Fun family viewing, just add popcorn

My children like old movies, which is kind of cool, because I get to re-watch some films I love when I was their age. But it’s also kind of frustrating, because back when I was a kid, the PG-13 rating didn’t exist, which means that a PG movie from back then may well be something that would garner a PG-13 rating, today, and I have to try to figure out what’s appropriate.

Enter the Dove Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping families find entertainment suitable for the entire family. They do this a lot of different ways (see their website for more info), but one of the things they’re doing is releasing double-feature DVDs of “Dove Approved” family movies. And I have a bunch of them to give away!

Today’s contest gives you the choice between an animated collection or a live-action collection. The animated collection includes All Dogs Go To Heaven/All Dogs Go To Heaven 2, Thumbelina/Once Upon a Forest, and Robots/Little Robots: Reach for the Sky. The live-action collection includes Aquamarine/Material Girls, The Sandlot/Rookie of the Year, and Agent Cody Banks/Catch That Kid. Two different prize packs, each containing 3 DVDs for a total of 6 great family-friendly movies.

Want to win? First go read the contest rules and regulations and then come back here and leave me a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, April 29th, 2009 telling me which pack you want to win in order to be entered. I’ll use my trusty random number generator to select two winners, as always. Make sure you pick one of the two packs, because if you don’t, your entry will be invalid. (I generate two numbers. The first number wins their pick. The second number wins their pick as long as the first number didn’t already win it. If that one is already gone, though, I pick another number.) (Pick, pack, pick, pack, ACK.)

Clear as mud? Yes? Go!
