Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The movie series in question was about a cocky policeman from Detroit who travels to California to investigate a murder. The first two movies in this series were very successful and funny. The third movie was a train-wreck and not even funny. Which comedy series am I describing?

Answer: Beverly Hills Cop (1984-1994)

Axel Foley, played by Eddie Murphy, was hilarious in parts one and two. Part three of the series wasn't funny at all. It seemed rushed, forced and too much like an action movie. It was directed by John Landis, who admitted the plot was bad. He was depending on Murphy to bail him out; he wasn't able to.
2. The original movie, in my opinion, was one of the funniest sports related movie ever. The sequel, which came out eight years later, was terrible. Only one actor returned for the sequel. Which unnecessary sequel featured the character Ty Webb?

Answer: Caddyshack II (1988)

"Caddyshack" (1980) was a comedy classic. Many people can quote it word for word. It told the story of the goings on at the Bushwood Country Club. Chevy Chase briefly reprised his role as Ty Webb in the sequel. Rodney Dangerfield backed out for personal reasons.

The characters in the sequel, while new in name, were almost exactly like the characters Judge Smails, Al Czervik, Danny Noonan and Carl Spackler from the original.
3. This fantasy movie was based loosely on the 1930s writings of Robert E. Howard. It's a violent and bloody movie. The main character is out for revenge against the killers of his family. It featured swordplay, magic and mysticism. Which movie am I describing? It's sequel was released two years later. It played more camp, less gore and had bad casting.

Answer: Conan the Barbarian (1982)

"Conan the Barbarian" (1982), was a bloody, violent and well shot movie. Its sequel, "Conan the Destroyer" (1984), was a cluttered mess. It lacked a lot of the things that made the first movie great. The violence was toned down to receive a PG rating.

In this movie, Conan is on a quest to save a queen's niece from the dream god, named Dagoth. Some people like this movie but I'm not one of them.
4. "Superman" (1978) and "Superman II" (1980) were very successful films. The third movie released in 1983 played more for laughs and had less action. Lois Lane only appears briefly and Lex Luthor doesn't even appear at all . He's replaced by a character named Ross Webster, a man who wants Superman dead so he can control the world's oil. He has a bumbling computer programmer make a supercomputer to help rid him of Superman. Which comic genius played Gus Gorman in "Superman III" (1983)?

Answer: Richard Pryor

Richard Donner directed the first movie and most of the second movie before being fired. This angered some of the cast, including Gene Hackman (Lex Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane). Richard Lester directed this mess and finished "Superman II", after Donner's firing. Richard Pryor was a famous stand-up comedian and actor who passed away in 1999.

He also starred in about 50 movies including "Stir Crazy", "Silver Streak" and "Bustin' Loose".
5. An independent horror film released in 1978 is one of my favorites. It cost very little money to make but made a killing at the box-office. It spawned a successful sequel in 1981. Both films featured a female heroine and the same killer. Part three in the series had absolutely nothing to do with the first two films and had all new characters. What is the name of this sequel?

Answer: Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

"Halloween" (1978) is considered one of the greatest horror films of all-time. Its sequel was also pretty good. Both films feature Laurie Strode trying to survive attacks by her evil killer brother. Part three in the series had a bizarre plot. A stone from Stonehenge is stolen and cut into little pieces.

These pieces are placed inside Halloween masks. When a special song is played ,their wearers will turn into a slithering mess of snakes. Not scary and not good.
6. In 1994 a very low brow comedy was released. It featured two great actors in the main roles. The story follows the two dim-witted guys and a missing suitcase full of money. The prequel followed nine years later, with a new cast. This movie tells the back story of the two nit-wits. Which clunker of a movie is this?

Answer: Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003)

"Dumb and Dumber"(1994) starred Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels . That definitely helped the movie. "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd"(2003) starred Derek Richardson and Eric Christian Olsen, trying to act like younger versions of Carrey and Bridges. The results were not so good. It basically tells how they met and their high school experience.
7. The original movie in this series is considered one of the scariest movies ever. Its sequel was released four years later and flopped. It featured many of the same characters and actors. Its script was re-written many times and was too different from the original for the public. Which sequel featured biofeedback, locusts and an evil spirit named Pazuzu?

Answer: Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977)

"The Exorcist" (1973) will give you nightmares. Its unnecessary sequel will give you a headache. It featured a convoluted plot and not a lot of real horror. It tells of Regan's life four years after the first film. The plot for this film is a mess. Psychic healing, a doppelganger and locusts, oh my.
8. This movie series started off real well in 1975, with a movie considered to be the first summer blockbuster. A sequel followed three years later and was a success. In 1983, a third film was released in 3D. It was a mild success but was not very good. In 1987, a fourth film in the series was released and it was even worse than part three. Which film series' fourth movie was released with the tag line 'This time it's personal'?

Answer: Jaws (1975-1987)

"Jaws"(1975) was a film that made people afraid to go in the water. Parts three and four of this series made you forget about how good the first film was. Part three of the series takes place at SeaWorld in Florida. "Jaws: The Revenge" returns to Amity Island. This time a brand new shark is out for 'revenge' on Chief Brody's wife.
9. The original movie in this series was a violent science fiction movie. It originally received an X rating before being edited. It featured a crime ridden city and a 'special' police officer trying to stop crime. Which Paul Verhoeven directed film is this? Its sequel followed three years later and was a mess.

Answer: RoboCop (1987)

"RoboCop" was a fun movie to watch, with over the top violence and comedy mixed in. It was submitted to the MPAA 12 times before receiving an R rating. The sequel was plagued by many re-writes and a new director. The violence was front and centre but it lacked focus. Robocop is trying to stop the widespread use of a drug called 'Nuke'.

It also featured a 12 year old boy pushing drugs and cursing like a sailor.
10. 'A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....' Never mind that one, I don't want to aggravate anyone. The movie I'm thinking about is an action movie released in 1994. It had plenty of action, comedy and a great villain. It told the story of a SWAT member trying to stop a public transit vehicle from exploding. Which movie is this? Its sequel followed three years later. This time the action took place on a cruise ship.

Answer: Speed (1994)

"Speed" had a cast that included Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper. It was about a bus with a bomb planted on it by Hopper's character. It must not drop below 50 miles a hour or it will explode. It was a fun summer action movie. Keanu Reeves decided against doing the sequel, after not liking the plot. Sandra Bullock is given a new SWAT member as a boyfriend.

They go on a cruise ship with a madman and bombs also. It was very, very bad movie that shouldn't have been made.
