Not what we expected, 8 February 2009
Author: antchris801 from United States

My wife and I were disappointed after seeing this movie. Being a TD Jakes movie, we were surprised with the violence, profanity, alcohol use, and disrespect portrayed. We thought this was supposed to be a Christian movie. The plot and (many) issues were poorly developed. The storyline could have gone much deeper on keeping a marriage strong.

Our hopes were that we would receive a message on keeping a marriage strong. The message we received was to keep God in our marriage. However, God and Jesus were not mentioned for more than 10 minutes of this movie. Prayer was mentioned briefly.

If you are looking for a Christian movie that will move you and focuses on keeping God the center of your marriage, we highly recommend Fireproof. There is no violence, profanity or alcohol use in it. The message gets delivered with out it. We are always willing to support our African American movies, however we feel the $20 could have been spent on something else.
