Goofs

In the train scene, they are unable to stop the train so they have to lift the car off the tracks. The Train passes at full speed (or what we deem to be full speed). At the very end of the sequence, in an areal shot, we see the train on the other side of the crossing. It could not have stopped that close to the emergency scene if it was going at 'full speed' when they were moving the car off the tracks. See more »

Quotes

Michael Simmons: But just remember: a woman's like a rose; if you treat her right, she'll bloom, if you don't, she'll wilt.
Caleb Holt: Where'd you get that?
Michael Simmons: Counseling.

Christians and Non-Christians alike should take a hint from this movie
26 September 2008 | by purplejoy716See all my reviews

I just got back from seeing this movie opening night. Of the 300 seats, 100 of them were presold and we were told to get there early. I was excited to hear that so many people were supporting this movie on its opening weekend. It's message will hit close to home with so many people. With the high divorce rate these days, I agree that all people should view this movie. I'm not married myself, but it touched me so much because I saw in it the relationship my parent's have had for years. And while it focuses on the husband changing his ways in order to win back his wife, it also touches on wives changing their ways to win back their husbands. There may be many stereotypes shown in this movie, but that comes with movies trying to touch the world. Without stereotypes, we might not understand it so well.

Overall ratings: Plot - 10, Cinematography - 9, Acting - 6 (due to using only one professional actor, kudos to the church members for holding their own)
