    I must not be much of a romantic. I know only 2 answers: 2, Roxanne and 6, American Graffiti. I suspect 3 is Bull Durham. I guess I have some catching up to do.

    One out of two, jestrfyl! I see you’re better on sci-fi and comedy than on romance, at least in movies! Bull Durham is a good guess, but not correct, and neither is #2, but #6 is right.
