Despicable Me Giveaway

There are many things I love about summer. One of my favorite summer activities is heading to the movie theater and catching a family friendly film with the kiddos.

If you are looking for a fun and family friendly film to watch this summer, check out Despicable Me, which opens Friday, July 9th. The film stars Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, and Julie Andrews. 

Here is a brief synopsis of the film:
In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

I can’t wait to watch this movie. My kiddos have seen the trailer and have been asking me at least once a day if today is the day we will be heading to the movie theater.

It’s giveaway time!

    I would love to see this "Despicable Me" because my boys ages 5 & under laugh hysterically every time they see the commercial.

  6. SHAINA WILSON says:

    My daughter wants to see this movie super bad!! She runs around our house saying, "Is this annoying??" & makes that sound, like the little girl in the previews… LOL. We would LOVE to win this prize & see the movie!!

  7. Lori Page says:

    We all want to see this movie! We would love to win tickets! otherwise we usually wait till it comes out on video…

  8. Danenne says:

    Our family would be so grateful if you would pick us to see this movie. We have loved everything about it from the moment we saw the trailer the very first time months ago, to recently with all the advertisement about it we've seen lately. Unfortunately we going through a severe financial hardship, after I was layed off two years ago and haven't been able to find work. Then in the last year, my husband's contract with the Marine Corps ended, after 23 yrs of service and they would not allow him another contract, so now we are both unemployed and currently without any income whatsoever. Our children would be extremely grateful, as would we, to have the opportunity to see this awesome movie! Thank you for your consideration!

  9. Lindsay says:

    My kids have already been quoting the movie! We leave for vacation the next day so if we wouldn't get to see it for awhile if we didn't see it the night before it came out. As always lovin you site!

  10. zoopunk says:

  14. Hgascon says:

    this looks like such a funny, cute movie and my two kids have been talking about it nonstop since seeing the previews. I can't wait to see it.

  15. Kathleen Switzer says:

  16. Kim says:

    This stay-at-home mom loves Steve Carell! My eight-year-old son has a great sense of humor and is always up for a comedy. We're only a 15 minute drive from the premiere too. πŸ™‚

  17. AD says:

    I would love to watch this movie with my daughter, it is the first movie in her lifetime she seems to have fallen in love with :)she always points and asks 'mommy what this?' and goes 'i want this' whenever she sees the trailer πŸ™‚ this is the first time she has shown so much interest in a movie and I would love to treat her to this!

  18. Susie says:

    My two kids can't wait for this movie to come out. My son loves the villains, to name the few – Darth Vader, Darth Sith, Captain Hook. Now with Dispicable Me, I think he is going to in love with the character. As a parent, I think the villain character in this movie has a good side of him, plus it looks really funny πŸ˜€

  19. Michael says:

    We would love to see this movie, especially with the kids. Our 5yr old daughter has never been to a movie theater. If we win these tickets, "Despicable Me" would be her first movie theater experience!
    BTW, I already like you in Facebook and follow you on Twitter.

  20. Mommy says:

    My 4-year old on watching the trailer here for the umpteenth time says, "Mom, that's the funniest movie ever. Can we please go watch it in the movie theater? Thanks for showing me this, you're the best Mommy ever."

  21. carolyn says:

    Would love to take my family out to see this. Looks really good and money has been tight so we haven't been out in awhile.

  22. yvettes32 says:

    I would love to win tickets to see the movie. I have to work odd hours to make ends meet so I dont spend much time with my kids. This would be a great opportunity to spend some quality family time together. My little ones have been asking to see the movie when it comes out.

  23. Janette says:

    We would love to see this movie!! We usually tend to fast forward through commericals if we are watching something recorded, but we always stop to watch the previews. The little girl with the pink hat reminds me of my daughter Sammie, and we've all adopted her saying, "It's so fluffy I wanna die!" about anything that remotely fits. We have to see the movie!! πŸ™‚

  24. Una Mama Feliz says:

  27. The Lee's says:

    At first I thought, "I am so not going to take the kids to see this movie because of the title." Then when I actually watched a commerical for it….I CAN NOT WAIT to see it! I love the concept and it is nice to have a change!

  28. Annie Cole says:

    it's been a while since I've seen a movie period so this would be perfect for a family fun day. I've seen all the trailers and really want to watch this movie.

  29. Susan says:

    My kids are really looking forward to this movie comming out. We haven't really gone to the movies much this summer, between money problems (like everyone else I'm sure) and moving, its been a little nuts. We would really get a kick out of it if we were pick. And on a parent note, I really like movies that show how kids can really change your life. Haven't seen this movie, but it looks like it changes a bad guy to a good guy. KIDS ARE AMAZING ON HOW THEY CHANGE EVERYWAY ONE LOOKS AT LIFE.
