Walmart + P&G "Truth Be Told" Family Movie Night

Finding a good family flick is becoming more difficult in today's society. I remember coming home and catching wholesome after school television, and special Friday & Saturday evening movies that I actually looked forward to. My parents and I would sit and eat some snacks and truly enjoy each others company.

If you've been reading 4BabyAndMom for any length of time, you know that I hate most of the "kids" programming on TV. It's either too mature, too immature, or just 'fluff', in my opinion. With four kids in the 4BabyAndMom family, (ranging from 5 to 10), finding programs that are suitable for all of the age groups is also quite the feat.

It's gotten to the point that we've purchased old school cartoons & movies from Amazon and Ebay to help re-create those Family Movie Nights with-in our own families.

Tomorrow, Walmart and P&G are presenting "Truth Be Told", a family friendly movie night starring Candace Cameron Bure, Ronny Cox, and David James Elliott. I remember Candace Cameron Bure from her role on "Full House", and was eager to see how she played this role. Thanks to Mom Central, we had the opportunity to have a sneak peek at this film before it's official debut.

A love story with a twist, this family friendly flick has something for everyone. An underlining theme of the consequences for telling lies is affluent throughout the movie, and a great lesson for children of all ages. The movie touches on a bunch of real life issues from blended families, to doing "what it takes" to obtain a job, to loyalty and the respect of marriage and family.

Overall, I was very pleased with the movie. There was a brief moment where the little ones had to turn away because of a spooky part, but it lasted no more than a couple of moments. There was no inappropriate touching or sexual scenes, but the chemistry between Candace Cameron Bure and co-star (and hunk!) David James Elliot was definitely there. Again, this movie is a very cute family movie that I highly recommend catching tomorrow evening.

I will warn you that the story line is a little predictable for the adults, and similar to recent movies that have been in theaters over the last year or so (ie: The Proposal) but for a primetime movie on FOX- definitely worth it.

Check out the trailer here:

Feel free to share some of the ways your family enjoys movies or television together. In conjunction with the movie theme, you may also talk about ways you've discussed lying with your children such as: When is it OK to lie? Or even - where's the line between a little white lie and a regular lie?

Be sure to catch "Truth Be Told" on FOX, Saturday April 16 at 8pm EST. For more information, check out the Family Movie Night Facebook page here.

Special thanks to our friends at Mom Central and P&G for the opportunity to screen this movie before its release.
