This may or may not help, but try deleting iMovie's preference file. If open, close iMovie then in Finder navigate to the file named "com.apple.iMovie8.plist" in your User (Home) folder Library>Preferences. Drag this file to the Trash. When next opened iMovie will create a fresh file with the default settings. You may need to change some settings to suit your own preference. To do this, in iMovie's Menu go to iMovie>Preferences and make appropriate changes in each of the tabs.
Deleting the preference file can often fix problems with iMovie. The file can become corrupted in some circumstances, such as when iMovie quits unexpectedly.
See this Apple article for more on iLife Troubleshooting Basics (includes a reference to deleting the preference file): http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3249
NOTE: If you are in fact using iMovie '11 (version 9), the preference file is named "com.apple.iMovieApp.plist".
