As you know, I have previously written about Walmart and P&G’s efforts to deliver quality family entertainment in the form of Family Movie Night movies with The Jensen Project and Secrets of the Mountain. I caught the third installment of the Family Movie Night movies from Walmart and P&G, A Walk In My Shoes, while I sat by my Mom’s hospital bed as she was recovering from a heart attack. I honestly meant to write about it here, but time got away from me, and I didn’t. Suffice it to say, I enjoyed it and plan to add it to our DVD collection. And now, Family Movie Night is back with CHANGE OF PLANS, the fourth of the Family Movie Night movies, which premieres on FOX on Saturday, January 8th at 7p.m. CST.
I’ve had a chance to watch the trailer for Change of Plans, and am confident that it is a film for the entire family. As an adoptive parent, the story of Change of Plans is especially appealing to me.
Movie Synopsis: 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 case worker, 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.
Here’s the trailer…
As with the other Family Movie Night Movies, the soundtrack is produced by Randy Jackson.
I know I’m tuning in! I can’t wait to see it on Saturday.
