Seattle-area giveaway: (2 winners) Monte Carlo movie tickets

I don't know if any of you have been to the movies lately and have seen the preview for Monte Carlo- I have seen the preview a couple of times now, and it looks like a really cute movie! Here's a bit about it, from some information that I received:
Grace (Selena Gomez) is an ordinary girl who becomes an accidental princess when a family summer trip to Paris turns into the fantasy of a lifetime.  Living like royalty, Grace, along with her two best friends, discovers who she really is – by assuming another person’s identity. 
Freshly minted high school grad Grace (Selena Gomez) and best friend Emma (Katie Cassidy) are jettisoning their waitress jobs in Texas for a trip to Paris.  But Grace’s killjoy stepsister Meg (Leighton Meester) is involuntarily installed as chaperone by Grace’s mother (Andie MacDowell) and soon-to-be stepfather (Brett Cullen).  Meanwhile, Emma’s boyfriend, Owen (Cory Monteith), is trying to put the kibosh on the trip altogether with a ring and proposal.
Grace and Emma, however, will not be deterred from crème brulee by the Seine, and soon enough, the two friends, with Megan in tow, arrive in France.
            Ah, Paris…the lights...the boulevards...the…
Sorry, no time for that!  Scurried past famed landmarks by a hyperactive tour guide, and discouraged by their “luxury” accommodations and frequent tiffs, the trio’s spirits sag like the behinds of knit-panted American tourists.
Fortunes change, however, when Grace is mistaken for British socialite Cordelia Winthrop Scott.  When the girls inadvertently take possession of Cordelia’s invitation to a ritzy charity ball in Monte Carlo, they seize the moment, indeed, the entire week, by ditching their hopeless packaged tour, and heading south.  With carte blanche to the socialite’s grand suite, clothing and accessories (including a $4 million necklace), they embark on a romantic adventure of yacht parties, polo matches and highly eligible bachelors.  But when the necklace goes missing and the real Cordelia unexpectedly arrives, Grace, Emma and Meg have to rely on all their southern charm, wit and bravado to keep their sugarcoated vacation from turning into a full Monte meltdown.
To celebrate the upcoming release of this movie, I'm giving away a pair of tickets each to two lucky winners.  These passes will be valid at Seattle-area theaters, Monday-Thursday, through the film's run of engagement.

Entering this giveaway is simple- just tell me in a comment below who you'd take with you to see the movie!

Giveaway will close at 9 PM Pacific time on July 4, 2011. I'll choose winners with and will email those people who will then have 48 hours to respond. Good luck!

Disclosure: I received no product and no compensation for this post- just the opportunity to give tickets away to two lucky readers!

I would take a friend because my husband doesn't watch any movies without Bruce Willis as the star.

I'd take my daughter who loves Selena and leave the boys at home. I am sure my teen son would rather eat toothpicks. :)
