This entry is part 10 of 25 in the series Parse & Javascript

    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>


    <div style='display:none' class='error'>
        <h1>objectid not found</h1>

    <div style='display:none' class='success'>
        <h1>Successfully found the objectid</h1>

    Parse.initialize('5d3sro43zBGj8AMYqWND5bFYMzAan7f5P5euZm7M', 'hlRZZqAylA7Fmah4Kk6ma8WK7QCT4cHrxjafnnkI');
    var MovieObject = Parse.Object.extend('MovieObject');
    var movieObject = new MovieObject();

    var query = new Parse.Query(MovieObject);
    query.get('KpM9EZvArG', {
        success: function (movieObject) {
        error: function (movieObject, error) {
