Truth Be Told, a new family movie starring Candace Cameron Bure premieres on Fox on April 16 at 8/7 central! I was so excited when I saw that Candace, who plays one of the daughters on the TV series “Full House” (one of my favorite when I was a kid) is in this family movie. She’s a great actress! The movie sounds entertaining and funny, too:
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?
When I was given the opportunity through Mom Central to attend a pre-premiere showing online, I went for it! They sent me a cute little tin with popcorn, skittles, and M&M’s to enjoy with the movie, and I watched it with great expectations. I wasn’t disappointed, it was heartwarming, family-oriented, funny, and all of the characters were likable. I loved Candace’s character, Annie. And I have to admit that I had the feeling that everyone else did upon hearing that Annie was a single marriage counselor – is that even legal? ;-) But she has a true desire to help people and save families from divorce and that made up for it. After all, could she help it if she hadn’t met the right man yet? It still made me laugh – I sure wouldn’t see a marriage counselor who wasn’t married! Would you?
Watch the Trailer:
Since the movie is centered around an elaborate deception, that’s a topic that will probably come up in the conversations taking place while families watch this movie together.
How do you feel about deception?
Is it okay to lie to people you don’t know so well but not okay to lie to your family and loved ones?
Is it really a lie if someone assumes something incorrect and you let them believe it?
These are questions we all ask ourselves anyway, since we’re faced with the temptation to tell white lies every day. What do you think? I have to admit that I’ve told white lies to get out of things I don’t want to do, but I try not to fall into that trap. If we can’t be ourselves and completely honest then there’s probably something wrong with our thinking! Anyway, we all know that you really can weave a tangled web when you deceive someone. It has a way of coming back to get us later. :)
We can thank Walmart and P&G for this great family movie. This is one to put on your calendars for sure – remember April 18 to be on the lookout for Truth Be Told! It’s worth watching. :)
