Movie Meme

I just found this fun meme at No Fighting, No Biting.

Go to and look up your favorite 10 movies, noting 5 key words for each. These are ten of my favorites - couldn't possibly consider this a final list. Guess which movies these are...

1. Norwegian-American, writer, mother, cat, San Francisco (updated to make it a little easier)

2. marriage, courtship, fistfight, Ireland, cottage

3. sea battle, healing, chariot, leprosy, slavery (come on - this one's easy!)

4. small town, alarm clock, Deja vu, piano lesson, television

5. gourmet, Paris France, refugee, feast, period piece (updated to make it a little easier)

6. secretary, harmonica, banker, grandfather, fireworks

7. Washington D.C., housing shortage, World War II, farce, lodger (updated to make it a little easier)

8. Los Angeles, translator, chef, private school, Mexico

9. New York, photographer, science experiment, agility, teenage boy

10. French Resistance, love triangle, nightclub, piano, airplane

Correct Guesses So Far:

1. I Remember Mama

2. The Quiet Man

3. Ben Hur

4. Groundhog Day

5. Babette's Feast

6. You Can't Take it With You

7. The More the Merrier

8. Spanglish

9. Spiderman

10. Casablanca

Let me know if you decide to share the fun. Way to go anonymous! :)

My guesses:

2. Far and Away
3. Groundhog Day
8. Spanglish

(I love Spanglish, by the way!)

What a fun meme! (And I still have to do the marriage one. Doh!)

#9 is definitely Spiderman!!

Oops, make Groundhog Day #4. I've never seen it, but I'm guessing based on the "Deja vu" and "alarm clock" clues.

Funny, I took the "Ireland" and "fistfight" clues from #2 and immediately thought Far and Away. I'm reminded, though, that the movie featured *boxing*, not fistfighting. It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I remember it being a decent movie.

Now I'm dying to know what #2 really is!

Ah, well I've never seen Far and Away. Perhaps I should add it to my Netflix list. But I want to see if there are any other guesses before I reveal #2. :)

Say, nice to see you around coyote.

By the way, nearly all of the remaining movies are "old" movies.

#2 sounds like The Quiet Man.

3. Ben-Hur

duh, the sea battle confused me. haven't seen that one for a loooooong time.


Love2Learn Mom said...

Yeah, I thought "chariot race" was a little too obvious. :)

7 is The More the Merrier. I'm still working on the other 2.

Got the last 2: 1) I Remember Mama and 5) Babette's Feast.
