Truth Be Told is a new made-for-TV family movie, starring Candace Cameron Bure, David James Elliott and Ronny Cox. It plays upon the old adage, that “honesty is the best policy,” and according to Colorado’s leading marriage counselor, Annie Morgan (Candace Cameron Bure), honesty is the key to successful long-term relationships. Ironically, Annie has never been married and doesn’t always follow her own advice.
Trough a misunderstanding, Annie receives an invitation for her and her spouse to join media mogul Terrance Bishop (Ronny Cox), at his New Mexico ranch to discuss her dream job: hosting a radio advice program. Fearful that being single will ruin her chance of a lifetime, Annie conspires with Mark Crane (David James Elliott), an old college friend, recent widower, and father of two teenagers, to pose as a married couple for the weekend. A series of comical misunderstandings color the trip, leaving Annie emotionally involved with Mark's family and battling with her own conscience. As the entertaining and touching story unfolds, Annie begins to realize that the truth may have its consequences, but ultimately it’s what opens our hearts and brings out the best in each other.
I had a chance to preview the film today and I recommend it. It has the feel of a made-for-tv movie and is utterly predictable, but the acting is above par for a film of this type, the message is strong, and it will the most edifying thing on TV tomorrow night - of that I have very little doubt.Be Told is the fifth installment of the Family Movie Night Initiative, which was launched last April in direct response to research which revealed that parents across America are seeking more family-oriented entertainment to enjoy together. When P&G and Wal-Mart learned that there was a clear desire for more options when it comes to quality family entertainment, they made a commitment to be part of the solution and are looking forward to bringing more family movies throughout 2011.
Truth Be Told will air on Saturday, April 16 at 8/7c on the FOX Network.
