MovieClue™  Movie Puzzle

MovieClue™ puzzles were born here at Reel Happiness!

From the clue provided about a character, can you guess the actor who played him or her, the film in question, and perhaps even the director?

There’s a free MovieClue movie puzzle for you at the bottom of this page.

Instructions

  • Special knowledge required: Significant. Some will be in the public lexicon even for people who don’t follow movies (“An offer you can’t refuse”), while others will be obvious primarily to cinema fans (“You’re gonna need a bigger boat”). Movies are always in the mainstream for their time (such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Training Day), and the hint will give you a clear marker.
  • How to Play: The clue itself refers to either an action or attribute of the character, a famous scene or saying, or a pivotal/notable aspect of the film. The hint either expands on the clue itself, or refers to its subject in way that sparks your imagination. You can choose from among the various answer elements to give yourself additional hints.

Football Pro Sees Dough

Hint

Genre
Comedy, Drama
Year
1996
Film
Jerry Maguire

Now that you have the idea, let’s try one that’s a little more challenging!

Her Disco Collection is Out of This World

Hint
And it dominated his interstellar airwaves for years.
Genre
Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi
Year
2015
Film
The Martian
Solution
Jessica Chastain as Captain Melissa Lewis in The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott.
Explanation
Mark Watney (Matt Damon) didn’t like Disco music, and made repeated references to having been stuck on Mars with no alternatives, given that Captain Lewis’ personal music collection was the only music available to him. Chastain also starred in Interstellar, which was also about space travel.
