Fandango and Cars 2 {Review and Giveaway}

Our family does not go out to the movies very often but when something comes out that one of us really wants to see we will go to the theater to see it. Cars 2 was one of those movies. Every time a commercial for the movie would come on TV, Jacob (my 3 year old) would tell me he wanted to watch it.

I recently downloaded the Fandango application on my mobile phone which makes going to the movies a little easier. From my phone I can search for movie times and theater locations, read reviews of movies, and even order my tickets. Normally I would read the reviews of movies if it’s a movie I want to see but if it’s a children’s movie I don’t read the reviews. I loved the convenience of the application. I looked up movie times for Cars 2 and bought my tickets while sitting in a hospital waiting room. To learn more about how easy it is to use the Fandango mobile application you can view my ThisMoment story.

Right now Fandango is running a fun promotion for Cars fans! When you buy your tickets on Fandango you get a FREE iTunes download of the Tokyo Mater short film from Pixar. That’s a great added bonus for something we were going to purchase anyways :)

This was Jacob’s first time seeing a movie in a movie theater. I was worried that he wouldn’t sit through the whole thing but he sat through all of it until the last ten minutes or so when he wanted to stand and try climbing over the seats in front of us. He said that he liked the movie and as soon as it was over he said he wanted to watch it again. I thought the movie was good but I liked the first one more. I think the first one was geared towards younger children and the new movie is for older children. The storyline was a little too complex for a three year old and some of the material was, in my opinion, a little inappropriate for younger viewers.


One lucky reader will win a pair of tickets from Fandango to the movie of their choice.
