What if you and your kids could all enjoy movie night together?

Robin Lively

It’s a scene that is familiar to all moms. You sit down on the couch with your young ones, excited to enjoy a little downtime together. You flip on the TV and begin channel surfing, looking for the perfect program to all enjoy together. Given the night, you can flip through all 562 channels and not find a single appropriate program.

Because, let’s face it, we can only watch America’s Funniest Home Videos so much before our brains start to melt. Am I right?

If, on the off chance, you happen to catch an evening where there are one or two reasonable shows on for your young children, you will likely find yourself scrambling for the remote at some point during the commercial while screeching at your bewildered children to close their eyes. Whether it be an advertisement for a scary movie or a Hardees commercial, little is safe on TV these days.

That’s why I’m happy thrilled to announce a new movie coming out August 6 as part of Walmart and P&G’s series of family friendly movies.

  1. We should conduct a study. I am pretty sure I could watch hours of AFV with my brain still intact. Nothing like watching drunk wedding reception guests falling off of tables.

    Actually, we’re pretty strict with the TV around here. I do love real, honest to goodness GOOD movies for kids, though. More and more I am finding them to be few and far between.

  2. I agree. I don’t mind the funny videos so much as Tom Bergeron makes me want to walk off a bridge… 🙂

  3. I’m one of those moms that are less strict than others about what my kids watch. I would much rather them hear a bad word than watch a sex scene. That said, even with less strict standards, I have a hard time finding things that are appropriate to watch. I love the walmart movies and I am looking forward to this!

  4. Great! I am too. It’s nice to know you can sit down and enjoy something wholesome with your child for an evening. 🙂
