Tune into NBC Family Movie Night this Friday

If you're looking for a fun, family-friendly activity for this weekend, we recommend tuning into NBC for Family Movie Night at 8pm ET / 7 CT and enjoying Game of Your Life, a great movie for all ages with some value "fatherhood" moments.

Launched in April 2010, Family Movie Night is NBC's effort, in partnership with Walmart and P&G, to provide families a cost-efficient entertainment opportunity that enables them to reconnect in a fun and engaging way. Additionally, during this block of time, NBC ensures that all advertising is kid-appropriate - something all parents will appreciate!

Tomorrow night's Family Movie Night features Game of Your Life, a thoughtful movie which highlights a series of character choices freshman Zach Taylor must make that affect people around him. NBC has provided a discussion guide to help parents initiate meaningful conversations with their kids about the themes of the movie, which include loyalty, teamwork, and responsibility. Click here to get the discussion guide.

Watch the trailer for Game of Your Life.

At National Fatherhood Initiative, we applaud NBC's efforts to enable families to spend time together in meaningful ways. If you, like us, sometimes feel frustrated by the lack of quality, kid-friendly TV and movie options, we think you'll find NBC's Family Movie Night to be a breath of fresh air.

We encourage you to make Family Movie Night part of your family's weekend this Friday! Pop some popcorn and get the kids together at 8pm ET tomorrow!

  1. I am wary of anything offered by mainstream national media as "family entertainment".
    Most of what I see is shallow sentimental consumer-oriented garbage (propaganda for mindless shopping). Public TV and cable channels definitely offer some good stuff, and golden oldies from the past often have strong positive messages - but much of what passes for "Family" entertainment is mediocre at best.
    I like stuff from the 40's through the mid-60's.

    It's a Wonderful Life, Lost in Space, The Outer Limits, stuff like that. To me these creations show what TV/film can be at their best. But we are living in a degenerate and decadent culture right now...
