After all the snow-shoveling many of us have been doing lately, I figured we could do with a bit of fun, so I’m hosting another movie quiz.

Just like the last time, I’m going to give you the answers before you even start. All you have to do is match those answers to the corresponding clues, but be warned, you’ll have to think literally, laterally (and perhaps even squint a bit) to stand a chance of scoring 100%. 

Here’s an example of how to match the clue to the movie title.
 
CLUE: Our planet is not a French egg.

ANSWER: The World is Not Enough

What sick, twisted logic brings us to that conclusion?

Well, I’m glad you asked. The French for ‘an egg’ is ‘un oeuf’ which gives you: ‘Our planet is not un oeuf.’ From there, you change ‘Our planet’ to ‘The World’ and Bob’s your uncle, you’ve found the matching movie title. 

I've set out the clues in the form of a poll. The correct answer to each clue matches one of the movie titles listed beneath the poll - I’ve muddied the waters a little by throwing in a few superfluous titles. All you have to do is match the clues to their corresponding movies by putting the titles in the relevant text boxes.

Please note: Once you click on the ‘Submit poll’ button, you won’t be able to go back and change/add any answers. 

You'll need an LJ account to take part,
but they're free).



Poll #1674160 Each clue refers to one of the thirty movies listed below. Copy and paste your answer into each text box
This poll is closed.

1: They break your spirits.

2: One wind-up fruit, of a color that’s hard to rhyme with.

3: A taxi’s cheer.

4: Zee unschooled Londoner might think this is French for “horse.”

5: You’d get this if Sir Lancelot went to see the Phantom.

6: Rise up against ‘the man’ for no particular reason.

7: Stay hidden and get sewing.

8: Not a lot of people know that Maurice Micklewhite led this revolt.

9: What you would call the fear of Atilla and two of his pals.

10: Unusual lobes on the sides of the locomotive.

11: The woman who marries the one they call ‘The doctor’ would be known as this.

12: In London they tell you smoking’s bad for your [ _____ ].

13: What Abraham Lincoln would be, if he started on a new book today.

14: At the time of posting, we’d be talking about this coming Monday.

15: When looking for Tolkein’s ‘Ranger from the north’ on Yahoo, bad spellers often find this instead.

16: Parents hope their kids do this at college.

17: A hirsute golf club, together with the smell from the burning bird.

18: The people who marked the calendar before anybody knew about it.

19: Echoing birds from Jamaica, as far from the earth’s beginning as they can get.

20: ‘Which person put this jolly bunny in the picture?’



101 DALMATIONS; 300; A CLOCKWORK ORANGE; CABARET;
THE CAINE MUTINY; THE DA VINCI CODE; THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW;
ELF; ERAGON; GET SMART; GHOST BUSTERS; GHOST RIDER; GIGI;

REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE; ROBIN HOOD;  
STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE; STRANGERS ON A TRAIN;
THE TIME TRAVELLER’S WIFE; TWILIGHT;WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?
 


  
The first person to ‘vote’ all twenty questions correctly gets a copy of my Fur-Face CD. I'll give a second copy to a random contestant who also gets 100% correct (if anyone manages to get them all right, that is. Mwaahaahaar!).   
 
This quiz closes on February 5th at 5:00pm (Eastern/US). I’ll announce the winners and provide the correct answers the following day.
 
Have fun!

Much as I thrill to the challenge of bloodthirsty good-natured competition,
I think I've won enough already.

I couldn't get one of them (I just blindly guessed!). :/ Darn you for throwing in extra titles! I did groan aloud when I got a lot of them. Very punny...

Groans and puns belong together, don't you think? :)

Ack, I got quite a few of them without even having to check the clues and felt all smug... and then couldn't get the rest. Sigh. Fun though!

Residents of a fishing community come upon hard times by the fact that the sea-birds quite brazenly stole the catches right off the boats and out of the nets, and searched desperately for a solution. Late one afternoon a father berated his clumsy son for spilling yellow paint all over the transom of their family boat. Too late in the day to clean it up, they set out to sea the next morning to the jeers of neighbors regarding their 'yellow aft-parts.' To everyone's astonishment, this boat proved the only one returning that day with their entire catch; not a single sea-bird bothered them.

By morning the next day, not a single stern remained untoned...


And yes, I tossed my hat into the ring.

That was fun! Well, mostly. Some were quite easy, others really made me think ... 3 made me laugh once I figured it out. Well, if I figured it out. Not sure about 4, 9, 12 and 18, just wild guesses I think ...

I think I did okay . . . except #4. Not sure that one is right. We'll see. =)

Okay, after thinking about #4 and the guess I made, I think I may have gotten it right after all . . . at least it works in my mind. LOL
