Who is Simon Miller? August 6 #FamilyMovieNight Review

If you asked me and the family what types of movies we generally like, it's "ACTION", "SPY MOVIES", and movies that make you think. We love James Bond, Cars 2, and the hubster and I love other movies or TV shows along the same genre.

When given the opportunity to screen the new P&G and Walmart Family Film, WHO IS SIMON MILLER? we were super excited. We knew after watching the first two family film night presentations, that every movie seems to keep getting better and better, so we were all eager to watch this new one. Here's the movie trailer:

It looks great, doesn't it?! The premiere of Who Is Simon Miller? is on Saturday, August 6 on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT, so make sure you plan for it this weekend. The best part is that this movie isn't "scary" for younger kids, and yet it's good enough to even keep the teen boys interested. There's just enough of a balance between action and drama, so again, another home run from the production team at P&G and Walmart for a wholesome family movie.

Ok, so the con's of this movie review.... the mom in this flick becomes a supermom out of nowhere. One minute she's a cooking freak who only seems to think straight when she cooks or obsesses over her family eating healthy, and the next she's elbowing bad guys in a stair well to make a grand getaway. I mean, I'm not sure if I was put into a few of those situations if I would be able to respond the way she does, and have it perfectly fall into place. Also the son is somewhat of a computer geek/genius, and although they hint about it, tease him about it, and he cracks several things the average Joe isn't supposed to know how to crack, it was a little bit of a stretch. 

All in all, the story line was really good, the characters were well played, with a great twist, and it was great seeing another family unit working together no matter what came their way. From snipers, to disappearance, to flying all over the world, this movie has something for everyone.

So pop your popcorn, tell the kids to meet you on the couch, and  figure out WHO IS SIMON MILLER? !! Don't forget its premiere is this Saturday on NBC at 8pm EST. Like the idea of wholesome family flicks? LIKE Family Movie Night on Facebook so you never miss an update or upcoming movie night!

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of P&G and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
