FREE MOVIE SCREENING!

Just this past Friday, I was one of the winners of a giveaway at Latina On A Mission! She was giving away free passes for a free movie screening to the first people who commented on her post, and if you were able to visit one of the theaters in certain cities/states. I was so excited to get her email with the free printable pass. It was good for four people, and for a showing the next day at 10am. I knew my two older kids wouldn't wake up to get there early because I planned on getting there at 9am since it was first come first serve, regardless if you had a pass. My youngest son Danny was still sick, so it was just Eli, Veronica, and myself. We were one of the first people there, so I was happy about that, plus it was inside of a mall so I was able to get them McDonald's for breakfast while we waited in line. I couldn't imagine them eating popcorn and candy at 10am!

But, I wanted to say that we really enjoyed the movie. It's rare to watch a "kids" movie these days that does not have at least a couple of bad words (even though it's rated PG), and also without any sexual innuendos. It was just fun, clean humor, and I will take my other son when it comes out in the theaters.

It comes out next week, so if you are looking for a movie to watch with your kids, I highly recommend this one.

**And this is just my opinion. I'm not getting paid for writing a review for this.**

Thanks for sharing your opinion. The Midge wants to see it, so now I know it's appropriate for her.

Movies with good, clean humour are hard to find these days. I'm definitely going to watch this with my boys.

Happy Monday Alicia!

Thanks Alicia...silly kid movies are right up our alley! Even though our nest is empty, we don't watch movies other than "clean ones" so recommendations are appreciated!

If nothing else, you can count on any Brendan Fraser movie for some action and laughs...

Nice to know! I, too, am tired of "kids" movies that are filled with bad language. Nice to hear that there is one out there that is not too bad!

I'm glad to hear that the humor was clean...sadly, that seems to be uncommon anymore!

Sara said...

Alicia, I wanted to thank you for being a part of my first year of blogging! What a wonderful year it has been. I'm throwing a little party and as an honored guest, I would love for you to stop by and share a highlight of your year with all of us.

Yes, I like some of the movies of Brendan Fraser..

Erin said...

I just adore Brendan Fraser...he never takes himself too seriously and always seems to enjoy the work he does. Glad to hear that this one was a fun one, too. Congrats to you guys for winning those tickets and making a long morning out of it.

Ms. Latina said...

I am so glad that you enjoyed the movie! I thought it was hilarious as well =)

Dani Joy said...

What a fun great deal! two awesome things... movie and Mc Ds breakfast! we can´t get those here. miss em. (well on occasion of course)

I think I will wait to see the movie in English though. I can´t get the spanish humor sometimes and when it´s translated humor it´s totally different. jeje

well, see you.. oh guess what? WE are coming to N. Cali in later October!! I want to try to get to see you and your family. Lord willing. What do you think?
