About This Quiz

We're going with a multi-pronged approach to figuring out how old you are in this quiz. While your favorite movies, actors and actresses will take us part of the way there, we'll also rely on questions that explore how you tend to watch movies as well. When it's all said and done, we're confident that we can get pretty darn close to your actual age. Who knows, maybe we can hit the nail right on the head.

For example, if you're someone who has mostly seen PG and G-rated movies to this point in your life, that would suggest that you're likely going to be younger than 16. Should you also mention that you are a big fan of animated films and big-budget Hollywood blockbusters about superheroes, we're even more sure that we've got you pegged as a teenager.

Alternatively, perhaps you're someone who grew up with the drive-in movie theater as a regular entertainment option. If some of your favorite films are in black and white or Technicolor, we'll be pretty sure that you're a part of the Baby Boomer generation. If we delve a little deeper, we'll be able to narrow it down to a specific number.

Grab that bucket of popcorn and find your seat; the show's about to begin.
