Secrets of the Mountain – giveaway!

MS&L has been very generous, provided items to review and every now and then something to offer my faithful readers (as many as there are out there).  They recently sent me a copy of “Secrets of the Mountain” and some Orville Redenbacher popcorn (because what tv movie is complete without popcorn?)

Here’s the description of the movie, which airs April 16, 2010 on NBC at 8 PM.

Somewhere between the demands of her career, her ex’s wedding and her kids’ busy schedules, Dana James is noticing her tight-knit family starting to unravel.  An unexpected offer to purchase her family’s mountain property sets up a weekend road trip, which she hopes will bring her family back together.  But when they arrive, they quickly learn that the mountain is much more than it seems.  An ancient secret and a treacherous quest will test the family like never before.  It’s an edge-of the-seat thriller that reminds us that when times are tough, families don’t run away from problems – they run back to each other.

Yes, it may sound a little cheesy, or a bit like a Lifetime movie, but it also sounds like something I’d probably watch.  A little family drama, some scary mountain adventures, and I’m guessing a good ol’ happy ending.  Plus, I like popcorn and I’ll take any excuse I can get to eat a bag by myself.

Come to think of it, Travis has plans Friday night, which means he can’t make fun of the movie while I’m watching!

The movie is “brought to you” by Walmart and P&G, and I guess in a way Orville Redenbacher.  The soundtrack was produced by Randy Jackson, which somehow makes the whole thing cheesily thrilling to me.

So, here’s the giveaway part: from now until after the movie airs (10 PM April 16th), tell me what you like to put on your popcorn.  I’m a big fan of butter and salt, but I also like a concoction of butter, lemon juice, brown sugar, and chili powder.

If you’re chosen (randomly), you get your very own DVD of the movie AND the soundtrack CD (produced by Randy Jackson!) 

CD Soundtrack by Randy Jackson Includes Tracks from Today’s Hottest Stars and Emerging Artists like Jordin Sparks, Alisan & Ilsey, Paper Tongues, Kevin Hammond, The Afters, Brooke White, Lona Heins and more.

Now, if you don’t win and you’re really sad and you happened to miss the movie on tv, don’t fret because you can buy the DVD/soundtrack bundle at Walmart.  While you’re there, you could also pick up some Proctor & Gamble (P&G) stuff, too, I guess.

  1. My boyfriend introduced me to the fine art of putting Laura Scudder’s ranch dip mix onto popcorn (with butter, too, of course). No salt needed, as the dip mix has it already. I just shake a little bit on to taste, but it is pretty darn good!

  2. That movie is something I would watch on a Saturday afternoon when there’s nothing good on. Although I don’t have anything other than kettle corn now, I used to love to put the cheese powder from boxed Mac & Cheese on popcorn. I know that sounds really weird but it was the best way I knew how to make cheesy popcorn cheaply.

    • The last time we were in Amish country, I picked up a bag of bright orange cheese powder and used it on popcorn! Then I forgot about it, it solidified into a brick and Travis made me toss it. It was really tasty, though!
