As many of you know we have a big family and with six kids ranging in age from 14 down to 4, it’s not always easy for us to watch a family movie that all of the family members will enjoy.  Thankfully, there are a few movies that bring us all together and leave us all feeling a little more like one big happy family when they are over—like The Odd Life of Timothy Green!  If you’re unfamiliar with The Odd Life of Timothy Green, I can’t wait to introduce you to this heartwarming movie that was an instant hit at our house. 

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green

The Odd Life of Timothy Green stars Jennifer Garner (Cindy)  and Joel Edgerton (Jim) as the Green’s, a happily married couple with everything but a child to share their love.  After failed attempts at trying to conceive, Cindy and Jim write down all of the things they wish for in a child, put  their wishes in a box and bury it in the back yard.  That very same night a young boy, covered in dirt, with leaves seeming to sprout from his legs shows up at the Green’s door calling himself Timothy and thus begins the story of Cindy, Jim and Timothy as a family.  Cindy and Jim, their small town of Stanleyville and nearly everyone else who comes in contact with Timothy is shown the power and beauty in being different.

Between the positive message, which to our family was “being different can sometimes be the best thing ever” (as one of my children put it) and the fact that The Odd Life of Timothy Green is one of the first movies in a long time that our entire family could watch together and enjoy, I have to give it 2 thumbs up!  I love that my children were able to easily understand the underlying message of the movie and that it served as an opportunity for them to learn to be more tolerant (a message I try to drive home constantly) .  If you’re looking for a family-friendly movie with a good positive message, great characters and a fun story—you should definitely check out The Odd Life of Timothy Green, I think you’ll love it!  Check out the trailer below!




The Odd Life of Timothy Green will be available on DVD/BLU-RAY December 4th!  You can also check out The Odd Life of Timothy Green in Misadventures in Baby Raising’s 2012 Holiday Gift Guide, it’ll make an excellent stocking stuffer for someone on your list this holiday season!

    There is not much to my movie night, since I'm always alone. Sometimes I gather my own snacks, make sure everything is in it's proper place, and sit back, and let Cinema take me away.

  18. Make family movie night a tradition. What I mean is always do at a particular time, take for instance Friday nights. Every Friday night or every other Friday night watch movies with your family. Its almost like a ritual after awhile. You would be surprised how the kids kind of like routines and will even get on your case about it should you decide to skip it..lol
