'Motherhood' movie: DVDs to be won

First there was Christmas Eve, and now there is Mother's Day Eve - whatever next?!

To promote the release of new movie 'Motherhood', starring Uma Thurman and Minnie Driver – Asda, Mums.net and Metrodome Distribution are launching a new date for the diary - Mother's Day Eve. As you might expect, this will fall on Saturday 13th March, the night before Mothering Sunday, 14th March 2010.

'Motherhood' follows mum Eliza Welch (Thurman) and the chaos of her day trying to prepare for her daughter's sixth birthday party. The main character is a former fiction writer-turned-mom-blogger with her own site, “The Bjorn Identity.” (all sounds very familiar to more than a few of us I should think - except for the fact that we are trying to become fiction writers).

If you'd like a copy of the movie on DVD (available from 8th March) please leave a comment below with your email or Twitter address. Three winners will be selected at random from the list.

You can also log onto www.motherhoodmovie.com for downloadable Mother's Day Eve pampering vouchers and further details about the film.
Good luck.
Thanks to everyone who entered: this competition is now closed and the winners were Jen, Bumbling Along and Muddy No Sugar.

  10. once this is playing on everyone's DVDs I just know my phone will start aringing - Hollywood just dying to make a movie about my blog. I have already got it sorted out - Kate Winslet as me and Owen Wilson as my hubby. Who will play you and your spousal unit?

  12. Hurray for Mother's Day Eve! Brilliant idea. An oppotunity to go out with the girls (mothers) and get pissed. Hangover on Mothers Day means you can stay in bed all day and HE will have to take over! Not great example for the kids - but who cares. Yep I am all for this! And when I finally feel like surfacing from my bed I shall retire to the sofa to watch 'Motherhood'!
