Kevin Smith has never claimed to be one of the great filmmakers, but he has built up a considerable filmography as a director, writer and occasional actor. And how Employees III marks the end of a trilogy (read my full review here) so this week’s quiz marks the life and work of our second favorite actor and director named Kevin. You know the routine, it’s the weekend, so please enjoy 30 questions (“In a row?”) on topics ranging from Smith movies to non-Smith movies.

If you have completed all three rounds, there is a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores of 30 points this week!) and give us any other nice feedback. Snootchie Bootchies!
