My Thoughts on the Movie Fireproof

Years ago when I was faced with divorce many of my online friends said that before I made my final decision, we should watch the movie Fireproof. This movie is Christian based so it may deter some people, however, me being of an open mind wanted to watch this film. While I can’t say this film deterred the inevitable amicable divorce, it did open my mind to how a marriage should work. I am sharing my thoughts on the movie Fireproof today because so many are faced with the challenge of how to reconnect with their spouse.

Happily Blended Review Fireproof Movie

About Fireproof

Kirk Cameron stars in Fireproof, as Caleb, where he is a heroic fire captain who values service and dedication to others above anything else. While he values these traits in his work life, it seems that he neglects these values within his own marriage that is about to go up in flames. As you follow along on this venture of a husband and wife longing to feel appreciated, valued and loved you will see twists and turns until one day the 40 Day Love Dare comes into play. The 40 Day Love Dare is meant to help Caleb better understand his commitment and love to his wife.

My Thoughts on Fireproof

While this may not have been something that helped my own marriage, it was something that taught me a few things about being loyal, honest and thinking of the commitment one has made to someone. Be it unresolved issues from our past or tiny issues that are left unresolved within the marriage, many forget that a relationship takes effort from two people remaining committed to their vows made on that blessed day.

I think that Fireproof opens your mind to:

  • Think differently about your marriage and spouse.
  • Start understanding that your partner’s needs matter most.
  • Realizing that marriage takes effort, even small gestures can fuel love.
  • Love is about selfless acts, regardless of how you spouse is reacting.
  • Comprehend that dedication matters in a successful marriage.

I would firmly recommend any couple watch Fireproof together for a movie night. Fireproof is one of those films that you should schedule to watch periodically throughout the term of your marriage to remind each other of the dedication and love you had for each other on that day you said your marriage vows.

There’s no need to have a religious background to watch this film, albeit a Christian based film, it goes beyond that with common sense marriage values that the average couple will appreciate.

  1. I’ve never even heard of this before! sounds interesting. Kirk Cameron was one of my faves when I was younger so I’d love to check it out!

  2. Wow, great review. found you via ProBlogger 7 day challenge in the Facebook group posts. This stood out because I’ve seen the movie too. So true, a really good one to watch periodically … I need to watch this again. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Fireproof is indeed a movie I will be watching. My partner is my ex-husband which we have been together for the past 12 years off and on. This movie would be something we both need to see. Thanks for sharing this great movie.

  4. I never heard about the movie Fireproof before. It does make me think and value my marriage. I am going to watch this movie. Thanks for the information.

  5. I have a lot of good things about this movie! I’m not married so thought it would’t apply to me but reading your review maybe it will teach me something? I may have to watch it now!

  6. Fireproof sounds like an interesting movie, but since I am in an interfaith marriage I don’t think it is about something that my husband and I are interested in. I’m sure there are some non religious elements we would enjoy, however.

  7. I’m really glad you were able to glean so much from the movie that will help you in relationships. I’ve heard many people speak highly of the movie, that’s for sure.

  8. We love this movie. My husband and I always have the workbooks we received during a workshop our Church put on after they showed the movie. We own all the movie by these Brothers and their church. Now I am in the mood to watch it again!

    1. Yes. That is how it was pitched to me all those years ago, I wasn’t raised educated on any religious beliefs. I have since grown in my own ways about that, but firmly feel Fireproof goes beyond that to the core of what a marriage should be. I hope anyone will watch this who is struggling finding that center again, what they had that day they took their vows to their spouse. Thanks for the comment!

  9. I am definitely going to recommend this movie to my parents. Maybe when my mate and I are able to we will sit down and watch this. Thank you so much for your honest review.Too many times we just write blog posts to make things appear as rosy as possible in our lives. Thank you. 🙂
