P&G Family Movie Night: Game of Your Life

Game Of Your Life


Once again P&G and Walmart have teamed together to make another family-friendly movie!  This one is called Game of Your Life, Choose Your Moves Carefully.  Don’t you just love the title?  As with all of their movies, Game of Your Life, opens the opportunity for family discussion on morals and personal accountability.  I love it!  I can’t say enough about how I appreciate them making quality,  uncheesy, and entertaining movies suitable for the entire family.  That is so rare these days and really applaud them for it!



When gamer Zach Taylor lands a prized scholarship to a prestigious Institute of Game Design, his future breaks wide open. The opportunity to study under gaming legend Marcus Bentton and alongside the country’s most creative minds will certainly propel him into a successful career as a video game designer. That is, if he can pass the infamous freshman project that eliminates more than half of the class!


He teams up with brilliant yet socially awkward friends Phillip and Donald and together they persuade Sara Ramirez, a determined girl with whom Zach has a history (and possibly a future) – to join them. As the group becomes more and more entrenched in the project, Zach learns that his father, is facing mounting financial difficulty. To help out, Zach accepts an opportunity to work directly with Marcus Bentton on a secretive side project that seems too good to be true. The effort requires nearly all of Zach’s time and energy, which he should be devoting to the project. Struggling to keep it together, Zach is torn between his responsibility to his team, his admiration for Bentton and a chance to help his father.


It’s a revealing story that recognizes the magnitude behind the choices we make and the importance loyalty plays in making good decisions.

Loyalty.  How often do you hear that word anymore?  People today in the younger generation, my generation, don’t know much at all about being loyal.  If someone become too busy they’ll just politely back out on their commitments and expect everyone to understand.  I deeply believe that loyalty is one of the best traits a person can have.  To be loyal means that you’ll put others above your own desires, that takes maturity.  Watch Game of Your Life to see how Zach handles being torn three different directions!

Disney Movie Bargain!

Disney Movie Rewards


Last night my husband and I watched the new TV show, Once Upon a Time, and while it’s a show for adults it had me reminiscing and dreaming about the fairy tales and classics that enchanted me as a child.  It was nice to take a step back into the mind of a child and feel that wonderment and excitement again!  I want my children to enjoy Disney’s classic movies like I did but my old VHS tapes are worn out and who knows even where they are.  I’m excited about Disney Movie Club‘s introductory membership rate where you can get 4 Disney movies for just $1 and free shipping!  I’ll be signing up and I thought I would share the deal in case you love Disney movies too!

P&G Family Movie Night: Who is Simon Miller?

Who is Simon Miller

With a newborn in the house we don’t get out to see a movie very often so we take advantage of movies on TV and on Netflix!  I was excited to find out that P&G and Walmart have teamed together to make another family-friendly and free movie for TV.  This new movie is called Who is Simon Miller?

I had the privilege to be invited to an early viewing today and I loved the movie!  Who Is Simon Miller? is about Simon Miller (you knew that though, right?) who is a geologist (or so he says!).  One day he disappears out of the blue and his family-wife Meredith and two kids, Sarah and Kevin, realize Simon has a secret life that they knew nothing about. They set out to look for him and that’s where the adventure begins!  There ‘s plenty of action and twists in the storyline.  It is incredibly difficult to describe without giving things away so just trust me, its good!

As with all Walmart and P&G movies it is entertaining enough for adults to enjoy and clean enough for the kiddos to watch.  The movie can help open the floor for discussions on trust and honesty.  I love how there is always a clear moral to the story {or is it movie in this case?}.

So are you ready to watch it for yourself?  You can check out the premiere of Who Is Simon Miller? on Saturday, August 6 on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT.

For more information you can visit the P & G and Walmart Family Movie Night Site and “Like” the Family Movie Night Facebook Page.
