    Go see it! It's one of the best films I've ever seen. It's a very moving, emotional story with lots of hilarious moments as well, not to mention a great message. The theater my wife and I went to was packed and throughout the film, people were laughing and crying. There were audible gasps at the climax of the train scene, too. At the end, people (including myself) actually applauded, which NEVER happens up here in Minnesota. But it did with this film. It was that good.
    OPEACHMENT NOW!!!

    Dr. Phil had Kirk Cameron on Thursday to promote the movie (and the book). They had to dress Cameron's wife up for a romance scene because he won't kiss anyone but her!

    Shia LaBeouf has starred in three straight No. 1 movies. Kirk Cameron hasn't seen his face on a multiplex screen in seven years. Guess who's the hottest ticket heading into the weekend?

    Sure about that?

    In terms of advance sales, Cameron's Fireproof, an ultra-low-budget marriage-minded family drama opening on about 800 screens, has smoked LaBeouf's $105 million, opening-everywhere thriller Eagle Eye.
    Fireproof accounted for a whopping 40 percent of all advance sales this week on Fandango, the ticket service said today. Eagle Eye was a distant second, representing 17 percent of sales. (Fandango and E! Online are both owned by Comcast.)

    At Movietickets.com, the story was the same. Through Wednesday, Fireproof was leading the week with 23 percent of all advance sales. No other movie, Eagle Eye included, was even in double digits.

    I loved the show Growing Pains when I was a kid. I forgot about it in yesterday's day thread. What makes Kirk demented in your (demented) mind?
