Okay, yes, this Christian film was made in 2001, but hey, it is still funny. It was directed by Eric Hannah and uses Tobymac’s song Extreme Days as its theme. It is meant to capitalize on the extreme sports film craze that happened in the early 2000s.
The story goes that four friends, Matt (Derek Hamilton), Will (AJ Buckley), Corey (Dante Brasco), and Brian (Ryan Browning) set off on a post-college (well, Jr. College) adventure. However, whilst surfing in Mexico, Corey gets a report that his grandfather has passed away and left him a great fortune. Though low on cash, the four set off on this journey where they encounter curve-ball after curve-ball, including meeting Brian’s beautiful cousin Jessie (Cassidy Rae) on their trip to Washington state to claim Corey’s inheritance.
Yes, I did say Extreme Days was a Christian film, so I know you are thinking that it is going to be cheesy, it is, sort of, but it is self-aware and does not try to be something it isn’t. It is a comedy full of antics that will have you laughing and smiling all the way through.
Iwill say, the film has an awesome soundtrack featuring Tobymac, newsboys, Tait, Sonicflood, Skillet, and many others. It is thoroughly clean and a well made production. It is perfect for a youth lock-in or movie night and I highly recommend it.
