Here’s one for the 1990s kids – this week’s film quiz covers taglines from every year of the decade and more general movie knowledge from all over the place.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £1: right here!

We’re not making a thing of doing tagline quizzes on bank holiday weekends, but four months (and ten years?) on from our 1980s edition, here we are in the 1990s! The decade, not the Scottish indie band. On either side of this tagline sandwich, the usual selection of movie trivia morsels to see you through the long weekend.

Once you’ve finished 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 give us any other lovely feedback. Please note I was dreaming when I wrote this, so sue me if I go too fast…

ROUND TWO – 1990s Movie Taglines

Can the most famous film star in the world fall for just an ordinary guy? Who says romance is dead? Whatcha gonna do? Not questions from this round, but can you name a movie from each year of the 1990s only by its tagline?

  1. “She walked off the street, into his life, and stole his heart.” (1990)
  2. “To enter the mind of a killer, she must challenge the mind of a madman.” (1991)
  3. “You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll hurl.” (1992)
  4. “A murdered wife. A one-armed man. An obsessed detective. The chase begins.” (1993)
  5. “From zero to hero.” (1994)
  6. “Five criminals. One line up. No coincidences.” (1995)
  7. “A lot can happen in the middle of nowhere.” (1996)
  8. “Nothing on Earth could come between them.” (1997)
  9. “Size does matter.” (1998)
  10. “Paul Edgecomb didn’t believe in miracles. Until the day he met one.” (1999)



Let’s finish with a random selection of pot luck movie questions – these could come from any era, any genre, or any level of difficulty. Enjoy!
