This week offers two treats for film-goers: Irreplaceable and Moms’ Night Out. Unfortunately, I have not been able to go to screenings of either, so rather than reviewing them here, I’m simply letting you know that both films are pro-family with Christian values. Knowing the reputations of some of the film-makers, both films will be solid both in the area of values and entertainment.
A beautiful documentary about the importance of the family, co-produced by Focus on the Family with many Christian and Catholic filmmakers and experts, Irreplaceable has a one-day, one-time theatrical evening showing in mainstream theaters:
Tuesday, May 6th in the USA,
and Wednesday, May 7th in Canada.
The film is not rated; Focus on the Family recommends it for teens 15 and older because topics such as sexuality and family issues may be spoken about too explicitly for children.
From the film’s website:
What is Irreplaceable About?
Every member of the human race has the desire for significance—a desire to belong. And the family is where those deepest longings are fulfilled.
Unfortunately, the word “family” has all but lost its meaning in our modern cultural landscape. And the fallout has been significant. Divorce. Crime. Poverty. Addictions. Abuse. Our attempts to redefine and reimagine the family only make these problems worse, not better. When the family is weakened, society suffers. But strong families make the world a better place!

And a family comedy…
Opening on May 9th, in time for Mother’s Day weekend.
