Storyline

After years of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are, Dave and Clarice Johnson have finally reached a breaking point in their marriage. When Clarice is hurt in a car accident, the obvious truth that more than just her injuries need immediate attention is exposed. Their odds of making it worsen as Clarice begins to see a physical therapist, and Dave develops a friendship with Julie and her teenage son Bryson. The acceptance and comfort he finds in them stirs his longing for a family and a passionate partner. As temptation tugs at Dave and Clarice pulls farther away, they must confront whether their vows are or are NOT EASILY BROKEN. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Dave Johnson: Down through history men have always been measured by how hard they work and cultivated, how well the protected their wife and children. In the old days woman saw their man as conquerers, providers, heroes. But somewhere along the line that change, woman started to became their own hero, maybe it was because their man forgot to be relic or because woman don't want to be protected anymore or maybe woman had to be their own hero because of the pain they had to endure in life.

Not Easily Broken
5 February 2010 | by d-henry68See all my reviews

People should judge this movie on it's message and not their own personal beliefs. The message of the story was to remain faithful in a marriage, to keep God central in it, to be strong enough to say you were wrong and strong enough to walk away from those who give wrong counsel regardless of who they are. It doesn't mean you don't love the person. It also shows how to get proper counsel or at least to be strong enough to seek it out.

As for violence etc. what do people think the real world is like ? People do not live wrapped in cotton wool, not exposed to the hardships and wrongs in this world. If people are not exposed to that which is bad and wrong, how then can they recognise something right and good? I am proud to call myself a Christian however I live in the real world and know it's not all sanitised. Some people should travel outside their own little world. I have been exposed to the other side but I still know and love my maker! That stuff will not make someone go bad.

this movie shows real commitment and love. Highly recommended! Hope you enjoy it! Sorry for the rant but some reviews were not reviews they were used as an opportunity to preach. Enjoy the movie and judge for yourself! It's made to appeal to all and in a way the viewer does not feel preached to. Cheers
