1980’s Made for TV movie about twin girls being reunited

I was wondering if anybody knows what movie this is? The movie was filmed sometime in the late 80’s and I think it was made for TV. I was on either, ABC, CBS, NBC or was a network channel like Lifetime or USA. I saw it on TV sometime between 1988 and 1991. I only saw maybe the last half hour of it the most. Basically the movie was about these identical twin girls that are between 18 and 22 years of age and they are white with dark brown hair. They come to find out in a flashback scene why they were separated. In the flashback which takes place when they were around 4, 5 or 6 years old and it shows there being a heavy downpour which might have even been a mild hurricane and them ridding in a sedan or station wagon with there mother. There mother swerves and hits a guardrail and as a result the right rear door comes open and one of the girls is ejected from the car and ends up in a raging river down bellow. The mother jumps in to save the girl who was thrown into the river from the wreck and she manages to get her out with the help of a middle aged lady who I think might have been Hispanic. After the girl is saved the woman acts like she is going to help the mother out of the river and she offers her a branch which she then pulls back on and lets go and it hits her in the head and she is knocked out and swept down river and drowns. Shortly after the flashback the girl who had been living with the Hispanic lady who took her as her own daughter confronts her about it and gets her to go out to the bridge with her where she murdered her mother. They climb down by the river which is real calm compared to that afternoon over a decade earlier and her sister was waiting there and was standing on the bridge looking down at them. The Hispanic lady sees her and has a mental breakdown. Shortly later they show her in a mental hospital sitting on her bed there and holding a doll. And the sisters talk with a doctor about her condition and whats going to happen to her and shortly later the movie ends. I was only a few years old when I saw it and it was on prime time TV and my parents stopped at it and we watched the last half of it. Anybody who has any idea what movie it was please let me know. The movie came to mind when I was walking around the parking lot at the Veterans Affairs clinic in Youngstown, Ohio I work security at since it was raining real heavy and there was a tornado warning an hour earlier that day so all that I guess made me think of the movie. Oh and I think another clue two is that the movie might have taken place in Florida because there might have been some Palm Trees in the flashback.

80’r or early 90’s horror movie or sci-fi movie

Sometime back in the 90’s when I was watching TV around prime time with my parents we were flipping through channels and my Dad stopped at either HBO or Cinemax and there was a movie starting where it showed several US Army or US Marines going through some field on a sunny afternoon and there was either real tall grass or corn growing high and they stopped dead in there tracks when they saw a remote controlled model plane that was flying around them and then they crossed paths with this cyborg I think and it was wearing camouflage clothing just like they were wearing and I think it was real freaking looking where it had solid black eyeballs or something and you could tell it wasn’t a real man. A few seconds later a blade of some sort maybe a curricular saw blade came out of it and a second or two later it was covered in there blood. Right after that one of those guys wakes up in bed and it was just a nightmare. My mother told my Dad to change the channel so I never did get to see more than that. Anybody know what movie that is that starts out like that?

90’s Mafia Comedy

There was a movie I saw on HBO or Cinemax back in the late 90’s where this young black man I think in either Chicago or New York City had the Italian Mob after him and he made himself up to look like a white guy and ended up becoming a member of the mob. It had some funny scenes in it like him telling this one wiseguy about his pistol and he knew nothing about guns and made up some off the wall caliber that was in the triple digits and the real wiseguy said something about that must be real powerful and asked him what the recoil is like and the black guy didn’t know what he meant and said it was “self coiling”. Another funny part is he is in the restroom and another black man rambles to him about it being a white mans world and the guy drones on and on while he is putting his disguise on and by the time he is finished he walks out of the restroom all made up in his white persona. Another scene he is at a urinal taking a piss and the guy next to him looks down and in shock sees his penis is not white like the rest of him. The final scene I remember is he is in some sort of auditorium at the end and a hitman tries to shoot him from a catwalk and the police arrest him before he can do it. Anybody have any idea what this funny movie was called. Please let me know.

War games Comedy

There was a movie I remember seeing the end of on HBO in the late 80’s that was an 80’s movie about some people who were having a war games event in a wooded area in the US. They were not Army or Marines just some random civilians wanting to play army. It wasn’t paintball or anything but I think they had it as gender segregated teams. Men on one side and women on the other.  And it went on for two days or something. Everyone had on Model 1981 Woodland Camouflage (the old pattern that replaced plain olive drab utility uniforms before digital came along in the 2000’s) and the old 40’s through early 80’s steel pot helmets. I remember at the end of it everyone decides they want to forfeit the game and the leader of the men gets upset and says something like “Common everyone don’t leave this is war!” the leader of the women walking up to him and saying something like “You want war? I’ll give you war.” and does a judo move on him and flips him onto a table and breaks the table knocking him out. The movie ends a few seconds later and shows clips from the film and shows that that guy was a chef when he wasn’t playing war games and of course everyone else and it saying who the actors and actresses were with the clips of them on the screen. I remember the song that was playing at the end with the clips was the song “Wooly Bully”

80’s Movie where guys are fighting on top of a van?

Does anybody know the name of the 1980’s movie where at the end the main character is fighting a little guy with a black and white striped shirt and a black beret on top of a van traveling down a freeway? When they are fighting the main guy almost throws the little guy he is fighting off of the speeding van and the little guy begs for his life and the main guy gives in and doesn’t throw him off and then the little guy reveals he tricked him and he hits him and then pulls out some weird type of stun gun with a big electrical current traveling between the two ends he is holding in both hands and I think the little guy gets knocked off of the roof when an overpass comes up or something like that and eventually the main guy makes out ok and is back with the main girl. The end shows them together and he says “She likes me” breaking the forth wall and the credits then rolling. Anybody know what the hell movie that is? I am dying to see it.
