Family Movie Showdown Presented by Xfinity


One of my favorite childhood memories is cuddling under a cozy blanket in the fort I just built out of couch cushions with my mom, dad, and sister while shoveling tiny handfuls of popcorn into my mouth as if I was a part of a competitive eating contest. You know what I’m talking about…

The Beloved Family Movie Night

Now as a parent, I get to carry on this sweet tradition. The last few months have turned every family’s world upside down. Even though we try to keep our cool, the kids feel the stress and uncertainty. Which makes quality time together even more important than ever before. Xfinity has made family movie night a breeze and features some films everyone is sure to love.

We’ve teamed up with Xfinity to bring you the Family Movie Showdown, a fun movie tournament where each member of your family can fill out their own bracket (screenshot it below or you can download a printable here).

We’ll be taking your votes as well on our Facebook and Instagram stories throughout the next few weeks to crown the best family movie.

The Prize

Anyone who votes for their favorites will be entered to win a Family Movie Night Prize from Xfinity, which includes a Xfinity On Demand Coupon good for one $5.99 movie rental or purchase and a $20 Target gift card to help the winner stock up on their movie-night-at-home essentials like snacks, popcorn, candy, or whatever else you need.

To Enter

  • Vote for your favorite movies when we post them on Facebook and Instagram. (Each vote is one entry.)
  • For extra entries, share your filled-out bracket on social media tagging ABQ Mom and using the hashtag #familymovieshowdown.
