Fireproof

Mock if you will, but I'm one who enjoyed the movies "Flywheel" and "Facing the Giants." Sure, some of the acting was bad. Sure, some of the effects were obviously and embarrassingly low-budget. But the stories were good. They were movies I wanted to show my kids... and their friends. They were movies I wanted people to see. They were remarkably similar to the prime time television all of America used to watch weekly when I was little. (Think Little House on the Prairie and The Waltons here. It is unbelievable to me that these family-oriented shows were the usual weekly fare in households just thirty years ago.) Anyway, there is a new movie coming out that's written and produced by the same crew. This one stars Kirk Cameron, and - however cheesy it may end up being - I'm going to see it. I'm not convinced that some movies are not all the better for being distinctly UN-Hollywood.

I enjoyed the movie as well. My husband and I went to see it and it really has started to change our marriage..Anyone married especially young couples should see this movie.
