Quotes

[first lines]
Willie: Who wouldn't be skeptical when a man claims to have spent an entire weekend with God? In a shack, no less. And not just any shack. This was the shack. What I'm about to tell you is a little on the... well, it's a lot on the fantastic side. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's not true.

The Shack
3 March 2017 | by Cole WatersSee all my reviews

The Shack was a triumph. There was not one dull moment to the movie to the shack. If you loved the book then you will love the movie. It is one of those movies where you would wish would never end. This movie has sad moments funny moments and it has a little bit for everyone to enjoy. The shack is a movie that you don't have to be a Christian to enjoy you just have to think the movie looks good have to like the book then go see the movie that everyone will be talking about. It is a brilliant movie and a work of art on the big screen.

Parents this is a PG-13 rated movie that has a lot of adult and thematic the AMA, but besides that it is a movie for the whole family will enjoy. This film is one to remember for years and years you will love it
