New Family Movie and Exclusive DVD Set Giveaway!

January 3, 2011


I cannot believe how fast Walmart and P&G have been rolling out the movies.

When they heard that moms were clamoring for wholesome, family-friendly movies for their families, Walmart and P&G released “Secrets of the Mountain.” It is an excellent movie, and we own the DVD– we watch it all the time! Shortly after the success of “Secrets of the Mountain,” they released “The Jenson Project” (and I was honored to attend an exclusive screening in New York for that), and then “A Walk in My Shoes.” NOW they have another movie coming out! It’s called “Change of Plans.” Here’s a trailer of the movie, it looks really good and has an all-star cast:

The story line is basically this: Brooke White (from American Idol) plays Sally, a very successful musician who is obsessed with her career and her husband, Jason (played my Joe Flanigan). But her best friend dies, leaving behind four adopted children. In her will, the friend bequeaths guardianship of all four kids to Sally and Jason. Needless to say, Sally and Joe are not happy with their life interrupted. It’s a heart-warmer, just like the other movies, where the characters must put aside their selfishness or misunderstandings, and change (in this case, their plans) for the sake of others.

The movie airs Saturday night on FOX– January 8th at 8pm EST. Even the commercials during the movie are “family-friendly” (thank God). I can’t harp on enough about– it’s HIGH TIME we started seeing good, wholesome, character-building movies on TV. I’m actually going to get a sneak peek of “Change of Plans” in an exclusive screening tomorrow night. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m looking forward to it.

Don’t miss “Change of Plans” if you want to watch it, otherwise you’re going to have to wait for the DVD. And the DVD will not be released until spring. So make sure you tune in on January 8th!

NOW on to the Giveaway!!!!

This is a big one– you can win a complete DVD set of the three popular movies: “Secrets of the Mountain,” “The Jenson Project,” and “A Walk in My Shoes”! How’s that for cool?! You also get a really nice fleece blanket with the “Change of Plans” logo on it! It’s so easy to enter — my contests are not very difficult.
