This is one way to waste a good deal of time on a Comp USA catalog. I probably won't be buying these notebooks, monitors, or flat-screen televisions anytime soon, but I am very curious as to which recent movies the frames were taken from. Here are pieces from last month's and this month's catalog. I apologize that all of these shots were taken on a cell phone camera. That was out of convenience, but if necessary I can scan at high resolution. If you can identify any of these movies, please post here or let me know.

The set of parrots is the mascot for ViewSonic. So, not a movie (or impossible to identify).

http://www.princeton.edu/~jdonald/crappy_movies/0723081420c.jpg is Over the Hedge. And yeah, the picture above that one is probably from the same movie.

I think the "gray car" you mentioned is a Scion xB, modified. Still might be useful information :)

The quality makes it hard to tell, but if the adult in that picture is Adam Sandler, then I would agree.

The adult turns out to be Scarlet Johansson in The Nanny Diaries, a film based on the novel of the same name. There are eight movies left to be identified. Big thanks to erokky, moozooh, Kyrsimys, Warp, jspecakord, and others for the help so far.

I think the girl talking on the phone (after Over the Hedge) might be Kate Hudson.

The first one is Hot Rod http://www.smartcine.com/hot_rod_review.html Haven't seen it myself, though the trailer seemed kind of funny... anybody seen it? Edit: Oh, and the third one is http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=bratz%20movie&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi Looks like some quality cinema there :S

First one is Hot Rod. It's a funny movie. I didn't recognize any others though.

Thanks alden for identifying Bratz. Also thanks jspecakord for the Kate Hudson tip, as I found a matching bookshelf at 0:47 in the trailer for My Best Friend's Girl. Six more to go (well, until I add more movie stills). I've reorganized the list so that the unidentified ones are at the top. Update: Cloverfield

Three years later these are easier to resolve. We just had to wait for technology to catch up, or at least come into more wide usage. The Google Goggles feature of the Google iPhone app was quick to identify The Eye, A Mighty Heart, and Bank Job. I'm not too surprised that none of us were able to identify the obscure frame of Alessandro Nivola in The Eye.

What an amusing topic. So many movies, and all shitty ones! I've been racking my brain thinking of the last, unidentified picture. That blonde with the curly hair seems oddly familiar, somehow...

I could be totally off but it seems that the girl to the right in that last picture could be a young Jennifer Aniston. Hard to tell from all the blur.

In the first picture, the girl on the left looks like Julia Roberts, though what movie this is, well... your guess is a good as mine, but it is a start.

I had all sorts of thoughts about what movie it could be, but they don't fit the clues hanzou mentioned. Notice the movies he mentioned surrounding that ad as well as all the other films he was wondering about. They're all from 2005-2007, which makes sense, since these ads want to feature recent movies (topic originally posted in 2007), not older ones.

Blondie reminds me of Jessica Simpson. Might be from Dukes of Hazzard? Or it could have been from that Ricky Bobby movie... Talladega Nights. I remember there was a few blonde girls in there. Remember, these clips could be from trailers, which often feature clips that are not even present in the movie.

Hah! I know the last one! Tineye reverse image search to the rescue. It's from the movie Stop-loss, just like another one of your pictures. You can see the corresponding screen cap here: http://www.latinoreview.com/film-previews/images/stop-loss/658/15502/8/movie
