About This Quiz

Sometimes, in movies, there are standout actors. Think Johnny Depp in the Pirates if the Caribbean franchise (although Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley caught our eyes too). But other times, acting duos rise and their teamwork can be described as nothing other than genius. That isn't to say that there aren't disasters, because there are - trust us. But we're choosing to focus on the acting teams who've done amazingly well and we've written a quiz about it. 

Just how often do you go to the theater or rent/buy DVDs or stream movies on your phone? What we want to find out is just how much of a movie buff you are. We plan on doing this by giving you a list of actor duos. It'll be your job to tell us the name of the movie they starred in together. If that isn't enough, we'll also be giving you clues as to what the name of the movie is, so don't worry about getting stuck.
