  • Giveaway: Movie Ticket

    I won a movie ticket from a Dr. Pepper/Indiana Jones promotion, and I want to give it away to one of you! It’s a Fandango ticket, so you just go to their web site, enter your zip code to find a participating theater, and claim your ticket with the code that I will give to you.

    At least, I think that’s how it works. I’ve never used Fandango before, but it appears that the code will work for any movie that’s playing at an eligible theater. But I make no guarantees!

    So, here’s how you can enter to win: Simply leave a comment telling me what your favorite movie (or your child’s favorite movie) is and why.

    For an extra chance to win, subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and leave a separate comment telling me you have done so (or that you’re already subscribed).

    And for a third chance to win, write about this giveaway on your own site, then leave me a separate comment with a link to your post. It’s important that you leave a separate comment for each type of entry because each comment constitutes one entry.

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. PDT on Monday, July 7. I’ll use Random.org to generate a number that corresponds with the winning comment.

    The winner will be announced here on CFO. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize; otherwise a new winner will be randomly selected.

    One entry per type per person. Note that the ticket redemption code is not valid in VT, NE and NH. The code must be redeemed by 10/31/08.

    Good luck!

    8. My fave movie is Shrek. I’ve watched it SO MANY times and I never get tired out of it. I think it’s the child in me that awakens everytime I watch it. The message behind the movie strikes me too that prince charming in our life doesn’t have to be that handsome knight who will sweep us off our feet. True love sees an imperfect person perfectly even if they look like ummm, an ogre? ok that was an exaggeration.

    9. I can’t decide on one, so I’ll go with Toy Story. That’s for me, not my son. He’d probably say whatever’s the last movie he watched, I think it was Peter Pan.

    10. Melissa Amos says:

      I love Wall-E it is such a great movie.

    11. Shmully Litvin says:

      My favorite movie is always the next exciting movie to come out! Nothing beats the thrill of going to the movies and completely enjoying the movie. you go home satisfied, money well spent.

      My favorite movie of all time is Wizard of Oz and that is because when I was little it was a big production since it only came on once a year. It’s also one of the few movies that I can watch over and over and get something new out of it.
      Free movie tickets are good. It is so expensive for a family to just go to the movies anymore! It saddens me to think that there are some kids that just cannot go to the movies. Sad.

      My favorite movie is Terms of Endearment. I think it was the first real adult movie that I had seen. I saw it when I was dating my now husband. It touched me so much and I cried so much. Losing a family member is the absolute worst thing I’ve ever gone through and I think the film just resonates with me because of that.

    33. My favorite movie is Pirates of the Caribbean – Curse of the Black Pearl. I’m not big on watching movies over and over again, but something about watching Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp makes it very easy to watch more than once 🙂

    34. carolsue says:

      I just saw Indiana Jones and really liked it a lot. So I will say the Indiana Jones movies are my currents favs!

    35. Jacqueline in Atlanta says:

      My daughter just graduated from high school, but Beauty and the Beast is still her favorite. It always has been and she loves the music. When the Broadway cast came here to the Fox I took her to see it. They were amazing.

      Thanks for having the contest.

      I’m a movie junkie so there are sooooo many I love but right off the top of my head I’ll pick……. Jackie Brown .. this is one of my all time favorites, I could watch it over and over..

    37. My favorite movie is Overboard with Goldie Hawn and StepMom with Julia Roberts but my daughter’s favorite is 101 Dalmatians!
