You must be pretty awesome, because you've found the site for the Summer Movie Contest Of 2011!  If you enjoy contests, movies, and summers, this is the site for you!  If you don't enjoy contests, movies, and summers you're probably some kind of weirdo and you should go look at whatever kinds of sites it is that weirdoes like.

Another summer has come and gone and so we must say farewell to the Summer Movie Contest of 2011.  But not before we say congratulations to this year's winner; THE DEEJ!  He gave the rest of us a good old fashioned a$$ whooping with an impressive 68 points.  That's a 26 point advantage over second place finisher Richard.  That might be the biggest point gap in the history of the contest although I'm way too lazy to look it up.  And speaking of 2nd place finisher Richard, congratulations to the rookie for finishing in the money.

See you next year!

If you scroll down (after you've finished reading this of course) you'll find the final top 20 movies of the summer. If you scroll down a bit more you'll find all of our picks, final scores and rankings.  I've also included our email addresses in case you want to get to know your fellow contestants better. Perhaps you'd like to say, "Hey fellow movie gross guesser, nice job on guessing Judy Moody to make $400 million" or you could pose the question, "Do you think that Kevin James will finally win his much overdue Oscar for his performance in Zookeeper?"  How you choose to use the email addresses is up to you. 

If you'd like to know more about The Summer Movie Contest, a good place to start is with The Rules.  You can also keep up with the latest goings on and see how everyone is doing by checking out The News or Smokey's Scratches. You can also check out past contests by clicking the links at the top of the page.  I bet you can't guess which year the "Contest 2009" link takes you to. 

At this point I'm sure that you've been overcome with the urge to say something nice to either contest founder Smokey or his little helper and web site host Don.  Never fear because I've made it easy to do so by clicking HERE.

Now go and have the best time of your life!
