Fireproof

DVD review from The Movie Snob

Fireproof (C+). I was kind of curious about this movie, so I was glad The Borg Queen decided to order it through Netflix. I had only a vague impression that it was a Christian movie about a firefighter in a failing marriage. And that is basically what it is. Kirk Cameron (TV's Growing Pains) stars as Caleb Holt, a firefighter whose addiction to internet pornography and general all-around jerkiness have run his marriage to the lovely Catherine onto the rocks. His wise, Christian dad urges him to try a 40-day program to save his marriage, and I did kind of get invested in whether he and Catherine would work things out. But the show is not particularly well-acted, and the Christian message is presented in a pretty thudding fashion. Still, its heart is in the right place, and I applaud the effort.
