I recently had the opportunity to visit NYC and meet with a few fine folks behind the making of the new family movie, Secrets of the Mountain. A good, wholesome, non-cheesy family movie. In fact, me and a few other Walmart Moms got to meet with the producer and watch with him before anyone else. The movie was great! It made me giggle, had me on the edge of my seat, touched my heart, and reminded me of moments with my own boys. You know how some movies can be a little cheesy but this really wasn’t like that all. I loved the characters and by the end of the movie, I was sad to see it over. I was ready for part two!
An even cooler thing about the family movie night, is that you don’t have to worry whatsoever about the commercials because they are good clean commercials where you might even see a fun quiz to get your family thinking. I think what P&G and Walmart did is brilliant. Yes, you will see Walmart and P&G products in the movie, such as their clothing. Almost every bit of clothing was from Walmart which was pretty cool because they looked fabulous! Yes you’ll see some Great Value products at the beginning, which I love considering I use them every day in my own home.
See any familiar faces?
There is nothing worse than sitting in the living room watching a movie with your kids and then all of the sudden seeing a half naked person or bloodied up scene. And then you have to worry about what commercial will be shown in between…I’ve seen a few that made me do a double take and left me feeling uncomfortable watching with my teenage sons.
I’m so happy to see family movie night coming back and in a wholesome clean way. I think it’s so important for families to sit down together for supper and a movie. Secrets of the Mountain airs on April 16th, on NBC. The movie can be also be purchased at Walmart beginning on April 17th for a budget friendly $12 bucks! LOVE that!
Anyways, I truly do love the movie, the whole family movie night and I look forward to watching this one with my family and future family movies. Every family moment you can have is precious…….
