Movie Info

A trivia-obsessed University of Michigan graduate student and Ann Arbor native adds a new twist to his favorite game upon realizing that he's about to enter the real world, and he has no idea how to earn a living. Paul's father has always been there to support him, but now the time has come for the son to strike out on his own. Uncertain of how to function outside of his comfort zone, Paul uses his vast years of experience answering random questions in bars to launch the first official Ann Arbor Pub Trivia Tournament, an event that will determine once and for all who is the biggest fountain of useless knowledge in town.

Ann Arbor has never been more lovingly embraced and portrayed.

...a curiously misguided piece of work that squanders the talents of an undeniably strong group of performers...

Audience Reviews for Answer This!

The decent cast can't rescue the lame, clich├ęd script, and the main premise is difficult to believe, as trivia, by definition, is unimportant.

★★1/2 (out of four) A likeable, but not entirely satisfying comedy that offers an appealing lead character. Too bad it's way too conventional for its own good. Christopher Gorham plays the son of a college professor who teaches a class of his own, though he isn't nearly as loved as his father. What he really enjoys is playing trivia games. When the bars of Ann Arbor, Michigan starts a contest, he and his pals join forces to win. Gorham has a nice screen presence and is fun to watch. Evan Jones as a sprts trivis jock also has a good time. I just wish there was a little more fun here with less predictability. [IMG][/IMG]
