Okay, yes, this Christian film was made in 2001, but hey, it is still good. 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 two thousands.
The story goes that four friends, Matt, Will, Corey, and Brian 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 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, well, actually, it is not. It is a comedy full of antics that will have you laughing and smiling all the way through. 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.

If you would like to order your paperback copy of my debut novel Cacophony: A Tale Of Faith And Fear, click here. It is an incredible paranormal thriller about a group of demons trying to steal human souls by assaulting their church. The Messenger Gabriel, a Guardian angel Christopher, and the Seven Archangels are sent by God to stop them. It’s a tale that mixes drama, supernatural fiction, with a dash of fantasy.
