Film Quote Quiz 2024! Test your skills, win exclusive prize!

..right, here we go, after weeks of research, I've compiled this list of thirteen taxing films, which YOU must guess the title of, with no other clue than one line from the film in question.

Re: Party Time!

You know, any event you have to go to, wedding, party, BBQ, works do, and so on, then you're almost guaranteed a certain list of songs, and these two would be on it! You certainly couldn't go anywhere in the 80's without hearing these. The Birdie Song especially brings back memories of being reluct...

We are all so busy, that's all I ever seem to hear these days, with everything! Longer lead times for stuff, longer on hold times when you phone someone, longer waiting times when you need something.

I'm glad you drew attention to the face - now I can:t unsee it :lol:

Geofencing and geotiming
