The first is the interesting bit that Kirk Cameron refuses to kiss any woman but his wife, even when acting . So the filmmakers of Fireproof had to have his actual wife stand in for the actress, and the scene was filmed in silhouette. I guess that is understandable, but I think that if you make this kind of commitment you really need to re-think playing roles that involve kissing. Maybe that's why Cameron hasn't done much acting recently; he's got the face for a romantic lead, but he refuses to kiss, hence a problem.
The second story is that the book from Fireproof , "The Love Dare," has been made into a real book . I'm actually surprised that this took so long to be announced, as it seemed like a natural marketing tie-in. You can read the first chapter online , and it looks like a basic marriage counseling kit. The first chapter says stuff anyone could tell you about having a good relationship; ie. be patient and don't fly off the handle every time your partner does something you don't like. Easy stuff, but sometimes having a book to remind you helps you put it into practice. Best of all, its cheap, only $9.99.
So go see Fireproof! Don & I can't make it this weekend so we're going to shoot for next weekend and a review about a week later. Enjoy!
