What about that "home movie" you stole from your father?  Why don't you just wrap it up and label it "From: Santa"?

Okay, see if anyone has any idea what this one is.

I have a vague memory of a Christmas movie I saw on TV as a child. There was a scene in it where a boy wakes up at night, only to find a glow coming from outside his bedroom window. He opens the curtains and Santa's reindeer are all there.

I have no idea what it is. For years I thought it was "........ Saves Christmas" It's no Ernest. And it's not "The Boy Who---" either. I just suffered through that on netflix thinking it was, but nope. Thought it may possibly be "Flight of The Reindeer," but a search on imdb said nada.

This ring a bell with anyone? It's driving me mad just trying to figure out what it was.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

You're certain it's a little boy?
There's always Prancer (which was on TV the other night).
Whether or not it has a scene similar to that, I'm not sure.

A good place to get questions like this answered in the main IMDB board - usually it's a very fast moving board and any time I've posted asking about a film it's been answered pretty quickly.

This is the one movie I've never been able to find, and I don't remember anything about it except one scene: A man is eating in a restaurant, and there's a pool on the roof, which sinks down into the middle of the restaurant and has glass on all sides so patrons can see into it like an aquarium. A woman up top strips naked and goes swimming in the pool, oblivious (?) that the guests eating dinner downstairs can see her.

I think that's what happened. Saw this probably twenty years ago. Any ideas?

No idea where you'd begin, but this might be a start:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?keywords=swimming-pool&release_date=,1993&title_type=feature

That is, if the keyword swimming pool was used for this movie.

Figure it out?
I seem to be picturing a movie where someone goes in a house, maybe to a party, and you can see someone swimming overhead in water. You only see a hallway width of a pool above with a clear bottom that people below can see through.

I think that's a scene from The Killing (Season 1 or 2), at the rich libertarian guy's house.

Never did find it. What you're picturing is possible? I just don't have enough to go on to be able to track it down.

A shark in an (indoor) public swimming pool attacking people. It breaks through a vent or something to get in there.

Anyone have any ideas where this is from? I'm sure I didn't make it up. Thought maybe it was from Jaws or one of the sequels, but after reading the plot of each I don't think it was. Maybe a cheap knock-off instead then? Anyone have any ideas?

No fucking idea, probably American. When I think back on it I imagine it being the vibe of a Blake Edwards movie like The Party or S.O.B.

I'm convinced I've seen a scene like that from a more recent film. I even remember the tables at the restaurant. But maybe it was an aquarium, and there was a person swimming in there incidentally. It was either from a gangster or spy movie, or a comedy. But the aquarium/pool didn't "sink down" into the restaurant; it went all the way to the floor.

The closest thing I can think of was the scene from the opening of Leonard: Part 6, but that was an outdoor pool, it only attacked one person, and it was a trained assassin rainbow trout. It's literally the only scene I remember from that movie.

Apparently there's also an episode of CSI with a shark attack in a swimming pool: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1640833/

Are you thinking of Mission: Impossible?
