I love the Redbox movie rentals. Do you know about these? We have a Redbox near our local McDonalds. You walk right up to it, find the movie of your choice, pay ONE DOLLAR! and you're on your way. One of the best features is that you can return it to any Redbox. So if you are driving an hour or two or 5 away...you can rent one for the ride there. Return it to any Redbox and pick up a new movie for the drive home.
We just took an hour drive to the "big city" to do some shopping and our Redbox movie kept the kids reasonably quiet the entire trip there and home. There's also a website with Redbox coupon codes here. I haven't used them yet, but plan to try them out when we return this movie tomorrow. So if you need a quick, cheap movie...give Redbox a try!
