“Family Movie Night” is back this weekend, January 8th, 8/7c, on FOX, 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.”
We 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.
