Robert Downey Jr. Was In That? Quiz

Jason and I had our first date night as parents on Saturday night and we went and saw Due Date.  Jason liked it more that I did, but it had its moments.  I am always charmed by Downey and I’ve listed his characters in the order that I like his movies best with a hint (these are only the movies I’ve seen).  Can you identify the movie?  Leave a comment telling me the # and the name of the movie.  No Googling or looking at other commenter’s answers – that’s cheating and no fun!  Play once or every week.  It only takes one correct answer to be eligible for a prize.  You have until Thursday night to submit your answers.

 Each answer worth 5.5 points, with 6.5 points for the bonus question.

  10. OK, well, I am pretty much boycotting this quiz because I do not see Julian from Less Than Zero on here and that was one of his best performances – even for a now dated 80’s movie. C’mon Stacy! Rent that one will ya? I obviously haven’t watched many of his movies since I know very few of these:
    1 = Tropic Thunder
    5 = Iron Man movies
    6 = Sherlock Holmes (thanks for the layup!)
    9 = Due Date
    15 = Back To School
    Bonus = Ally McBeal

    • 27.5 ponts! Less Than Zero has been added to my list. I should spend more time actually watching these movies than I do in keeping the list up to date!

      CORRECTION!! 34 points! Thanks for coming back to check on me. When there is a baby on my lap mistakes are bound to happen!
