Welcome to the second installment of a new feature on Manic Mommy ...


It's Five-Buck Friday where I'll ask a random question and the first commenter to get it correct will win a crisp (or not so crisp!) five dollar bill from me!

Here are the rules -- I make them up each week as we go along! You can guess up to three times in the comments so number your guess when you guess, and after your third guess you can't guess anymore. I think that's the only rule I have so far. If, for obvious reasons, you know the answer (like, for today's question, if you were at the particular movie with me!) then you can't guess!

Other than that, I'll make up rules as we go along.

So, let's play ... FIVE-BUCK FRIDAY!

In my wallet I have two movie ticket stubs. Here are the clues:

I took my children to see both movies.

One we saw in December. The other we saw in October.

One is animated and the stars were animals.

The other was a sequel movie.

I saw one of the movies more than once, and I blogged about it and its prequel.

Women have swooned over the male stars, both the animated voice and the real live person.

These are the clues so far; So guess two movies in the comments section - one an animated one, and one a non-animated one. And later, depending how the answers go, I'll either give clues or allow YES or NO questions so pay attention to the COMMENTS section!


Last week's Five Buck Friday:

Guess the Lunch Bill?


Kirsten said...

Madagascar Out of Africa & High School Musical III? Wait, these are both sequels. Oh well, it's still my guess :-)

Kirsten said...

oh wait, "Escape 2 Africa". I don't want to blow it on a technicality.

Jenni said...

High School Musical 3

T with Honey said...

High School Musical III
The Tale of Despereaux

Jenni said...

My second guess...

High School Musical 3
The Tale of Despereaux

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Jenni. You suck.

I mean, congratulations.

How the hell did you guess it so quickly.

You're no fun.

Send your address to and I'll send you your crisp $5 bill. Man, I thought I gave hard clues. I have to make this tougher on you guys. This didn't take long at all. Really, DRAT.

12 minutes after posting, you've got several guesses and a correct one?? Man, you have some devoted followers Manic!

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Dawn, are you on twitter? I posted it on Twitter too. You have got to get on there. Or go on my sidebar and click on there where it says TWITTER.

Monnik said...

didn't T with Honey actually guess right too?

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Nope, it was High School Musical 3 and Bolt. I have not seen Tale of Despereaux.

I have got to come up with a really hard one for next week. Hmmm, maybe ICE CREAM FLAVORS!

Kirsten said...

damn. I really wanted that $5 bucks.

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Kirsten--there's always next Friday for another five bucks, and you were smart thinking that you guessed two sequels ... I hadn't thought of that.

Jenni said...

YAY! :)

I almost guessed Madagascar 2, but then went searching for another animated movies out around that time because I didn't think it would be two sequels.

Michelle said...

Bummer... I forgot all about this until just now (that working 8:30-3:30 on my day off will do it). But ummm, I didn't really have a shot, did I?

Feisty Irish Wench said...

wait...why the heck is the next word verf that pops up "wheed"??? now THAT would be an interesting movie title

val said...

High School Musical 3 ... from searching the word "movie" on your blog? is that cheating??
