I've never watched more than bits and pieces of it. Way to be all clique-y and exclude me. :(

8/20

I've seen the fucker about 4 times as well. :oops:
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Half. I've seen it several times, but not for over 10 years.

I've seen it at least 100 times. It's probably my second favorite movie (behind Dr. Strangelove). I will admit that a couple were lucky guesses, like how many times they say fuck in the movie.

I love that Canadians can't participate in this game.

Also, my innocence was robbed when Kevin Costner won Best Director for Dances With Wolves over Scorcese for Goodfellas.

I missed two, including the first question. I coulda swore Ray Liotta was the first name in the opening credits.

I got 8. I thought Space Nuts was the one where Micheal Jordan plays basketball with Buggs Bunny.

9/12 as well. Wishful thinking on my part that more of those were smutty.

8/12. I would have gotten 9 of 12, but it turns out Wizards only got a PG. I thought it was one of those Bakshi ones that got rated worse than it deserved.

Also, I spent a long time staring at Private Gladiator before guessing wrong.
