Freebie Friday: Win movie tickets to My One and Only


I mean KEVIN BACON. Same excitement factor, no? If you don't fancy getting footloose with him, then maybe a Big dose of Chris Noth gets your heart racing instead?

This week's Freebie Friday gives you the chance to win free tickets to see My One and Only, a comedy film with a jazz soundtrack that will be the perfect antidote to a long working week.

My One and Only is inspired by the incidents in the life of actor and Hollywood icon George Hamilton. This breezy 1950s journey follows the refined and enchanting Ann Deveraux (Renee Zellweger), who packs up her life, including two teenage sons, buys a Cadillac convertible and embarks on a cross-country trip to get away from philandering, society bandleader Dan (Kevin Bacon). Ann's goal: to find herself a new husband. Yet what this unconventional family discover is something altogether more wonderful.

Two in-season double passes to see My One and Only (now screening around Australia)

There are FIVE double passes to win.

This is a quick competition open for four days only (entries close on Tuesday), so enter now!

All you have to do is fulfil the requirements below:
  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell us: How do you like your bacon?

  2. And then send an email to grabyourforkfreebiefriday@yahoo.com.au with the subject heading "Bacon" and include your full name and a copy of your published comment from this post.

  3. Please include your postal address address details so your tickets can be mailed to you asap should you win!

The winning entries will be decided on honesty or entertainment value. Don't be shy! You gotta be in it to win it! Readers may submit one entry per day as long as each answer is different.

The One and Only competition closes on Tuesday 16 March 2010 at 5.30pm AEST. The winner will be announced on Grab Your Fork on Wednesday 17 March 2010.

    Streaky bacon, done in the oven until crisp, with a drizzle of maple syrup. YUM.

    just looking at the picture with Chris North in it just echo "This is not big, this is HUGE!" in my head.. ... definiteily guilty of too much sydney metro commercial radio consumption.

    I'd have to say with Bill's ricotta hotcakes and plenty of maple syrup.. YUM! Having said that, is there a bad way to have bacon??

    There is absolutely nothing better than extra crispy bacon.

    You know you have it right when you get that crunch and a rush of saltiness in your mouth.

    From hidden bacon gems in ceasar salad to that differing texture with your fluffy scrambled eggs in the morning, Bacon my dear - is the bomb.

    Crispy, meaty and plentyful!

    Ah the taste of Bacon: Bacon fried and crispy wrapped around a juicy medium rare steak; or diced and salty sprinkled on top of a baked salmon steak on potato mash.

    Thanks, Helen! I'm really looking forward to the numnums.

    I'm going to buck the trend and say not crispy. I love it cooked when it is still moist and glistening.

    Crunchy pork? - leave that for pork crackling.

    Caramelised bacon on French Toast drenched in maple syrup - the breakfast of champions!
