Did You Know?


For the hot sauce drinking contest it was originally planned to use mouthwash and Gatorade, but it was decided to use something nonpoisonous in case others decided to try it. At first both Caleb and Wayne had just tomato juice, but for each take they added more Tabasco sauce to Wayne's. By the last take, it was pretty much entirely hot sauce. When he said "my mouths on fire" he really meant it, his running off to rinse his mouth was real. See more »


Walking toward the cross for the father and son talk, the actors pass behind a huge tree about 20 feet from the camera, then emerge perhaps 100 feet away from the camera, throwing the perspective way off. See more »


Latasha Brown: Honey, I agree with you. You gotta get out. He don't deserve you.
Deidra Harris: You can say that again. A real man's got to be a hero to his wife before he can be to anybody else, or he ain't a real man.
Ashley Phillips: Catherine, do you need a place to stay? I can't imagine living in the same house as that man.
Catherine Holt: No, I decided last night that I am not the one who's leaving. He's the problem, not me.

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.
