2. What term is used for the film industry in Mumbai, India?

Answer: Bollywood

Bollywood is often wrongly used to refer to the whole of India's film industry, while it actually just refers to films made in Mumbai. The name consists of Mumbai's former name Bombay and Hollywood. I've made up the other three expressions.

3. The 2013 film "Captain Phillips", starring Tom Hanks in the title role, is a true story about an American cargo ship captain taken hostage by pirates around the Horn of Africa. The pirates were from which of the following places?

Answer: Somalia

"Captain Phillips" is based on the 2010 narrative "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea", written by Captain Richard Phillips of the harrowing 2009 incident in which Somali pirates are shown leaving Mogadishu by boat and attempting to return to Mogadishu with either their hostage or $10 million in ransom.

The film received numerous accolades and was nominated for six Academy Awards, but did not win any category. The film is noteworthy for recruiting native born Somalis to play the pirates. Most noteworthy is Barkhad Abdi as the pirate captain Abduwali Muse. Abdi, who was born in Mogadishu and later emigrated to Minneapolis, gave a riveting performance in this, his first professional acting job, and was the winner of the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.

The real life Muse was eventually sentenced to 33 years in prison for the hijacking of the ship, the Maersk Alabama.

4. What do the motion pictures "Scared Stiff" (1953), "The Fog" (1980), and "The Sixth Sense" (1999) have in common?

Answer: ghosts

"Scared Stiff" was the ninth of the seventeen movies made by Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. In it, they visit a haunted castle off the coast of Cuba and see ghosts and zombies. This was Carmen Miranda's last picture before she died in 1955.

"The Fog" was a horror film directed by John Carpenter. It starred Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh and Hal Holbrook. It is the story of fog which engulfs a California coastal town and brings with it the ghosts of sailors who drowned in a shipwreck a century before. The church depicted as the cure of Father Malone (Hal Holbrook) is the Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Sierra Madre.

M. Night Shyamalan was propelled into the big leagues of film making by "The Sixth Sense". He, Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment and Toni Collette were nominated for all manner of awards for this production. It is the story of a boy who can see and converse with dead people. Haley Joel Osment's line "I see dead people" became a trope and made it into "The Urban Dictionary".

5. Written by and starring Adam Carolla, what boxing movie's title is a play on words to showcase his former life as a carpenter before starting to act in and write movies?

Answer: The Hammer

"The Hammer" was a semi-autobiographical tale of a perennial loser who was content in his life to be an amateur boxer and menial laborer, until he heard of a local radio broadcaster needing to be trained for a boxing match.

The story mimics Carolla's own life in that he found future co-star Jimmy Kimmel under very similar circumstances.

7. In which movie did Felix and Oscar get arrested for illegally transporting illegal aliens into California from Mexico?

Answer: The Odd Couple 2

In "The Odd Couple 2" Felix and Oscar were trying to find the town where Felix's daughter was going to marry Oscar's son. They pulled over, and Felix discovered Oscar lost the road map and had left Felix's luggage at the airport. Felix hit the car with his fists, and it rolled off the road, down a hill, turned over and exploded.

A Mexican driver driving a truck pulled over to give them a ride. On the road the driver met a friend who told him something, and the driver told Felix and Oscar to go on without him while he went in the opposite direction with his friend. Felix continued driving until they were stopped at a police road block. Police escorted illegal aliens out of the back of the truck who had been hiding behind the peaches, and arrested Felix and Oscar for transporting illegal aliens.
