If your mother in law is a religion addict then send her watch Fireproof, the romantic drama movie written and directed by Alex Kendrick and starring Kirk Cameron and Erin Bethea:
From the creators of Facing The Giants.
How far would you go to keep a promise?
How much would you sacrifice to save your marriage?
Never leave your partner behind.
“In an attempt to save his marriage, a firefighter (Krik Cameron) uses a 40-day experiment known as ‘The Love Dare’.”
That’s a movie for bigots by bigots! So if you are not of the religious kind, don’t believe the poster, and do not expect that much…
Release date: September 26, 2008.
Here’s Merriam Webster’s definition of a bigot: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices ; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance. Not sure what the movie has to do with bigotry, but I do see it shining through in your comments. Thank goodness finally a movie with a message of compassion and hope.
Actually I was thinking about the etymological sense of the word which deals more with “religious hypocrite” (look for bigotry in wikipedia) ;-P
But don’t worry, I’m not as narrow minded as you seem to think: I’ll happily bring my mother in law to watch this bigot movie, and I’ll go to the pub while she’ll be watching it! Damned one man can but seize the opportunity to get rid of one’s mother in law! Even for less than two hours…
I let you sort out what is joke and what is not :)
I definitely disagree with bigot. You may call me a hypocrite and definitely a ‘religious type”. I’m investing some time this week to pray God’s grace gives you peace, joy and understanding. I saw the movie last month at a preview. Your mother in law will love you for sending her. It is about an awful, arrogant, selfish, miserable man. Do you know one? Guess what happens! Great movie. All the best to your wonderful patient wife. I love you Bro.
Is the movie bigoted because it is Christian? Perhaps, then, you’re bigoted against christianity, by refusing to see it, or by unfairly and rashly characterizing the religion by the unfaithfulness of a few converts. How amusing. After all, it’s not who you allow to see it, but what you yourself choose to do. and it’s not that being a christian makes people perfect (duh) it’s that christianity gives hope of atonement for that imperfection.
on the other hand, using the term bigot in relation to anything is a sure-fire way to start a conversation. No one wants to be called a bigot, because we all have a measure of that element within us that should be constantly battled… and to call someone that strikes close to home and spurs retaliation. Bigot. :) just kidding.
Well if this movie was about an illegal immigrant or a muslim.. maybe even one of the 900 arrested wackos at the GOP convention… it would be a big hit with the liberal God hating coastal nut jobs.
Why is it that anyone that has a love for the Lord is lambasted by those who hate God? Judgement my friends, judgement.. and it comes to us ALL.
I cannot wait to see this movie. I am taking my entire family and will be showing this movie at a public school to a group of 238 high school juniors.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it libs! ;)
(How is that for a pun?)
Saw the movie last night…..actually could relate on a personal level. This movie is not only for those who love the Lord, but a great movie to see if your marriage is struggling. The 40 day Love Dare was such a cool idea. It’s about time that a movie of this nature is available to see instead of all the crap that’s been coming out lately. Good CLEAN movie with Great Values!
I’d have to agree with Kat’s response. Not only did it touch on the note of forgiveness, but also repentance from which comes true CHANGE. Only God can do such a thing in the life of a person and it was awesome to see it come out nice and clear on the screen.
I saw this movie a couple of days ago and felt refreshed in a way to see something wholesome, clean, and surprisingly real life issues. Now this is something everyday people can relate to. I love the consistent integrity of the movie and how the Gospel message did not succumb to the world by being ‘watered down’. I can see how Christians can appreciate this movie, on the one hand, Christians aren’t the only ones who struggle in marriages; everyone does! If the world didn’t reject God so much marriages would be a much more celebrated union of a man and woman!
Americans like to fuck around but hide behind religion… Should learn from Europeans and Latinos and do it without hiding: it would change your life for sure, and for the best! You would not have voted for Bush twice if you were sexually satisfied. I cry for you American people…
What a great movie. So nice to see something like this with a great message than most of the mindless crap that is out there. No wonder so much of Hollywood is out of touch with real America. Looking forward to more from these producers!
This movie is not the standard Hollywood glitz – how refreshing! It is a positive uplifting portrayal of the power of love through faith in God. It is easy to see through those like FlynnyBoy who criticize anything having to do with faith and Christianity. How sad that his life is so empty that he chooses to use foul language, demeaning comments, and a fake name. I voted for Bush twice and will soon vote for McCain. He appears to live in Europe somewhere – too bad that he has forgotten that he is free because Americans died to give him that freedom. If he reads this I am sure he will feel compelled to lash out again. How sad.
