Missed the pass, fumbled the ball.

Trivia facts stated over 400 people were auditioned for this film. Seems like they could have found one person who could act.

Story line was so predictable you could skip 90% of the film and still know the ending. Same tired cliches with no original ideas in this film. Perhaps this was the screen writer's first attempt at a script.

Character development was minimal and most were annoying enough that you wished to see them fail. You really couldn't get interested in their lives.

Lots of metaphors concerning the dysfunction of the family. Grandma disappointed in Granddaughter who was achieving the success her own daughter couldn't achieve. Father whose Son outshines him in his wife's mind. Mother who upgrades necklace like she wishes she could upgrade husband's performance in the bedroom vs. The boardroom. Daughter whose only real admiration is coming from Grandfather who took who knows what secrets to the grave.

Overall this drama is a festival of the modern dystopian family. Pass on this one.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME
Verified purchase
I haven't reviewed a movie on Amazon for a long time but I had to save my fellow movie watchers from wasting an hour and a half of their life on this one. The directing was terrible. The plot was all over the place and full of holes. The acting wasn't even good for a soap opera cast. I love a good Christian movie but this is not one of those movies. The dialog is also hard to hear in the serious quiet conversations because they have this cheesy elevator music constantly playing at too high of a volume in the background in certain scenes. Then the climatic ending with the football game fell totally flat. Instead of a movie this film played more like an after school special. It could been so much better with just a few small changes. I kept waiting for it to get better, but 87 minutes later when the credits started rolling.....I was still waiting.

Pop the popcorn, watch with the entire family.
Verified purchase
No matter your faith, this is a heart-warming movie for EVERYONE about doing the right thing. It's not preach-y and it's definitely not dry. It pops with color and personality and will be time well-spent if you view it with your household. It will provide conversation starters for the whole family about making good choices and being responsible for your actions. You might want to buy The Elijah Project workbook, too -- because as soon as the movie is over you'll want to have your own copy.

Sound quality is poor.
Verified purchase
No "sugar coating" here: an honest review. Don't buy the DVD. The music score in the background by Benjamin Stanton was very bad mixing. Mixing[background sound] is too loud and you can't understand half of the actor's voices. Sorry I can't read lips. As a sport movie I would rate this at the bottom. Instead buy "Facing the Giants." "Catching Faith" had poor script-writing.
I like Christian movies and just mixing lukewarm scenes of Christianity doesn't make it a teaching type of movie. I would compare this to a morning soap opera of three or four episodes.

Sorry for my honesty.

By the way, I have purchased over a thousand DVDs in twenty years. I have given away over half that don't meet my standards of quality and content. I will give this one away soon. I will also write a review of "Catching Faith 2" which I will also end up giving away.

Run of the mill Christian sports movie
Verified purchase
Ever since Facing the Giants came out, Christian high school sports movies keep being cranked out. This one is no different than all the rest. I don't even feel the need to say this contains spoilers. Family who "has it all" faces some hard times, troubled teens, the star football player is benched, and in the end the team wins the championship and everyone is happy. The story puts a lot of focus on the mom who is trying to overcome her own insecurities and issues, but it's all very surface level and in many cases superficial. The production quality is poor, especially the audio at times. I literally had to turn on subtitles to figure out what was being said on two occasions. Overall, it's rather slow, boring, predictable, stereotypical, and shallow.

Seriously?
Verified purchase
Pretty much the entire movie seems to be about how wonderful they think it is to report one's own family member to a school for bad behavior that the school didn't know about. There are at least two problems with this: (1) it's giving up on working things out within the family and (2) it's placing a burden on a child that other people's children won't have (unlevel playing field). People can get serious mental problems on account of being that one person whose own family reports him to subject him to penalty whenever there's a problem while the others are commonly left alone. It causes unhealthy stress and shouldn't be glamorized.

Good movie about integrity
Verified purchase
This is a good movie about integrity. The movie defines integrity as doing the right thing when no one is watching. It shows that doing the right thing can sometimes be hard and even bring some things in your life that seem like bad consequences or even make you regret doing the right thing. However in the end, things actually become better because of it. It is also about a woman whose identify is in material things and being a mom and wife. She deals with the pressure of feeling like everything has to be perfect all the time. You see the process she goes through to be delivered from that mind-set and in the end is freed to enjoy life.

Great Christian Movie
Verified purchase
We watch a lot of Christian movies and are thankful for Amazon to have so many on Prime. This was one of the better ones for sure... ended up watching with my 8 and 9 year old and couldn't have asked for better lessons in life and what it means to follow God. Saw some of the critics and can fault some of the actors but the MAIN actors, that being the family, were terrific in my opinion... grandma was a bit weak but a minor part of the family. And the MUSIC was amazing... never heard of the Dust of Men but looked them up right away... again, a great surprise as was this movie. If you love Jesus, you will love this movie.
