First, can you accept Glenda? I knew it was close. If not, that's okay - they are 2 different names. Second, "Pi" is not a number. "Pi" is two letters - a number would be 3.14159(etc). I would equate this to saying "x" or "n" or "e" are numbers - they can stand for numbers, but they aren't in and of themselves numbers.

For me, Glenda and Glinda are pronounced exactly the same and are merely two variant spellings of the same name - the same as Mary and Merry or Jeffrey and Geoffrey.
+1

Not at all the same - Jeffrey and Geoffrey are alternative spellings of the same name, but Mary and Merry or Glinda and Glenda are not the same in any accent. They may be subtle for some, but there are differences. That's like saying Kristy and Kirsty are the same... No.

You're technically right about Pi, but Darren Aronofsky only has a handful of films to his credit, so if you know the director, there's a good chance you'll get it (that's how I figured it out anyway), but if you don't know the director, you probably couldn't figure it out even if the clue were reworded.

But...but...'Pi' represents a specific number, albeit an endless one, where 'x' or 'n' are variables and can represent any number at all. Saying 'Pi' isn't a number is like saying 'fifty' isn't a number.

The movie isn't actually called, "Pi," it's called "π." The Latin letters were used because, of course, nobody could type the Greek. If you look at the movie's box, the letters "PI" are never used. So, because the title is really the Greek letter, it is indeed a number, and not a word.

level 68

Like you said, it is first a Greek LETTER, which happens to be used as a number. You could also argue that μ is a unit. Well, it is, but also derived from the Greek alphabet. So maybe the clue should say the movie has a Greek letter as its title.

I missed Pi too, but I don't think there's anything wrong with the clue. It's difficult, but do we really only want easy answers in these quizzes? I'm sure if I knew who Aronofsky was, I'd have had a much better chance of getting it. That's my 1/50 of a dollar. :D

Glinda will work now and of course Pi is a number. As @LarryLovage pointed out below, I'm sure this disappointed the many people who tried typing 1,2,3, etc...

Just because pi is used to represent a specific number does not make it any more of a number than e (2.718), phi (1.618), or i (the square root of -1). They're all letters used to represent a constant (in some cases irrational or imaginary)... but letters nonetheless. BTW, "Pi" is one messed up movie... much like the rest of Aronofsky's directorial offerings.

They are letters representing numbers, while 1, 2, 3 etc are numerals, representing numbers. With progress of mathematics an extension of writing system was needed, that's all.

I'm with keeping Glinda, and I thought the Aronofsky was an excellent clue. People who don't know what it is want to type in 1,2,3,4,5, se7en, thirteen (xiii) until they get the right answer, whatever it is.

I want to say I really thought Dread Pirate Roberts was just the bitcoin/dark web criminal, but thinking about it I got the right answer. I'd simply forgotten where he'd got his name from.

I wasn't really thinking when I saw the Dread Pirate Roberts clue, and at first I tried typing Pirates of the Caribbean, which gave me Pi. Then I remembered it was Princess Bride. I love freebies.

My first guess for the "Valentine's Day" clue was "Knocked Up"...would have made for a more fun concept IMO. Also too bad "Bill Clay" wasn't accepted for "Die Hard" :)

The clue for Pi needs to be changed. The clue asks for a number specifically, and "Pi" is a word, even if it represents a number, it still is not a number.

Pi (π) is certainly a number. The only question is are you a 22/7 person or more of the 355/113 type? Both only give approximations. Since writing it in decimal form requires an infinite sequence, the only way to write the exact number is to write π or pi.

That's like saying that the symbol '4' is not a number - it represents a number but it isn't a number in itself, same as 'pi'

When in doubt, type The Princess Bride. It ALWAYS shows up on these movie quizzes. Also, Hans Gruber was an answer in the Villains quiz just two days ago. I'm starting to long for a bit more variety on Jet Punk... (What's that? Go make your own quizzes if you're not happy? Fair point.)
