Yay!!

I had a blast! I can't tell you how many times I have seen St. Elmo's Fire. Which is how I knew Jenny Wright.

I always watch and read the credits after ever movie to see the names of the actors/characters.

I'm glad you enjoyed this quiz! I've seen "St. Elmo's Fire" numerous times myself. "Do you believe in pre-marital sax?"

By the way, I also watch the closing credits too. In addition to getting cast/crew info, you never know if there'll be a scene at the end ala "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" or "Adventures in Babysitting".
