Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which 80's movie combines: "Rawhide", John Belushi, and a Mission From God?

Answer: The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers started off as a "Saturday Night Live" skit and turned into one of the greatest comedies of the 1980s. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi starred as Elwood and Jake Blues, two criminals who broke out of jail to earn money to save the orphanage they grew up in.

They described their quest as a "mission from God". Along the way, they impersonated the Good Ol' Boys and performed "Rawhide" at a Country-western Bar.
2. In what film would you hear "Tiny Dancer", see Kate Hudson, and ride a bus with an aspiring "Rolling Stone" writer?

Answer: Almost Famous

"Almost Famous" was directed by Cameron Crowe. The story revolved around a high school boy getting the chance to follow around an up and coming rock band in the 70s. On a side note, Cameron Crowe married Nancy Wilson of the rock group, Heart in 1986.
3. Joaquin Phoenix sang "Ring Of Fire" in what Oscar nominated film that told the story an Arkansas farmer becoming a Nashville superstar?

Answer: Walk The Line

Also starring Oscar nominated actress, Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash, "Walk The Line" told the story of Johnny Cash's career from his humble beginnings on a cotton farm. Cutting his first record at Sun Records, marrying June, his battles with drugs and alcohol, and his legendary concert at San Quentin Prison were all depicted in the film. Reese Witherspoon won her first Oscar in 2005 for her dramatic portrayal of Johnny's wife and her role in turning his life around.
4. Name the movie (which has been described as a mockumentary) featuring the song "Big Bottom". Michael McKean starred in the film and the most famous quote was "Turn the volume up to 11".

Answer: This Is Spinal Tap

An unforgettable music parody movie directed by Rob Reiner ("All In The Family"). Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Christopher Guest portrayed a Heavy Metal rock band named Spinal Tap. The film was presented as a behind the scenes chronicle of an English rock band embarking on an disastrous American tour.

The drama unfolded with promoters, groupies, undersold venues, and turmoil within the band. The dry humor takes a couple viewings to soak it all in.
5. Terrence Howard is rapping "Hard To Be A Pimp" in what 2000's film which chronicled a dream to get out of the Memphis Hood and become a rap music mogul?

Answer: Hustle & Flow

"Hustle & Flow" came out in 2005, the movie starred Terrence Howard (as DJay) and Taraji P. Henson (Shug). After years of making money on the streets selling drugs and running a prostitution ring, DJay dreams of making it big legitimately in the music world. Using his life as the backdrop of his storytelling, DJay created a rap persona, hired his girls to sing backup, and recorded songs hoping to get signed by a major label. "Hard To Be A Pimp" from the "Hustle & Flow" soundtrack won an Oscar for Best Song From A Motion Picture for the 3-6 Mafia.
6. "Gangsta Gangsta" not only topped the rap charts, it was a big hit song in what N.W.A. inspired film that starred O'Shea Jackson?

Answer: Straight Outta Compton

"Straight Outta Compton" brought to life the rising career of N.W.A., one of the founding Gangsta Rap groups and a 2016 inductee into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. We're introduced to the back story behind each band member joining the group: Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and MC Ren. Adding extra authenticity to the script, Ice Cube's real life son, O'Shea Jackson, portrayed him in this 2015 movie.

The Academy Awards were denounced and boycotted by many groups this year as no black actors were nominated for an award and "Straight Outta Compton", a critically acclaimed film was snubbed for all major awards.
7. Do you remember the film where The Bellas vied for the acapella singing championship? Here's a hint, Actress Anna Kendrick sang an impromptu version of "Cups" in the movie.

Answer: Pitch Perfect

"Pitch Perfect" came out in 2012 and kick-started the career for actresses Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson. The girls' group, The Bellas, had to battle the other Barden University fraternities including the heavily favored boys' ensemble. Anna's song, "Cups", was performed using the sound of plastic cups for the beat and became a popular event to copy on social media in 2012.
8. In what film would you see Beyonce', hear the song "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going", and learn the fictional story of the Ultimate Girl Group from their start in the 60s and the next two decades of their career?

Answer: Dreamgirls

"Dreamgirls" is the movie interpretation of the Broadway favorite which borrowed a lot of its storyline from the career of Diana Ross and The Supremes. Three young girls in the 1960s form a group called the Dreamettes and get discovered by a Cadillac salesman, played by Jamie Foxx, who wanted to break in the music buisness. Before long, they were an opening act for a major entertainer and became his backup singers.

The girls' dream was becoming a reality. Their manager changed their musical style, they renamed the band to The Dreams and moved Deena into the spotlight as the new lead singer. Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Effie in "Dreamgirls".
9. Which actor/rapper played a character nicknamed Rabbit in the film "8 Mile"? Set in his native hometown, Detroit, the filmed opened with the song, "Lose Yourself", and ended with a thrilling rap battle.

Answer: Eminem

Eminem not only starred in "8 Mile", he won an Oscar for Best Song ("Lose Yourself"). Jimmy Smith Jr (AKA Rabbit) was living in a trailer park and the movie opened with his first unsuccessful rap battle at a local club. The film chronicled his growth in confidence not only as a battle rapper, but in life, as he tried to better his life and his little sister's.

The semi-autobiographical story chronicled a week in Rabbit's life where we witnessed his battle with nerves, met the late Brittany Murphy as his new girlfriend and Kim Basinger, who played Rabbit's mom.
10. Remember when Robbie and Julia fell in love? Drew Barrymore was serving drinks while "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" was being sung in the background of what classic comedy?

Answer: The Wedding Singer

Adam Sandler played the lead character in "The Wedding Singer". After being dumped at the altar at his own wedding, what could be worse than working as a wedding singer? Sandler played the role of Robby who fell in love with a waitress named Julia at one of the wedding receptions.

The only problem was that Julia wass about to be married to another man. The comedy was set in the 1980s. Keep a look out for 80's rocker, Billy Idol, who made a special cameo as Robbie attempted to win Julia's heart. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have teamed up multiple times since this film including "50 First Dates" and "Blended".
