearing hoods -- why would they be covered up in this fashion? Is it just coincidence that their pointy-topped hoods make them look like KKK regalia, or did the Klan copy a Roman Catholic fashion statement?

Another fine scrape.

I have been scouring the web for a way to get easily-available local-area movie schedules via RSS. Yahoo, Google, and IMDB all present perfectly decent HTML of this information, and there is one My Yahoo to RSS service; sadly, it's ad hoc and frequently fails to set the localization cookie. What am I missing? This should be a revenue oppotunity for the studios and theaters - where is the sweet creamy RSS I crave?

Haunted by a song in a goddamn Coke ad

Recently movie theaters 'round here were showing a Coke ad that had some interesting music. The ad was a series of stills telling a story of someone going back in time and giving [the hated product] to various people, running out, pissing off Genghis Khan, etc. The music wasn't in English, sounded Eastern European to my ignorant ears. It had a male voice and a sort of swinging sound. They don't seem to be playing this ad anymore here. What was the music?
