Quotes

Wayne Floyd: I'm like a fine wine. I need about 35 years to reach perfection. The lady that gets Wayne Floyd; she'll get the complete package.
Terrell Sanders: You mean 'complete wreckage'.
Wayne Floyd: Nah. 255 pounds of pure love. All you need to make marriage work is a little bit of romance, and that comes from right here.

Better than I expected
28 September 2008 | by smachalkSee all my reviews

First of all, let me say that I am a Christian. However, I am also a movie nut. I don't go to the theater often. We have a home theater and I would much rather watch a movie at home than go out. My wife wanted to see this one in the theater. We were also being urged to support this movie by our church.

So, like I normally do, I went to IMDb and saw that after 95 or so ratings, it had a 3.6. Hmmm, not very good. I was worried but I agreed to go anyway. Besides, a movie like this is going to draw extremists on both sides and 95 isn't really a good sample size.

I was pleasantly surprised. Now, I don't see any Acadamy Awards upcoming, but the movie was done really well. I think this group has really improved since "Facing the Giants" (which was pretty good but not as good a Fireproof). The big thing I noticed is that there wasn't any sappy Christian dialog. OK, this is a Christian movie and it has a message (just like any other movie) but some of the other Christian movies I've seen have some horrible dialog. Not so here.

The plot was really good with nice character development. I thought the acting was decent too. Now there are times where you can tell this isn't a big dollar Hollywood production, but it didn't really detract from the film too much.

I won't put any spoilers in the movie but I will say that there wasn't a dry eye in the house when we got out.

So, I gave this movie a 7/10. I can tell you that we will probably buy this one on DVD. I'm really looking forward to more great work from this crew.
