BBC One's "Pointless" is best
described as sort of a reverse take on "Family Feud". Instead of teams
looking for the most popular answers to a survey of what people said,
they're looking for the least popular correct answers to said survey.
The aim, naturally, is to have the lowest score possible.
"I'm going to have a stab at 'The King
"The King of Tides" isn't even a movie.
Perhaps she was thinking of "The Prince of Tides" starring this guy.
Not even close to Robert Redford. He
couldn't hold Redford's jock!
"I'm going to have to have a wild stab
in the dark, and I'm going to say 'Prince of Persia'."
"Can I make absolutely clear the
criteria? I know it's different than normal, but it's not name a film with
'prince' in the title."
"I'm really sorry. I can't even think
who he is."
"I think he might be maybe more of a
classic actor, so I'm going to for 'The Seven Samurai'."
"On the plus side it didn't have the
word 'prince' in the title."
"I don't know anything by him
either...I'm going to say 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'."
"I don't know about the good and the
ugly, but that's just bad!"
You know what Chuck, you're right.
"Well, let me just say this...it's neck
"I've heard of Robert Redford. I'm aware
he works in the film industry. If he hasn't made a movie called "Stake
Out", he should."
"It's a shame of course because 'Prince
of Steakhouse' is a Robert Redford film." I love me some British "humour".
"I'm going to take a guess at something
he might have been in. I'm gonna go for 'The Towering Inferno'."
It was the kind of film he might have
done, but he wasn't in it.
"Like that's gonna help."
And mercifully, the round is over and so is
this article. But, for what it's worth, I know five Brits who could have
performed better than the majority of the contestants seen above.
