HELP looking for a thriller movie and cant find the name
« on: September 13, 2017, 11:14:53 AM »
I am trying to recognize what is the name of the movie I can't remember anything besides the plot:

A young guy is so happy he has his dream car. he gets back home, park the car and when he steps out, a big truck comes splashing water and hitting his car and the guy gets so upset his dream car is destroyed. all of a sudden a guy with a suit appears with a brand new amazing car and hands him the keys. the young guy is wondering why is he doing that so he is explaining to him that one time he needed help and someone did him a favor and now he is paying it back and he is telling the guy that one day he will have to return a favor. then the movie becomes a thriller-criminal movie

That's it. right now wanna kill myself I will do anything to find what movie that was.

Thanks a lot!!!

Pay it Forward  That was the clip in the initial trailer (below).  Haley Joel Osment, Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfW0wCV9iFI  53 seconds is the clip you're referring to.

BTW, the rest of the movie is not a thriller/criminal movie.   :lol

BTW, the rest of the movie has little to do with this scene.

It's not pay it forward but i would say it's the thriller-mystery version of it

No idea then... perhaps your mixing memories of different movies?

It must be one of those various other movies that has a scene in the rain of a truck destroying a guy's car, then a stranger in a suit hands him the keys to a new car and tells him to pay it forward.  :lol

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

It reminded me a tiny bit of Interstate 60, but that was Gary Oldman's bike ran over by a truck after Michael J Fox open's the car door, the more I think about it, it is nothing like it, but it is a great film!  :laugh:

Rereading what you wrote, it really does sound exactly like Pay it Forward .. type opening scene in google and exactly what comes up is what you describe.
Then I was thinking Mr. Destiny with James Belushi, but his car only stalls then it goes in another direction, there is no car given....

Approx. year?
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?
