3. Name That Flick;
"You'll be glad you came!" Set in South Florida during the fifties, it centered on a group of testosterone-driven youths attending school at Angel Beach High who try to lose their virginity at a redneck cat-house .......
4. What's the popular wine-based beverage who's name comes from the Spanish word for blood ?

Those are the only two I got right, too, quicksilver.

Although, I got the Truth or Crap part right. I think I might join that group, in fact!
