Did You Know?


One of the sub plots is Andrea Roth's character Teresa trying to get pregnant. In March 2010 Roth gave birth to her first child at age 42, meaning she would have conceived circa June 2009. The movie was made sometime in 2009 and not released until April 2010, so Roth was either pregnant when it was being filmed or shortly thereafter. See more »


In perhaps the largest plot hole of the movie, at the end the deputy does not shoot the bear. Teresa contrary to what the tracker said was not in his line of fire, she was off to one side. Then the bear attacked the tracker and the deputy just stood there. He could have literally touched the head of the bear with the muzzle of his rifle and killed it, but instead he allowed the tracker to be mauled and the bear to then run away. See more »

A religious themed movie about a family bonding during a tragedy. Very cheesy but overall not too bad. I say C
8 July 2011 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"Dear God, please protect us from this storm." After receiving the news that his new book is not selling and the store he works at is going to close because of it Robert (Priestley) decides the best way to clear his head is to get on his boat with his family and get away for the weekend. While on the way to the island getaway a storm hits and the family is stuck on an island, but they are not alone. Being that this is a movie from the "Faith & Family" series, I was expecting some cheesiness from this. I was not disappointed. This is a hard movie to review. There really is no substance to this movie. The acting is pretty bad, and the movie seems to get more and more absurd. That being said, it is a religious themed movie and all of that stuff is to be expected so it can't be docked because of it. It you have seen any of the other "Faith & Family" movies you will know what to expect from this one. If you are looking for a feel good, uplifting movie this is a good one to pick, but again there is not much to this one. Overall, not good, but not bad either. A decent one time watch. I give it a C.

Would I watch again? - No I wouldn't *Also try - Letters To God & Expecting A Miracle
