We got to watch a sneak peak of Truth Be Told this weekend. It’s a made for television movie staring Candace Cameron Bure and David James Elliott.
When leading marriage counselor Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure) is offered an opportunity to host a relationship talk show, she jumps at the chance. But fearful that being single might ruin her big break, she conspires with an old college friend and recent widower, Mark Crane (David James Elliott), to pose as a married couple with kids. Their story starts to unravel when Annie and Mark join her eccentric soon-to-be boss (Ronny Cox) for a weekend at his ranch in New Mexico. Comical misunderstandings mark the event as Annie struggles to keep up the ruse, finding herself emotionally invested and conflicted by her own conscience. Will she confess the truth about her marital status and her feelings for Mark… and will the truth set them free?
We thought the movie was a typical feel-good family movie with a lesson for everybody. It was cheesy and cute at the same time. There are wholesome family moments and many opportunities for learning for kids and adults. Most importantly, they show that lies are not good and there are consequences.
Even at 4 and 2, we emphasize how important it is that our children don’t lie. Nothing good will come from it. And, often, not only will they get in trouble for what they lie about, but we will find out about the lie and then, they will get in trouble for that, too.
"Truth Be Told" premieres Saturday, April 16th on FOX at 8pm/7ct.
