It can be hard to find a family friendly movie, but I have you covered. Here are three picks for this weekend. Here are my three picks.
It’s a wonderfully fun movie in the vein of ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’. When Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo) was young, he left his girlfriend Wendy (Kristy Swanson) and his hometown calling for a business opportunity. 15 years later, with a high-paying career and a trophy fiancé, he is visited by Mike (John Ratzenberger), an angel, who gives him a glimpse into what his life would look like had he followed his original plans.
I loved every moment of this movie! It is the right pace with the right substance. It does not make you feel overly ‘preached to’, so ladies your husband will sit through it. The young lady who plays his youngest daughter steals every scene she is in.
Here is a taste:
Girlfriend’s Night In pick:
The only thing standing between Dr. Lisa Leland (Candice Cameron Bure) and the wedding of her dreams in the Hamptons is a 2600-mile drive from Los Angeles to Long Island.
However, a run in with the law in the country town of Normal, North Carolina leaves Dr. Leland with a choice–Jail or community service.
Sentenced to serve three days as the town’s doctor, Lisa has her world turned upside down by a man she would never expect. Quickly, Lisa finds that there’s a lot more to Normal than she could have ever imagined.
I loved the character development of the film. It isn’t preachy or cliche. As I have been saying for a while films can tell a wholesome tale without relying of big sex scenes and action sequences. This is good old fashioned story telling that you can enjoy light heartedly with a group of friends.
Here is a taste of the fun movie:
This one I carefully viewed for content concerns. It definitively deals with mature subject matter and I strongly advise you know that going in.
Rose Ricard (Lisa Arrindell Anderson) has an unusual gift; she can see into people’s souls. She uses her gift to bring closure to unsolved cases, but her most recent task opens the doors to her own past.
The acting is superb. The story is complex. The development left me wanting more time with her and less time with the desire to see a couple relationship.
This film is suitable for 16 and older with an adult in the room.
