Quotes

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.
Deidra Harris: That's right, girl, stand your ground. Make him respect you. If there's one thing a man understands...

Good story, bad movie.
14 February 2009 | by adc8484See all my reviews

Okay, the acting and the whole production of the movie is just average...nothing special. So if you can't stand low-budget movies, don't even bother watching Fireproof. HOWEVER, the whole story of this movie is amazing. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is married, or who is looking to fix their marriage, or even just their relationship. This movie is packed with advice, and tips on how to love your partner, even when the relationship is falling apart. Yes, it is a Christian movie, but you don't have to be a Christian to watch it. I'm not religious in any way, but I kinda liked it. Also, LADIES, prepare to bawl. This movie will most likely make you tear up. Seriously. Once you get past the bad acting, and everything else, you really start to get into it, and you feel for the characters. It's really sad what the guy goes through, just to save his marriage. Basically, if you want to see a really good love story, with lots of values and morals in it, and you don't necessarily care how bad the acting is, this is the movie for you!
