You might think that this is one of my "I've got a secret" posts. Well, it kind of is.
A few weeks ago a group of us dads was invited by Mom Central Blogging to take part in a blog tour promoting the new television movie "Truth Be Told". Truth be told is a family movie, and we love family movies, so I jumped at the chance to participate.
Now, here's the secret part. I'm old enough to remember days before cable television. No, I'm not old enough to remember days before T.V., but I do recall times when we only got two clear stations on the old "Boob Tube". We did get a third, but it was usually too fuzzy to watch. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed getting together as a family to watch shows like "The Waltons", "Mary Tyler Moore". "Carol Burnette" and "Apples Way".
That tradition has carried over to my young family today. Unfortunately, T.V. has changed and there aren't quite as many family shows to view. Most of our living room time is clicking through the channels trying to find a suitable show to watch with young children. Most of the time we end up turning it off completely.
There just doesn't seem to be many good, family, movies anymore. Well, P&G and WalMart are aiming to change all of that. They are producing a series of films for what they are calling "Family Movie Night". The first one is going to be shown this Saturday on your local FOX station at 8/7c (check you local listings).
"Truth Be Told" is about Colorado's top romance expert (Candace Cameron Bure) who doesn't always follow her own advice. You see, this romance expert isn't married. In fact, she doesn't even have a boy friend. When she is approached by a wealthy eccentric rancher (Ronny Cox) about a new television show, she jumps at the chance. The only problem...he thinks she's married! Not wanting to ruin the opportunity, she convinces an old high school friend and recent widower (David James Elliot) to accompany her (along with his cheeky two children) on a visit to ranch of her soon to be boss. As you can imagine, hilarious events are about to happen. Can she keep up appearances? Tune in Saturday to find out!
I was able to preview this move and loved what I saw. I can't wait to watch it on our big screen this Saturday (the preview was on my computer). So, get the popcorn and soda's ready and join me! Remember, it's this Saturday, April 16 at 8/7c on FOX.
