An American Tail: The Mystery of the Night Monster was the second and last direct-to-video sequel to An American Tail, starring Thomas Alexander Dekker as the main character, the young Fievel Mousekewitz. This film was first released on December 9, 1999, in Germany. In the United States, it was released by Universal Studios Home Entertainment in 2000. The ending of this film shows Fievel falling asleep which may mark that there wouldn't be another American Tail film.
Fievel, his friend Tony (the two male mice pictured above) and his sister Tanya(the female mouse pictured above), all get a job at the local newspaper, where the audience is introduced to Nellie, who wants to be an important reporter, but only gets small assignments, as if she were a secretary to Reed, the newspaper's editor. Throughout the film, Tanya tries to win Reed's heart, while Tony tries to get noticed by Reed and promoted to a reporter. Like in the previous movies where a mouse installation is directly below...
Cat's Eye (also known as Stephen King's Cat's Eye) is a 1985 horror film directed by Lewis Teague and written by Stephen King.

As he searches, the cat plays minor roles in the first two stories, witnessing some bizarre events: a smoker (James Woods) who is cured of his nicotine addiction by a Mafia-style organization; and a neglected wife's lover (Robert Hays) forced by her jealous husband to play a deadly game on the ledge of a tall building.In the final story, the cat has a bigger part to play. He finally finds the girl, who welcomes him and names him 'General'. Unfortunately, General soon runs afoul of her cat-hating mother, who treacherously sends him to...,
Trenchcoat is a live-action film produced by Walt Disney Pictures in 1983. The movie was directed towards a more mature audience when released at theaters, and therefore, Disney did not attach its name as such (it was rated PG in 1983 and Touchstone Films would not start until the following year).Sinister settings, menacing murderers and international intrigue are all revealed in this fast-paced, engaging detective spoof with plenty of plot twists. When aspiring mystery writer Mickey Raymond (Margot Kidder) travels to Malta to research her next novel and falls in love with a handsome, mysterious American (Robert Hays), she is drawn into a conspiracy more treacherous than any of the imaginary capers in her unpublished books....
Airplane II: The Sequel is an American comedy film, first released on December 10, 1982, written and directed by Ken Finkleman, and starring Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Lloyd Bridges, Chad Everett, William Shatner, Rip Torn and Sonny Bono. It is the sequel to the 1980 film Airplane!.
In some foreign releases (including Australia), Airplane II was titled Flying High II: The Sequel.
As did Airplane!, Airplane II spoofs airline disaster stories, such as Zero Hour! and Airport. This time, however, the plot combines elements of the science fiction film genre, drawing specifically from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Airplane II also makes light of the wave of aircraft hijackings that had occurred in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Pat Sajak has a minor role in this movie as a TV news anchor. The year before, he had been named host of Wheel of Fortune. Other cameos include George Wendt, David Leisure, Raymond Burr, Jack Jones, Hervé Villechaize, Art Fleming, Joyce DeWitt and John Vernon.
Airplane! is an American comedy film, first released on 27 June, 1980, produced, directed, and written by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker. Airplane! starred Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Lorna Patterson. For release in Australia and the Philippines, Airplane! was re-titled as Flying High. The title "Airplane!" was used for the UK release, even though "Aeroplane!" would be the correct British English spelling.
Airplane! is a spoof of the disaster movie genre. Airplane! (originally designed for a 20-minute sketch) is a virtual remake of the 1957 Canadian airplane disaster movie Zero Hour!, which featured Dana Andrews in the role of Lt. Striker, in which various jokes and gags have been added. The food poisoning plot came from Zero Hour!Airplane II: The Sequel, first released on December 10, 1982, attempted to tackle the science fiction film genre. Although most of the cast reunited for the...,
