That night, it is revealed that Jon is propsing to marry his girlfriend, Liz (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Garfield (voice of Bill Murray) finds a turkey at the dinner table and eats completely, while Jon is about to propose but was unable to find the ring (because Garfield took it). Liz tells Jon that she’s been asked to represent at London and is flying tonight. After Liz leaves, Jon is fully sad that he couldn’t make his proposal to Liz and she’s flying to London. Then suddenly, Jon then decides to go to London.

The next day, Garfield and Odie are sent to a vet so Jon can go to London, but they escape into Jon’s bag and head to London (without Jon knowing). Meanwhile, Prince has just been named the new owner of the castle, while a man named Lord Dugous (Billy Connolly) thought he was the rightful owner. So to hopefully have himself named as the owner, he puts Prince in a basket and throws him into the river which leads to London. Jon arrives at his apartment and then Liz comes in, Jon was just about to propose when Garfield and Odie come out of the bag.

The film ends when the animals come and they, Garfield and Prince party.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

  • Writers: Stage play, Richard O Brien, Screenplay, Richard O Brien, Jim Sharman
  • Genres: Comedy, Musical
  • Actors: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Richard O Brien, Patricia Quinn, Nell Campbell, Meat Loaf

The story, narrated by a criminologist, is that of a newly engaged young couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, who find themselves lost and with a flat tire on a cold and rainy night. Seeking a phone with which to call for help, the two knock on the door of a nearby castle, which they find is inhabited by strange and outlandish people who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention. They watch, still wet from the rain, as the Transylvanians dance the Time Warp, the film’s signature song.

They are soon swept into the world of Dr. Frank N. Furter, a bizarre and self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania” and his servants, brother and sister Riff-Raff and Magenta, as well as a groupie Columbia and an ensemble of convention attendees.

Frank claims to have discovered the “secret to life itself” and in a scene inspired by the classic Frankenstein movies, his creation Rocky Horror is brought to life. The ensuing celebration is interrupted by Eddie, an ex-delivery boy, who rides out of a deep freeze on a motorcycle and performs a rock-and-roll number. In a jealous rage, Frank corners and slaughters him with an ice axe.

Rocky and the guests are served dinner, which they soon realize has been prepared from Eddie’s remains. Janet runs screaming into Rocky’s arms, and is chased through the halls of the castle by Frank and the rest following behind. Janet, Brad, Dr. Scott, Rocky, and Columbia all meet in Frank’s lab, where Frank captures them with the Medusa Transducer, a machine which transforms them into living statues, and then forces them to perform in a cabaret-style floor show. The performance is interrupted by the appearance of Riff-Raff and Magenta, who stage a coup and announce their plan to return to the planet Transsexual. After explaining to Frank that he is not going back with them, they use a laser to kill him, and in the process also kill Columbia and Rocky. They release the remaining earthlings — Brad, Janet and Dr. Scott — warning them to get off the property; after they do so, the entire castle takes off into space to return to the planet of Transsexual, in the galaxy of Transylvania.

Home Alone 2 Lost in New York

  • Directors: Chris Columbus
  • Producers: John Hughes
  • Writers: John Hughes
  • Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Crime, Family
  • Actors: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, Catherine O Hara, John Heard, Tim Curry

Macaulay Culkin stars as Kevin McCallister, who is once again separated from his family during one of their Christmas travels (following the first film). This time, his family plans a trip to Miami, Florida. At O’Hare International Airport, Kevin loses sight of his family while replacing the batteries in his Talkboy (taking his father’s bag in the process). He then boards a flight to LaGuardia Airport in New York City, after accidentally following a man who is wearing the same coat as his father. While in New York, he decides to make the most of, as he puts it, “the greatest excitement of my life”.

While Kevin did not make it to Miami, his luggage did. Kevin’s bag is pulled off the carousel and passed down the line to his cousin, Fuller, who realizes that Kevin did not embark on the flight to Miami. Kevin’s bag is returned to the front of the line to his mother and father (Kate and Peter McCallister), causing Kate to faint. The Miami Airport security staff decides to call O’Hare International Airport, in hopes that Kevin is still in the airport.

The McCallisters are then trying to figure out where Kevin could be since he is not at O’Hare Airport. After being asked to see a photo of their son, Peter realizes that Kevin has his wallet and therefore can be tracked if he uses Peter’s credit card (which he has, to no one’s knowledge).

The next morning, Christmas Day, Mr. Duncan (the owner of Duncan’s Toy Chest) sends a whole truckload of presents to Kevin and his family at the Plaza Hotel as a reward for Kevin getting the thieves arrested. Kevin sees the two turtledoves. He goes to see the “pigeon lady” in Central Park, gives her one of the turtledoves, and reaffirms his promise to be her friend. Then they hug. At the same time, the bellboy (Rob Schneider) comes to the McCallisters’ hotel room with Kevin’s room service bill. Buzz looks at the bill and says, “Merry Christmas, indeed.” Then he sees that they charged a rather high total of $967.43 on the food Kevin had purchased before, causing Kevin’s father to get mad and scream loud enough that Kevin hears this from the park: “Kevin! You spent $967 on room service?!” This causes Kevin to run back to the hotel.
