A story with purpose and depth. Each character is excellent! Watched every bit of extra footage and commentary. Will watch it again and again.

"This is an adorable feel-good movie. The story begins with an armed robbery of a grocery in Washington D.C. A 10-year old African-American boy ends up shooting a somewhat elderly Jewish man. What follows is an poignant journey to Waterproof, LA--home of the boy's mother, and a place that offers both pain and healing. At its core, this is a story of redemption for all of the characters--and there are many.Waterproof offers tender, yet sturdy spirituality. It points to truth as the ultimate medicine to heal troubled lives. While well-meaning lies unravel, truth brings pain and shame, but also freedom and hope.The acting is powerful in its subtlety and believability. The characters let the plot and dialogue carry the story along, rather than forcing their talent to overshadow this incredible tale. There is emotion--real and dramatic--but its never shrill--never coerced.The bottom line is that this is a family movie with strong story and acting. There is much here that will draw out discussion and thought. Buy, rent or borrow this film--but see it!"
Very inspiring and realistic!!!

"The promos of this film state that this "...a soulful saga of redemption and forgiveness, played to perfection," and I couldn't agree more.In one of his rare moments in films lately, Burt Reynolds portrays "Eli Zeal," a shopkeeper who learns about forgiveness and that is truly human to make mistakes. With an ensemble cast which includes April Grace, Whitman Mayo, Orlando Jones, Ja'net Dubois, and Anthony Lee, this is a marvelous film and it is filled with powerful performances from this cast.The movie is heartwrenching and the music is equally phenomenal in its depiction of life in the deep South. Prepare yourself for some profound story telling. Highly recommended!!!"
Great turn out from a small budget movie!

""Waterproof" is the story of people finding themselves, whether is be through hardships or unexpected mishaps. This is a great story, as is the portrayals of the characters. It's nice to see Burt Reynolds in such a deep role (following previous movies which gave him slightly shallow roles). April Grace is marvelous. Perhaps most noteworthy is that the production value is surprisingly strong for Cloud Ten Productions (which normally puts out less-than-top-quality films). This film would've easily been a box office hit. I would DEFINITELY recommend it!"
