You have found the super awesome web site for the super awesome Summer Movie Contest of 2006.  Here's some more good news; scientists have confirmed that participating in the Summer Movie contest leads to a longer, happier life! 

Congratulations to Corey for coming through with the huge win this year.  After threatening to win for the last few years, he came through with a giant 72 points and the victory.  Congrats as well to Duane, Melissa and Jessica for the 2nd Place finish.  For more details, you can check out The News (look under 9/6/06 and 9/7/06).  Thanks to everyone for playing and hopefully we'll have everyone back next year!

Below you will find the FINAL Top 20 movies of the summer and below that you'll find all of our picks along with final scores and rankings.  I've also included everyone's email address so that we can say stuff to each other like "I sure wish Snakes on a Plane came out tomorrow" or "Nice move picking Garfield 2 as the number one movie of the summer". 

 

If you're not sure why you're here or how this works, you can check out The Rules.  If you'd like to check out contests from other years, follow one of the links above or you can go to the Home Page.

 

It wouldn't be a summer contest without my traditional plug, so if you just can't get enough gross guessing, you can go to Guess The Gross.com. Win prizes every week by guessing the opening weekend grosses of new feature films. It's a cool site and it's run by a couple of our own players.
