Two great things: A close shave and a great movie

By Mir
July 28, 2008
Category Contests

Don’t ask me why these things go together; they just do. Because they’re both great, and because the YouCast folks are feeling mighty generous.

Here’s the deal: Schick has recently introduced the Quattro Titanium, a razor that will give you an incredibly close shave and make you feel really manly. (Um, unless you’re a woman, in which case you’ll just have to settle for the close shave.) They’ve also got this fun Trim Flixx site going to let you make goofy movies about the joys of shaving, too. That’s a fun way to kill some time.

In addition, you may have noticed Journey to the Center of the Earth is out in theaters right now, and YouCast is running the Race to the Center! game site to tie-in with the movie and provide a handy little distraction while you’re at work.

Why does any of this matter to you? Because YouCast is going to give away the following to some lucky Want Not readers: One $20 Fandango gift certificate (redeemable for any Fandango-eligible movie tickets, not just Journey), and two Schick Titanium razors.

Want to win? To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern (noon Pacific) on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008. Winners to be determined by random number generation and manly stubble, but mostly that random number thing. The first winner will receive the Fandango certificate, and the next two winners will get free razors. One entry per person, valid email address required, please be courteous and turn off your cell phone while in the theater.

Ready? Go!


  1. I love movies and my hubby could use some new razors! :0) Thanks!

  2. Love movies and a close shave. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Odd combo– but love the free movies!

  4. Sweet! Count me in!

  5. We love a good boy movie in our house…and the close shave would be a bonus.

  6. Cellphone off!

  7. But is it ok to twitter on your iphone while in the theater? Or drool while your friend does so?

  8. If I win the razors, I can shave enough to see the movie! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I want to win!!

  10. Ok, that’s too good to pass up. Although my stubble is quite feminine.

  11. We take our kids to the movies all the time… pick me…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I love using my Hubby’s razors ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. I could really use a movie outing, but a close shave would nice too!

  14. can’t wait for HP in Nov

  15. I’m not ashamed to admit that I am woman with some serious man stubble. Still, every year they come out with a new razor that’s supposed to be an improvement over the last one. Just how close can a shave get? Dave Barry once wrote that one day they’ll come up with a razor that has so many blades, it can reach back in time and shave your ancestors.
    PS: Pick me. I need a couple of movie tickets BAD.

  16. Why not? I shave.

  17. Me, me, me, me!! (Please)

  18. My daughter wouldn’t have to tell my beloved that he has a “hairy face” any longer!

  19. Haven’t been to movie in ages and would love to have a close sheve on my hairy Italian legs.

  20. I’m always up for a good shave – and some movie tickets!

  21. Hello, clean-shaved husband.

  22. My legs (and husband) beg you to pick me ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. While I would love a movie outing, having a close shave would be pretty great too!

  24. Ooooh, I love to go to the movies. My escape!!=)

  25. A clean-shaven hubbie and a movie date, yippie!

  26. Count me in!!!

  27. Interesting combo. I’m game, though! I cannot bring manly stuble, but I can supply leg stubble. TMI? Sorry.

  28. OOooooh Movies and Shaving! Yeay!

  29. ooh, this would be awesome, either way. thanks Mir!

  30. A movie! For only the cost of a babysitter! And razors for the next time I can see my legs. What more could I ask for?

  31. I need a shave! (Movie wouldn’t be bad either, heh heh.)

  32. Sounds good to me!

  33. I’ll throw my name in the hat–I’ve always found that men’s razors give the best shave anyway!

  34. My hubby needs the razor to shave his head and I need the tickets to get the heck outa my house:)

  35. Well, why not? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If I win the razor, perhaps I’ll make a documentary film about shaving.

  36. That sounds awesome! Thanks, Mir.

  37. Thanks Mir. Date night… will be awesome!

  38. Oh man I’d love to hit the movies…or just get a free razor. Great combo!

  39. Yeah! Hope we win!

  40. Yes please! Thanks!

  41. Sounds good to me!

  42. A clean shaven husband would be better than the movie!

  43. Great Give-A-Way!! Enter me in, please.

  44. This sounds great! Thanks!

  45. Sign me up!

  46. Hey….no pointing out my stubble. ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. I just got rid of my manly stubble, but it’s coming right back.

