Trivia

The house that was burned was a real one that needed to be removed for development in the area. Shingles and other items had to be removed in order to burn it safely. One of their maintenance people who helped prepare it had actually lived there once, he had grown up in it. Most of the smoke inside the building was digitally added later. Kirk Cameron (Caleb) really did chop the hole through the floor with the ax. See more »

Goofs

When Caleb's father tells him that Caleb's mother was the one who did the Love Dare, the two men are on a long path in the middle of the woods, at least several hundred yards from Caleb's house. Caleb, an athletic fireman, immediately sprints back to his house to apologize to his mother. However, his father, an old man nearly twice his age, arrives at the house about 10 seconds behind him and is not even out of breath. See more »

Message Packaged Poorly
10 June 2009 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

The message -- that divorce should never be an option and marriages should be saved -- is a great one. Unfortunately, it was presented in a poorly written, badly acted, low production budget fashion. There were three different characters (Caleb's dad, a co-worker of Caleb's, and a nurse at the hospital where Caleb's wife worked) who preached every time they were on screen. Why did it take three characters to represent the same Christian theme, when one would have been enough? Whenever I saw them, I sighed and thought, "Here comes the sermon." I had little sympathy for the couple, Caleb and Catherine. The husband was a spoiled, inconsiderate brat, and his wife was a wimp who put up with way too much off of him. The Wayne character, designated as comic relief, was annoying, not funny. I'm a Christian, and I appreciate that a church made this film. However, the "beating people over the head with a Bible" approach doesn't work any better on film than it does from over-zealous people witnessing to people on the street. There are good films that have Christian themes, but unfortunately, this is not one of them.
