I Watched Both Movies 3,000 Times

by Sherry Riter in BlogFrog,Product


Redbox, America’s destination for movies with more than 27,000 locations nationwide, wants to know, “What’s your family’s most watched movie and how many times have you watched it?” Just for answering that question, two families will have a chance to win $10,000 as part of the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes!

Does anyone want an extra $10,000?

Before you win (I am thinking positively for you), let me tell you about my two favorite movies. When Brittany and Alyssa were a young girls, I worked from home, but not always during the daytime hours because I was busy being a stay-at-home-mom. Three days a week, after they both went to bed, I would forgo sleeping and work through the night.

It was very quiet and boring without their company.

I couldn’t stand it THAT quiet, so I would slip in a movie. Not just any movie, but one of my two favorites – A Mirror Has Two Faces with Jeff Bridges and Barbara Streisand orCrossing DeLancey with Amy Irving and Peter Riegert. The movies would play through the night over and over again.

Crossing Delancey AND The Mirror Has Two Faces

Sometimes I also watched the movies during the day or just kept them running in the background ALL day long because they were beautiful love stories and I’m a HOPELESS romantic – obviously. I never got tired of watching either movie even though I watched them both about 3,000 times apiece.

I heard you gasp.

I know that is a big number and seems almost crazy, but I really love those movies!

Are you okay now?

You weren’t eating, drinking or chewing gum were you? I’d hate to be the cause of you choking.

Good! No choking hazards!
