It's forever on cable and I'll forever watch it whenever I come across it. I don't think I've actually seen the movie from beginning to the end but lumped together I've watched it dozens of times.

The movie Se7en came out in 1995 so you should accept "your severed wife's head" for the "life is like a box of.." question.

everyone knows that chocolates fits there. It is widely known. Plus in Se7en you are left to assume that it is his wife's head in the box, they never really show you. You wanna discuss what's in the briefcase that belongs to Marcellus Wallace next?

I thought they showed you the tippy top of her head, like just the hair poking over the rim of the box.

You should put a Hunt for Red October clue on there. After all it was the sixth-highest grossing movie of 1990

What does NC-17 movie mean? I thought it might have been a Star Trek thing (that is NCC-somehting), obviously not...

It's the MPAA ratings board system. Currently the ratings are: G = general audiences. PG = parental guidance suggested. PG-13 = parental guidance/may not be suitable for children under 13. R = restricted audience (17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). NC-17 = No children under 17 admitted

Movies almost never receive an NC-17 rating because it means they are not going to be marketable. If a film gets the feared NC-17 rating the studio will edit it and resubmit until it gets down to an R, and, actually, much of the time they will keep cutting until they get down to a PG-13 on the theory that they can make more money.

So when a big-budget wide-release film comes out with an NC-17 rating that's remarkable.

huh that's weird. I always assumed R was the top and it was actually restrictive. It seems you can go in at any age then as long as an adult is supervising you seeing the content

deemed unsuitable. Strange system.

Yes. I've got a funny story about when my mother took my sister and I to see Fright Night (rated R) when we were both still young children.

The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear also has a sexy pottery scene, should be accepted.
+1
Level 84
May 15, 2018
No. The sexy pottery scene in that movie is an obvious parody of the original scene. If we had to accept obvious parodies, then... Wayne and Garth drove their car into the Grand Canyon, Richard Crenna also wanted to search every ___house (in Wrongfully Accused), and there are probably parodies out there of Face/Off and Good Will Hunting as well that would fit the clue.

ok, then it should be added in the description of the quiz.

I agree. Every quiz should contain in the description "please just go for the most obvious answer".

Every Nicolas Cage movie is already a parody of humans.

It's not necessary to add that to the description because it should be obvious.

What’s the reason for the “Wicked smaht” quote in that clue? I know the film but I don’t see how “wicked” or “smaht” spelt that particular way relate to it/are in quotation marks.

I know he was a janitor, and a genius, but why “wicked” and “smaht” and why put them in quotation marks?

because he was from Boston and that's how they talk. Plus when Will is giving that pony tailed douche bag the business in the bar, his buddy leans in at the end and goes "my boy's wicked smaht" grabs some beer nuts and walks off. It's a pretty good reference.

it's a quote from the movie. Thus, the quotation marks.

Nailed it! I got Vanilla Ice on my first guess, solely because it just seemed like the kind of thing that would fit.
