    Searching for old movie name

    Hello everyone,

    i have been searching for a name of an olf sci-fi movie and thougth may be you would remember it, i so it ten or more yers ago, so it is really old, but as i remember it mas interesting. I try to discrime some plot and if you know tell me, or ar least tel me if you know some good place i could find it i tries IMDB and couldnt find it there.

    So about the movie:
    It is sci-fi, where someone find a way to travel to a parallel world, so he goes to this other world and I remember this very vividly: he goes and the street look the same, but all people ar dreased same in suits and there is this paper seling box where in real world you put a quarter and it opens and you can take a paper, but in that world it is free. Also there ar standing car for public use, they all are white and i think hydregem powered. He invites i think his friends to go to that world, one is fat.
    As they live there in that world the fat guy is being pursuite becausi he is fat, but he cant loose weight so he is sent in to the woods in to some cabin where theris nothing but hidde gun with one bullet :], there he find other fat people, but this is in the end, where this parallel world traveling machien gets destroyd.
    One of the guys twin in alternative world is dead so he meats his wife (i think, or girlfriend) she is happy, and i remeber when she sais to him somthink like "do you want to make love" and he is confues, becouse he is not used to that in real world it is not so simple and direct.
    And in the end this traveling machiene is destroyde because it was kept in old house which was demolished so some got stuck in that world.

    Well i am sure it is not "sliders".

    So if anyone has any idea please help :].
    Thanks a lot!

    I wish I could help you. There have been several shows with that kind of story line used. Sliders, Dr Who, Star Trek (org) & TNG, and Twilight zone just to name a few. Sorry I have no idea.

    Hi, its like it doesn't exist, I think from my childhood my memories are mixed up, but I am sure about that it was a move not a show, so non of you suggested are possible.

    May be you have any idea where I could look for? Like a scifi movie database or something?

    I'm sorry I couldn't help you but here's an idea I've used in the past...
    My Direct TV carrier, Dish 1 Up, (800-dish1up) has been helpful to me in finding out information on shows/ movies I wanted to find out about. Maybe they could help you. I remember this one time I called I was looking for an old Gene Kelly movie, but I couldn't remember the name of it. After a little research they were able to get it for me. I'm not saying that they can do it every. single time, but who knows. You would be no worse off than you are right now. Hope that helps.

    Great, now I've got to track down a copy of this! :p

    I just checked NetFlix and they don't have it. eBay has a copy up. For $7.44, I picked up a copy... :D
