  1. I got 41 which is pretty dang amazing considering that I’ve only seen maybe 4 or 5 of these. I credit AS’s movie coverage with teaching me about movies I have not seen.

  2. 47!

    I’m kind of bummed that for the three I didn’t know I didn’t get lucky with my random choices (22, 30, 48), but on the flip side I feel validated in not having an artificially inflated score.

    Also highly disappointed that every single screenshot wasn’t of two lesbians pressing their foreheads against each other.

    Otherwise, an incredibly perfect quiz experience.

  3. i am very truly impressed by how much movie knowledge everybody has picked up simply from seeing autostraddle reviews and lists!!! i was worried it would be too hard cuz i have a skewed view on what is “common knowledge” in the world of lesbian pop culture.

  4. Considering how many I haven’t seen, and the number of times that were pure guesswork based on names of movies I remembered hearing about, I’ll take my 27 happily. I do need to see more of them, though.

  5. 50/50. I have watched 34 of them, but some of them I have on DVD but haven’t gotten around to watching yet. I wasn’t sure about the Penélope Cruz movie, but I knew which one was a Pedro Almodóvar movie, so that made it easier to guess.
