Almost all locations used in the film (firehouse, hospital, houses etc.) were existing places that were donated for filming. The only area constructed specifically for the film was the area where Caleb crawls during the house fire, which was not part of the actual house. See more »

Goofs

When Michael tells Caleb that Catherine is in the fire truck bay, he is wearing a shirt with pointed pocket flaps. Once Caleb arrives to the fire truck bay, he is wearing a shirt with straight pocket flaps. See more »

Quotes

Caleb Holt: You never assume I would do anything worthy of respect! Anything honorable!
Catherine Holt: Honorable? Honorable? What were you just looking at, Caleb? What was on that computer screen? Was that honorable? Who do you think you're fooling? Do you know why your sweet little gestures mean nothing to me? It's because that's the kind of man you've become. When you're alone, that's what you default to, and there is nothing honorable about it.

Highly recommended for married couples!
27 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's how this film "imitates life": if you LOOK for flaws, you'll find some, but if you look for blessings, ways to challenge yourself and opportunities to grow, you just may find those, too.

The action sequences are exceptionally well done. A few good laughs are sprinkled in for good measure. Come Oscar time, you won't hear a word about "Fireproof", but come anniversary time, you'll be glad you and your spouse saw it.

This film will not resonate with everyone, especially if you approach it from the mindset that there are no simple truths. But anyone with a less-than-perfect marriage could benefit from seeing it--and that includes all of us, doesn't it!?
