Before you go n you next date you need to watch the movie FIREPROOF. I watch it several times a year.

thumbsup Good movie.
And I like that the main character would not kiss the woman playing his wife in the movie, so they worked it out so that when there was a kiss, it was his real wife, with the video shot done from a distance so the audience couldn't tell it wasn't the same woman. Talk about not letting anything get in the way of honoring your marriage vows. Impressive!

The (church) group who made this movie has others out there as well. Facing the Giants, Flywheel, Courageous. They don't have a huge budget to spend like Hollywood does, but at least when you watch movies from this group, you get to see a man leading his family spiritually. Good movies for a family to watch, especially for single moms who don't have a Catholic male role model around for their kids to see.

Facing the Giants at least has portions of believable acting.

By and the large these movies are an offense against Art - and in so being constitute manifest offenses against a truly Catholic worldview.

If Christian culture is ever to be restored in the West it will be despite, not because of, drivel like this. Read the Screwtape Letters; the Enemy's favorite hunting ground is banality.

I tried to watch Fireproof because it came so highly recommended. I got about to the part where the old man started on with the protestant "40 days" thing to his son and turned it off. I didn't find it edifying.

Wow, tough crowd.

I LOVE to read, but sitting down with one's kids and wanting to watch a family friendly movie on occasion, well....the pickin's are slim.

The acting is not super in these movies because the actors/actresses are the actual members from a church (kind of cool, if you ask me). So if you put any of these movies up against anything made with a hollywood budget, yes, they won't come even close.

And I actually liked the faithfulness in these movies. My kids got to see a man praying, on his knees at times. Another scene (in Courageous) has a dad take his daughter out for dinner, presenting her with a ring (like a chastity ring), letting her know that God loves her and she should never settle (for a knucklehead, which there was one in the movie). Great scene for both my daughters and son to see....that a dad is a girls protector, and that God has great plans for his beloved.

And in Fireproof, I liked that they took the HUGE issue of porn and tackled it head-on, as well as having a private 'friend' of the opposite gender while married. Both are big issues in marriages these days, and what a great way for a couple to view a Godly way to deal with it all.

I still give ALL the movies by this group You get a Gold Star! You get a Gold Star! You get a Gold Star! You get a Gold Star! You get a Gold Star! and I still check them out from the library for us to watch once in awhile.

I do not follow your (above) logic. It simply does not follow that Art corrolates to a "truly Catholic worldview". And I hardly imagine that the movie is an offense to God.
Dear God...

The movie was poorly done but the message it speaks is wholesome and good in terms of the marriage depicted in the film and their means to healing and sanctification.

an artist,

I enjoyed watching it, the same was facing the Giants and Courageous. The second with our Catholic youth group in Spain and the later one here in the US with Youth For Christ. While our Catholic Priest told us of the many protestant ideas in it, we discussed with him, it was some good enjoyable movies & I would recommend them.
