Contest: Bolt goodies

posted by Nell Minow

Have a “Bolt” fan in your house? The first person to send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Bolt” in the subject line will get some “Bolt” goodies — a wall calendar and playing cards. I will also throw in another dog-movie-related treat. Good luck!

    M.M.
    Have you reviewed “Bolt” yet (I saw nothing in the list to the left)? I was all set to dismiss it as simply a quick ‘n easy holiday film so Mom & Dad can shop. But then I read a couple fo reviews that were far better than I expected. As one animation fan to another, what is your sense of “Bolt”? It may be one I go see with my college-aged kids. But I would like to know your thoughts first.

    You can always search for reviews in the search box or through the title index. I did review “Bolt” and it is here: http://blog.beliefnet.com/moviemom/2008/11/bolt.html
    If you get a chance, see it in 3D. It is amazing!

    OK, my face is crimson with embarassment. Not only did I read your review, I commented on it. Argh. My only excuse is feeble – I have had a cold for the past week and my head feels like it is in a mitten. OK, I will go see the movie – maybe even in 3-D. I hope my daughter is willing to go with her old man.

When Boredom Beats Mental Busywork
I love this tribute to boredom on car trips with children.  I well remember being in the back seat with my sisters, alternating games of GHOST and Botticelli with highway bingo and, yes, arguing with each other about who had to ride in the middle.  What will today's children remember about family
