Another Movie You Need to Watch

You've probably already heard about Walmart and P&G's Family Movie Night movies.  Well, on Saturday, September 3, NBC will be airing Game Time: Tackling the Past.  I had an opportunity to watch the movie in advance and let me tell you ... you don't want to miss this movie.   Here's the synopsis from the website ...

Pro football star Jake Walker is living the dream… or so he thinks. The veteran tight end is a fan favorite and on pace to set the all-time receiving yards record that will guarantee him a spot in the Hall of Fame. While working out at training camp, Jake receives an unexpected call from his brother Dean – their father Frank has suffered a major heart attack. Jake immediately leaves practice and returns to Riverton, North Carolina, the small hometown he’s avoided for nearly 15 years. Memories of glory and regret flood his mind as he returns to the family and friends he abandoned in pursuit of his career. Jake dutifully visits with Frank and Dean, but hurt and misunderstanding from the past begins to resurface, leaving him counting the days until he can return to his team.
A second unexpected call, this time from his agent, delivers Jake another crushing blow. His contract is not being renewed amid concerns about his surgically repaired knee. Suddenly, the life Jake knows is over. To avoid the media circus around this news, Jake reluctantly decides to extend his stay in Riverton. Attempting to make the best of the situation, he begins reconnecting with the community that once revered him.    Jake is reintroduced to Sarah, his high school sweetheart, and helps Dean take over their father’s high school coaching job.
Surprisingly impacted by the people around him, the real Jake begins to emerge from behind his armor to see that life is much more than the accumulation of personal stats. But when Jake’s offered a lucrative new contract to play for another team, he is forced to decide whether to go back to the career he thought he loved, or stay in Riverton and embrace the people who always believed in him.
Game Time: Tackling the Past

Head over to the Family Movie Night website to view a trailer for this movie.  This is a family-friendly movie that you all can watch and enjoy together.  There are some great life lessons and some teachable moments.  NBC even promises to air family-friendly commercials.  So make a date with the family, pop some popcorn, and enjoy this movie together.  I know we will.
Let's bring back good, wholesome family entertainment to network television!

This looks good. I hadn't heard of it, thanks for sharing, Kimberly. I'll definitely look for it.

Also...I just thought of another. If you haven't seen Soul Surfer yet, I recommend it. It has a great lesson about determination and God's plan for our lives. There's only one spot (the shark bite) that your kids might not want to watch. It's quick, and the bite isn't scary because you don't see it happen, but it does show blood in the water. Other than that....the rest is smooth sailing.

This is fun. Do you have any more movie recommendations? :D
