Jonathan and I watched Fireproof a few weeks ago.

As a Christian, I’m probably supposed to love this movie.  However, it was exceptionally painful for me to watch. 

While I readily admit that the movie has a good message, it was buried beneath HORRIBLE acting.  It was so bad that Jonathan and I couldn’t help but make fun of it throughout. 

Beyond that, though, Kirk Cameron’s character in the beginning of the movie reminded me far too much of my ex-husband.  It was traumatizing to watch him scream at his wife.  It took me back to places I don’t like to remember…

Like most good movies, Fireproof had a happily ever after ending.  But not all marriages are salvageable.  It takes TWO willing people to work on a marriage.  I obviously didn’t have that luxury.

In the end, I DO recommend the movie for its content, but it’s not one I’ll be watching again any time soon.

One Response to “Fireproof”

  1. Yeah, it’s pretty poor acting… rather like an after-school special. I’m really sorry you had the traumatic experience of sort of re-living some terrible experiences. However, remember that God has redeemed a life that was miserable and given you joy again, including a wonderful man of God who loves you well.
