About This Quiz

Are you a fan of movies with a drug-related plot? Do you consider yourself an aficionado of this type of movie? Take this quiz to find out how much you really know about famous drug movies.

Drug films are big business for Hollywood movie makers. This type of movie combines a host of necessary elements for success in theaters, including drama, death, suspense, and even a bit of sympathy. For the most part, a good drug movie keeps the viewer on the edge of his or her seat for the duration of the film.

Hollywood has made big bucks off of drug movies. If you consider classics such as "Blog," "Trainspotting," "Drugstore Cowboy," "Traffic," and "Scarface," you'll understand what we're talking about. And, although drug movies remain popular with viewers, some have even attained cult status, they are rarely big box office earners. 

In fact, "Blow," a movie about Cocaine starring Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, which received mixed reviews, earned less than twice its budget upon release. However, another drug movie cult classic, "Trainspotting," earned nearly 50 million pounds from a 1.5 million pound budget. Guess these drug movies are difficult to gauge.
