9. Joe Pesci plays Leo Getz in "Lethal Weapon 2", "Lethal Weapon 3" and "Lethal Weapon 4". Which of these movies does he NOT appear in?

Answer: Home Alone 3

He appeared in "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2". Although "Raging Bull" (1980) was not his film debut it is the one that first got him noticed. After a few misfires he received a reasonable success with "Once Upon A Time In America" (1984). The following year, Pesci's career got back on track with "Lethal Weapon 2" (1989), in which he provided scene-stealing comic relief as a fast-talking gregarious accountant on the run after embezzling from the mob. Pesci enhanced his fame and won a Supporting Actor Oscar with an explosively violent yet often humorous portrayal of a mobster in Scorsese's "GoodFellas" (1990). Later that year, he successfully moved to slapstick comedy to play a bungling burglar victimized by a resourceful Macaulay Culkin in the surprise blockbuster, "Home Alone".

His notable credits include a controversial character turn in Oliver Stone's "JFK" (1991). The starring role of an amateurish lawyer who learns on the job in the popular comedy "My Cousin Vinny" (1992) and reprising his characters in two profitable sequels, "Lethal Weapon 3" and "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" (both 1992).

He also starred as a crime photographer in the 40s period movie "The Public Eye" (1992). Also as an unemployed actor turned crime-fighting activist in failed social satire "Jimmy Hollywood" (1994) and as a wily yet good-hearted homeless man who teaches some life lessons to a group of Harvard undergrads in "With Honors" (also 1994). He re-teamed with De Niro and Scorsese for "Casino" (1995).

12. Rene Russo starred as Lorna Cole In "Lethal Weapon 3". Which of these movies did she appear in?

Answer: All Of These

The gorgeous Rene Russo began acting in the 1980's with her first role the TV series "Sable". Rene's first motion picture role was in the comedy "Major League" (1989) as a librarian reluctant to rekindle a romance with Tom Berenger. She plays the wife of James Belushi in "Mr. Destiny" (1990), and again a wife in "One Good Cop" (1990) starring Michael Keaton .

She starred in "Freejack" (1992) with Emilio Estevez and her big break came as the Detective/love interest Lorna Cole in "Lethal Weapon 3" (1992).

She followed the "Lethal Weapon 3" detective role with that of a Secret Service agent and romantic interest with Clint Eastwood in the film "In The Line Of Fire" (1993). "Outbreak" with Dustin Hoffman(1995), a comedic turn in "Get Shorty" (1996) with John Travolta, and "Tin Cup"(1996) with Kevin Costner soon filled up her resume.
13. Damon Hines played Nick Murtaugh in "Lethal Weapon 3". Did he appear in the all of the "Lethal Weapon" movies from 1 through to 4?

Answer: Yes

There aren't many movies that I can think of that boast an original cast through a set of movies. Mel Gibson - Martin Riggs, Danny Glover - Roger Murtaugh, Darlene Love - Trish Murtaugh, Traci Wolfe - Rianne Murtaugh, Stephen Kahan - Capt. Ed Murphy, Mary Ellen Trainor - Psychologist/Stephanie Woods, Ebonie Smith - Carrie Murtaugh and lastly Damon Hines - Nick Murtaugh.

Some of his acting credits include "Soul Talkin'" (2000) "Once Upon a Time... When We Were Colored" (1996) "Lethal Weapon 3" (1992), "Lethal Weapon 2" (1989) and of course "Lethal Weapon" (1987).
14. Stuart Wilson played Jack Travis the main bad guy in "Lethal Weapon 3". Which of these movies did he NOT appear in?

Answer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

15. As well as being paired in "Lethal Weapon 3" and "Lethal Weapon 4" Rene Russo and Mel Gibson also starred as man and wife in which 1996 movie?

To get their boy back, they agree to deliver a multi-million dollar ransom to the kidnappers. But after the exchange erupts in a hail of gunfire, Gibson takes one final risk to ensure his child's safety and goes on national television with a shocking proposal. It's a gamble that could cost him his marriage, as well as the life of his son!

He is considered one of the biggest stars in Hong Kong today, and definitely one of the top action stars in Hollywood.

He has won the praises of critics and thousands of fans with the movie, immediately winning him movie offers from different producers.

Answer: Lethal Weapon 4

In my collection "Lethal Weapon 4" has a running time of 121 mins approx. "Lethal Weapon" has a running time of 113 mins approx (Directors cut version which is longer than the original movie).

Answer: False

I couldn't believe it myself. 'The Three Stooges' were mentioned as a favorite of Martin Riggs in the first three "Lethal Weapon" movies but there is no mention in "Lethal Weapon 4". The 'Marx Brothers' are mentioned in "Lethal Weapon 4".
23. In "Lethal Weapon 2", "Lethal Weapon 3" and "Lethal Weapon 4" Leo Getz, played by Joe Pesci, gets cheated by a variety of people and places. Which of these was a topic in which he claimed to get cheated or as he so eloquently put it "Screwed"?

Answer: All Of These

Watching Leo Getz rant and rave are some of the most memorable scenes in each of the movies. The drive-through scene appeared in "Lethal Weapon 2" and he raved about not getting what he ordered and not finding out about it until after he had driven away.

The hospital scene appeared in "Lethal Weapon 3" and Leo had an animated conversation with Lee Butters, played by Chris Roc, in 'Lethal Weapon 4'about mobile phones.

Answer: Twilight Zone - The Movie

The 1983 version of "Twilight Zone - The Movie" actually had four directors, Steven Spielberg, John Landis, Joe Dante and George Miller. Richard Donner did direct a few "Twilight Zone" episodes in the series of the same name. One of the most memorable episodes he directed was cited by many fans as the all-time best "Twilight Zone" episode. "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" featured a great performance by its star William Shatner.

While traveling through rough weather on a passenger plane, former mental patient Bob Wilson (Shatner) peers out of his window and sees a hideous gremlin balanced on the plane's wing. Doubting his own sanity, Bob tries to convince himself that he is merely hallucinating and then the gremlin begins to tear the wing apart. An absolute classic!
