Family Movie Night: TRUTH BE TOLD ON 4/16/11 FOX TV
Our family is thrilled that P&G and Walmart are continuing their partnership to host fun family movie night presentations on FOX TV. We have thoroughly enjoyed these outstanding family-themed films with relevant topics and family-friendly themes. What a breath of fresh air! We're hosting a family viewing party on Saturday night with lots of friends and snacks - no drama, no parking, no gas, no expensive movie tickets, no outrageous soda and snack charges or lines at the theater....
Millions of families are rediscovering their family rooms and actually
watching TV ... together. Thanks to Walmart and P&G, great family
movies are now being broadcast FREE on network TV. Their mission is to offer great quality movies that are good for the entire family.
We serve up lots of snacks and goodies to enjoy throughout the movies - we munch and discuss some important topics while watching and following the movies. These movies have built-in teachable moments (remember those awesome "After School Specials" of the 1970-80's???)- PERFECT family entertainment! Past movies we enjoyed over the past year were the "Jensen Project" and "Change of Plans". My kids and I discussed the topics raised including honest, responsibility, sacrifice, and empathy. All the core values I strive to share with my children in a special package topped with POPCORN!
The premiere of “Truth Be Told” is on Saturday, April 16th on FOX at 8pm/7ct. Please visit the official Family Movie Night “Truth Be Told” website: http://www.familymovienight.com/truth-be-told/ and Facebook page www.facebook.com/familymovienight

Here's a brief peek into the movie:
When leading marriage counselor Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is offered an opportunity to host a relationship talk show, she jumps at the chance. But fearful that being single might ruin her big break, she conspires with an old college friend and recent widower, Mark Crane (David James Elliott), to pose as a married couple with kids. Their story starts to unravel when Annie and Mark join her eccentric soon-to-be boss (Ronny Cox) for a weekend at his ranch in New Mexico. Comical misunderstandings mark the event as Annie struggles to keep up the ruse, finding herself emotionally invested and conflicted by her own conscience. Will she confess the truth about her marital status and her feelings for Mark... and will the truth set them free.
I had an opportunity to view a preview trailer and LOVED Candace Cameron Bure as she wrestles with important themes of honesty in a family-toned manner.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of P&G and received a movie kit to facilitate my review and a gift code to thank me for taking the time to participate.
