9/10. I hit The Jerk button but then it came up I hit animal house. I hate when that happens. Anyone else have that happen?
Yep! I try and be real careful now...

Nine out of 10. I flubbed the Rocky one because Apollo Creed was in I and II.
I did see "Star Trek, the Motion Picture" when it first aired on HBO, and the only thing I didn't like about it was the blah uniforms.

9/10 -- Missed "10." I went with "Arthur" even though I first thought it was "10." Argh!

You had to know it was "10", when you saw Bo Derek on the beach. She was not in "Arthur".

5/10; I did very poorly on this one. I am not much of a movie fan and only saw about half of those.
