There are so many things wrong with this movie I don't even know where to begin. The acting is SO bad. The situations are completely unrealistic. But most of all, the movie's "messages" make me sick. Let's recap those, shall we:
1. A woman can only find true happiness by being married to a good man who loves her.
2. No matter how messed up your marriage is you should stay married. After all, a 40-day Love Dare will fix whatever problems you have.
3. The only way to live a happy, successful life is to accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior.

So yeah: religious brain-washing at its finest.

And for the record: no I'm not some angry atheist who hates everything to do with religion. I'm not saying you shouldn't try to fix your marriage, but some people just don't belong together. If all else fails and you're both miserable, it's not helping anyone by staying together. Get divorced, move on with your life, find someone else, and die happy.

Now... you know how I saw this movie? I babysit a kid whose parents only allow him to watch crap like this. His perception of relationships and people who aren't Christian are already so perverted by things like this that he's never going to be able to see the world that is in front of him. At this point he's so far gone that his mind will never be open to new possibilities, and if he does find himself in a bad relationship he'll stay in it no matter what because that's what God wants. I read his Christian Science textbook and I'm not going to lie: THAT level of misinformation that people HERE in AMERICA are feeding to their children is criminally negligent. And that makes me SO angry. Have whatever faith you want, but when you're willfully filling your child's head with lies that's wrong. BUT I digress.

Movie = Terrible. Don't watch it. If you have it, burn it. See how "Fireproof" it is *snicker*

The only place this movie belongs is in "Fire". All copies of the movie should be thrown into fire and removed from historical artifacts so that future generations are not exposed to it.
The acting, writing, plot, directing, everything about it was absolutely dreadful. I was suckered into watching it by a colleague who had seen its high ranking on Netflix. I guess the joke was on me. I watched it with my wife and we could not get through 30 minutes of it. I've endured less excruciating pain during a root canal. If you're looking for some sort of spiritual, religious, marital or emotional message, do yourself a favor and just go to church, temple, for a long walk, buy self-help books or see a marriage counselor. This is movie-making at its worst.

I've read the other reviews, both the 1 star and the 5 star. I agree that this "film" was given high ratings simply because of it's Christian POV. I agree that the man in this "film" bends over backwards while the wife manages to not cheat on her husband.

But, my number one problem with this "film?"

*SPOILER ALERT*

Her main issue with him is his pornography problem. The director/writer ABSOLUTELY should have used the computer killing scene as the turning point. Having her "discover" what a good man he is because he spent $24,000 on a bed for her mom makes this about money. I was truly disgusted at that point. Those two scenes should have been switched, so she could say that she "can't be bought" and that he showed himself a changed man by replacing his computer with her.

It irks me to no end that it's the money that wins her over. Other than that a decent movie. But, really, we live in a society ruled by money-please don't have the hero of a "Christian film" win over his wife with that garbage!

I watched this film because 2 of my roommates highly recommended it and said it was amazing, and also that it was a good chick flick. First of all, this is not a chick flick at all. This film is very much about christianity. The reason I say it is offensive is that the theme of the movie is that people cannot truly love one another unless they love the Christian God first. As someone who is not christian, and whose roommates worked so hard convincing me to watch it, that is a very negative (and false) message. Furthermore, the acting and script are just awful. For much of the movie the actors appear to be just reading cards and barely put any emotion in at all. Better acting would be found in a super hero movie, as well as a better love story.

Most all good-intention men want to please their wives. This film like much of the marriage material today gives a clear message of a wife's need for love. I can see why women watching this movie would give it a big thumbs up. But most men already know this and feel inept in this area. The story is only mildly helpful with that. There is no insight in the other direction of a wife showing respect(love) to her husband.

The movie waste no time in pointing out his faults as well as hers. The only difference is she wouldn't have faults if it weren't for him. That is a slap in the face if you are a male viewer. Another slap is this. The main character spends 40 days jumping through hoops for his wife only to win her heart by the skin of his teeth. This must melt the women viewers but from a mans perspective this gives the impression that most guys following these steps only have a slim chance of success. Putting him on the never ending cycle of trial and error. The end result then is a performance based marriage. Certainly not the biblical view of marriage.

I know that my negative review is among hundreds of positive reviews but wives be warned. This is a one sided movie that does not help men and women understand each other.

This movie demonstrates that the guy wasn't accepted by the female until she found out he paid over $20,000. That is a poor message to be sending to women and men alike. In God's eyes both the female and male are cheaters. While neither of them physically cheated on each other, he cheated with porn, and she cheated with the doctor. He overcame his sin but she was paid to leave hers. While I believe an honest attempt was made to make a good movie, the story line got sucked into today's mainstream thinking. What a pity.

My wife and I kept hearing about how great this movie was, and how we would love it. This is just my opinion, but I though it was very poorly written, and the directing was so bad it was comical at times. Yet I continued to hear people drone on about what a wonderful movie it was. If I ever mentioned anything less than glowing praise for it, someone always said "but it has a great message." Perhaps, but it's entertainment value was poor. Want a good message? Then get this movie. Want to enjoying watching a movie? Find something else.
