From the Publisher
"You talkin'' to me?"
If you''re a diehard film buff-or a just a Diehard
buff-this hilarious little book is talkin'' to you. Taking
a completely wacky approach to the game of movie trivia, author
Paul Copperwaite has devised scores of graphs-pie charts, bar
charts, flowcharts, diagrams, and tables-that tickle you while
testing your knowledge of the most memorable and most embarrassing
moments in cinematic history.
Copperwaite''s charts measure and quantify the strangest stuff:
Bruce Willis''s baldness, Al Pacino''s loudness, Keanu Reeves''
expressiveness (or lack thereof). King Kong''s irritability level.
Property values in Amityville. The coincidence between John
Travolta''s dancing in a film and that film''s box office success
(Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction hit it
big; Battlefield Earth flops). If you love movies and
pride yourself on how much you know about them, you''ll relish
being in on the jokes.
