Totally TiVo Trivia

If you have cable you know that if you hit the 'Info' button ~or similar~ you get a brief description of the program you are pondering. In today's blog I will test your movie knowledge. I've looked up the description of a variety of movies. What is your movie grade? Anyone who gets all 10 right will win a prize (stick of gum, $10,000, or a hug...I haven't decided which one yet). Good luck..........................(p.s. you don't have to have cable to guess, just a good cranial movie data base).

1) 1993~ A kidnapper contacts his victim's Seattle boyfriend three years after the crime.
2) 1999~ A man's life changes when an international star walks into his bookshop.
3) 1999~ A former high-school nerd, now a reporter, gets a second chance when she goes under cover for a story on cool teens.

9) That Thing You Do
