I Need Help Finding An Old Movie...?

Postby Garran » Sat Sep 16, 2017 11:05 am


I'm Looking for a movie that I don't know the name of, I only remember a few scenes and the general story line, I am pretty certain that the movie starred Wallace Shawn, the actor who was made famous in the movie The Princess Bride for his portrayal of the Sicilian criminal genius, Vizzini, who had a penchant for shouting the word ?inconceivable.?

His biggest scene in the Princess Bride was where he faced Westley and told him to ?never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line?

Anyway, before I get completely off point, the movie I am looking for from what I can recall is about a high-school or collage age kid who somehow gets himself involved with this character (the one I think was played by Wallace Shawn) who is spearheading some sort of computer controlled simulation of a car. The car doesn't move/drive its stationary and is in a dark room like a garage. The kid participating in this simulation watches the roadway on a big screen TV that is in front of the stationary car.

I forgot the purpose of this whole experiment but I know that they would actually crash the cars, I think it had something to do with collecting insurance money for the wrecked/totaled cars,

I'm not sure if this was the reason or not but whatever the reason was that they where doing this was sinister and to commit fraud.

The Kid catches on to the fact that he is being used as someone else's patsy and also that someone else had already been murdered in one of these crash simulations,

anyways, he escapes the facility and a chase ensues, at one point when the kid thinks they are about to catch him he quickly grabs this girl by the arm who is a complete stranger to him and kisses her, after the coast is clear and there is no more sign of an immediate danger he stops kissing her (she's about the same age as him) and she's completely love struck and twitter-pated, as he walks away she utters the words "Thank you! You want my number? it's 555-5555.

I think during this whole scene of the movie it was lightly raining and the kid who's on the run was wearing a yellow rain coat, I think in addition to grabbing and kissing this complete stranger he also has an umbrella or she does and they sort of hide behind it as an aid to the diversion he is trying to create, I think all of this took place out in front of a zoo or theme park of some sort which is also where part of this whole chase takes place.

I think the kid was played by Johnny Lee Miller but I'm not sure about that.

I have been unable to find this movie even after extensive searching.

You may be thinking of a movie called The Double O Kid.
It stars Wallace Shawn and Corey Haim.
There are plenty of videos on Youtube that show clips of this movie so you can check it out.
