Tuesday's Twelve Tags #13

Last week's winner: J.D., who practically clinched the win even without getting the theme, IDing 7 of the 12 films. But he went and got 8 more points by guessing the theme, and with no hints!
The theme: Each movie featured full frontal male nudity.

Here's the new dozen. The rules are simple: I'm going to give you a dozen taglines, all you have to do is name as many flicks that they belong to as you can. Try to resist the Google. Get the most and you win. There will always be a theme, though it's worth will vary according to how difficult I think it is. This week's theme is moderate? I'm making it worth 6 points.

1. No parents. No rules.
2. It's 11:59 on New Year's Eve. Do you know where your date is?
3. Brace yourself. This politician is about to tell the truth!
4. It's about falling in love. For the first time
5. For some, it's the last real taste of innocence, and the first real taste of life. But for everyone, it's the time that memories are made of.
6. They did the crime, They paid the time, Now they're...undercover?
7. They're out of school, out on Nantucket, and out of their minds. With this crowd, anything can happen!
8. The man in the hat is back...
9. Once in a lifetime comes a motion picture that makes you feel like falling in love all over again. This is not that movie.
10. good times never seemed so good
11. There are two sides to the American dream.
12. The greatest gambler in the West has finally met his match.

As you get them right, I'll mark them as gotten and stuff. Good luck. No hints.

Shane, though break on #8 - so close. Nice pickup there, Justin.

Nice well-rounded effort, gang. Shane leads with a mere 4, leaving the win wide open to anyone, so long as they get the theme.

I'm most impressed (suspicious?? ;) ) of Arjun, getting number one, which is a movie I'm sure I'm one of the only ones to have seen.

Not that all of the flicks have been named, the theme ought to be a relatively easy. And I think you all will like what it is. :D

Fletch said...

Wow - not a single guess on the theme? Furreals?

Ok. Here's your hint: it's cast-based.

Nick said...

Theme - Every movie has a cast member that was in The Goonies.

Nick said...

You should do cast-related themes more often. Those are the easiest for me.

Fletch said...

Goonies never say die.

Fantastic work, Nearly Headless Nick. You are officially on the leaderboard.

Nope - gots to mix up the types of themes. Otherwise, it'd be too easy. :D

Nick said...

Yay for leaderboard!

Now if only I could win again at either of your games, I'd move up higher.
