Get Out the Popcorn, Saturday is Family Movie Night

Jan 05, 2011

We love to let you know about worthwhile family activities, especially those that are FREE and easy to pull off. We all know THOSE are few and far between. Well, get out the popcorn, because Family Movie Night is back with “Change of Plans” on Saturday, January 8, at 8/7c on Fox.

The people of Walmart, P&G and moms4familyTV.com are bringing us “Change of Plans,” a movie that we can enjoy with our kids, without having to leap for the remote to skip over inappropriate content. We can sit back, relax and watch a a great story – together. I like that. Here’s a little snapshot:

Sometimes life gives you Change of Plansmore than you bargained for Up to this point, Sally Danville’s life has played out just as  she hoped it would. A beautiful and free-spirited musician, she and her fighter-pilot husband, Jason, live life on the go, free of domestic responsibilities. But with a single phone call from Child & Family Services caseworker, Dorothy (Phylicia Rashad, The Cosby Show), she learns that things don’t always go according to plan. Sally (Brooke White, American Idol) is met with the news that her best friend from college has died in a tragic accident on a Peace Corps mission and has named Sally the legal guardian of her four kids – 3 of them adopted from third-world countries. Now Sally and Jason (Joe Flanigan, Stargate Atlantis) must quickly learn to parent this instant family and help the kids deal with the culture clash of life in America. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.

I’d like to give a round of applause to these guys for producing and promoting high-quality family entertainment. You can find all four of the Family Movie Night titles at Walmart stores – since your kids will want to watch them 50 billion times. 🙂
