I don't expect anyone to guess this one, but I'm posting it anyway. I think it's a wonderful film. If anyone has seen it, they should guess it from this screen shot.



Just to make it clear, he's cannonballing off a diving board. I should also add that he's a fairly well known character actor from movies and TV.

Would that be Whale Music? I saw it and remember the plot, but it took me a while to recognize Maury Chaykin (if that's who it is...)

Although I had no idea what the movie was, that looks like really good spot for photography. Cali coast somewhere, anybody know?

You know your Gwyneth! At least from certain angles.

A Perfect Murder is a cold-blooded remake of Dial M For Murder. My wife likes it, which is unusual because there are no really appealing characters. She won't watch the original. I think she just likes seeing Michael Douglas get his just desserts.

Well the pic you posted is a pretty good look for her, hard to forget. smile.gif

Yeah the movie was pretty uninspiring. I would usually watch anything with Michael Douglass though.
