The Flick: Never in a million years would I think a movie about a guy who studies the bible and also has an affinity for competitive bar trivia could be a good mix.  But the clever and engaging "Answer This!" just manages to pull it off, partly due to the witty writing ala helmer Christopher Farah  and party due to a cool cast including lead man Christopher Gorham.  (Plus his chemistry with ‘every woman’ hottie Arielle Kebbel is fantastic!)  A simply entertaining film, "Answer This!" does walk a fine line, but thankfully never gets too preachy on the religious side and doesn’t get too raunchy on the boozehound side – the best of both worlds.  

Best Feature: With the 'Behind the Scenes' an ass kissing session, 'Deleted Scenes' unmemorable and 'Outtakes' forgettable, I’m going with the 'Commentary' on this one – slightly wooden, but insightful.

Best Hidden Gem: Actor Evan Jones, who plays sports trivia expert and crazed Wildman Izzy ‘Ice’ Dasselway – wacky and inspired!

Worth the Moola: For a comedy about trivia that safely walks in the middle of the road, this one has a lot of the right answers.
