Fathers Day -- Coming in September!  

Posted by Benjie in ,

I recently had the opportunity to see the newest release from Sherwood Pictures (Flywheel, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof) in a preview with my Blushing Bride. For Father's Day this weekend, we'll be showing the trailer at church! (see below)

The movie releases on September 30 in theaters all over the country. If you are a Father you will want to see this movie. If you are a Mother, you will want to take the father of your children to see this movie.

Going back to their original playbook, the guys at Sherwood have opted to use lesser-known acting talents to present their story. (You'll still see familiar faces if you have caught any of their first three releases.) Don't let that bother you, though. The writing is excellent, and the acting works most of the time (which could be said of many of today's top-grossing pictures).

Four police officers and their handy-man friend start to find ways to become the kind of father that all fathers are meant to be. This movie has drama, action, and comedy. If you're like me, you will want to become a "Snake King" because of this movie!

One quick note: because this movie is produced and marketed by church-related organizations, there is a strong faith element included. For some it will be rather "preach-y". I didn't find it to be over the top, though. Partly because it is the faith message that the producers are trying to get through, and partly because, while clear and definitely there, it is not too pushy.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be glad you saw this movie. I know I did, I did, and I was.
