| Absolutely incredible!
This movie touched every emotion: joy, sadness, anger, confusion, peace, humor...but most of all HOPE that is found in Christ alone! People in the theater interrupted the movie with applause, MUCH laughter and most cried at some point! An incredible and exhilarating story of hope! It is incredible to realize that this first-class movie that is so well-done was birthed and produced by a church in south Georgia!! If you know someone who is struggling against the giants we face in life, or a couple who is struggling to make ends meet, or struggling to have a child, or just someone who needs to be encouraged, GET THEM TO THIS MOVIE! We need MORE movies like this! Buy some tickets and give them away...you can affect a life or a family FOREVER!!! My church has committed to buy 1,000 tickets! We are GIVING FREE tickets to every varsity football player and coach in our area! I challenge others to do the same in YOUR area. Spread the word! This film is a MUST-SEE!

Trivia

In the scene where Grant tells everyone the good news from Stan Schultz, there was a storm coming; thunder can be heard in one take that can be seen on the Bloopers. They didn't think that they'd be able to finish filming that day, but many people were praying about it, and amazingly the storm actually stopped just across the street and moved around them. In the Audio Commentary, Alex Kendrick said "It was like GOD said 'No you guys keep filming, I'll take care of the weather'. We could see the rain coming down across the street but it never came to the field." Interestingly, one of the lines that Grant Taylor (Alex Kendrick) say's in this scene is "I want you to know that I serve a big GOD, and he can do whatever he wants to do, however he wants to do it", which is something that they literally experienced while filming it that day.

Goofs

The WALB sports reporter states the Eagles began the season with 0 wins and 3 losses. Any team begins their season with 0 wins or losses. What the reporter should have said was that the Eagles came back from a 0 and 3 record this season to play in the state championship.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits, after "TO GOD BE THE GLORY!", some good advice follows: "FACE YOUR GIANTS!"
