Game of Your Life review – Family Movie Night

standard November 30, 2011 7 responses

We’ve finally reached a wonderful age in our house. The age where both girls can sit through a full length feature movie without getting up to wander away, bored, halfway through. Sure they’re not exactly ready for Steel Magnolias, but that’s fine with me, because, little known secret, I’m a sucker for kid and young adult movies.

That’s right, I’ll totally sit up late at night watching teeny-bopper movies by myself. In fact, I can’t wait for the girls to be old enough to watch them with me. In the meantime we enjoy true kids’ movies, which is just fine by me.

NBC has launched a great program that totally fits into my vision of spending at least one evening a week enjoying a movie with the kids. Family Movie Night, aptly named, features family friendly movies broadcasted for free on network TV.

This Friday’s movie, Game of Your Life, is a great pick, and I’m not just saying that because Lea Thompson is in it. (I’ve had a soft spot for her since Space Camp. Yes, I’m a geek.) The movie features Zack, computer game designer, who is headed to a prestigious computer game college program.

The movie covers family issues – Zach is desperate to help his dad save their family home, friendship issues – Zach and his team are competing in a tough contest and he’s dropping the ball, going away to college, balancing school work and personal issues, as well as a host of other topics that are sure to open the door for a great post-movie family discussion. As an added bonus it paints college as a really fun place where true passions can be followed!

The plot was entertaining, the conflict believable, and while the dialogue wasn’t always as well written as it could have been, the movie definitely passes muster for an in-home evening of entertainment.

Catch the movie this Friday, December 2nd on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT and chat with other viewers on the official Family Movie Night Facebook page!
