Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

They shoot. They score! - A one way ticket out of Happyville. The loss of the people who were dearest to Happy (Adam Sandler) was either directly or indirectly related to his favorite sport. Where did his mother (Lisanne Collett) go when she left to get as far away as she
could from a hockey rink?

2. It didn't take much to set Happy off. The earliest recollection he had of his anger management issues was prompted by what incident?

3. You remember why Happy was cut from the hockey team he tried out for, don't you? He was a poor skater. He also needed to work on his puck handling skills. What kind of skill did golf require in Happy's opinion?

4. How did Happy discover his talent for golf?

5. The IRS gave Happy ninety days to come up with the $270,000 he needed to save his grandmother's (Frances Bay) house. How long would it have taken the orderly (Ben Stiller) at the nursing home to earn that amount if he sold ten quilts a day?

6. The reason why Terry (Nancy McClure) walked out of Happy's life was because she didn't think he'd ever amount to anything. But that wasn't what he told his grandmother. He got even more creative when Virginia (Julie Brown) asked him if he was seeing anyone. How did his story change?

7. It was Chubbs Peterson (Carl Weathers) who
Happy Gilmore
(1) She moved to Egypt. (2) He beat a kid over the head with a toy hammer for stealing his party blower. (3) The only skill the sport required, he said, was being able to stuff a fat ass into a pair of goofy pants. (4) A mover bet Happy that he couldn't hit a golf ball further than he could. (5) $270,000 divided by $2,000 = 135 days.

(6) He told his grandmother that his girlfriend was hit by a car. He told Virginia that she fell off a cliff. (7) A (8) He didn't want anyone else touching them. They belonged to his late grandfather. (9) He wrestled the gator back into the water, and then he killed it with a head-butt. (10) Athletes (even golfers) are superstitious folk. Happy didn't wear his signature hockey jersey for the event.


Mr. Deeds
He loved the apartment's echo. How do you take that home?
Dennis Dugan, 1996

Mr. Deeds
Steven Brill, 2002
We've been trying to sell Deeds' lavish, New York City apartment ever since he returned to Mandrake Falls. No luck, so far. Think you can help? Here's the deal: if you can talk someone into buying the place before the end of the week, we'll throw in the water fountain that was filled with Hawaiian Punch, unless you'd rather have something else. Just don't ask us for the thing he liked the most. We can't give that away.
discovered "The amazing golf ball whacker guy." What did he say to Happy after his prosthetic hand was knocked into the path of an oncoming truck?

A. "Don't worry about that. It's made of wood. It's real sturdy."
B. "I'm gonna knock you and your balls into the road if you don't look behind you the next time you swing!"
C. "Nice shot, kid. I'm just glad that wasn't my head!"

8. Let's see Tiger Woods do that! Happy insisted on retrieving his errant shots, even if they landed in a pond. To the delight of the crowd, he would often dive in head-first. He also insisted on carrying his own clubs. Why?


9. Let's say you're a sports columnist for the Miami Herald. The assignment you've been given is to write an article on the golfer who's bringing in record crowds to every tournament he participates in. Your first thought is, "Not that loser." But after witnessing his antics first-hand you can't stop laughing. When your editor sees the story you've written, he can't stop laughing either. "I love it. The description of how Happy got his ball back from the gator was hilarious." How was that feat accomplished?

10. What does a professional athlete do
when things aren't going so well? Sometimes all it takes is a few minor adjustments. We think we know why Happy finished last in the first tournament he participated in. Sure, it had something to do with his game. But if you go back and watch it again, you'll find something else. He just didn't appear to be his usual self, in more ways than one.
