Fireproof has to be one of my favorite movies!! It’s about a firefighter named Caleb Holt and his wife Catherine, who are having severe marital problems and the way that God works through Caleb’s father and also a fellow firefighter, Michael, to help Caleb try and save his failing marriage.
I wouldn’t recommend this movie for young children, due to some of the issues they touch on and accident scenes.
I don’t want to spoil this movie for you if you haven’t seen it yet, but below are a couple of my favorite quotes from the film.
Caleb: “Look, marriages aren’t Fireproof, sometimes you get burned”
Michael: “Fireproof doesn’t mean that the fire will never come, but that when it does come, you’ll be able to withstand it.”
Michael (talking to Caleb): “Don’t just follow your heart, man, ‘cause your heart can be deceived. But you gotta lead your heart.”
I watched this again just the other day, and several things that stood out to me that caused a lot of the problems in their marriage were –
– No Communication
– Sin (which leads to guilt and anger)
– Not taking responsibility – blaming the other all the time.
I hope this review is helpful to you and I would love to hear what your personal opinion on this movie is 🙂
