SCRIPT NEEDS WORK--IT WAS WEAK

This script was a weak one. I liked it that VICTOR MARX was in the movie b/c I know him & his work for many years, not as an actor but as a Christian rescuer of girls & women in Iraq & other ministries. He didn't have to act b/c the way he was in the movie is the way he is. i WAS A BIT SURPRISED TO SEE VICTOR MARX IN THIS MOVIE AFTER I SAW IT. Having said that, there were holes in the script! Having the lead guy paint a picture of a dream woman w/ the SAME DRESS she wore later on was unbelievable! Having NO explanations after HOPE saw that her guy was in Desiree's house w/ a robe on. ACTUALLY KISSING HIM LATER ON w/o any words or apologies from him is NOT REAL & sends a bad message to women to just take it instead of holding someone ACCOUNTABLE!!! The part about the seductive women dropping their jackets to reveal that they were naked before the lead guy was NOT necessary! This movie is NOT an act of worship to our LORD! I could have written more but I wanted to keep this comment short. (Added later on---this is NOT a film for children unless the parents are there pointing things out about the alcohol/alluding to sex & lack of accountability, etc)

PG to PG-13

This was a very good movie and well done. Great acting! I believe it should have been rated at least PG though, at minimum. (There are some scenes I had to fast forward through while watching with my daughter.)

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
