  • Family Movie Night: "Change of Plans" & A Giveaway

    P&G and Walmart are back with another Family Movie Night. The latest installment is Change of Plans, and will air on FOX on Saturday (January 8) at 8 p.m. Here’s the official synopsis of the movie:

    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.

    WIN IT!

    The Change of Plans DVD won’t be available for a while, but I have a Family Movie Night Prize Pack for one lucky CFO reader, courtesy of P&G and Walmart. The prize pack includes a Change of Plans fleece blanket (cozy!), plus DVDs of the first three installments of P&G and Walmart Family Movie Night: Secrets of The Mountain, Jenson Project, and A Walk in My Shoes. So you can have Family Movie Night whenever you feel like it :)
