Confession: I never really liked The Smurfs.
Growing up, most of my school friends seemed to collect them, and it was considered pretty cool to have a Smurf T-shirt.
But I was probably too busy reading my stash of Enid Blyton books to watch the Smurfs. Yep, I was nerdy even back then.
However, when the kids and I saw the preview of long-awaited Smurfs movie at the cinemas recently, I have to admit it looked really quite good.
This time around, the little blue characters seem much cuter, and the trailer looked funny. And it stars Neil Patrick Harris and Sophie Vergara among others, so the acting should be good.
So I was thrilled when Sony Pictures Australia sent me two double passes to the preview of The Smurfs for this weekend, so I could review it with the kids.
Except that the screening is at 2.30 pm on Father's Day (September 4), and my wee ones will, understandably, be with their Dad.
So I asked Sony Pictures if I could share the love, and give the passes to one of my lovely followers so they can enjoy a family movie on Father's Day. And they said yes!
Now, the screening is at the Event Cinemas Chermside, at the Westfield Shopping Centre. Sunday September 4 at 2.30 pm.
The catch is you must live in Brisbane - or be able to get here - so I can give you the tickets, and you can attend the movie.
If you'd like to win, just leave a comment below. Good luck!
And if you'd like to watch the trailer and check out the official website, you can do it here.
