Wholesome family drama...
1 October 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Initially I thought this was a comedy, but it turned out to be more of a family drama. But that wasn't bad, because it was really quite a surprise of a movie. I was thoroughly entertained by it, and also touched by the story.

The story is about Sally Danville (played by Brooke White) and Jason Danville (played by Joe Flanigan) who are having great careers and great prospects for the future, when they are trusted with the well-being and caring for the four children of Sally's friend and her husband, who died in an accident. And they have to adjust to family life, putting their own needs on hold and making big sacrifices.

The acting in the movie was good, and there was good chemistry between Brooke White and Joe Flanigan. In the role of Dorothy, a social worker with child's care, was Phylicia Rashad. Now she looks like she haven't aged a bit since the Cosby Show, she looks great, and she did a good job in the movie, despite having a minor role only. The four kids were played by Jayme Lynn Evans (playing Jordan), Bobby Soto (playing Javier), Jakobe Dempsey (playing Kaleb) and Clarissa Suwoko (playing Sung-Lee). These youngsters also portrayed their roles quite nicely. Most memorable was the youngest, though, Clarissa Suwoko.

Now, "Change of Plans" is very political correct and ethnically correct, as the children represents one from each racial group; white, Asian, African and Latino. It was a bit weird to have a family put together with this ingredient, but it worked out well for the movie, because everyone brought their own unique touch and culture to the bigger picture.

"Change of Plans" has a very warm and caring story to tell, and I am sure that it will have some people in tears at certain points. However, once the movie ended, I somewhat sat with the sensation of that the movie was somehow lacking something, that it could have been something more than what it turned out to be. Mind you, I am not saying it is a bad movie, I honestly did like it quite a bit.

This movie is a great movie to watch as a family or together with your loved one, because it is an emotional moving movie, and also good entertainment.
