The one after Scream is Forrest Gump.

I think the one you have labeled Scarecrow is actually Leatherface.

The one you have listed as Psycho is Rosemary's Baby.

You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

the girl in red next to Darth Vader is probably (Run) Lola (Run)

I'm being nit-picky, but the Beatles figures are from A Hard Day's Night.  It's the suits.  And your Fifth Element guess is my guess for Run Lola Run.

Still, you got a lot more than I would have though, Hmof.

They give you a list of the movies at the link; you have to ID the characters by name.

Oy. Right. Is Fifth Element on the list? No. So it's gotta be Lola.

And yeah, cookie, they didn't wear the suits in "Help" - duh!

I suppose we could figure out the Marx Bros movie from their outfits, too. But I'd bet that James Bond is generic.

So who's the girl in red next to Vader and the Cowardly Lion? Hmm.

Scarface was Tony Montana, I think?  Never seen it.

I think cookie's right about Amelie.

Holly Golightly.

It's still not Mother.  :happy:

I accidentally double-clicked on the picture when I meant to click to enlarge it, and it showed me the answers.  I couldn't have gotten very many anyway.

The answers . . . contain many misspellings.  Bizarrely many.
