I'm a Sucker for a Sappy Movie
Fox has brought back "Family Movie Night" to Saturday evenings.
Their first offering is called "Change of Plans." It deals with the powerful theme of international adoption and illustrates that there are some kids in our world who simply need a home. It might be good viewing for your family this weekend.
Here's what Dennis Rainey of FamilyLife had to say about the movie...
If you're anything like me, you sometimes have a hard time finding quality entertainment that you can watch with your family. That's why I am so excited to tell you about a new movie airing on Fox this Saturday night (8 PM, 7 Central), as part of Walmart and P&G's Family Movie Night series.
Change of Plans tells the story of a young couple, Sally and Jason, whose lives are turned upside down when Sally's best friend from college is killed in a tragic accident. Sally and Jason are forced to make some life-altering decisions when they discover that she has been named legal guardian to her friend's four children, three of whom were adopted from third world countries. Change of Plans stars Brooke White (American Idol) and Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show) and according to the official website, portrays how "fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others." What a great discussion starter for you to engage your kids around issues that are truly important.
