    Coneheads was released in 1993. Define “Hit” movie. This is an question where there are 2 possible answers based on your definition of “Hit”.

      Wayne’s World was released the year earlier (Valentine’s Day, 1992), so there’s no ambiguity about the answer. As far as “hit”, it made over $120 mil in domestic box office on a $20 mil budget. I think that qualifies.

  2. Brian Wiggett says:

    So, for the final jeopardy answer, was the key word “hit” for the movie? Because I’m pretty sure Coneheads was released before Wayne’s World. It would seem ambiguous, especially for Jeopardy!, to let the answer be defined that way.

      My thoughts exactly, however, Coneheads was released in 1993, whereas, Wayne’s World was 1992.

    Wow! Another 6-figure champ on Jeopardy. Great going Greg. Work that board! =)

    Good to see a clip of Montgomery Clift as a clue.

    Could someone help me understand how The Bionic Woman fits into the “ear, nose, and throat” category?

    @John, like General MacArthur you will return. :)

    • Marilyn Ahrenhoerster says:

      I think it was something about her reconstructed ear.

      • jacob ska says:

        Thanks. When I think about the Bionic Woman I think about her legs and how fast she ran after reconstruction. ENT never crossed my mind.

    why isn’t the Chevy Chase movie “Fletch” listed as an SNL hit movie?

    • Eric S says:

      I don’t believe “Fletch” was ever a sketch on SNL. I think if there was one, or even a character named “Fletch”, this response might be credited.
      If this helps, “Thank you very little ” (really couldn’t help myself ).
