Trivia:
The producers pretty much expected a PG rating because of hard football hits and issues such as infertility, but were shocked when they were told that the rating was because of "Religious Content". They didn't appeal the board's rating, but many people were outraged. The MPAA received a record number of complaints, over 10 times more than any previous one. They later claimed that the rating was because of football violence and mature items, but many people believe that they changed their story only because of the controversy. But it turned out to be a blessing in disguise- the controversy made headlines and generated about 8 million dollars' worth of publicity for the film. Some have said that teenagers are more likely to watch a PG film anyways.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: The shadows on the title sequence are backwards. If the letters in the name "Facing the Giants" were truly back-lit by the lights in the stadium, the shadows would be upside-down, not right-side up.See more »
Quotes:
Grant Taylor:I want God to bless this team so much people will talk about what He did. But it means we gotta give Him our best in every area. And if we win, we praise Him. And if we lose, we praise Him. Either way we honor Him with our actions and our attitudes. So I'm askin' you... What are you living for? I resolve to give God everything I've got, then I'll leave the results up to Him. I want to know if you'll join me.See more »

My review of Facing The Giants, 17 September 2006
Author: marj_haa from United States

My husband & I were able to see the movie Facing the Giants in Denver at the CBA conference. I must say this was the Best movie I have seen in years. It gets you right from the start. you go from crying to cheering. The movie is packed full of family values and football. I thought "oh another football movie" I was wrong Facing the Giants is not like any other football movie I have ever seen. I came home totally on fire & excited about this movie coming out in Theaters. I have told all my friends & family about it. I have even told people I didn't even know about it. GO see the movie you wont be disappointed. Unless of course you like me don't have a theater in your area playing the movie. This makes me very sad. The movie is great. I cant say enough good about it with out giving anything away. We came out of the theater encouraged and happy. When is the last time you came out of a movie Encouraged & happy. So excited you wanted everyone you knew to go see it? My prayer now is that a Theatre near me will pick it up. Thank you.
