If you scored a 0 - And your name isn’t Paris Hilton or George Bush – What’s your excuse?

If you scored a 1 or 2 - I’ll assume that you were born after 1980 and think that movies in black and white are what they are referring to when they use the expression “Film Noire”

If you scored a 3 or 4 – I know somebody that’s related to a guy that shook Roger Ebert’s hand. Maybe he could give you some pointers.

If you scored a 5 or 6 –“ Why you look-a so sad? It’s-a not so bad. It’s-a nice-a place! Ah, shaddap a you face!” – Sorry for some reason I was channeling Joe Dolce.

If you scored a 7 or 8 – Look at the bright side: at least you don’t have to get pointers from that guy who shook Roger Ebert’s hand and never washed it.

If you scored a 9 or a 10 – You probably deserve a Movie Trivia Prize – But I ain’t givin’ you one.

You are a brave man indeed to have incurred the possibility of being given pointers from that guy who once shook Roger Ebert's hand!
