Shout About Movies is the must-have DVD party game that transforms an ordinary award show gathering into an unforgettable, extraordinary movie bash.

Shout About Movies will have all film fans - from movie aficionados to silver screen novices - shouting. It’s as simple as insert, play, shout!

Shout About Movies invites 4 to 40 players to compete in teams in a race to identify famous quotes, scenes and characters from major motion pictures. The game features “Shout Rounds,” where players yell out answers and “Whisper Rounds,” where teams huddle secretly to discuss strategies before giving an answer. Keeping players on the edge of their seats, the winner isn’t revealed until the last second in the final round. Scoring is calculated on screen using the remote control from a DVD player.
