DVD Review and Giveaway: Opposite Day!

Every Friday at our house, we have Family Movie Night where we all gather around the TV for a movie that’s appropriate for the whole family. This past weekend, our family movie was Opposite Day. This movie definitely fit the bill for great family entertainment!

My boys loved Opposite Day because the premise is every kid’s dream: The kids become the grown-ups and take charge, while the adults become the children and have to do whatever they are told! When siblings Sammy and Carla leave town with their grandparents, a strange thing happens in their town that causes the adults and the kids to change roles. Since they were out of town, Sammy and Carla don’t become adults, but their parents (still at home) become children! It’s up to Sammy and Carla to sort out the mess -- that is, after they figure out that it’s not so great being all grown up after all. (To add to the turmoil, their poor grandparents are thrown in jail soon after they return from their trip!)

Opposite Day stars Pauly Shore as the father, Dick Van Patten as the grandfather, and other stars you may recognize from various TV shows. Of course, it’s all silly and unbelievable, but that’s what’s so fun about this movie. It allows kids to see what it might be like if they got their wish to swap places with their parents!

Opposite Day debuts on DVD this Tuesday, November 16, 2010. You can purchase it at many retail stores as well as through Amazon. I hope you’ll pick up a copy for your next Family Movie Night!

  10. I'd like to be a kid again so I could spend the day helping my grandma in her garden and in the kitchen. I loved listening to her stories! And how I wish I'd been aware enough to write them all down!
