"Truth Be Told" Premieres Saturday April 16th

P&G and Walmart continue their collaboration on Family Movie Night with their latest production Truth Be Told, which is set to premiere on Saturday, April 16th at 8/7c on FOX. The movie is part of an ongoing effort by P&G & Walmart to bring back uplifting, wholesome, content-appropriate films for families and to offer them completely free on network TV. Watching free movies on TV not only saves money but also provides an excellent way for family members to bond and spend quality time together.

Starring Candace Cameron Bure (Full House), Ronny Cox (Stargate SG-1) and David James Elliott (JAG and Scoundrels), Truth Be Told tells the comical story of Annie Morgan (Bure), Colorado's leading marriage counselor, who impresses media mogul Terrance Bishop (Cox) with her smart tip for creating romance and is thus offered a job to host a radio show on relationships. Fearing that being single would ruin her chance of getting her dream job, Annie conspires with Mark Crane (Elliott), an old college friend, recent widower, and father of two teenagers, to pose as a married couple when she joins her expectant boss for a weekend at his ranch in New Mexico. What happens during her weekend stay leaves Annie emotionally involved with Mark's family while battling with her own conscience. What will happen though if she tells the truth? Watch the trailer here.

Thanks to Mom Central, I had the opportunity to watch Truth Be Told with my family before it airs. It's an excellent family movie that is both humorous and heartwarming. Bure's acting is really impressive. She shows us how Annie struggles between her desire for the new job and her guilty conscience caused by going against her own advice for her clients "Honesty is the best policy". I love the way the romance between Annie and Mark develops as well as the feelings of Mark's kids toward Annie. I'm also touched by the simple but deep love between the Bishop couple as portrayed in the movie. My husband, on the other hand, is more attracted by the beautiful scenery of the ranch. He wishes that we could own a ranch like that some day.

The story makes us to think when it is OK to lie and how to draw the line between a white lie and a regular lie. It is our wish to be truthful at all times, but sometimes we may want to avoid telling truth that may hurt someone else's feelings. I deem a lie unacceptable if it's meant to take advantage of others and benefit the liar only, similar to what happens in the movie. But it's fine to tell someone she looks beautiful to make her happy even when you think otherwise. We definitely don't want to teach our children to lie, but from time to time we may have to conceal the truth in order to protect them.

While we ponder upon what constitutes an appropriate lie, don't forget to tune in the Truth Be Told premiere tomorrow night. Feel free to share you thoughts on the movie after you have a chance to watch it. You may also want to follow Family Movie Night on Facebook to keep up with the conversation and what's coming up next.
