One of our favorite frugal family activities is family movie night. We pop some popcorn, grab blankets and pillows, turn off the lights, and sit in our family room, bundled up and enjoying a good movie. Although we love to watch things new movies, it can be difficult to find family friendly movies (which is why we watched Elf last weekend for the 50 zillionth time). That’s why I’m so excited about the movies that P&G and Walmart have partnered together to present! On Saturday, January 8th, you’ll find our family watching the new Walmart/P&G family movie Change of Plans on Fox! Since watching the trailer, I’ve been anxiously waiting for it to air.
Up to this point, Sally Danville’s life has played out just as she hoped it would. As 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.
