My wife and I saw it last night and I thought it was great. Kirk Cameron did an outstanding job. I cried several times.
:) I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I think one reason I was viewing it with a critical eye is that I talked my hubby into going to it. Just when it was time to go see the movie, he said he didn't want to go. In those types of situations, I tend to judge movies harshly, because I want him to like it but fear he won't.
He did like it. He did, however, insist on leaving before the ending, but that is sort of typical for him. Once he thinks the movie is about to end, he NEEDS to leave the theater. I guess I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD before I can see if I missed anything at the end.
The theater we went to see it is was brand new, with high back semi-reclining chairs. Very comfy.
