Quiz Time: Movers in Pop Culture!

Eight Trivia Questions on Movers throughout Film, Literature, Sports, and TV

Moving isn’t for everyone. To be a mover is to have levels of strength, finesse, and patience not often found in mortal men. So it’s only natural that so many of our heroes for the worlds of film, fiction, and athletics have spent time “on the truck,” as the kids say. (The kids don’t actually say that, as far as we know — but movers do.)

Also, movers and moving companies have been referenced in pop culture many times.

So here’s a little test of your moving and pop culture knowledge. Eight simple questions. Eight correct answers. Good luck!

3. Which comedian starred alongside Dana Carvey, Rodney Dangerfield, and Randy Quaid in a 1980's film about a cross-country move? (Hint: the movie also featured wrestler King Kong Bundy as one of the movers, and it was the feature film debut of Clueless actress Stacey Dash.)
