Gregg's Review

I thought it was interesting. When I see a movie that starts with the word case I think of a Sherlock Holmes or that type of a movie and this was something very different.

This is The Case for Christ, a movie about believing in Jesus Christ, who I do as well. And this is a great example of a movie that I would see again and again.

Tim's Review

They also were able to get enough skin out of the situation to fix this hand, perfectly back to normal. This they're saying has sort of been so damaged by the fire down to the core bone structure of my hand that it's basically a useless...there's no point in fixing this hand. So that hand...forget about that hand.

Gregg's Review

I would not say it's better than the original Smurfs because the original Smurfs movie featured the voice of Jonathan Winters from It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. I would still say it's a smurf, smurf, smurf, smurf world with this movie because it's a lot of fun.
