Wednesdays Movie Mashup No. 50

Okay, I honestly can't believe today is Thursday.  I don't know how it happened.  I'm really sorry James had to wait a whole extra day to be declared the winner of last week's contest.  Oh, and did you notice this was the 50th?  So I'll put up 5 to try to make up for the oversight - I'm feeling creative today.  

Last week's clue: New Clue: A woman becomes engaged to someone in a coma when she saves his life and a prince battles to save the girl of his dreams from a maleficent force.  

Answer: While You Were Sleeping Beauty

Leader board
Hatter - 20
Rachel - 8
Dylan, James - 5
David, Nick - 3
Red - 2 
Sebastian, Andrew, Andy, Keith - 1

1.  A guy breaks away from his rich upbringing to work on an oil rig while his girl attempts to put together a meal using all the apartments in her building to cook it.  

2.  A NYC cop learns that there really are little green men who become schizophrenic lesbian ballerinas. 

3. A little boy sees dead people who have to decide whether to marry for love or security

4.  A young man meets the girl of his dreams at a funeral where a couple of older couples spend their time rehashing their marriages and contemplating adultery.

5.  A girl pretends to be her twin brother so she can play soccer while an assassin tries to protect a little girl from Mexican kidnappers.

The goal is to figure out the two movies who overlap in some words creating a new movie described by the clue.  Leave your answer in the comments. Good luck!   Also, just to encourage participation - if you guess one, don't guess the others.  Thanks.

Well done all! Particularly Dylan. Google?

No Google! The only flicks for the first half that came to mind were Garden State and Elizabethtown, but the former didn't work cause of the plot; haven't seen the second, but I just figured it out.
