Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*

I love sitting down with Jon and Avery and watching a good family movie! Besides cartoons they really are few and far between for her age. 
But when I got the chance to review the Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life DVD I jumped at the chance after watching the trailer! I couldn't wait to get this movie and review it. 

We watched this movie the day after we received it. It's a great family movie and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. 
We are movie enthusiasts. With a 160" screen in our living room and surround sound, it's hard to not love movies as much as we do! So this movie was just like watching it at the theaters!
A little about the movie
It releases March 6th to DVD!!
About Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life

  • Based on the beloved children’s novel by Wendy Mass, Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life is a family-friendly adventure film starring Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino and Emmy Award® winner Joe Pantoliano.

  • Beginning March 6, 2012, Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life will be available on DVD, on demand and in digital release.

  • The adventure takes them from flea markets to science museums, and the duo meet an assortment of wacky and interesting characters along the way.  Each encounter unlocks a clue, bringing them closer to finding out just what’s in the box – and ultimately the greatest secret of them all!

Tired of all the movies that are for "families" but not really appropriate, this sounds like good, clean fun!
