My husband and I had a chance to preview Truth Be Told, a Family Movie Night special presented by P&G and Walmart that premiers tomorrow night (1/16) at 8 ET / 7 CT.
We really, really enjoyed the last Family Movie Night special, Change of Plans, and I had high hopes for this one as well. It is, undoubtedly, a sweet, family-friendly movie with a good message. But unlike the last movie, this one definitely has more of a made-for-TV feel.
I still absolutely support the efforts of P&G and Walmart to provide more family-friendly entertainment, and I think this is a movie that the whole family will enjoy, even if it is a little cheesy!
From the official site:
When leading marriage counselor Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is offered an opportunity to host a relationship talk show, she jumps at the chance. But fearful that being single might ruin her big break, she conspires with an old college friend and recent widower, Mark Crane (David James Elliott), to pose as a married couple with kids.
Their story starts to unravel when Annie and Mark join her eccentric soon-to-be boss (Ronny Cox) for a weekend at his ranch in New Mexico. Comical misunderstandings mark the event as Annie struggles to keep up the ruse, finding herself emotionally invested and conflicted by her own conscience. Will she confess the truth about her marital status and her feelings for Mark…and will the truth set them free?
