Since the clue specifies a mug, the answer should require the correct film - especially since other movies in the franchise also involve quests for magic religious trinkets.

Oh man...only 37% for whiplash. Do yourselves a favor and rent that movie right now. It was incredible. The ending scene is so amazingly powerful and not a word is spoken. So good.

This is one of those quizzes that is significantly more work for the creator than the quiz taker.

'Babe' was filmed in Australia, but it's not set there. If anything, it's a fictionalised Britain.

Yeah that's true. I'm an Aussie and growing up, I didn't even realise it was an Australian movie. The accents certainly aren't.

The phrase "On Australia Farm" has 6 syllables, not 5. It should be fixed.

It depends if you say it "Aus-tray-lee-ah" or "Aus-tray-lya".

A lot of Aussie's say, "Straya" which would bring it down to 4 syllables

I don't think Babe is set on an Australian farm. Just filmed here. That confused me for a bit.

That was all I could think of. When I saw the intended answer it makes sense, and really I should have gotten it, but Swing Kids seems like it could work too.
