Bearette: You're right about High Fidelity. I could really relate to Rob Gordon (Cusack's character).

st. dickeybird: While your guesses are hilarious, they aren't correct. Your guess on #10 nearly made coffee spew from my nose! Thank you for the comic relief this fine hump day morning!

1. Ramirez
8. Lazlo
9. Jennifer (Tina Yothers). LOL

curare_z: No dice on any of those, sorry. Although I did enjoy Lazlo in Real Genius, he wasn't my favorite character and not being a troubled genius living in the steam tunnels of a California Tech School, I couldn't really relate to him (btw, did you notice that the guy who played Lazlo in Real Genius also played Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite?)

Would it be too cheesy to guess Connor MacLeod for #1?

I'm too uncultured for the rest.

Perplexio said...

dickeybird: No, and you're correct! :-)

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw Lazlo in Napoleon Dynamite. I was so happy to see him again! :-) hee hee
