Here’s this week’s film quiz, with 30 questions on topics such as Oscar acceptance speeches, supervillains’ cats, and movies whose titles rhyme.
Similar to our disclaimer the other week, our lawyers tell us we’ve never heard of SM:TV Live or this “Wonky Donkey” segment, whatever that is. Anyway, in the latest edition of your friendly movie quiz, we’ve got some questions about movies whose titles (more or less) rhyme. So, we hope you’re up to speed with the Deuce Bigelow cinematic universe.
Once you’ve completed all 30 questions, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. And remember when you get to Round 2, as Declan Donnelly once screamed for some reason or other, “IT’S GOTTA RHYME, MAN”…
