FireProof the Movie

I want to recommend Fireproof to all of you. To be honest, as much as I adore Kirk Cameron, I really thought it was destined to be a cheesy C movie...but I loved it! My husband and I both enjoyed it and have been talking about what we've learned from it the last few days.

Quick synopsis: This movie is well written, not too chick-flick yet not too hardcore fireman movie and it has some real laughs and tears. Really- and it's not overly cheesy, it's actually very entertaining. It's about a couple on the verge of divorce and the husband decides to take the "Love Dare" to try to save their marriage. It's written very realistically and through the movie some very solid marriage tools are lived out. The movie does have very strong Christian overtones, but to those with an open mind this movie is full of marriage tools that I can guarantee will benefit you and your spouse whether if you're almost married or have been married for thirty years. Two thumbs up!

My future mother-in-law gave me the book from the movie, "The Love Dare". She challenged me to do it for the first 40 days of our marriage.

I haven't seen the movie, but I'd like to!

i totally agree - the movie was actually a good thing for us to see (since we're in our 1st year of our marriage and i'm starting my business and he's about to finish law school and face the CA bar exam!) - it's a surprisingly honest portrayal of common struggles in a marriage that can hurt the relationship - especially when you're both on the go individuals!

good recommendation! =)
