"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.
