They used three schools in the filming
of the 1999 fruit-tacular comedy. The classroom and
hallway scenes were filmed at Long Beach Polytechnic
High School. The outdoor scenes and gym prom scenes
were filmed at Robert A. Millikan High School of Long
Beach. Finally, the lacrosse game and outside scenes
for the music competition were filmed at California
State University, Long Beach.
may be a potty-mouthed movie, but it still doesn't
touch South Park....
movie features Anderws as the scientist, and because
all of his Nazi-head-revival attempts end in failure
they try with a newer specimen, the poor Elsa. According
to the IMDB comment, her head simply says "Bury
me" at the end of the movie, but I buy your full
line (it has a better ring to it), and bet the IMDB
user simply forgot the rest. Sounds like a good fun
midnight popcorn (and beer... lots of beer) flick,
but unfortunately this one does not seem to be available
on video or DVD yet.
IMDB link for more info is here:
name of the restaurant was "The Striped Bass".
It's regarded as 'the best seafood restaurant in Philadelphia',
and has a four star rating from the "Mobile Travel
mega-well-regarded flick has an average rating by
over 100,000 users on IMDB of 9.0, and is their #2
average scored flick of all-time, behind only "The
Godfather". It's definitely a goodie...
seems to be a lot of trivia questions related to this
movie. It's the 1978 stink-bomb "Sgt. Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band". It featured not only
Aerosmith but: The Bee Gees, Steve Martin, Peter Frampton,
Earth Wind and Fire, Alice Cooper, George Burns and
more in the movie and singing Beatles' songs. The
story was derived from the Beatles concept album,
and was about a band battling the evil music industry.
I haven't seen it, but it sounds like one word: Ass.
One of those 70's stupid acid trip movies that make
no sense. But then again, maybe it's a classic- there
are enough questions asked about the thing.
related note, often on movie sets now whenever a director
feels he finally has the shot he likes, he'll yell,
"Check the gate!" (not "That's a wrap!").
It is used because camera operators will check the
film gate to make sure that the film hasn't jammed,
or that there were no hairs that had become lodged
inside, necessitating a reshoot of the entire scene.
So after the director calls it a wrap (which releases
the cast and crew, and the union clock stops) there's
a tense moment or two. No hair in the gate? Then it
really is a wrap.
did some looking with the usual suspects: IMDB and
Google. Carl Reiner was the director of the movie,
and a writer. However IMDB lists only his wife, Estelle,
with a cameo as an elevator passenger. Seeing as his
wife made it in though, and he was the director, I
thought that it was a pretty good bet that he also
appeared in the movie.
did some snooping with Google, and surprisingly could
not find any evidence of a cameo by him in the flick.
Most of the websites harped on a cameo by Merv Griffin,
and one page dedicated exclusively to Reiner had an
exhaustive list of his cameos. They gave: It's A Mad,
Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), The Gazebo (1959), Generation
(1969), The End (1978), Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
(1982), and The Slums of Beverly Hills (1998), as
movies in which he briefly appeared. However, no "Man
With Two Brains".
looks like you get your $20. Good work, and I hope
you meant your bet was from six years ago, and not
that your're betting against a six-year-old! C'mon,
"The Man With Two Brains" isn't exactly
a kids movie. :)
you're looking for total gross of all movies, I came
across a great site called "The Numbers"
(http://www.the-numbers.com/) which has a complete
breakdown per picture for each of the directors and
a grand total. Spielberg has 21 movies listed as ones
he directed (remember, he'll get the totals for the
Indiana Jones movies since he actually directed them,
although George came up with the main idea and produced
them). His total is around $3.1 billion dollars total,
with an average gross of just under $150 million each.
Lucas, on the other hand, has only five movies listed
as his directorial efforts, (again, he didn't even
direct The Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi).
His total gross for the five is only $1.3 billion,
but a much more impressive avergae per movie of $261
notable directors are the above-mentioned James Cameron
with a total gross of $1.1 billion, Chris Columbus
with $1.5 billion ('Home Alone' 1 & 2, 'Mrs. Doubtfire',
and 'Harry Potter' 1 & 2), Robert Zemeckis with
$1.5 billion ('Back to the Future' trilogy, 'Forrest
Gump', 'Roger Rabbit'), and Ron Howard with $1.1 billion
('A Beautiful Mind', 'The Grinch', 'Apollo 13', 'Ransom').
Peter Jackson will probably be joining the over-billion
club soon with 'Return of the King' in December.
list is not adjusted for inflation, which would give
a bump to some of Spielberg's and Lucas' numbers,
as some of their biggest hits were from the 70's and
early 80's, and also directors like Alfred Hitchcock
would see a definite jump off the measley $144 million
total he is given for his 20+ movies.
banjo-genius boy at the gast station was played by
an actor named Hoyt Pollard.According to IMDB he made
one more film appearance 13 years later in a movie
called "Blastfighter". His role.... 'Banjo
