My Very First Giveaway! Win "Stand by Me" on DVD!



Wow I am quick ain't I? lol I couldn't stand waiting too long to host my very first giveaway. I have been so lucky to win several giveaways myself, that I want to spread the joy! This film is a fantastic one and if you have never seen it, I highly recommend it! It's a goodie! For those who do not know anything about this film here is a brief description for you by Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide. Also included is a movie trailer for you to see.

"Based on the Stephen King short story The Body, Rob Reiner's easygoing nostalgia piece is set in Castle Rock, OR, over Labor Day weekend, 1959. A quartet of boys, inseparable friends all, set out in search of a deadbody that one of the boys overhears his brother talking about. The foursome consists of intellectual Gordie (Wil Wheaton), born leader Chris (River Phoenix), emotionally disturbed Teddy (Corey Feldman), and chubby hanger-on Vern (Jerry O'Connell). The boys' adventures en route to the elusive body are colored by the personal pressures brought to bear on all of them by the adult world. Richard Dreyfuss, playing the grown-up Gordie, narrates the film, while Kiefer Sutherland dominates every scene he's in as a brutish high-school bully."



About the Giveaway!

The Winner of the Contest will be emailed and have 72 hours to respond,

I saw it in the theater when it came out, and I was a kid, and I loved it. I'd like to win it because I think that my kids would enjoy it also (except for the leech scene maybe..lol..), and I would like to see it again too.

Yes I have seen this movie before and enjoyed it. Here's a funny fact that happens at the very end of the movie (and doesn't give away the plot). After finishing typing in the computer, the character simply turns off the computer - he didn't save what he had writtten!!!! I am sure that has happened to many people sometime, but I was surprised that they didn't catch it in the movie!! We always exclaim over that part!
