Name the Movie Game (26 January Edition)

Kimberly Wilson, last week's winner, is the host for this week's game. As a reminder, here are the rules:

1. You may ask up to five yes or no questions a day. Each guess does count as one question.

2. Please number each question or each guess to make it easier for Kim to respond to them.

3. The player who is the first to guess the movie correctly will be the one to make the selection for the following week’s Name the Movie Game.

4. The game will end on Saturday night if the movie is not guessed.


Kim is thinking of a classic movie made in the 1980s. Let the game begin!

  2. Hey, Kim, no 24/7 "tech support"? OK, let's get down to business. #1 - Does this movie take place in the 1980s in the U.S.? (Yes, a risky two-part question...I fully realize a "no" on one part equals a "no" for all of it!)

  5. Hi Kim, the 1980s are not my area of expertise, but of course I'll give it a try.

    1. Was it nominated for any Oscars?
    2. Is it a drama?

  6. Yes, it would have been one "no." Sorry for being confusing. I'll count it as two questions. #3 - is the lead character between the ages of 15 and 25?
