Make Plans This Saturday Night to Watch “Change of Plans”

“Family Movie Night” is back this weekend, January 8th, 8/7c, on FOX,Change of Plans poster with “Change of Plans,” starring Brooke White, Joe Flanigan, and Phylicia Rashad.

Movies MADE for Families!

I LOVE to watch movies.

It is my favorite way to relax — curl up with a big bowl of popcorn and a good movie.

Now that my son is getting older, I am looking for movies to watch together that we BOTH can enjoy.

So personally, I couldn’t be happier that Walmart and P&G are continuing to make fantastic, family-friendly movies for “Family Movie Night.”

So far, Walmart and P&G have produced three movies for “Family Movie Night” — Secrets of the Mountain, The Jensen Project, and A Walk in my Shoes.

This Saturday night, January 8th, 8/7c, on FOX, it will be “Family Movie Night” again with “Change of Plans,” starring Brooke White, Joe Flanigan, and Phylicia Rashad.

And these Movies are GOOD!

Last fall, I had the privilege of attending a blogging junket in Toronto on the set of “Change of Plans.”

Brooke White - Change of PlansWe spent the day on set, chatting with the director, cast and crew, watching them shoot and hearing them share their passion for this great project. They had assembled a fantastic, quality team!

(I will publish my interview with Brooke White later this week, here on 5 Minutes for Mom.)

From my conversations and experiences on the set, I was excited to see the final product. But, of course, I had to wait. The movie was still in the “making” stages.

(While I was in Toronto, I had a chance to view “A Walk in My Shoes” and was thoroughly impressed! If you liked “Touched by an Angel” then you will love “A Walk in my Shoes.” It made me confident that “Change of Plans” would not disappoint.

In December, I watched a review copy of “The Jensen Project” with Jackson and he loved it! I only wish I had more of these movies to share with him!)

Last night, Jackson and I stayed up past his bedtime viewing “Change of Plans.” Since it is geared for the family, I really wanted a nine year old’s opinion!

The votes are in — we loved it!

(In fact, we both REALLY hope it gets picked up as a TV series. It would be so nice to have a weekly show to follow along together.)

Change of Plans is not only engaging, but it has important messages about family, working through pain and struggles, and sacrificing for one another. It is character-building, not character-weakening TV viewing.

Movies to WIN

We also have some giveaway fun!

We have a Family Movie Night gift pack that includes all the P&G/Walmart family movies to date.

That’s 3 family movies: “Secrets of The Mountain“, “Jenson Project” and “A Walk in my Shoes“, as well as a cozy fleece blanket with the “Change of Plans” logo.

(The DVD for “A Change of Plans” will not be hitting the shelves until later this spring, so we couldn’t include it in the giveaway.)

    I haven’t seen any of them! We don’t have TV, so I couldn’t watch when they were on. I really wanted to though. This would be a great way to do it!

  2. Amber says

    I haven’t seen any of them, but the one Saturday looks like something all of us might enjoy. We don’t have much planned this weekend for once so we might actually get it watched too. :)
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Thanks for posting this, made me aware that there is a family movie night. I’ll tune in this weekend and check it out. I think The Jenson Project would be a movie my family would like.

  5. says

    Where have I been to not see any of these movies. Airing on FOX means I should be able to see them here in Canada. Going to check the PVR for this week-end.

  6. Donna L says

    We watched “Secrets of the Mountain” a few months ago. It was very good. I would like to see it again. Thanks.

  7. tennille says

    I wasn’t aware of these movies-I PVR EVERYTHINg and watch it later so I will have to queue this one up. Is this contest open to Canadians-doesn’t say one way or the other?

  8. Renee Richardson says

    I really wanted to see all of them but life got in the way and I just didn’t get a chance. I was really looking forward to seeing A Walk in My Shoes. Thanks for the great giveaway :)

    We saw Secrets of the Mountain as a family (with our then 6 year old) and we loved it. I was afraid it wouldn’t be appropriate for our daughter but it was a great movie :)
    I am going to DVC Change of Plans and we will watch it on Sunday (earlier). We still enforce the 7:30pm bedtime so it comes on too late to share with younger ones.

    I have not seen any of these movies,I think the Jensen Project sounds like a movie Id love to see


  11. Jaimie K says

    I haven’t seen any of them. Secrets of the Mountain sounds exciting. I didn’t know about these family movie nights. How cool!

  12. LeAnn V says

    We haven’t seen any of these movies yet. I think the one that would appeal most to my whole family would be Secrets of the Mountain.

  13. Elizabeth Schultz says

    I just heard about Family Movie Night for the first time today, so we haven’t seen any of them. I really want to see Change of Plans, but they all look great! I love that the ads during the TV airings are family-appropriate as well. I’m so tired of lunging for the remote on every commercial when my boys are watching sporting events with my husband!

    I haven’t been able to see these movies yet I heard they were all realy good and I really want to see them. The one I want to see the most is Change of plans. I loved Brooke White on Idol and I heard she was really good in this.
