And now for a movie that not only is a great family night movie,
but perfect for some pre-Olympic viewing, as it comes out next Tuesday!
A Girl Who's Lost Her Footing… Finds A Friend With A Tail.
Rising star Shelby Lyon heads up an all-star cast, including Peyton Meyer (Girl Meets World), Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles), Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day) and, of course, Crystal the Monkey (Night At The Museum).
Check out a sample clip:
This was a fun family night movie, that allowed for a few pauses and discussions, especially about 'mean girls', trying your best, how people mourn differently, forgiveness, and responsibility. Whew, that's a lot when you think it's about a girl and a monkey!
But Gibby is adorable and Miss Grace was hysterical during the kitchen scene, I shared above, and adored the movie. I would say it is aimed more at the pre-teen to teen level, but adults will be charmed by it. And it's perfect for getting into the Olympic mood, due to the gymnastics included!
Parents who long for a clean and entertaining movie to watch with their children will be delighted. In addition, it is “Family Approved” by the Dove Foundation.
THREE winners will each get a copy of this fun family movie!
