    • I’ve seen 7 of them so would have got a similar score probably. I was really disappointed with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. And in case you were wondering, I’ve never had the hairstyle from the second photo haha.

  1. Wow I totally forgot Ben is in Reality Bites! I quite like that one. Haven’t seen The Secret Life of Walter Mitty yet, but might give it a rent one of these days.

    • I’m a big fan of James Thurber, the guy who wrote the story it’s based on, but the film did underwhelm me a bit. Would be super curious what you thought. I’ve never seen Reality Bites. I need to get round to it.

  2. Scrolled past the answers, promise! Tougher than I thought. Here’s my answers –

    1. The Cable Guy (guess)
    2. There’s Something About Mary (guess)
    3. No idea
    4. Along Came Polly (guess)
    5. Meet the Parents (certain!)
    6. Zoolander (certain!)
    7. The Royal Tenenbaums (certain!)
    8. Dodgeball (certain!)
    9. Starsky and Hutch (certain!)
    10. Night at the Museum (certain!)
    11. No idea
    12. No idea

    Hi Alex! *waves*

    • Hi Emma. The sea waves too 😉

      Not bad score 🙂 His films contain important messages. You need to be very careful zipping trousers, don’t hit a volleyball too hard at someone’s face, it’s always useful to dodge spanners and superheroes aren’t always cool haha.

  3. I absolutely loved the Walter Mitte movie, but the (almost) ending with Sean Penn was the moment worth waiting for, Alex. I find Ben Stiller humble and willing to do almost anything to get a laugh. I knew 8/12 so 2/3rd of your list. Not very good but better than some. 🙂
