Road Trip Quiz – guessing closed

It’s Thanksgiving week and many of us will be heading somewhere else to celebrate and since it’s been a while since I’ve done a movie quiz, here it is.  See if you can figure out these road trip movies.

You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling! The person with the most points this round will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.

Answers to last week’s Bite Me quiz here. Leaderboard here.

1. One of my all-time favorite movies starring Steve Martin and John Candy takes place as they try to get home for Thanksgiving.  Planes, Trains & Automobiles

2.”The first relevant film about rock and roll and the music industry, the first film that lets you in on the secret.”  –Robert Wilonsky, Dallas Observer  Almost Famous

3. Charlie: Listen… Ray, I don’t know if I’m gonna have a chance to talk to you again. Because you see, these… Dr. Bruner really likes you a lot, and he’s probably gonna take you back. You know?
Raymond: Yeah.
Charlie: What I said about being on the road with you I meant. Connecting. I like having you for my brother.
Raymond: I’m an excellent driver.
Charlie: [smiling] Yes, you are. I like having you for my big brother.
Raymond: C-H-A-R-L-I-E. C-H-A-R-L-I-E. Main man.

Rain Man

4.  Vacation

5. “Sarandon and Davis give superb, wonderfully interactive performances: funky, fierce, funny and poignant.” –Newsweek  Thelma & Louise

6. This 1934 classic starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert won 5 Academy Awards and is a must see for lovers of screwball comedies.  It Happened One Night

7. Traveling across the country to lose your virginity seemed desparate to me, but it worked out in the end for John Cusack in this 1985 romantic comedy.  The Sure Thing

8.  (sigh)  Lord of the Rings trilogy

9. “A family determined to get their young daughter into the finals of a beauty pageant take a cross-country trip in their VW bus.” –IMDb.com  Little Miss Sunshine

10. “Someday it was inevitable that a great film would come along, utilizing the motorcycle genre, the same way the great Westerns suddenly made everyone realize they were a legitimate American art form.”  –Roger Ebert   Easy Rider
