Trivia

Though Sherwood Pictures produces movies, they are primarily a ministry. For Fireproof, almost everybody involved was a volunteer- over 1,000 people. Every day they began with devotions and a time of prayer. At first a movie on marriage was not what Alex Kendrick was inclined to do, but he felt that GOD was leading him that way. To do a movie, both he, Stephen Kendrick, Jim McBride and Michael Catt all have to be in agreement with it. See more »

User Reviews

 
Highly recommended for married couples!
27 September 2008 | by kentmeisterSee all my reviews

Here's how this film "imitates life": if you LOOK for flaws, you'll find some, but if you look for blessings, ways to challenge yourself and opportunities to grow, you just may find those, too.

The action sequences are exceptionally well done. A few good laughs are sprinkled in for good measure. Come Oscar time, you won't hear a word about "Fireproof", but come anniversary time, you'll be glad you and your spouse saw it.

This film will not resonate with everyone, especially if you approach it from the mindset that there are no simple truths. But anyone with a less-than-perfect marriage could benefit from seeing it--and that includes all of us, doesn't it!?
