Blu-ray Monday Giveaway: The Switch

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

For this week’s Blu-ray Monday we are giving away a copy of hilarious romantic comedy ‘The Switch’.

The ticking of her biological clock prompts Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) to conclude she doesn’t need a man to have a baby, simply a sperm donation. At an ‘Insemination Party’ thrown by her friends, best pal Wally (Jason Bateman) accidentally tips her sample down the sink, forcing him to make a switch with his own. After seven years apart, the pair meet up with Kassie’s son, Sebastian (Thomas Robinson) leaving Wally with one daunting decision.

As usual with Blu-ray Monday, you have two chances to win. For your first entry, simply retweet the following post on Twitter: Tweet this

Then for a second entry, leave a comment on this post to the following question:

The Switch features up-and-coming child star Thomas Robinson, who steals many of the film’s best one-liners from his adult counterparts. Over the decades, performances from the likes of River Phoenix, Macualay Culkin, Dakota Fanning, and Drew Barrymore show that kids are more than capable of competing with the adult acting world. If you had to name your favourite child actor who would it be and why?

To make it easier for us to contact you, leave your Twitter details with your comment. We look forward to your suggestions!

    My favourite child star is Jodie Foster. When I was younger I used to love her in Candleshoe, Freaky Friday and Bugsy Malone and then when I grew up I discovered her outstanding child performances in Taxi Driver and The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane. She’s still my favourite actress.

    My favourite was Jonathan Lipnicki, especially when he was in Jerry Maguire! So cute! x

  3. 3 Joanne Blunt January 28, 2011 at 11:00 am

    Either Corey Haim or Corey Feldman as Licence to Drive was one of my favourite films as a teenager, and I could never tell which one was which! Bit like Ant & Dec 🙂

    Macualay Culkin because his performanaces in Home Alone & Home Alon2 were outstanding! Films I can watch over and over again which tells a story! Also loved his performance in My Girl!

  26. 27 January 14, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    It would have to be Jaden Smith at the moment I think he is so cute and I loved him in Karate kid I thought it even gave the first one a run for its money

    That little kid with the glasses who was in Jerry Maguire. Don’t know who he was but he was soooo cute!

  28. 29 Jen January 14, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    My favourite has to be child actress Mara Wilson – I used to love Matilda as a child, and watched it all the time!

    A great wee actress, funny at times, and even a bit annoying at times…lol, but loved her all the same. 🙂


  29. 30 Trudi Walsh January 14, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Haley Joel Osment, I though he was fantastic in The Sixth Sense

  30. 31 Angela Webster January 14, 2011 at 10:16 am

    I like Freddie Highmore, he is really quirky and adapts to his roles really well, I think he has a great future in acting.

  33. 34 Melissa Wash January 13, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    It has to be Keshia Knight Pulliam ( Rudy Huxtable in the Cosby Show ) – just such a cute kid!

    This is way before my time but Shirley Temple was an exceptional child actor.

  39. 40 Eva D January 13, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Drew is my favorite!! She has over come addiction a childhood filled with drugs etc and has over come. She was a great actress as a child and is an even better adult actress. I also love her personality

  40. 41 Cassandra January 13, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Macaulay Culkin – definitely a gorgeous, endearing child actor but not so sure that has stayed with him now he’s grown up!

  41. 43 Glenn H January 13, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    Drew Barrymore – loved her in ET & then every movie ever since.. so glad she got herself cleaned up when she started to run into trouble.. @sajak551

  46. 48 JoshUK January 13, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Macualay Culkin! He was awesome in Home Alone and Richie Rich!

  47. 49 Amy Rouse January 12, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    Ron Howard. Adorable as a child actor, brilliant and so grounded as an adult

  48. 50 Bretta January 12, 2011 at 2:04 am

    I loved Shia LeBouf…he had amazing talent even as a young man, especially in the Disney movie Tru Confessions!


  49. 51 Janet January 12, 2011 at 12:04 am

    Macualay Culkin in “Home Alone” was pretty dang memorable to me, thus he’s my favorite child actor on your list.

  50. 52 Chronorayven January 11, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    I’ll go with River Phoenix just because it sounds cool.

  51. 53 Gary S January 11, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    I would have to say Hailee Steinfeld from True Grit.

  52. 54 Annette Campbell January 11, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    I would have to pick Drew Barrymore. She is the all time best ever. She is such a good actress.

  53. 55 Vera S January 11, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Drew Barrymore is my favourite because she was such an adorable child I still love her.


  54. 56 Kari Meeks January 11, 2011 at 6:58 pm

  57. 59 Rebecca Graham January 11, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    I am going back many years to say Ron Howard (Opie) was my favorite child actor because he was one of the child actors that did not go “crazy” as he grew up.

  58. 60 SunRae January 11, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    Kami Cotler from the Walton’s. She was so young and did a good job of acting. She was so real.

  59. 61 destiny January 11, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    Abagail Breselin she is just so talented and so cute! Her movies have all been quality films too. @dad1111 on twitter

  60. 62 Lizzi January 11, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Dakota Fanning, she was brilliant in War of the Worlds.

  61. 63 Stephen Cross January 11, 2011 at 6:51 am

    Chloe Grace Moretz is definitely te best rising kid star. After Kick-Ass and 500 Days of Summer she has shown herself to be an amazing actress. I love her!

