Murphy’s Movie Trivia Facts

Hey guys, I don’t wanna brag but I’m an expert at little known film facts. In fact I’m banned from trivia nights because I know so much. I’m like the Stephen Hawking merged with the Albert Einstein merged with the King of Movie Facts of movie facts. My brain is more movie trivia than man.  I know films like the back of my hand. And I know the back of my hand like the front of my hand. And I know that real well. Old Murphy “knows a lot about movies” McLachlan, that’s what they say when I strut into the room wearing my “I KNOW HEAPS ABOUT MOVIES AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY T SHIRT” T-shirt.
