Let’s start 2021 off right, shall we? How about some Feel-Good Movie trivia?
This week, we’re all about feeling good with thirty questions from movies that leave us smiling like big saps as the credits roll. Something funny, touching, or just plain silly makes these movies a nice “comfort food” for watching when times are tough.
We’ll kick this year off by leaving 2020 behind and having a few laughs and and some happy tear. Sound good? Then let’s get to it.
I’m still open to suggestions for shows in 2021. Got a show, movie, comic, or book series we haven’t touched on yet? Suggest it. We’re always excited to hear ideas from fans. Visit the contact page to let us know your ideas.
When you’re done with Feel-Good Movie trivia, be sure to fill out the quick survey at the bottom so we can get feedback on the episode’s difficulty. This is really useful in constructing future episodes of the show. Was it too easy? Too hard? Or just right? All the episodes have these feedback fields, so take a quick second and fill it out. It’s easy and completely anonymous.

Happy New Year, gang, this is episode 102 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. I’m host, Brian Rollins. It’s 2021! We made it.
To start the new year off right, I decided to go with something uplifting. Feel Good movies. There isn’t a hard definition for these films, but they’re the kind that leave you with a big, sappy smile on your face as the credits roll. I figured we could use a little of that to kick this year off.
Like in years past, we have three rounds of ten questions each. I ask ‘em and you answer ‘em. Or you try your best to. I think that covers it, so let’s get this show, and the year, started.
The Dorky Round
4. What 1987 movie was remade in 2020 on streaming platform Quibi by celebrity fans of the original?
5. During auditions for what 2001 movie, Anne Hathaway fell out of her chair, cementing her casting?
8. Robert Loggia and Tom Hanks performed their iconic piano number without the aid of doubles in what movie?
9. Julie Andrews became available to film what movie after Jack Warner refused to cast her in My Fair Lady?
The Geeky Round
1. Anna Wintour, the editor at Vogue, was the inspiration for the title character in what 2006 movie?
The Nerdy Round
1. In addition to playing villains on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eliza Dushku and Clare Kramer appeared together in what 2000 film?
9. After the production of It's a Wonderful Life, the RKO Effects Department won a special Oscar for the development of what?
And we are done. This is the first of at least 52 episodes for 2021. I’ll start Season Three in late February. If you have suggestions for topics in the next season, drop me line at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com. I haven’t filled out the entire season yet, so I’m open to hearing about anything I might have missed.
We’ll be back next Wednesday for more trivia fun. Here’s your clue for next week:
“What iconic superhero was created by a pair of high school students in 1933?”
I feel a little silly we haven’t touched on this before. I’ll have a lot more comic book characters in the coming year to make up for that omission.
Thanks for listening and here’s to your 2021 feeling good.
