This past Saturday evening we went to see "Fireproof." This was written and produced by the same church that made "Facing The Giants", Sherwood Baptisit Church When we began to watch "Facing The Giants" the acting showed signs that it was produced by nonprofessional actors. However, the characters and story line pulled us in and before we knew it we completely forgot the acting. The budget for the 2006 hit was only $100,000, not exactly a Hollywood budget. But many in Hollywood became envious of the $10 million the movie made in the theaters and the additional $12.5 million from DVD sales.
"Fireproof" had a cast and crew of over 1,200, of which all were volunteers. The budget this time was $500,00000, a large jump from their last endeavor.
There are so many parts of this movie I would love to share with you, but I don't want to ruin any part of it. The movie reminds us that fireproof doesn't mean you won't go through fires, just that you are able to withstand the fires you will go through.
