Whether you are interested in international adoption, or are just looking for a feel-good movie to share with your family on Saturday night, a great film is coming to FOX this coming Saturday, January 8. “Change of Plans” will be the fourth in the Walmart/Procter & Gamble “Family Movie Night” series, starring “American Idol” Brooke White, Joe Flanigan and Phylicia Rashad.
When Sally Danville (Brooke White) finds out that her best friend from college died in a tragic accident while in the Peace Corps, Sally is shocked to discover that she has also been named the legal guardian of her friend’s four children—three of whom were adopted from third-world countries. Sally and her husband Jason (Joe Flanigan) become overnight parents to this instant family, helping them deal with culture clashes and adjust to 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.
After spending time on Broadway and in her recent film “For Colored Girls,” Phylicia Rashad returns to television as social worker Dorothy. The cast is rounded out with a dynamic crew of children including Jordan (Jayme Lynn Evans, "All My Children"), Javier (Bobby Soto, "Brothers & Sisters"), Kaleb (Jakobe Dempsey, "Barney & Friends") and Sung Lee (newcomer Clarissa Suwoko).
The "Change of Plans" DVD and soundtrack will be sold together in a bonus pack exclusively at Walmart. More details will be announced in 2011. For more information visit www.familymovienight.com.
See you at the movies!
