I’m so excited about the next installment to Family Movie Night with P&G and Walmart on Fox. On April 16th Fox will be airing “Truth Be Told”. This family safe movie stars Candace Cameron Bure, a woman already well known for her family friendly past and best selling author of a new book. Also in the movie David James Elliott, "JAG" and "Scoundrels", and Ronny Cox, "Stargate SG-1" I’m a HUGE Stargate Fan! HUGE, I recognized him right away. Oh and you’ll see someone from Star Trek at the end of the movie. LOVE IT!
Growing up, we watched Full House every Friday night, when TV was safe to sit down together and watch. I loved the memories of spending time together as a family, laughing and just enjoying each other and the shows were much different than they are now. Now, I don’t let my kids watch any of the programs that are on. We just don’t enjoy TV the way we used to. Which is why I whole heartedly support the return of Family Movie night. Be, a TV show that lasts only 30 minutes or an entire movie, I want wholesome family programming to return.
In “Truth Be Told” Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is a very successful marriage counselor who believe in long-term relationships even though she’s never been in one. An opportunity falls into her lap, she is offered a job from Terrance Bishop (Ronny Cox) to be a radio host for marriage counseling. The catch is she has to bring her family that doesn’t actually exist. So she convinces and old college friend Mark Crane, who Terrance actually believes is her husband anyways to go along with her on a lie so she can get the job. Mark’s teenage children go along for the ride. Of course they have quite an adventure together but was it worth it to begin with a lie.
This is a super cute movie and I really enjoyed it. It’s completely safe for the whole family, the only question is how much lying is ok? In our family we’re completely against lying at all. And in the movie, no one was ok with the lie. Annie, kept trying to tell the truth but she always let something get in the way. And for some reason, Mark felt it was Annie’s responsibility to tell the truth. I don’t want to give too much of the movie away but there is a lesson to be learned, and they learned their lesson.
Tune in to the premiere of “Truth Be Told” on Saturday, April 16th on FOX at 8pm/7ct.
