Okay for all movie buffs out there, here's a game for us.. it's called... okay, so you know!
i'll start and whoever gets to answer shall ask the next question to get the thread rolling... for those unfamiliar with how the game goes, here's a sample:
Q: William Shatner & Halle Berry?
* Now to link/connect William Shatner to Halle Berry, among the many possible answers, one is:
A: WILLIAM SHATNER , Sandra Bullock - ms congeniality
Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman - practical magic
Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman - australia
Hugh Jackman, HALLE BERRY - X-men!
* there might be a shorter link but the point is to connect! okay, so here's the next question and if it can be helped, let's leave Kevin Bacon out of the equation! LOL
Q Barbra Streisand & Christian Bale?
PS this is a repost of the original as most of those who answered came up with incomplete asnwers. the answer/s should be in the form shown in the sample. And yes, it usually requires more than two movies to make the link/connection.
Oh, ok -- we get it, now. How about this, then?
Barbara Streisand and James Caan (Funny Lady)
James Caan and Marlon Brando (The Godfather)
Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp (Don Juan de Marco)
Johnny Depp and Heath Ledger (The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus -- ok, so it's in post-production, but hey!)
Heath Ledger and Christian Bale (I'm not There) Oh I'm dumb -- I just realized --
Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson (A Star is Born -- yes, I'm that old, I remember it)
Kris Kristofferson and Christian Bale (I'm not There ) voila!
Whew that was some connection - and great movies along the way! Great! Now you get to ask the next question... now we're rolling!
Ok: how about this -- Sophia Loren and Leonardo diCaprio
Sophia Loren + Rupert Everett - Pret a Porter
Rupert Everett + Julia Roberts - My Best Friend's Wedding
Julia Roberts + Tom Hanks - Charlie Wilson's War
Tom Hanks + Leonard di Caprio - Catch Me If You Can
My question : Judi Dench + Harrison Ford good luck
Oh! Now I get it! Each poster is supposed to supply the entire chain of connections! Originally I thought this was more interactive, where each new poster put in 1 connection and the next poster added to it. But I can see that that would (could) take us into very different directions, as my Christian Bale/Barbara Streisand connection was working through Paul Newman to Robert Redford to Barbara Streisand (The Way We Were). And yes, I am that old, too!
I'll see if I can solve your current challenge. I'm inspired, as I am watching a movie with Judi Dench right now!
Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett (Notes on a Scandal)
Cate Blanchett and Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull)
Does this score better for having fewer degrees of separation? Or worse, for not stringing out the connections thrugh 6 different films?
Good one MM! Actually the shorter the link the higher the score supposedly! Now shoot the Question
Anybody who comes out with a link/answer first shoud provide the next question (we'll assume s/he's answer is right - until somebody complains! besides it's easy to check the validity of the answers by jusy merely looking at them)
LegendaryN8 of course we can include Kevin Bacon
I like playing the "Kevin Bacon" game.
I got a good one - Carrot Top and Kevin Bacon.
Carrot Top and Don Rickles -- Dennis the Menace Strikes Again
Don Rickles and Rober DeNiro -- Casino
Robert DeNiro and Elisabeth Shue -- Hide & Seek
Elisabeth Shue and Kevin Bacon -- Hollow Man
Ok -- How about this one?
Edward Norton and Grace Kelly (I have no idea -- go for it!)
GRACE KELLY / Omar Sharif - Poppies Are Also Flowers
Omar Sharif / Barbra Streisand - Funny Girl
barbra Streisand / Robert de Niro - Meet the Fockers
Robert de Niro/EDWARD NORTON - The Score
Peter O'Toole & Dakota Fanning
The best I could do with yours is somehow connecting Tom Cruise to Brad Pitt.
Dakota Fanning was in War of the Worlds with TC and Brad Pitt was in Troy with Peter O'Toole.
Well you have to do a little research now Hurry or MM's gonna be back sooner than we think!
Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman - Rainman
Dustin Hoffman and Ben Stiller - Meet the Parents
Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz- There's something about Mary
C D and Eddie Murphy - Shrek
This is great Lifebydesign but the outstanding question is to connect
Peter O'Toole & Dakota Fanning.
If you are able to do so, post it here, and unless somebody beat you to it, you get to ask the next question
Aaaah, I get it :-) Even better, and I will be back.
i like playing basket ball and tennis....
Ok, here's my connection:
Peter O'Toole and Brad Pitt = Troy
Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise = Interview with the Vampire
Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning = War of the Worlds
Next pairing for your investigative pleasure:
Jody Foster and Sean Penn
(two of my favorite actors, btw)
Jodie Foster was in Inside Man with Clive Owen
Clive Owen was in Shoot 'em up with Paul Giamatti
Paul Giamatti was in Sideways with Thomas Hayden Chursh
Thomas Hayden Chursh was in Spiderman 3 with James Franco
James Franco was in Milk with Sean Penn
Phew, that was tough, I forgot Franco's name for a minute! lol
I'm sure there's a shorter one for this though
Ben Stiller was in Tropic Thunder with Robert Downey Jnr
Robert Downey Jnr was in A Scanner Darkly with Winona Ryder
Err: Sean Connery and Michael Douglas
Haha, I was left in a cinema as a young child and was brought up on movies and left over popcorn that had fell on the floor!
I'll leave this one to someone else, don't want to hog all the fun
Also I know I wouldn't do very well in this one, well done on the Connery/Douglas one, I thought I set a tough one but chose Connery as I watched Dr No the other night.
Dang it, Junkster, I was enjoying reading these -- whaddya stop for? I don't know who Christina Ricci is, and can't be bothered going to Imdb. Javier Bardem was in the movie with a title something like "christina, cathy, Barcelona"?
LOL Teresa! Here's a briefer on Ms Ricci: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christina_Ricci
Yes Junkster, it seems we have an audience in Teresa here, so why stop the fun?
Oh ok then, I'll give it a shot:
Christina Ricci was in Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp,
Johnny Depp was in Before Night Falls with Javier Bardem
I confess I googled the title of that film as I knew they were in a film together but have agonized all afternoon over what it was called.
Sorry, if I've cheated then feel free to set a new one. Or I'll go with this one:
Tim Allen and Shia La Boeuf (of however you spell it)
I've got it in 6, see if anyone else can

