5.0 out of 5 stars What a excellent movie on Marriage May 23 2009
Format:DVD
This movie focused on the way the world and pressures for status, money and other distractions contribute to the break down of good marriages. This movie really dealt with how much work marriage requires but how much it pays off. It makes you cheer for the main characters and get angry with the mother who tried to destroy. I would recommend this movie highly. Hope more movies on marriage keep coming. Bring them on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Easily Dismissed April 16 2009
By Eric Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As a fan of Taraji P. Henson ("Hustle & Flow," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"), I was curious to see what she would bring to her role as a wife dealing with a struggling marriage. My own involvement in "Fireproof," as the one who wrote the novel based on the screenplay, gave me appreciation for this important subject, and yet I'd heard little about this film. My expectations for the overall story were low.

What a nice surprise! Without being crass or gratuitous, the script allows these characters to portray real problems in believable ways. Soon after the rosy opening, in which they tie the knot with the bishop's wise words barely sinking in, they find their marriage crumbling beneath financial pressures, different goals, and a drought of physical intimacy. Dave wants a child, while Clarice is career-minded and wanting to build a comfortable lifestyle--even if it means "faking it till you make it." Dave compensates by coaching Little League, an activity that Clarice fails to understand and which allows the mother-in-law to push her way into the home.

With things already rocky, a tragic accident leaves Clarice in physical therapy and feeling bitter. Her therapist, an attractive white female, turns the head of Dave's male friends, and the bond that he builds with her becomes threatening to Clarice and to their hopes of ever rebuilding the love they once had for each other.

The acting is superb, particularly on the part of Morris Chestnut, Taraji P. Henson, and the lady who plays the mother-in-law. There's some nice comic relief, and there are a number of powerful scenes that don't always end with nice tidy resolutions. The message is one of hope and encouragement, but it doesn't feel too preachy or glib. It's a satisfying and worthy tale on a number of levels, and not one to be easily dismissed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Enjoyable Feb. 8 2009
By Derrick Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
T.D. Jakes previous novel Women Thou Art Loosed was adapted into animpressive film, five years and his follow up film Not Easily Broken isjust as good. Directed by the underrated Bill Duke whose previous work includes Hoodlum and Deep Cover, Not Easily Broken tells the story of a couple (Morris Chestnut & Taraji P. Henson) whose marriage is crisis.After a car accident, injurers Henson's character things only get worseand their marriage but more importantly their faith is tested. I watchedthe film with my wife. It was a treat to discuss the film with her onthe way out of the theater to our car. And during the ride home we cameto understand a little more about each other. The acting considering the religious material is first rate, Morris Chestnut displays the sameleading man charm he always does and fresh off her Oscar Worthy turn in Benjamin Button, Henson does wonders. Jenifer Lewis steals every sceneshe's in as the mother-in-law, and Kevin Hart provides tons of comicrelief as a life long friend to Chestnut's character. Not Easily Brokenis the kind of film that most critics will tear apart. It could be therelack of familiarity for most critics when it comes to the gospel genre.Take for example the similar marriage in crisis themed film Revolutionary Road which is currently in release and stars Kate Winslet& Leonardo Dicarpo. Winslet just won a Golden Globe for her role in Road, while critics roasted Henson's performance in Not Easily Broken.While Winslet's character differs slightly from Henson's in Not Easily Broken both give performances that any women single or married canrelate to. While Not Easily Broken does have an overlapping religioustheme, anyone no matter what your religious beliefs willing to givethis film a chance will be pleasantly surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, but worth watching.... April 6 2009
By T. Kenard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
And I only say 'predictable' because after seeing the trailers/commercials, you see the movie is one of those 'doesn't miss what she has until it's gone' type of things. Chestnut plays a husband who has fallen on hard times in his career & only longs to have children, while his wife, Henson, plays a corp.ladder-climbing woman who can't tolerate anything less than the 'all that 'life-style & has no time for children. But instead of trying to work on the relationship w/her hubby, she uses him for her whipping post, only compounded when her 'mother from hell' arrives (J. Lewis is ALWAYS amazing in her roles - this fit her perfectly!)& they kinda mother-daughter tag team him until he snaps under the weight. THEN when Henson suspects hubby of leaning toward someone else who'll give him the time of day, she FINALLY sees the bitchiness of her & her mother's ways (Duh!), she goes after her man & begs forgiveness. I like 'relationship' movies w/a message, so this was all good. Nothing wrong w/food for thought.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Message from T.D. Jakes July 7 2009
By Hillari Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The couple in this movie appear to have a good marriage. The husband has his own business, and he's a volunteer coach for a little league team. His wife is in real estate, and she's moving up the career ladder. But the husband wants kids, and the wife feels children would get in the way. Plus, she is resentful of the time he spends with the little league team. The husband also doesn't seem to take his wife's feelings into consideration. After a car accident, their marriage experiences cracks that threaten to pull them apart.

It did seem to me that too much emphasis was put on the wife having to compromise. Overall, the subtle Christian message about keeping marriages strong is good. However, the script should have put more emphasis on the husband making bigger efforts to meet his wife halfway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good message but missing.... June 10 2009
By A. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I love stories like this and overall the movie was okay I just felt like it opened a lot of topics and ended with only one resolution to one issue. For instance, does his friend ever grow up and let go of his playerish ways? What happens to the mother after she is kicked out? Is the mother daughter relationship better or do they stop talking? Does she find the strength to forgive or does she remain bitter? Does the woman learn to cope with her loss? Will she be okay or does she wither away from the pain? I had so many questions afterwards and I felt the movie could have done a better job at tying it altogether. Good movie with a good message but lacking in some aspects.
