Name that Film

Post by webberg »

Very simple.

Put up a line from a film.

The person who guesses the film (sans Google or other engine) - gets to put up another line (which may be assisted by Google)

For example - an easy starter.

"I love the smell of napalm in the morning"

Score extra point for including associated trivia and remember that this is easier than rowing. :twisted:

Correct.

Like I said an easy opener.

Try to keep it clean (and preferably in English).

Following Paul's line of thought, is it maybe:

Hmmm - I thought this would be very easy but I guess the "they're easy when you know them" rule applies.

You are not right Rodger - but again, a good guess.