Russell Crowe. . .
Only one degree of separation there.

Haley Joel Osment and Liev Schrieber = Forrest Gump
Ok. How about: Reese Witherspoon and Paul Newman
Reese Witherspoon was Legally Blonde with Luke Wilson
Luke Wilson was in The Royal Tennenbaums with Gene Hackman
Gene Hackman was in A Bridge Too Far and wasn't Robert Redford in that?
Which leads to Redford and Paul Newman in Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, if I'm right about A Bridge too far -- and I cheated and checked ImDb, and yep.
So: Shirley McLaine and Oliver Reed?
I'm glad I was asleep when some of these ones were done as I'd have no chance, no idea who leiv schreiber is i'm afraid!
Anyway, the task at hand: Maggie Smith and Kevin Costner...hmm tough one

Michael Caine -> Charlize theron (Cider House Rules)

P.S: I did cheat a little bit from IMDB
It;s OK CW, nobody would be able to memorize all those titles! Besides the fun is in remembering which movies paired which actors! IMDB would be of little help if you don't know who/what you are looking for. Anyway, since you got the last question sorted, you shoot the next question
Well then how about two of my favorite stars Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks?
Try another pairing CW, they have at least 3 films together u've got mail; joe vs the volcano, sleepless in seattle so no links will be made.
Well those are some of my favorite movies and since I am from Seattle the last movie is even more memorable. Ok here is another one Meg Ryan and Denzel Washington?
No good, try another they appeared together in Courage Under Fire
Well then Julia Roberts and Pierce Brosnan
Julia Roberts, Sally Field - Steel Magnolias
Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan - Mrs Doubtfire
My turn, try Juliette Lewis + Macaulay Culkin
WOW!!! You are a movie guru. I should have thought of actors from different eras then. I will try this. I guess besides Home Alone I can't figure out any other movies of Culkin's.
Now quite a guru, just a movie buff! Now hurry before somebody beats you to this one. Good luck! But more importantly, enjoy
I am enjoying and I am checking IMDB too. I guess I haven't seen so many movies for me to accomplish this as quickly as you do. So far I am having a nice relaxed weekend and now I have to give my brain extra work out

Woody Harrelson in Kingpin with Bill Murray
Bill Murray in Ghostbusters with Dan Akroyd
Dan Akroyd in The Great Outdoors with John Candy
John Candy in Uncle Buck with Macauley Culkin

Are Christians held to a higher standard of behavior than non-Christians?The most ludicrous thing I've heard yet is someone saying they wish there was a test to see whether one is a true Christian. What the hell do you need that for? So you can judge a Christian and jump all over them...
