I realize the clue for #22 could describe a ton of different movies, including one other also on this list, but that was part of the joke.

Meh. I just take speed quizzes like this untimed. It might skew the statistics slightly, but it skews them worse when you can't come close to finishing.

Should be easy to finish for someone with such an extensive knowledge of popular films like yourself... already upped the time limit years ago.

I got zero. In my defense I hadn't been born yet when these movies came out and I've only seen one. I know, I know, I'll get right on watching them.

You were born after 2008? Then I'm impressed you even got one.

Junior jubblies? Surely there's something more noteworthy to say about that movie than whose breasts were exposed in it.

A little more seriously, there was a meme going around for a while that in order to get an Oscar for best actress you had to get naked. Anne Hathaway joked about this when she hosted the Oscars the year after she got very naked repeatedly in the (horrible) Love and Other Drugs, feigning (?) anger that her on-screen nudity didn't garner her a statue. This was a pretty popular and evidently well-supported meme around the 1990s, when in 2003 Charlize Theron won the Oscar for a role she was nude in, and similarly Halle Berry won the Oscar in 2001 for a role she was nude in, and same goes for Hillary Swank in 1999, Gwyneth Paltrow in 1998, Helen Hunt in 1997, Jessica Lange in 1994, and Holly Hunter in 1993. Though Paltrow had in fact been naked more than once on screen before Shakespeare, it was in small and little-known roles. In '98 she was known for playing innocent in Emma, Seven, Sliding Doors and Great Expectations. And dating Brad Pitt. Some people made a big deal about it.

How is "Gigi" a follow up to "My Fair Lady"? Gigi was released in 1958 and My Fair Lady was released in 1964.

Music & lyrics team Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Lowe collaborated on the 1956 Broadway musical My Fair Lady, which was a smash hit. The first thing they worked on together after that was the musical Gigi, and it was billed as such. Later, there was a film adaptation of My Fair Lady.
