raidergirl3 said...

Tough stuff here. I'm guessing here.

2. A Christmas Story

4. Love Story

tinylittlelibrarian said...

Valentina - nope! And that's the easier version. The first time I did it, it was just 3 places where people had been shot. :)

Raidergirl - Nope and nope, sorry! :)

Laura said...

11. Ferris Bueller's Day Off?

tinylittlelibrarian said...

Laura - correct! :)

raidergirl3 said...

3.Love Actually

thanks for the extra clues.

Julie said...

2 - Bridget Jones' Diary

Dewey said...

Ah! I'm terrible at this sort of thing. But #4 can't be Love Story -- wrong college. I hope you don't mind if I steal this. It's not book related, but it's too much fun to pass up.

Tiny Little Librarian said...

Dewey, you're right, it's not Love Story. :)

And please do steal it - I stole it from someone else. :) It is a fun one.

shandon said...

Am I too late to play? My guesses:

#1 - A Fish Called Wanda

#9 - Raiders of the Lost Ark

#14 - Some Like It Hot

tinylittlelibrarian said...

Good job! Perfect score!

Crazee4books said...

Number 4 is: Philadelphia Story

The first one of course with Kate, Cary, and Jimmy.

Number 5 wouldn't be My Fair Lady...would it???

Crazee4books said...

And is number 7: Four Weddings and a Funeral?

tinylittlelibrarian said...

Bravo, crazee!!

Anonymous said...

I think #13 is "The Full Monty"..yes?

raidergirl3 said...

I'm going to guess The Princess Bride for #6 because...

I love nearly all those movies guessed so far, so I figure we have the same taste, so you must love The Princess Bride, and it hasn't been listed yet, so that's the one that might fit for the coolest movie.

tinylittlelibrarian said...

I do indeed love it and it's number 6!
