At least Gregory Smith (“Small Soldiers”) tied to his bed. I think he has a little sister in this movie but most likeley she has a room for her own.

Looks quite interesting but I don’t remember this movie completely.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 4, 2 girls in bibs). For more infos see that entry.

Rating 8 for now. Pic taken from the trailer.

Comment: 2 orphaned brothers Scott Warner and Tom Dayton, about 10 and 16 yo and 2 sisters. I don’t remember if the boys sharing one room or even one bed as they are often together. That are the best bedroom scenes I found some time ago by coincidence.

Completely on YouTube.

Screenplay by Eric Hendershot (who did lots of very good Kids films with handsome boy actors, like Message in a Cell Phone, rating 8).

For this rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: I think Johnny Depp in a wooden bed and maybe Heather Langenkamp in a metal bed. Separate beds and different buildings.

Thanks for this suggestion. I like the 80s and this was one of my favourite horror movies back in the 80s. The one I thought of and previously captured was a different horror movie (Friday 13th part IV, coming soon, older girl, bunk bed).

Some very good slasher scenes also in the bedrooms, but dark lit.

Nowadays I prefer younger actors and as already told siblings and brothers in one room and bunk beds. So that’s why I don’t have tags for women and single girls/teens here.

So rating 4-5 for this one. Typical older teens and typical American bedrooms of the 80s.

There are so many movies showing bedrooms, and I also have 2 other blogs, so I will only post my favourite movies and scenes

Comment: Several boys at a dormitory / hospital. At least 8.

Had been aired some days ago. Very interesting movie, especially the beginning (I can’t remember the rest of the movie) with lot of good scenes, including a zipper accident and a locker room scene after wrestling.

I wonder why I haven’t bought this novel yet. I own “A Prayer for Owen Meany” aka Simon Birch (DVD + novel), bedroom rating 3 and I also like the other Irving based movies and novels (I also own Until I find you).

Starring Robin Williams and Mary Beth Hurt. Nominated for 2 Oscars.

One of my favourite movies back in the 80s. But nowadays there are many more.

Currently rating 6 for bedroom scenes, a bit higher fot the movie. I will update this later.
