Nice quiz! I have one small quibble. A diving bell is actually a noun... while it's used for diving, it isn't actively diving itself.

you are absolutely right, thanks

Isn't 'beneath' a preposition, or does it only count as such if you're saying what lies beneath a particular thing, rather than just what 'lies beneath' in general?
May 15th, 2012 at 18:42 GMT
@ChileNoseJam Beneath is used in English as both an adverb and a preposition. In "What Lies Beneath" it is definitely functioning as an adverb describing the "where" the action of the verb is. In order for something to be a preposition, functionally, it must have an object. For example, in "what lies beneath that log" beneath is functioning as a preposition, but the prepositional phrase is an adverbial phrase modifying the verb showing where.

The conjunction version of this would be pretty short:
War ___ Peace
Live Free ___ Die Hard
Every Which Way ___ Loose

Missing Mean Girls is going to ruin my day :(
May 15th, 2012 at 20:35 GMT
Or interjections: ___, Wilderness!; __, God!....I'm out.
May 15th, 2012 at 21:15 GMT
@MovieGuru: Can we expect the author’s “missing-punctuation” version? I hope so! (Anyways; nice job – as always...).
May 15th, 2012 at 21:52 GMT
I never thought of "*** Quiet" as an adverb (I thought of it as "*** [is] Quiet") but I guess it works. But "Every ***** Way" fits the dictionary definition of adjectival use better than the definition of pronoun use.
May 15th, 2012 at 22:31 GMT
just happened to have watched Yours, Mine and Ours the other day.
May 15th, 2012 at 22:52 GMT
I don't think Kelsey Grammer is any of these movies either.
May 15th, 2012 at 23:14 GMT
Am I the only one who tried "Snakes on a Train"?
May 16th, 2012 at 00:45 GMT
@kezmic - no. Surely hitchcock would be kicking himself that he missed that one!
May 16th, 2012 at 01:29 GMT

May 16th, 2012 at 01:56 GMT
this is a really good type of quiz. More please !

White Men Can't ... dance! No, wait, it has something to do with basketball. Shoot? Dunk? Dribble? [fail]

Fun quiz, but I especially love the stats. For some reason I missed three each in Adjective and Adverb. Must be my mental block, right? Then I saw the stats, where those misses are in two clusters (including the two least-guessed, and all in the third column with the lowest hit rates)--whoever else is missing them, they seem to be missing the same ones. Might be my mental block or just lesser known movies. Either way, interesting pattern.

"your" in "How to train your dragon" is not a pronoun as it does not replace a noun. It is a determiner
May 16th, 2012 at 10:35 GMT
Was desperately trying to think of any John Waters movie with "Girls" in the title for ages!
May 16th, 2012 at 10:42 GMT
Since when did interrogatives become pronouns?
May 16th, 2012 at 18:18 GMT
blairio and wolfpackjew: Didn't you learn possessive pronouns and interrogative pronouns in school? The "your" does replace a noun: the name of the dragon's owner.
May 16th, 2012 at 20:23 GMT
Did anybody else think the title of this quiz was referring to Kelsey (Grammar)?
May 16th, 2012 at 20:45 GMT
Mean Girls in the least guessed column on Stats? Shocking. Film of the century that was.
May 16th, 2012 at 23:44 GMT
The thin man? no. The third man? No. Eventually got it, but that one was annoying! Good quiz!
Jun 30th, 2012 at 17:07 GMT
You should use the first name in the directors too--- well it was only an issue for me with Mean Girls, because come on, Mark Waters is not the first Waters you think of. I spent so much time thinking through the John Waters catalogue.

This quiz deserves a Grammar Award.

I was frustrated that neither "Invisible" nor "Running" worked for "The _____ Man," and that "Agnes" didn't work for "____ of God."
Apr 30th, 2013 at 06:40 GMT
Maybe accept "Secret" for The___Man (Ford) as well as he directed both that and the currently accepted answer?
