This movie is awful
30 December 2014 | by bless174See all my reviews

I'm a Christian and feel like movies like this one are the exact reason Christian movies fail. The whole movie was under developed on every aspect. It's as if the writer had a general idea of what the movie was about but no idea how to bring it realistically to life. I watched this with my family (4 kids) whom my husband(of 21 years) is a 3 year recovered alcoholic. My mom was married 3 times, my own father was/is absent, step father - abusive alcoholic, last step father was an amazing man... All this to say we all found this movie stupid, unrealistic, and emotionally so detached we actually wanted to fling the disc off the side of the mountain. There are much better family movies, find another, this one is so freaking dumb, honestly.
