Flipped - A Movie Preview and Giveaway

You know how I am always writing movie reviews, well here is something completely different....a movie preview.  It's a movie called Flipped and it was directed by talented Rob Reiner.  It came out on DVD yesterday.  

I could try to explain that it's a story about young love, but I think this  trailer does it much better:

It looks cute and the young girl, played by Madeline Carroll has such a lovely, quietly expressive face.

I am fortunate to be able to offer a giveaway of the Flipped DVD.  All you have to do is write a comment about your first love.  It could be just a name, or maybe a moment or a special feeling.  Each comment gets you one entry for the giveaway.  If you cross promote on your blog or Facebook, you can get a second entry.  Just make sure you leave a second comment with what you've done.

Since this is a busy week-end for all of us, I will keep this contest open until Monday, November 29 at 12:00pm ET.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.

The Giveaway portion of this post is now closed.


  1. Looks like a cute movie. My "first" love was my first boyfriend. But then he cheated on me with another highschooler. Oh well, young love! Haha

  2. It's hard to believe, but I don't remember my "first" love... I believe I read the book on this one and would love to see the movie! Thanks for the chance!

  3. Better yet, my first kiss (kind of) was in Kindergarten. We were having our end of the year party and I was about to swing at the pinata. A boy ran up to me and kissed me on the cheek with grape candy in his mouth. I was mortified and to this day I hate (sorry Grandma, dislike) grape candy.

  4. I don't consider it love, but my first crush was in first grade.. We went to school together thru senior year and he never noticed me, and ended up dating my best friend for years instead.

    All that matters is I'm with the love of my life today :)


    promoted on FB :)

  6. Was this movie made from a book? if so, i think I've read it. I think it might have been a Black Eyed Susan book that my 8th graders had to read when i was teaching English many years back.

    Anyway, I married my first (true, real) love. He was robbing the cradle at the time, we were both bad ass. He was "waiting" for me to graduate from high school so we could go to college together. I'd kill my daughter if I ever heard such a line. But he really was. And we really did. We starting going out when I was 14. In January, it will have been 21 years since our first date - when he ripped up some daffodils from the subway station landscaping and met me for dinner at Roy Rogers and then to see Pet Cemetery.

  7. In kindergarten, I walked to school with a boy who wore a leg brace because of polio. Because we had to walk slow, we shared many stories and became best friends. Years past and we lost touch. I changed schools in my senior year of high school and imagine my surprise, seated next to him in my Geography class. Have no clue what happened to him but I always considered him my 1st boyfriend.

  8. Hi,
    I loved reading the other comments. Fun post!
    My first love was so long ago. I am not sure who it was technically but probably Clint in third grade who used to play "star wars" with me and my friend. He was blond, shy and cute as all get-out. I think I was way too fast for him. Ha.

  9. It seems this will be a good film, Lindalou. I always love a good "love story".

    Oh my... my first crush would be in order, and I can still remember the 2nd grade and Raymond. One day out of the blue, I told him I was going to kiss him; he ran down the stairs toward the school cafeteria and there was no place to go after that. I gave him a quick peck, but then I turned and ran. LOL I never did that again. I decided then to wait until junior high school.

  10. When I was 7 years old I loved the boy who lived down the street. Matthew King and I hung out with our arms around each other all the time. We played with matches behind his garage and luckily never burned it down. To this day I don't know who told on us but my mom was none to happy about it. It was the only time she pulled out the old wooden yardstick and took it to my behind.
