This is one of the best movies I have seen and should be watched by everyone. The movie is geared toward fathers, but mothers (anyone who touches a child's life) can learn a thing or two as well. Children are such a precious gift to everyone and we need to guide them according to God's word. The movie is very emotional at some points but absolutely hilarious in others. I can't say enough good about it...if you haven't seen it, watch it as soon as you can. We have watched it twice already (just purchased within the last month) and the 2nd time was better than the first. The actors are terrific (Alex Kendrick is great and also a great director). Message to Sherwood Pictures and the Kendrick Brothers.....KEEP THESE TYPES OF MOVIES COMING......WE NEED MORE OF THEM instead of the JUNK that Hollywood is pushing.
I am a supervisor on a mid-western police department. I saw the movie with my wife in the theater when it came out in 2012. The audience stood up and applauded at the end of the movie at both viewings.
I purchased 20 DVD's for the Officers (I think they're all Courageous!) of my shift and offered it to them at Christmas time as a gift, if they were willing to accept it. All but 2 officers asked for a DVD. I had positive comments from those officers (men and women) after they watched it.
