Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that a powerful grassroots marketing campaign has helped turn this Christian-themed indie drama about a fireman with a troubled marriage into a hit. While the content is age-appropriate for older tweens and up, the marriage-centric story isn't likely to interest them. The plot includes mention of online porn (it's frowned on, of course), but viewers don't really see anything salacious. Marriage is portrayed as tough and often devoid of love, affection, or respect, but something that Christians are expected to endure anyway. Non-Christian viewers might be uncomfortable with some of the movie's dialogue and themes; on the flipside, at least it skips some of the raw language and sex in other Hollywood firefighting movies (like Backdraft).

Sexual Content

Caleb surfs the Web for online pornography (never shown), and some dialogue hints that his wife isn't very responsive in the bedroom.

Violence

An offscreen car wreck yields maimed victims; perils of an impending train crash. A firefighter rescues an unconscious child from a raging inferno, getting singed in the process.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Caleb -- who's a courageous lifesaver in his day job but not very humble about it -- rises above his personal flaws to be a better person, even it it's too late for his marriage. Some diversity among characters.

Consumerism

A tie-in Love Dare book exists; the movie can't help but feel a bit like a promo for it.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In one scene, firemen drink hot sauce to test their machismo. In real life, a stunt like that recently killed a man.
