Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Luke Benward in the first bedroom, his younger brother, played by Ty Panitz at a different room. Both in wooden beds.

Very good movie and plot. I even own the 1973 novel by Thomas Rockwell. Not sure about the time setting in the movie of this timeless plot, but looks more like the 2000s, definitely not the 70s.

There are some good and funny scenes in this film, lot of different characters but there are more handsome actors in other movies.

Interesting extras on the DVD like how they made the worms. I only remember very few bedroom scenes. Also no or no notable bedroom scenes of Billy’s friends.

So rating 4 for that.

Comment: Luke Baird in this bedroom with a wooden bed. He has a sister in the movie, about the same age, not sure where she slept (maybe in the same room). He was born in 1979 (Canadian as well?), so the movie must be filmed much earlier as he isn’t 15 or 16.

I don’t know/don’t remember this family film. Also on my overalls blog (11 yo girl and other girl in shortalls, rating 7).

I have to check this again later and hope for a soon broadcasting. I like these bedrooms.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Comment: Canadian Cameron Bright in his bedroom and also in the bed of “his wife” (Kidman).

Very interesting movie plot with perfect tighty whities (undressing scene) and bathtub scenes (alone and with Kidman). Is there no Blu-Ray?

Nominated for a Golden Globe and some other Awards and a Young Artist Award nomination for Bright. Quite bad image quality and no real extras.

Movie rating ~8. Bedroom scenes ~5. No siblings.

Comment: Jan Koester (Tommy, pictured in pajamas) and his older brother sharing this bunk bed. Tommy top bunk. Their 23 yo sister Karin has a room for her own, single bed.

I found it some time ago during research and it had been released on DVD not long ago. Tommy wearing shorts, not sure if they are Lederhosen, but I think I will add it to my Lederhosen blog as well.

I don’t know/don’t remember this series but I think I won’t buy it and wait for a TV broadcasting. Typical series of it’s time. Directed by Rolf von Sydow.

Comment: Joshua Cross in the bedroom (pic 2), also he and his older sister (played by Julia Stiles) and their parents in one bed. Also a bed at a hospital.

Some good scenes at the Catholic school (locker room) but it’s not a boarding school. At least I don’t remember dorms there. Good Christian plot, rated PG.

Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, also starring Denis Leary, Dana Delany and Rosie O’Donnell.

For bedroom scenes rating 4-5, movie maybe 6-7. But I don’t like the young main character. I also remember few bedroom scenes.

Comment: Several kids in different episodes. I don’t remember all 74 episodes but I think there also must be brothers in one bedroom. I haven’t found any better pics and have to recheck that. There’s also at least one camp episode (tents ?). And some episodes with 2 sisters. Very funny is ep. s2e17 “Vampire Breath” Brother Freddy and twin sister Cara in a coffin bunk bed (brother in top bunk).

http://goosebumps.wikia.com/wiki/Vampire_Breath

Pics showing ep. s3e5 “Click” and s3e2 “My Best Friend Is Invisible”.

Also of interest episode “Don’t Go to Sleep!” and “My Hairiest Adventure”, but there are bedrooms in most episodes. Some actors are Corey Sevier “Lassie”, Cody Jones, Tyrone Savage “Wind at My Back” and John White. Check my overalls blog (rating 6) for more pics.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also see “Are You Afraid of the Dark ?” (rating 7) and Mostly Ghostly (rating 5).

Rating: 7/10

Comment: 3 or probably more bunk beds in this boys camp cabin.

I like summer camp movies and the 80s but I’m not even 100% sure about the title of this movie. There’s at least one movie with a similar German title (which original title is Camp Cucamonga). But most likeley this is the correct title and the camp is called Camp Kikakee. I have to check both movies the next broadcasting.

Rating 6-7 for now. Meatballs (rating 7) is probably much better.

Comment: Lukas Haas in this bedroom. Episode s1e1 “Ghost Train”.

I don’t remember all episodes and only have 8 episodes on 2 DVDs and some TV recordings.

Very good series, some with farm content (also see my overalls blog). But there are (mystery) series I like more.

No siblings but I also have to check the other episodes. Rating 4-5 for this bedroom.

Update: s1e13 “The Sitter” has 2 brothers and a high sleeper (rating 5).
