Not really movie worthy

I gathered 25 youngsters (of my sons' friends) and we went to see this together. We left very confused. And dissappointed that we'd spent so much money on seeing this "movie." We love the shows like "When the Game Stands Tall," "Facing the Giants," "Fireproof" and "Courageous" and watch them again and again. This one, however, had no plot and was simply boring. I hate to give it a bad review because I love the purpose and passion behind the Kirk Cameron's motive in creating this movie. However, I also cannot allow other unsuspecting parents to spend that much money on something I honestly wouldn't even rent on DVD. Most of the kids we brought fell asleep. The ones who didn't asked exactly what I was wondering, "What was that about?" Kirk Cameron is a great actor. I'm still confused as to how he thought this was a good idea.