  62. 64 January 10, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    I agree with Kelly above – Drew Barrymore – she has improved with age! @dianetowin on twitter – Retweeted

  63. 65 Blake Matthews January 10, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Jerry O’Connell — Stand By Me, My Secret Identity, Sliders, Crossing Jordan, Pirhana 3-D. He’s been in some good and not so good projects, but he’s shown that he has a good range.

  64. 66 Shelly aka allysmama January 10, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    I always loved watching the Shirley Temple movies, she was sweet and innocent with just a touch of mischief!

  65. 67 kelly handlovitch January 10, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    My favorite child star would have to be Drew Barrymore. She has lasted through the years. Awesome. @kellyrelal691

  66. 69 January 10, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    I have a new favorite! Hailee Steinfeld who stars in the True Grit remake. She was fantastic.

    Macualay Culkin was such a great child actor..Home Alone & Home Alone 2 are such great clasics!! I watched these when I was a kid and now my daughter watches these now and are a favorite of hers too!! Following and tweeting as @alongcamemary1..ty for the chance to win !! Jen Anniston is a fav of mine and I really wanted to see this movie “Switch” how great would it be to win it!! Mary ( o :

  69. 72 arctic00 January 10, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    Dakota Fanning because she made some very good movies as a child and continues to get good roles as she’s gotten older.

  70. 73 Ross W January 10, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    Cliche perhaps, but it’s gotta be Macaulay Carson Culkin. Grew up with him and his films, and I really shouldn’t make it known, but my fav MC film isn’t Home Alone but Getting Even With Dad. Oh geez, it’s now known on the internet!!

    Following as @shapala84

  71. 74 Diana Cotter January 10, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    It would have to be Karen Dotrice, who played Jane Banks in Mary Poppins and who had me in tears in The Three Lives of Thomasina. We are almost the same age and she takes me right back to those magical childhood days when anything was possible.

  72. 75 Tina K January 10, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    @Sunnygirl1204 Definitely My favorite Is Dakota Fanning 🙂

  73. 76 Roxie January 10, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Drew Barrymore in ET. Aww!! x

  75. 78 Ruth Tesdale January 10, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    I loved Alisan Porter in Curly Sue as she really stole the show.

  76. 79 Diana V January 10, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    I was always a huge River Phoenix fan, but I’d never really say he felt like a “child” actor.

  77. 80 Cort K January 10, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    It would be Corey Feldman he was just so different and smooth when he was younger acting with adults. The role that he did in The Burbs is by far my favorite. He will be in my town this week signing autographs I’m looking forward to meeting him.

  78. 81 Ben January 10, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    Chloe Moretz is only 12 but has already been great in (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, KICK-ASS and LET ME IN!

  79. 82 Marvin C. January 10, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    My favorite child actor goes to Haley Joel Osment. He has made a lot of memorable films from AI, Pay it Forward, and Forest Gump. But there is no other child actor I can think of that starred in a captivating and remarkable movie as The Sixth Sense. He played a creepy kid that’s being haunted by many ghost and as an actor he kept the audience in the edge of his chairs with his innocent but tortured style acting delivery. Apart from acting he has even done voice acting for big name games like the Kingdom Hearts series. Truly one of the best child actors.

    RT’d @VeridisQuo1

  80. 83 Rebecca J January 10, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    I’m going old school for this one, Shirley Temple! She was so darn cute and talented! I could watch her movies anytime! @hairgirl1966

  81. 84 Lisa Garrett January 10, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    I loved Peter Billingsly!

  82. 85 Wendy Collard January 10, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    My favourite child actor is Mara Wilson, from Mrs Doubtfire, Miracle on 34th Street etc etc. She is so cute, and a wonderful little actress who draws you in straight away and has you loving her from scene 1! Plus she has wonderful facial expressions which do make me giggle :-)From Wendy (Twitter, @WendyCollard

  83. 86 Lorna Garratt January 10, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    sugar melts, why because sugar is sweet and melts as she will melt away hearts @dipsymummy

  84. 87 susan smoaks January 10, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    my favorite is drew barrymore because i grew up watching her, she rocks! @fdp4life on twitter

  85. 88 Jessie Staton January 10, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Mine would be Jonathan Lipnicki from Jerry Maguire, he was so cute and had some cracking one liners like :

    Jerry Maguire: The fu*kin zoo is closed, Ray.
    Ray: You said fu*k.
    Jerry Maguire: Uh… yeah… I…
    Ray: Don’t worry. I won’t tell.

    I also really liked Corey Haim he was awsome back in the 80’s .

  86. 89 julie henderson January 10, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    corey haim – its the scene of him in the bath in lost boys – so sweet RIP CH

  87. 90 Yvonne Brownsea January 10, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    I’d have to say Bobb’e J. Thompson – I recently saw him in “Role Models” on TV over xmas and he was soooo funny. Very well played.

  88. 91 Wendy January 10, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    Shirley Temple always fascinated me, great little actress, singer & dancer; triple threat!


  89. 92 Nina Greaves January 10, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    Robin Weisman from 1980’s classic “3 Men and a Little Lady” for the line “What a crock of ****” – the funniest line by a child actor ever!!

  90. 93 christine taylor January 10, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Deffinatley was Mcaully Culkin,spelt wrong i know lol but i was a huge home alone fan and he was fab x

  91. 94 beverley January 10, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Awesome – would love to see this but he will never get it when he goes to rent/buy a film. 😦

  92. 95 Dusty B January 10, 2011 at 3:03 pm
