When I was fact checking this quiz, I went to the "Sweet Home Alabama" movie website. The brief synopsis of the movie referred to Andrew as Andrew McDonnell. Under the character bios, he was listed as Andrew Hennings. In the movie, he was referred to as Andrew Hennings. I'm sure that has been fixed.
