Mother’s Day Made Easy With Fandango
I’ve got two great mothers in my life – my own mom and my wife. My mom is your typical Italian mom – every Sunday she’s got a pot of sauce on the stove and if anyone comes over they must eat! Eat! Eat!
As for my wife, she not only took on the task of marrying a man who had a traditional Italian mother, but she’s now the mom of a very active, curious, climbs-like-a-monkey boy. Here’s the trouble: I don’t know how to show either of these awesome women how much I appreciate them. When I was a kid, we’d go see a movie with my mom every Mother’s Day. Back then, my mom got to pick the movie and we’d take her out to dinner. But looking back on it, I realize we saw a lot of kids’ movies and ate at restaurants better suited to kids than moms.
This year, I’d like to carry on that tradition of a date night for Mother’s Day with my wife, and maybe do it sans the active boy. Luckily for me, I have the Fandango app. I’ll ask her to choose the flick and I’ll use Fandango to find the closest movie theater, find the best time and buy tickets before we even leave. The Fandango app is great because I can view trailers, see interviews, read ratings and critic reviews, so I know exactly what kind of movie my wife is taking me to.
As for my own mom on Mother’s Day, I’m sad to say that she’s on the opposite coast so a movie is out – for me. Hey dad, ready to learn about Fandango?
