To countdown the release of The Future of Us (November 21st!), Carolyn Mackler and I will give away one autographed Advance Reader’s Copy every week. Along with the autographed copy (signed by both of us), we’ll toss in another goodie that's book-related.
For our first giveaway, the bonus item is a DVD of Wayne’s World.
We'll randomly select one person who comments on this Future Friday post to receive both prizes. There’s no need to leave your email address, but do check back on Saturday to see if you’ve won.
This week, we want to know the title of your favorite movie released in 1996. To help you recall which movies came out fifteen years ago, just click here and scroll down to the alphabetized list. You don’t need to tell us why it’s your favorite, but if you feel like telling us, we’d love to know. If you haven’t seen any of these films (seriously?), tell us which one you most want to see…and then go see it!
Here are our selections:
JAY: The Hunchback of Notre Dame was the first movie my wife and I saw together. It wasn’t a date, another one of her guy friends came with us (Hey, Jodi!), but it makes this movie my obvious choice.
CAROLYN: I'd have to say Fargo, even though the scene where they're stuffing a body into the woodchipper still haunts me. But a pregnant cop Midwestern Frances McDormand was so...perfect. Oh, and maybe Flirting with Disaster, too. I'm a sucker for romantic comedies. I saw that one with my mom at a theater in NYC.
