Comment: An interesting messy bedroom in s8e11. A blue wooden bunk bed with matching shelves. Maybe selfmade by Tim Allen. As Randy (pictured) was out of home for a long time and just came for a Christmas visit, I think this is the room of Brad,17 yo and Marc, 14 yo. Randy had to clean up this room.

I had this ready prepared some months ago, so now finally this update.

Of course I prefer the earlier episodes with the younger 3 brothers (separate beds, often Brad as the oldest had his own room. Randy once moved to the cellar).

Please also note my entries on my overalls blog (boys, girls, men, women).

I don’t have much messy bedrooms and I like bunk beds. But this is a brief scene and I think studio setting and nothing much to see.

Comment:
Julien (Erwan Baynaud, on the right) I think has no siblings and his parents are divorced. He is also shown in a different bedroom (more a childish bedroom). This is maybe the bedroom of his mother? He and his friend just undressing for kick boxing (shirtless in underwear and oiled). They are lying in this single bed as well. I remember also a brief bathtub scene (Julien only).

Very good movie. I like French movies (but I prefer historic settings). His friend is more handsome.

Deleted on YouTube but I have a TV recording somewhere. There are also other interesting episodes of this series (another entry coming soon, orphans including a bunk bed).

For bedroom scenes rating 6-7. No siblings and single beds only. The movie itself rating about 7.

Comment:
Some younger and older (teen) girls and boys in different very colorful bedrooms. Kids are from about 6 (girl) to 15 yo.

From my bib overalls blog (rating 5).

Interesting series for younger kids but I didn’t pay much attention for the bedrooms. First I thought that there are 2 in pic 1 from a different angle, but thats a bench or similar. Maybe there’s another bed in the room? But at least there are different rooms for boys. Probably single beds and separate rooms? At least one girl has a younger sister. Not sure if they sharing one room.

Also starring Jeremy Miller (“Growing Pains”), but I think in one episode only (and probably not showing his bedroom).

I have to recheck more episodes. There is also a sequel series.

Rating 4-5 for now. For more infos see my other blog.

Comment:
Several girls (orphans) in different beds and rooms throughout 6 seasons and some movies. There are standard beds as well as this rare bunk bed in pic 2 which looks very integrated and featuring pink curtains. Probably on the right is another one. Pic is from episode 136. Typical girls’ colors. I only remember integrated beds and curtains in 19th century movies. Of course not so colorful.

First pic from episode 97 showing a teen boys’ (?) room with a grey bunk bed. Also an interesting colorful room.

Probably there are much more other bedrooms (also of grown ups). I don’t have the time to check more than 1000 episodes but I think mainly girls are shown.

Rare and interesting beds but rating 3 for now only.

Also on my overalls blog (rating 3, boys, girl, woman).

Update: I forgot one scene in ep1: 6 separate beds and 2 bunk beds, makes 10 girls in one room. Mainly grey color.

Comment:
The twin brothers, played by Christian and Jospeph Cousins sharing this modern 90s bedroom. Wooden parallel beds and blue sheets, pillows, pictures and curtains.

Not bad and a funny movie but I think rather few bedroom scenes. I remember 2 short scenes only and can’t remember showing them in their beds.

Also some few other interesting scenes (on boy and a man in bib overalls, rating 2 on my other blog), also pajamas and shirtless in boardshorts.

Boys are quite young (although looking a bit older here), modern, too modern room, and few scenes.

So rating 4-5 only, but I have to recheck it the next broadcasting.

Comment:
Laurent St-Pierre (Steve Gendron, left bed) and his older film brother Olivier (Émile Proulx-Cloutier) sharing this bedroom in the middle of the movie. At least one more scene later, probably the same bedroom. I don’t remember seeing bedrooms of others like Maxime Collin, but have to recheck the complete movie. Steve Gendrom was 10 or 11 yo in 1993 but looking much younger here like 7 or 8.

I have checked my HD recorder and this is one of the few movies I still have completely on my hard disc. Very good movie, at least the first half including school scenes and a peeing scene. Handsome boy actors like Maxime Collin.

The second half is set outside and more the Pirate movie. I also have seen the sequel which is much worse.

Typical good Canadian movies from director Roger Cantin (“Contes pour tous” series, also see my overalls blog for that).

Rating 6-7 for this bedroom scene, rating 8-9 for other scenes and actors.

Comment:
Looks like Trenton Knight (left) and film cousin Justin Berfield sharing one bed. Pic taken from the trailer.

I’m prettey sure, that I have seen this movie, but can’t remember it and have to recheck it completetly the next broadcasting (same for the prequel).

Also starring Dee Wallace. Not to be confused with Invisible Mom 2 (1998). There is also a good movie called Invisible Dad (good actors but I don’t rememebr good bedroom scenes in there).

Obviously a temporary bedroom. Could be much better. No brothers anyway but at least sharing one bed.

Rating 3 for now. Maybe movie or other scenes a bit better.

Comment:
6 beds at angled postion in a round dorm at a pioneer camp. Handsome shirtless boys.

I had to clean up my hard disc and found again this very interesting movie. (I previously had some pics but didn’t remembered the title of the movie).

20 minutes. Awarded movie. Russian title “Ничего страшного”. English title “There Is Nothing to Be Scared of” referring to storys the boys tell each other. 1991 novel “Blue Lantern” by famous Victor Pelewin. Directed by Ulyana Shilkina.

I don’t remember the complete movie and unfortunately I still don’t understand Russian, but I remember a very good movie. Maybe there are 2 boys in one bed as well?

Very interesting bedroom and  bed constellation.

Rating 10. I have to check that again.

Comment:
I think Caitlin Barrett (on left) and her older film brother Ross Malinger sharing this wooden bedroom. Looks like a cabin. Few furniture and props. Beds close to each other.

I don’t remember this complete movie and have to recheck. I think much more famous and more often shown in Germany is the sequel (starring Taran Noah Smith). Also a teen girl in bib overalls (soon on my other blog rating 6). Maybe more bedrooms of the teens or parents shown.

Probably a very good family film. And an interesting bedroom scene.

Rating 6 for now.
