I get "trivia", but how would anyone know which movie topped the list exactly once?

Can’t speak for those who got it right, but for me, pulling a movie out of my backside that didn’t seem to have any big competition that week, but wouldn’t have any staying power. Since I was the only one to get it wrong, I looked it up and found my guess on a list and was about to comment as such — but then realized it was a weekly list, and apparently it never even hit the top once.

Almost all of the correct answers that were given, I’d have thought would have been multi-week #1s.

For me it was easy: I spend more time browsing BoxOfficeMojo than I care to admit.

Deadpool 2 was a total guess... well, more like just an answer I gave since I had to give something, and I'm surprised it was right. I would have thought it was on top for much longer than just one weekend.

Well that's why I came up with the question, most people know what movies had staying power, but how about the one-and-dones. This is a TD after all, think differently.

This was basically my thought process for a WAG - I figured Rampage could go #1 because of The Rock, but I did not think it was a multi-week #1 type film.

Not true. Dollarization is when a country adopts a foreign currency in place of their own, which may or may not be the US dollar. The US would not be a correct answer to this.

That being said, I have no clue which countries solely use the US dollar. :)

I'm perfectly okay with being marked wrong -- I had no clue which countries solely used USD other than, well, the U.S. (please don't tell my Global Finance instructor from last year), so I figured it wouldn't be the worst guess I'd make on this TD. It may not meet the dollarization requirement, but it does meet the "nation ONLY adopts the U.S. Dollar" requirement.

(Unless you're in northern New England. Growing up we had enough CAD coinage floating around it may as well have been a secondary currency.)

From a bystander - This is a real interesting nugget - and is also (part of) the reason I took a pass on this TD. I don't mind being the loser and getting 3 wrong with some educated and misguided guesses, but I was stonewalled on several of these.

Thanks for putting these out, and consider that some of us are enjoying them, even if we don't have the time or moxie to jump in!

That is correct, my apologies, it is a foreign country, so that is considered incorrect. I have updated the score. Once again my apologies. All is correct now!
