Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called Film Quiz Friday. 30 questions, including questions about movie weddings…

As Peter Cook’s character says in The Princess Bride, “Mawwiage is what bwings us together” and in this week’s film quiz, we’ve got a round themed around movie weddings. Just as the brilliant new comedy Polite Society has martial arts and a family conspiracy collide at a wedding, (read Lauren’s review here) we cover all sorts of genres in that round and the rounds on either side.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week) and leave us any other lovely feedback. No gifts please, we’re just excited to have you here!
