Trivia

The hospital where Sean knocks his shoulder back into place wasn't a hospital at all, it was the lobby of the church seen earlier in the film. They were trying to find a real hospital to use, but couldn't seem to find a suitable one. Eventually they had the idea of using the church lobby. It was a wild idea, and they weren't sure if it would work, but they fixed it up to look like a hospital room and it worked well. See more »

Goofs

(around 7 min.) When Allyson pulls up to the church, the camera is reflected on the car near the rear-view mirror. See more »

Quotes

Allyson: I'm a failure. I have failed again. That's all I do. I had a plan. I was gonna help myself and help my friends unplug and have fun, and then Bridget happened, so then I thought I could fix that, too, and instead... I can't. I can't get in front of it. No matter how hard I try, no matter how much I give, I'm just... I'm not enough.
Bones: For who?
Allyson: What?
Bones: Not enough for who?
Allyson: I mean, Sean, the kids, for my mother, God, everybody. I don't know. You?
Bones: Not enough for you? I was raised in church. This might ...

Decent but not awesome
6 September 2014 | by solid-rock800See all my reviews

I thought this movie was alright overall.

Things I liked: - Christian message was nice & not painfully in-your-face or eyeroll-inducing (I'm a Christian but find this is often a flaw in Christian movies) - Many of the jokes were pretty good - Several of the characters were rather likable - Managed to stay away from most Christian stereotypes that annoy me (for example, like Shirley from Community or that chick from The Mist)

The downsides: - It got cheesy toward the end. I managed to refrain from rolling my eyes for most of the movie, but the last few scenes broke that. - A bit too traditional in gender roles for my liking, but I could live with it. - WAAAAY over the top with the whole "hysterical mom" stereotype. This was the main thing in the movie that got on my nerves & took my opinion of it down a notch or 2.

So yeah, it's not a bad movie, and I got a few good laughs out of it. I'd say if someone else was dying to watch it, I'd watch it with them, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
