Friday Funday Trivia: Movie Titles, In Other Words


Instead of photos, this quiz features literal translations of the titles of 15 films. You have to correctly identify them.  In parentheses after each literal translation is the year the film was released in the U.S.

For example: The sixth day of the week (1995)= Friday

Along with the "movie titles in other words", there are 3 bonus questions as well totaling 10 pts. 

If you are a Friday Funday Trivia virgin about to be touched for the very first time, please read the following rules before playing:

* The game is pub style so looking up the answers, using friends/family/co-workers, etc. for help,  is not allowed.

If you are the only player to correctly identify a photo/photoset, you earn 5 bonus points. The first player to submit their finalanswers to me will earn 2 bonus points.

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to no later than Sunday night (7/21) at 11:59 PM EST. The answers will be posted on Monday, July 22nd.

Not an official rule: If you have no clue, feel free to come up with an intentionally funny answer. Although you won't get credit for a correct answer, you'll get a thumbs up from me for originality, execution, and showmanship. What can I say, I love to be entertained and I'll take it any way I can get it!

Have fun and good luck!