  48. This is my lucky number.

  49. I want to win!

  50. ooh, Fandango!

  51. Sweet!

  52. sounds good!

  53. Sounds like something I would like!

  54. Would be great!

  55. Eventually I gotta win!

  56. Why not?

  57. I do have very manly stubble on my legs at the moment. I’m sure my husband would appreciate me winning a razor!

  58. Thanks Mir!

  59. Count me in!

  60. Come on lucky 58!

  61. Oh please pick me!!

  62. Count me in!

  63. pick me! pick me!

  64. Ready to go!

  65. We hardly ever go to movies at our house due to the cost, so this would be a fantastic prize for my long-suffering kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. Oh me please!

  67. I love movies…and shaving too! (Well, maybe not so much on the shaving. But…with new razors…anything’s possible!)

  68. sounds great to me!

  69. Maybe a new razor will be more gentle on my legs?

  70. Shave & a movie! Two bits! ๐Ÿ˜€

  71. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  72. Love these contests!

  73. Mir, you just have the best giveaways!! Love em, love em, love em!!

  74. You’re so pretty, Mir!

  75. I understand a combo like frosties and fries, but a movie and razor? Guess one might have to try it out to find the allure.

  76. Me please!

  77. Haven’t shaved my legs in months, and it’s nearly two hours to the closest movie theater. I’m in!

  78. so fun!!

  79. Awesome!

  80. Sure, why not?

  81. Sounds like fun!

  82. Hopefully this would serve as motivation for Hubby to shave with a razor, rather than the electric. Oh, baby!

  83. this is a wacky one, but I’m in!! thanks Mir

  84. I have some pretty manly stubble on my legs right now. I’d love to win.

  85. Everytime we go to to buy movie tickets, I always giggle at saying the name. It’s funny. Really. FAN-DANG-O.

  86. Here’s my shot at winning.

  87. I’d like to win……..but the discount code was great too!!

  88. pick me…pick me!!!

  89. Movies! Movies! Movies!
    (Fingers Crossed!)

  90. Hey – I could put either of these gifts to great use!!

  91. Who cares about the hubby, guy razors work better on my armpits anyways ๐Ÿ™‚

  92. Woohoo! Either of these prizes would be great ๐Ÿ™‚

  93. Does this mean I have to shave my legs before I go to the movies?

  94. Love you, Mir!

  95. My husband has more than his share of the manly stubble thing going on. Winning this would make my skin very happy.

  96. Yay! Either a free movies with my stubbly man, or staying at home watching tv with my freshly-shaved man!

  97. I like to win stuff.

  98. I’m going to be completely honest here. If I win the tickets, I’ll take my hubby along, but if I win a razor he’s going to have to arm wrestle me for it.

  99. Cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

  100. Let me know when I win!

  101. Count me in too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. All I need now is a babysitter and we’ve got a great night!

  140. Movies are good. Little Man in starting to love the theatre.

  141. Awesome! I am dying to go see Dark Knight but I can’t justify the expense of movie tickets and a baby sitter. If I can get the tickets covered then I could convince my hubby to let me get a babysitter.

  142. I’m Greek. That should make the random number generator show me a little mercy. I AM HAIRY!!

  143. Free stuff! Count me in!

  144. Woo! I’ve never won one of these before .. maybe this is my lucky day?

  145. I’ll even shave before I go to the movies.

  153. Ooh – I love movies and my fiance is always in need of new razors!

  154. Goes well with the Wallace & Gromit “A Close Shave,” you know?

  155. I think I actually want the razor more than the Fandango money – I mean really, $20 will get you 2 hours of fun for two people, but just think how far a good close shave will go….boy, that really didn’t sound like it was intended.

  156. I only have womanly stubble – but I’d prefer the razor, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  157. Count me in. Movies or furless legs…either is a winner here.

  158. I can’t wait to see the new Batman. Sign me up.

  162. Sadly, I have more manly stubble than I’d care to admit…

  163. Hee, hee Heather! I was going to make some joke about manly stubble starting to appear once you’re in your 40s. Guess I don’t have to now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  164. Could definately use a night out at the movies!
