    • Harold and Maude is the only one I’ve not seen, but it’s in a few lists and wanted to include some from previous decades. It’s funny the ones you’ll see in some lists. Some include Mean Girls, Pulp Fiction and even Star Wars! If I do a second quiz, that will definitely make it in there.

    • Great score Abbi. I had a feeling you’d do well in this one 🙂 Some fantastic comedies in there. I’ve already quoted a few but will definitely be adding some new Line(s) of the Day,

    • It was 12/12 but as the others would have been Fight Club, The Rocky Horror Show and Donnie Darko you can say you’d have got them all. It was a chance to highlight a different set of films. The whole issue of what a cult film is sure is open to interpretation. Harold and Maude is one of the first ones to come up on lists. The Rolling Stone reader-chosen poll includes Pulp Fiction, Blade Runner and A Clockwork Orange so it’s more open than most genres.
