Christian film made for Hollywood, not the other way around.
3 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This film was heavily hyped in the Faith Based community by email campaign and advertising on many web sites. I didn't want to leave an early review, as I didn't want to dissuade people from it, but I have to be frank; this film doesn't help much of anyone. It doesn't even hit the self-proclaimed target of being honest about marriage problems very well. It claims to be the 'best film about Marriage since Fireproof'; no way! There is far more to making a marriage work than just physical fidelity. There are better relatively low- budget faith-based films about marriage (albeit not theatrical releases) right now: Redeemed—Grace Abounds and The War Within just to name two. The former of the two deals honestly with real fidelity, and the latter with emotional fidelity. If you want to know how to fix a marriage, watch one of them! I really don't believe that was the film's true intent; I think it was an attempt at making a Christian film that Hollywood would embrace; if so, it had to fail. Hollywood could not help but ignore it; they already do sleaze better—so it's not 'cool enough' for them. The Faith- based community can't love it either; it's based loosely on the life of nobody's hero; Solomon. So what are we left with? An updated story about someone we don't (or shouldn't) even want to know. I can't blame the actors; to play a proud pompous jerk, you have to become one. Sorry.
