4 of 4

“..to varying degrees, each of the picture's protagonists proves to be a flawed individual..”
by Kam Williams [NewsBlaze]
1.5 of 4

“..there's more humor, toying with stereotypes, playing around with miscommunication..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the performances are effective all around with director Kendrick quite moving..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : C

“..the movie starts off well enough with agreeable characters, passable dialogue, and the genial tone of an episode of 7th Heaven, but eventually devolves into over-the-top drama and a suffocating heavy-handedness..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..proves a particularly clunky, tunnel-visioned vehicle whose overbearing, overlong script nearly smothers the movie's quibble-free message: Fathers must be responsible. And what of the importance of mothers here? It often feels like a case of "Oh, them"..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..it's a blunt approach that filmmaker and lead Alex Kendrick (Kirk Cameron's "Fireproof") need not resort to as much as he does, given the ability he can flash for sentimental drama, not to mention wry humor..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
