- American Idol 12 Recaps
I watched Change of Plans on FOX tonight mostly out of curiosity to see the acting debut of Season 7 Idol Brooke White. It’s not the kind of movie I’d make a point of watching, with it’s contrived “family friendly” plot.
The story–a young couple unwillingly take on the 4 children of family friends who die in a plane crash in Africa. The whole family had been living there, working with the Peace Corps. On top with dealing the the death of their parents, the kids have to deal with a big fish out of water scenario.
Naturally, after a few stumbles and a few tears, at the end of 120 minutes, everything works out happily ever after. Yada yada yada. Pretty predictable stuff.
But Brooke? I found her thoroughly engaging as Sally Danville, an aspiring singer/songwriter completely focused on her career. The ditzy and goodhearted Sally wants to do the right thing, but feels totally unprepared for motherhood.
Brooke was basically playing a version of herself, but she’s so adorable and likable on the screen–such a natural– she hardly seemed like a newbie. I wouldn’t be surprised if ABC Family or Disney picked her up for something.
After the jump, check out some musical clips from the movie, including the opening number, Sally playing with her band and the closing theme, “Let Us Live As One” co-written with fellow Season 7 Idol, Michael Johns.
In the last clip, Randy Jackson plays himself, introducing Sally and her band at a global music festival. Randy executive produced the soundtrack (and Brooke’s last album). He’s responsible for getting both Brooke and Michael involved in the Walmart/P&G family movie night series.
The Change of Plans DVD/CD soundtrack bundle will be available for sale at Walmart soon.
