This week, I’m giving away The Open Road, starring Justin Timberlake and Jeff Bridges. As always, nominate for next week’s comments of the week in the comments section of this post.

In this heartwarming comedy, minor leaguer Carlton Garrett (Justin Timberlake) takes an unexpected road trip to track down his estranged father, legendary baseball player Kyle Garrett (Jeff Bridges) when Carlton’s mother (Mary Steenburgen) becomes sick. Knowing his charming yet painfully immature dad’s likelihood to disappoint, Carlton enlists his on-again-off-again girlfriend Lucy (Kate Mara) for emotional support. Once reunited, Carlton struggles to deal with the series of misadventures caused by his father’s antics, including missed flights, car trouble and bathroom brawls. Years of miscommunication, frustration and comically awkward attempts at bonding come to a head as the mismatched trio make their way from Ohio back home to Houston to reunite the family.

Justin Timberlake and Jeff Bridges?  I smell hijinks!  Anyway, here’s your winner:

I will pay double to see the movie if the scene literally depicts Harrison lobbing a syringe across a football field and injecting the girl half a second before she dies.  Literally.

Spade: Man, don’t you wish I was the one that died?

I like David Spade, but that was still funny.  Well done all.
