"Fireproof"

My wife and I went to this film last night and I have to say it was one of the best films I've ever seen. It's very engaging, with lots warmth and love. Many of the scenes are difficult to watch, particularly if, like me, they remind you of low points in your own marriage, but there is always the silver lining of hope, love and, best of all, faith. There are some very touching moments as well as suspense, excitement and a lot of humor that is far, far more hilarious than any of the garbage-filled "romantic comedies" out of Hollywood. This film delivers in a big, big way and will make you deeply contemplate your life and choices. It's not for kids, who won't understand the subject matter and might be frightened by some scenes' intensity, but it's a must-see for older teens and adult couples who are dating, engaged or married (from 1 day to 50 years and beyond). I highly recommend it.

The theater my wife and I went to was packed. There weren't very many seats empty, which was amazing. Furthermore, at least one couple (one of whom was an old college friend of my wife's, amazingly enough) came from about 90 miles away to see this film. This film is going to do really well at the box office. Probably considerably better than the predictions. I think word-of-mouth is going to really help it.
