This ain’t no ham on rye – it’s your weekly film quiz, featuring famous Samuel L Jackson quotes from movies…

Of all the mad words of tongue or pen, the maddest are these: “Samuel L Jackson voices Garfield’s estranged dad in The Garfield Movie”. (He does; read Maria’s review here!) We hardly need an excuse to theme a film quiz around the wit and wisdom of one of the biggest movie stars of all time, but we’ve waited for the scantest to do his long-deserved quotes round. And somehow, we’ve managed to keep it family-friendly, or mostly profanity-free, anyway!

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 all just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Enough is enough – I’ve had it with this melon-farming intro on this Friday morning quiz! I’m opening some flipping windows…
