QUIZ: Professional movie reviewer or Sarah Palin?

August 17

We present to you a challenge.

Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska, now has an online video feature wherein she offers her opinions on various things, most of which deal with politics.

This week, though, she branched out, taping a review of the new Meryl Streep-Jeff Bridges film The Giver which, she notes, is based on the book of the same name. It's a perfectly serviceable review, centered very tightly on themes that Palin's fans will appreciate. (Spoiler: She liked it.)

But just how professional is her review? We are asking you to be the judge. We've taken a few quotes from Palin's review and a few quotes from professional movie reviewers, mixed them together, and made a quiz. Can you tell the difference? That's not a question from the quiz, that's the meta question about the quiz. (If that makes sense.)

Whatever, go take the quiz. We give it TWO STARS.
