    I need some help from the movie gurus. I have been given the task of creating 10 movie trivia questions for our company Christmas Party this weekend. I want to be able to make it relatively easy for the average person to participate. I'd prefer that the questions be in regards to the movies from the mid 80's and up. Can anyone help me out here? I can probably come up with the questions myself, but I really want to have a good mix of great questions. Some of the information of read here in the past indicates the wealth of info you all have.

    Bring em on!!

    You could do two sets of questions, one set of average difficulty and one difficult set. After the average questions are answered, you can ask if anyone wants to try their luck with the difficult questions. If there's some cocky co-worker you'd like to humiliate, this is a way to do it tactfully...Happy Holidays!

    Chris,
    Good question on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.
    I guarantee a bunch of people would say Blazing Saddles on that one.

    Chris, I think more people know where the line "Badgers, we don't need no stinkin badgers" comes from than the line that inspired it. But in that case, there are plenty of amazingly quotable lines from UHF

    "You gotta grab life by the lips and YANK as hard as you can"

    "Stuupid, you so stuupid."

    R.J. Fletcher: This is an embarrassment. A disgrace. What do you think R.J. Fletcher Senior would be saying if he were alive today?
    Richard Fletcher: "Help me out of this box, I can't breathe in here! Help, let me out!"

    But I think one of the all time great questions is:
    Q: Who played Alex, the suicide victim, in The Big Chill, and what movie did Lawrence Kasden cast him in as a favor for cutting the actor's scenes out?
    A: Kevin Costner, who was later cast in Silverado.
