Guess the Movie

Last week a friend sent me an intriguing Excel quiz. It contains snapshots from movies with the bodies and faces of the characters removed but everything else in place. You have to guess what movie the image is from based on the background, costumes, and characters’ positions. For example, the image below is from the quiz:

Austin Powers

Yeah baby! No-brainer, right? Some are pretty difficult though. There are 60 scenes and I only got 23 correct, but it was still fun.

Leave a comment and I’ll send you the quiz and/or the answers. (The worksheet is password protected, but I found a utility to unprotect it so I could see the answers.) Enjoy!

P.S. The file properties list “Stephen Royle, updated by Arno de Wever and Gavin Summers” as author and this Web address:
