Quotes:
Caleb Holt:Yeah, well, Catherine's not buying any of it.
John Holt:And why do you think that is?
Caleb Holt:She doesn't love me. She doesn't even like me. Dad, she just about ignored everything I've done.
John Holt:Are you reading everything on each page?
Caleb Holt:You mean the Bible verses at the bottom. I'm not, dad. I told you, that is not what I need.
John Holt:Then what do you need?
Caleb Holt:I need Catherine to wake up to the fact that we're about to get an ugly divorce. And I'm trying to prevent that. But I cannot do it by myself.
John Holt:That may be true. But I think you need more than that.
Caleb Holt:Dad, if you're gonna tell me I need Jesus, please don't. I don't need a crutch to get through life.
John Holt:Son, Jesus is much more than a crutch. He's become the most significant part of our lives.

Message Packaged Poorly, 10 June 2009
Author: hillari from Chicago, USA

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.
