Default Chapter 2: Adding Arrays

I am on pg 70-72 of Beginning PHP5, Apache, MySQL Web Development and when I use the link from movie1.php to moviesite.php i get an error message

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_IF in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\moviesite.php on line 29

This is my coding:

moviesite.php

<?php
session_start();

//check to see if user has logged on with a valid password
if ($_SESSION['authuser'] != 1) {
  echo "Sorry you don't have permission to view this page, you loser!";
  exit();
}
?>
<html>
<head>
<title>My Movie Site - <?php echo $_REQUEST['favmovie']; ?></title>
</head>
<body>
<?php include "header.php"; ?>
<?php
$favmovies = array("Life of Brian",
                   "Stripes",
                   "Office Space",
                   "The Holy Grail",
                   "Matrix",
                   "Terminator",
                    "Star Wars",
                   "Close Encounters of the Third Kind",
                   "Sixteen Candles",
                   "Caddyshack",)


if (isset($_REQUEST['favmovie'])) {
  echo "Welcome to our site, ";
  echo $_SESSION['username'];
  echo "! <br>";
  echo "My favourite movie is ";
  echo $_REQUEST['favmovie'];
  echo "<br>";
  $movierate = 5;
  echo "My movie rating for this movie is: ";
  echo $movierate;
} else {
  echo "My top 10 movies are:<br>";

  if (isset($_REQUEST['sorted'])) {
    sort($favmovies);
}
foreach ($favmovies as $currentvalue) {
  echo $currentvalue;
  echo "<br>\n";
 }
}
?>
</body>
</html>





movie1.php


<?php
session_start();
$_SESSION['username'] = $_POST['user'];
$_SESSION['userpass'] = $_POST['pass'];
$_SESSION['authuser'] = 0;

//check username and password information
if(($_SESSION['username'] == 'Joe') and
   ($_SESSION['userpass'] == '12345')) {
  $_SESSION['authuser'] = 1;
} else {
  echo "Sorry, but you don't have permission to view this page, you loser!";
  exit();
}
?>
<html>
<head>
<title>Find My Favorite Movie</title>
</head>
<body>
<?php include "header.php"; ?>
<?php
  $myfavmovie = urlencode("The Life of Brian");
  echo "<a href='moviesite.php?favmovie=$myfavmovie'>";
  echo "Click here to see more information about my favorite movie!";
  echo "</a>";
  echo "<br>";
  echo "<a href='moviesite.php'>";
  echo "Click here to see my top 10 movies.";
  echo "</a>";
  echo "<br>";
  echo "<a href='moviesite.php?sorted=true'>";
  echo "Click here to see my top 10 movies, sorted alphabetically.";
  echo "</a>";
?>
</body>
</html>

The parse error is due to the comma (,) in the line:
                   "Caddyshack",)

I hope this helps.

I have removed the comma in th "Caddyshack",) line but still have a parse error.

Thanks for the post but it doesn't seem to have fixed the problem

I did not notice it earlier. A semicolon (;) is missing at the end of the line.
    "Caddyshack")
