Suddenly Stranded on a Deserted Island? What 3 Movies Would You Take With You?


Redbox is a quick and easy source for plenty of summer fun and in order to kick off the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes, they'd like to find out what your family's all-time favorite movie is.  Check out the 4 ways to enter (shown below) and you might be one of the two lucky families chosen to win $10,000!

If I were stranded on a desert island and could somehow manage to sneak a TV, DVD player and 3 movies along with me, I would then need to figure out how to generate electricity from a few coconuts.  After that intellectual feat, I would definitely be ready to relax with the following three movies:

1.  Sixteen Candles - This movie is hilarious and never ceases to make me laugh!  With characters like Long Duck Dong, Farmer Ted and the dreamy Jake could I go wrong?

2.  Grease - I've loved this movie since coming out of the womb, it seems.  This would give me plenty to laugh, dance and tap my toes to until my rescue.

3.  Rocky IV - I don't know what it is about this one, but every time I happen upon it, I just can't change the channel.  Having a buff Sly Stallone and Dolph Lundgren to drool over ain't too bad either...and did I mention the awesome Journey soundtrack?  This movie's ACES!

So, what about you?  What three movies are your must-haves for entertainment while being stranded on a deserted island?  I'm dying to find out!
