Comment: Obviously 2 brothers sharing a bed. Also a dorm at an boarding school  shown. Girls in a (different but very similar) dorm.  There are 5 siblings, 3 boys and 2 girls in the main family. Nice underwear and I think swim scenes.

Also 2 older boys and a man in one bed in the first movie Five Little Peppers and How they Grew.

I first found the PD novels by Margaret Sidney. Also on my bib overalls blog (little girl). and soon on my Pigtails blog.

Next to Tommy Bond there’s also (older) Ronald Sinclair starring.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: 2 twin brothers, 10 yo Lukas and Elias Schwarz sharing this white, wooden bunk bed. Also sometimes both in one bunk. Also shown a single white bed (mom ?).

Quite interesting. But I somehow I don’t like this actors. Also other scenes of interest like sharing a bathtub.

Rating ~6-(7). English title: Goodnight Mommy.

Comment:
Brad Stoll (1977-1997) and younger film brother played by Mike Damus sharing one bed /sheets, but it’s obviously rather a couch. Set in 1942.

Still quite intersting but could be better. Also nice clothes, pajamas and pants with suspenders.

Maybe also other beds shown (grown-ups).

Rating 4-5.

Comment:
Johnny Whitaker (on left) and younger Scott C. Kolden (probably brothers in the series) obviously sharing this room with a wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e8. Scott in green underwear (walking, sitting and rear view). Also a good bedroom scene in s1e12. I don’t know all episodes, but I noticed only very few scenes. So I don’t know who has which bunk.

I don’t like Whitaker, but Kolden is very handsome. Although I don’t like the 70s. I found this by coincidence during research for my Pigtails blog (Pamelyn Ferdin, this series coming soon there.)

There’s also a 2016 remake, but I haven’t checked that one, yet.

Rating 7-8.

Comment:
By coincidence, I found this pic, of an unknown episode (YouTube title 10 Social issues Presented in Full House). Obviously a later episode (early 90s, maybe around season 6?). At least 2 sisters sharing this room on the 2nd floor. Obviously in the first half of the series DJ, pictured and Stephanie). In season 1, each girl has a room for her own. Later DJ and Michelle sharing this room.

In season 5, 2 toddler boys Nicky and Alex sharing one room in the attic

In one episode, DJ wants a room for her own and in one episode Jesse got this room. In Fuller House, there are 2 older boys Jackson and Max sharing this room.

More details about the rooms here

Good series but a bit annoying. Also previously on my overalls blog (f,m rating 4). For the bedrooms rating 4 as well. Studio location anyway.

Comment: Elijah Wood as Mike (on left) and younger Joseph Mazzello sharing a room with a wooden bunk bed on the left. Set in 1969. Also Joseph Mazzello later in a hospital bed (at 1h08) and also both in a large bed (of their mom? at 1h08). Pic at 49 minutes. Mazzello also climbing up the upper bunk. Bed and room only /mainly partially shown. I haven’t found better scenes of the room. Nice pajamas, but boys are quite young.

Also recently updated on my overalls blog, rating 6.

Comment: 2 boys (Zacharay Bennett as Felix, pic 1 and I think older Joel Blake or less likeley Miklos Perlus) sharing one bed on the right and 2 young girls in the same room sharing the left bed. One is probably Cecily, not sure if the other girl is Felicity or Sara, as I think there’s a 3rd girl later, probably Sara climbing through the window from outside.

Pics from s1e13. On pic 2 one girl is alone in one bed. The setting later changed to Montreal (pic 2 ?). Are these the same wallpapers or do they swith to Avonlea? Sorry, I missed some parts and only checked it briefly.

The 2 boys are hard to notice in the dark, (Felix on the right side behind the older boy, briefly shown). I think all are siblings except main character Sara, who I think is a cousin, visiting her aunt. Not sure where she slept. Maybe in the same room and even 3 in 1 bed?

I don’t know all episode, so needs to be rechecked more carefully, especially the later seasons. Also recently updated on my bib overalls and sailor suit blogs.

For the bedrooms at least rating 6-7. Great series. Currently on Bibel TV.

Comment: 2 brothers (identical twins), played by Niek and Freek Verstraaten, almost 12 yo with red curly hair first sharing one bed. Also later with one black girl (Lotje ?) in the middle. Later, they had to separate and sleep in different beds (same room with one separation wall). But the boy in the left bed then visited the other boy. Pics from todays s2e2 (“Unzertrennlich”, “Op avontuur”?).  There’s also a little sister who got their room.

IMdb says it’s a 2015 short film. But it’s a series. Wunschliste says series 2017-. But 2015 for this is obviously correct according arte. No entry on either Dutch nor German Wikipedia. VPRO production. “zappbios”.

I don’t like the boys, but nice plot and room. They ran away.

Coming soon: Road to Avonlea. 2 brothers and 2 sisters each sharing a bed (s1e13, same room), 1900s setting. Also recently updated on my overalls blog.

Matinee (1993)

Comey film by Joe Dante. John Goodman, Omri Katz
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1962
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Gene ~16, Dennis ~8 ?, others
Kind of beds: separate bed, singles
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Britain Simon Fenton as Gene (pic 1, sitting on left/upper bed, scene near the beginning) sharing a 1960s room with his younger film brother Dennis (Jesse Lee Soffer). Pic 2 showing Omri Katz phoning with a girl (both in separate rooms).

Very interesting movie set in 1962. I found it after finding Jesse Zeigler in North (1994), see my bib overalls and Western blogs. Nice 60s haircuts, clothes and props. But few and brief scenes.

I like this movie. Although Simon Fenton (and Omri Katz) are looking quite old and the other boy quite young.

Also soon on my Western blog (Dennis), rating ~5-6.

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Harry ~7, Jeremy ~13 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Not sure, but obviously Asher Metchik (left bed, pictured on bottom) and older brother (also in real life) Aaron Michael Metchik (also shirtless) sharing this room. Anna Chlumsky (“My Girl”), their film sister probably sleeps in a separate room.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 3.

Quite large and colorful room. Wooden beds. Good, but typical 90s movie. But I think rather few good bedroom scenes. And Asher is very young.

So rating ~5-6 for now only. Aka The Mommy Market.
