Fireproof | 2008 | PG | - 3.3.0

A husband (Kirk Cameron) and a wife (Erin Bethea) whose paths have grown farther and farther apart try to find a way to stay together by using the counseling found in a book called the "Love Dare." Also with Harris Malcom, Phyllis Malcom, Ken Bevel and Jason McLeod. Directed by Alex Kendrick. [2:02]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A husband and a wife kiss and hug. A husband and a wife flirt with each other and talk about having a "hot date."
 After watching a man and a woman talking to each other, a woman remarks, "I think the doctor has a thing for her." A man compliments a woman's outfit and says she's "amazing." We hear a little girl talking about wanting to marry her father.
 A man and a woman hold hands. A man dances in front of a mirror and pretends he's dancing with a woman and talking to her seductively.
 A picture of a woman appears on a computer screen with a button that reads, "Wanna see?" and we see a man trying to fight the temptation to click it.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Fire trucks speed to a structure fire, we see firefighters inside the building, and they are separated by falling debris: one is carrying an unconscious girl, he runs into a room, breaks out the floor with an ax as flames pour in, lowers the child into the hole, crawls down and along the ground, kicks out a grate and gets out of the building (we see him being bandaged at the hospital later).
 Two cars with two teenagers in each race down a road, and we see crumpled wreckage later; one car is stuck across railroad tracks (we see the passenger unconscious and the driver with blood on her face), a train approaches, several men lift the car off the tracks as the train speeds by and one man is nearly crushed between the train and the car.
 A man kicks over his garbage can and then throws it against a wall. A man strikes his garbage can repeatedly with a baseball bat. A man destroys a computer and monitor with a baseball bat.
 A husband and a wife argue bitterly, the husband walks toward her, and she backs against a wall and he yells close to her face. A wife accuses her husband of looking at "trash on the internet" and yells at him. A husband yells at his wife and says "don't get smart with me." A man confronts another man about trying to steal his wife, and he makes a fist and holds it to the man's face. A man receives divorce petition papers and cries. A fire captain yells at a firefighter for leaving his partner in a burning building (we do not see the fire and no one is injured). A man talks harshly to his mother in several scenes, and is dismissive. A man says, "Lust is adultery and hatred is murder."
 Two men have a competition where they time themselves drinking a jar of red pepper sauce and one man complains about how hot it is, runs out of the room and complains about the repercussions of having drunk the sauce later.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
