   MeiDei posted on Movies & Reviews  1972 The film is flawed, but is pure fun from start to finish - so says Rotten Tomatoes.

Unsurprisingly, grumpy Southern chemical baron Jason Crockett is not terribly concerned with the environment. When Pickett Smith, a wildlife photographer in the area, stumbles upon the snakebitten corpse of Crockett's gardener, who was sent out to spray pesticide, he knows something is amiss. Smith attempts to warn Crockett and his family to postpone their Fourth of July celebrations as local animals begin behaving strangely, but Crockett stubbornly refuses.
Name the movie and the actors....

Mitchell Gant is a veteran American pilot who becomes involved in a top-secret mission to steal a high-tech Russian fighter plane known as "-------." Covertly entering the Soviet Union, Gant receives help from dissidents within the country, most notably a group of scientists who have been working on the plane. As Gant reaches his goal of heisting the aircraft, enemy pilots are quick to follow, leading to a sequence of soaring dogfights as he attempts to elude Soviet jets.

   Gram77  I can't remember the title but I think it was Clint Eastwood who stole the plane, and I remember it was a good movie, lots of great flying.

Ever since a vicious attack nearly claimed her life, 40-year-old Christine Lucas has suffered from anterograde amnesia and is unable to form new memories. Every morning, she wakes up in bed with a man she does not know, in an unfamiliar house with no memory of her life from her early twenties onwards. The man explains that he is her husband, Ben and that she suffered brain damage from a car accident ten years earlier. Christine receives treatment from Dr. Nasch, a neurologist at a local hospital who provides her a camera to record her thoughts and progress each day, and calls her every morning to remind her to watch the video in the camera. As Christine starts to uncover terrifying truths about her past, she begins to question everything -- and everyone -- around her.

   MeiDei  Hope has it perfectly (! ) - an interesting movie. Safety adds another character representation by Colin Firth. Mark Strong is one of my favorites (he was the guy that shot Colin's character at the end of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy w/Gary Olman in the lead ) and is in the new Kingsmen movies as the head tech guy - Colin was also in the first Kingsmen movie but died off.

When mild-mannered Martin Harvey finds out that he has inherited a vintage yacht, he decides to take his family on a Caribbean vacation to retrieve the vessel. Upon arriving on a small island and realizing that the ship is in rough shape, Martin and his family end up with more than they bargained for as the roguish Captain Ron signs on to sail the boat to Miami. It doesn't take long before Ron's anything-goes antics get the Harveys into plenty of trouble.

   MeiDei  No one needed to hand you a life jacket to answer this one correctly, Martin Short is the Dad in this film and you get to chase Martin or Kurt once you get to shore.

Police officers Ray and Gabe are narcotics experts working to bring down drug lord Yves Perret. In an attempt to stymie their efforts, Perret sets them up, making it look as if they've killed an FBI agent. Arrested and put in prison, the two cops formulate an escape plan and, once out, team up with Ray's exotic dancer sister, Katherine, in order to clear their records and take down Perret once and for all.

   MeiDei posted on Coffee Klatch  You drive a bus from Rotterdam to Delft. At the first bus stop, 33 people get in. At the second bus stop, 7 more people get in, and 11 passengers step off. At the third bus stop, 5 passengers step off and 2 people get in. After one hour, the bus arrives in Delft.

The question: What is the name of the driver?
