Need to identify this eighties/early nineties film.

In the early nineties I remember seeing this film, which must've been made a couple of years earlier, and I wonder if anyone could identify it. It was an American film about a crime novelist, who suddenly realizes he has a magic typewriter: whatever he writes with it comes true! Unfortunately, one of the villains of his books has come to life, and he steals the magic typewriter. Using the typewriter the villain does all sort of nasty things to the writer: first he turns him into a woman, and then makes him speak only by rapping (he hates rap). That's about all I can remember, except that at one point the writer rap about how awful it is that he can't scratch his balls (because he's now a woman).

John Candy had a magic typewriter in the film 'Delirious'.

C J (C J), Thursday, 20 April 2006 12:54 (fourteen years ago) link

Was it Delirious with John Candy? I haven't seen it, but it sounds like it fits. Except he wasn't a crime writer, he was a soap opera writer.

Gilbert O'Sullivan (kenan), Thursday, 20 April 2006 12:54 (fourteen years ago) link

No, that's not it. The plot sounds kinda similar, but the writer in the film didn't look like John Candy - he was thinner and had a darker hair. Also, I'm pretty sure he was a novelist rather than a soap opera writer, and he didn't wake up in his own fiction, some of it just came to life.

Tuomas (Tuomas), Thursday, 20 April 2006 12:58 (fourteen years ago) link

I really don't remember much about it except the scene where he raps about how awful it is he can't scratch his balls, 'cause he's turned into a lady. But that was a rather memorable scene.

There was a preview of a supposedly indie movie when I went to the movies the other day about a writer who's character is aware of his being written, and then comes to life, and the movie seemed to think this was some kind of clever, original idea.

yeah a plot keyword search on imdb only turns up 23 hits for typewriter and that's the only one that makes any sense, but you think Tuomas might have mentioned the fact that it was shot entirely in grainy black & white

also Dick Van Dyke rapping - is it as good as Debbie Harry rapping?

Well, I guess it might've been an TV series episode, but it seemed kinda longish for that, and I seem to remeber it being a film. The only show they were showing at Finnish TV at that time which might've had episodes like that was The Twilight Zone, and I clearly remember all the episodes I saw as episodes of The Twilight Zone, not as films. It might've been a made-for-TV movie though.

The imdb message boards for the similarly themed Will Farrell flick Stranger Than Fiction have a discussion comparing it to an episode of the New Twilight Zone, so it's possible. I checked an episode guide but couldn't find it. Unlikely that it would have the ball-scratching bit though.

The first season Twilight Zone came to a delightful conclusion on July 1, 1960, with this episode, written by Richard Matheson. Coming home early one afternoon, Victoria West (Phyllis Kirk) is shocked to find her playwright husband Gregory West (Keenan Wynn) in the arms of another woman named Mary (Mary LaRoche). When Victoria demands an explanation, Gregory is forced to reveal that Mary was purely a figment of his imagination, "invented" on the writer's tape recorder. To prove this point, Gregory not only makes Mary re-appear, but also a "huge, red-eyed element." But this is not the only surprise in store for the nonplussed Victoria West. The hilarious finale finds series creator Rod Serling joining in on the festivities. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

1960 though, maybe it was updated for the later series.

French, or maybe Spanish or Andorran film, late 90s or 2000s. I saw it in late 2009 but it was not necessarily new. It's set at some kind of orphanage or boarding house (kids are there, in any case) out in the boonies, kind of scrubby countryside, some hills. I can't remember the plot at all except that it is mostly or entirely set out at this orphanage, and there are mobsters or criminals that come out there to ...kill everybody? Or they just want some money or a particular guy? I feel like the climax is the kids kind of surviving against these gangsters. One kid spends a lot of the movie out on his own, maybe trying to run to the next town? Like he's really good at sports? And you think he's dead at one point but actually he survived and made a plan and comes back in the nick of time, I think. I'm making this sound a little like Home Alone but the kids are older than that and the tone is a lot heavier, though I think there are some laughs.

Doctor Casino, Saturday, 25 April 2015 22:43 (five years ago) link

That kind of reminds me on a movie I've been trying to identify since I saw it on TV maybe 15 years ago. I think it's from the 80s, and it's about this kid who defends his home and accosted family from intruding burglars/mobsters/criminals. At one point he fills a super-soaker with gasoline and, from a considerable distance, shoots it so that the stream of gas lands directly on the end of one guy's cigarette. At another point he goes to the bathroom, puts a bunch of chemicals on a rag, and then holds it to the criminal's mouth, knocking him out.

finally found this - it's Éric Rochant's Total Western. Google Translate of French Wikipedia suggests it was about a criminal thug who lays low by posing as a teacher at a juvenile offenders' center in the boonies. Some other mafioso types show up to take him down and recover some protection money he made off with, but with the help of the kids he takes them all down, brutally.

2) This one was definitely a TV series: it featured a boy who ended up in space in a rather weird way. Someone or something dislodged his room (but nothing else) from his parents' house, and the room was floating in space. So when he opened the door to his room, all he could see was stars! The series also had a cyborg bad guy with a scary, glowing cyborg eye.

Someone at tvtropes.com remembered this series too, though they couldn't remember its name either. They did provide this extra info though:

The house floating in space is almost identical to Zathura, However, the residents are not travelling home and there is a bubble shield around the house that protects it from impact. I would lean toward it being British in origin, and it had reruns in the early 2000s. Most likely on the BBC. live action. There is also one scene I remember: Two boys are standing outside the house (on the floating rock) the first boy is worried about something and asks the second boy for advice. Throughout the conversation the second boy is throwing stones at the bubble shield, trying to get them to go through, but they keep bouncing back, at one point one does penetrate the shield, and he shouts "that one went through!". Near the end of the conversation, the first boy says something that makes the second stop and stare at him. at this point his last thrown stone bounces back and hits him on the head, knocking him over.

Does this ring any bells for you Britons?

Oh, and as I mentioned upthread, I saw this series on the telly in the '80s, so it can't be newer than that. "Zathura" is the 2005 film with a similar premise.

Wow, I think that's actually it! I googled Crash and turns out it was show on Finnish telly in 1986, which would the right era for me having seen it as a young kid (I turned 7 that year). Thanks a bunch!

The end credits of Destiny to Order, featuring clips from the film, a song (sadly, not "Destiny Rap") and gratuitous shots of the late, lamented Sam the Record Man.

Wow, thanks! So much eighties hair! And I gotta say, Jefferson Mappin and Richardo Keens-Douglas are pretty awesome names.

So wait... if that footage is to be trusted, is it in fact a magic IBM XT and not a typewriter at all!?
