Quiz! Answers Just to let you all the know the winner on that last quiz was Vicki by virtue of being the only entrant and making me laugh. She's now the proud owner of a shiny 'feeling listless' soundtrack. For those who are curious, here are the answers:

(1) "An American President", "Wall Street", "Hot Shots Part Deux"
"An American President" – the only in which Charlie doesn’t appear with his dad Martin.

(2) "Star Trek VI", "Austin Power I", "Superman II"
"Superman II" – Christian Slater isn’t there in a cameo

(3) "Mystic Pizza", "Hook", "Ocean's Eleven"
“Hook” – the only Julia Roberts film here in which Matt Damon doesn’t put in an appearance (yes, he is in "Mystic Pizza" – he’s the kid brother of the rich guy Julia is dating and appears in that excruciating dinner sequence)

(4) "The Sixth Sense", "This is Spinal Tap", "The Usual Suspects", "Jerry Maguire"
“The is Spinal Tap” is the debut film for a director. Nights first film was “Wide Awake”; Bryan Singer directed “Public Access”; Cameron Crowe directed “Say Anything”.

(5) "She's All That", "Children of the Corn III", "My Stepmother is an Alien", "Can't Hardly Wait"
”She's All That" is only one to feature a cameo from a Buffy actor after they appeared in the series – Sarah Michelle Gellar appeared because her of her boyfriend and that fact Buffy was being filmed at the same school). Nicholas (Xander) Brandon was in "Children of the Corn III"; Alison (Willow) Hanningan was in "My Stepmother is an Alien"; Amber (Tara) Benson was in "Can't Hardly Wait"

(6) "Coming to America", "Scream 3", "Out of Sight", "Hannibal"
”Hannibal” is the only direct sequel – all the other feature cameos from characters originated in completely different films. Randolph and Mortimer from ‘Trading Places’ turn up in ‘Coming To America’; Jay and Silent Bob are in ‘Scream 3’. Ray Nicolette from ‘Jackie Brown’ is J-Lo’s boyfriend in ‘Out of Sight’

(7) "Mallrats", "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", "The Empire Strikes Back"
“Empire” is the only non-prequel

(8) "Sliding Doors", "Shakespeare in Love", "Seven", "Emma"
“Seven” is the only one to feature Gwyneth Paltrow with her own accent.

All of the following have two answers. A point for each:

(9) "Sixteen Candles", "Pretty in Pink", "The Breakfast Club"

“Pretty In Pink” is only one not to be directed by John Hughes. It’s also bereft of Anthony Michael Hall.

(10) "French Kiss", "The Big Chill", "A Fish Called Wanda", "I Love You To Death"
“The Big Chill” – Kevin Kline has a moustache in all the others. “A Fish Called Wanda” is the only one not directed by Lawrence Kasden.

And to make up the fifteen points ... who said -- "Have Fun. Stay single." I want the actor, his character, the name of the film ...
Campbell Scott, Steve Dunn, ‘Singles’

It’s just occurred to me how hard that was. I think I may have seen too many films. I’ll try and cook up something a bit easier next time…
