In this movie, part of the plot involves running an essay contest. The grill was to be given to the best essay writer. But the essay had to be mailed along with $100.
My question: is this legal?
Excellent movie, in my opinion! As to the legality ..... This has been done in one form or another for years. Often times it will be an essay or some other contest for a house or some other form of property. Almost always there is an "entrance fee" along with a stipulation that a certain amount of entries must be received before the contest is considered valid. In other words, the owner is going to get at least "x" amount of dollars before they give up the joint.
I remember one older couple doing this with their restaurant/bar/motel up in North Idaho several years back. The contest winner ended up being a young married couple from somewhere in Minnesota. If I'm not mistaken, that contest also required $250.00 to get you in the door!
