Did You Know?

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 »

Absolutely incredible!, 15 September 2006
Author: miked-61 from United States

This movie touched every emotion: joy, sadness, anger, confusion, peace, humor...but most of all HOPE that is found in Christ alone! People in the theater interrupted the movie with applause, MUCH laughter and most cried at some point! An incredible and exhilarating story of hope! It is incredible to realize that this first-class movie that is so well-done was birthed and produced by a church in south Georgia!! If you know someone who is struggling against the giants we face in life, or a couple who is struggling to make ends meet, or struggling to have a child, or just someone who needs to be encouraged, GET THEM TO THIS MOVIE! We need MORE movies like this! Buy some tickets and give them can affect a life or a family FOREVER!!! My church has committed to buy 1,000 tickets! We are GIVING FREE tickets to every varsity football player and coach in our area! I challenge others to do the same in YOUR area. Spread the word! This film is a MUST-SEE!
