    Being one of the worst films I have seen in a while; Fireproof is nothing but an infuriating, preachy and religious soap opera filled with cliches and stereotypes. It has the feel of a cheap made-for-television film; but unlike made-for-television films, this is quite overlong, making it more tormenting to sit through. The acting is atrocious and the characters are absolutely annoying. When the film isn't selfishly shoving religion into the faces of the viewers, it uses dumb reoccurring jokes and unnecessary subplots in order to "entertain" viewers who aren't enjoying the film so far or viewers who wanted a different kind of film, but they ultimately fail to do so. This film may be "inspirational" to some people, but for other viewers, it's an inane and forced religious soap opera that only cares about spreading it's biblical messages rather than caring for the audience's sanity as they sit through this overlong trite of a movie. I am not against God or anything, but I just feel that this film is nothing but forced, and it just feels extra cruel for audiences to see through two-hours of insanely preachy trash. Expand

    Cameron is genuinely compelling as Caleb.

    Cameron acts like a childish jerk, even in the reconciliation phase, and the underlying reason is that he--and the movie--hates women.

    The filmmakers hedge their bets by making the young marrieds agnostic at the start of the movie, in order to turn Fireproof into a manual for eternal as well as marital salvation.
