My review this week is on a movie that is sure to be making an appearance on
a lot of blogs. (I actually got the idea to see this movie from another blog!)
The movie is called Fireproof.
...."Fireproof doesn't mean that a fire will never come, but that when it comes, you'll be able to withstand it." ....
Capt. Caleb Holt is a veteran firefighter in the Albany, Ga., fire dept. According to him, everybody thinks he's a hero except his own wife. "How is it that I get respect everywhere I go except in my own house?" he complains. His wife, Catherine, has had it up to here with Caleb's thoughtlessness and selfishness. In comes a doc who's just caught her eye at the hospital she works at.
Their years-old marital promises are the furthest thing from either one of their minds, and the idea of divorce has suddenly reared its ugly head.
But Caleb and Catherine don't think the prospect is that ugly. Ugly to them would be staying together and continuing the ongoing fighting and misery that has become their lives. She pulls the trigger and gets a divorce attorney, and Caleb's ready to let the bullet hit him. But then his father decides to do a little compassionate meddling. He gives Caleb a handwritten journal of sorts that shows how 40 days of "trying" in just the right way might change everything.
Dad calls it the "Love Dare," and Caleb reluctantly decides he's got nothing to lose. So he starts with Day 1. ...
This Movie has been helping marriages everywhere.
