Loved the quiz...but I think you guys forgot that Kate Hudson starred in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, which made over $100 million. Also, the question about which film never had a number one weekend at the box office was worded wrong, since Superman Returns did have a number one weekend (4th of July weekend before Pirates of the Caribbean knocked it out of the top spot) while the other three did not. I could be wrong on that one. Overall, great quiz...

great quiz - love box office trivia BUT question #6 is incorrect, Superman was #1 the weekend of 6/30-7/2 2006. That left me scratching my head, but i'd love to see more quizzes this challenging in the future. Great job!
