PopWatch HeadScratcher No. 92

Slither_lHere’s something we haven’t done in a while: a PopWatch HeadScratcher:

What do these five movies have in common?

1983’s The Big Chill (with Glenn Close and Kevin Kline)
1989’s Shag (with Phoebe Cates and Bridget Fonda)
1993’s Rich in Love (with Ethan Hawke and Alfre Woodard)
2003’s Radio (with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ed Harris)
2006’s Slither (with Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks, pictured)

It’s not our primary objective to delay gratification on this one, so… the answer is after the jump. In the comments section, feel free to nominate other films which belong on this particular list, even candidates that only partially qualify. Enough hints. Good luck!

HeadScratcher answer: All these films are set in the great state of South Carolina, site of this week’s presidential primaries. Oh, and if you want us to continue to bring back HeadScratchers — or, if you don’t — let us know; your vote counts.

  • Kate

    I have missed the Head Scratchers…I used to be really good at the music themed ones so I’m all for bringing those back. :)

  • Pamela

    Yes, do bring back Headscratchers – even though I usually end up cheating by visiting IMDB.com! And by my headscratcher count (checking back in your archives), shouldn’t this be No. 93?
    Also, thanks for the Nathan Fillion photo accompaniment – yum.

  • Cara

    Absolutely bring them back. I can never get them, and they usually bother me for days, but it gives me something to think about in American Lit :)

  • Joan

    Yes, do bring the HeadScratchers back. I may not have known this one but I’m bound to know one eventually!

  • Molly

    I’m not very good at the HeadScratchers, but I’m all for anything that puts more pictures of Nathan Fillion on PopWatch :)

  • Devin

    Bring ‘em back! It made my day to see my name listed on the site… even though that was not a frequent occurence.

  • ash

    bring them back!!

  • Martha

    Yes, please – bring back the HeadScratchers! I’m terrible at them, but enjoy them nonetheless.
    Wasn’t “The Notebook” set in South Carolina? Or was that NC?

  • phil

    bring em back!

  • Cece

    Bring ‘em back just for the sheer joy of getting a shout out when you answer cleverly.

  • Patrick A. Yearout

    Please, please bring back the Headscratchers! They were my favorite part of the weekend.
    And I’d like to add “The Patriot” (2000), with Mel Gibson to your list of films set in South Carolina.

  • banan

    Oh Headscratchers – where have you been?
    Bring ‘em back.

  • Denise

    Prince of Tides, right?

  • gunga

    btw, yearout, “The Patriot” also starred the late Heath Ledger.
