Overview RUN TIME: 91 MINUTES RATED: PG-13 (for a scene of violence) WWW.WATERPROOF-THEMOVIE.COM WWW.CLOUDTENPICTURES.COM
Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Burt Reynolds, delivers an unforgettable performance in this incredible story of love, faith, and spiritual awakening.
Eli Zeal (Reynolds) is a bitter Jewish shopkeeper who is shot during a hold-up attempt by the 11-year-old son of a single mother in Washington D.C. Distraught and with nowhere else to turn, the boy's mother Tyree Battle, played by April Grace (Finding Forrester, Magnolia), kidnaps the wounded Zeal and along with her son, flees to her small hometown of Waterproof, Louisiana--anda family she hasn't seen in years.
Thrust into the unfamiliar world of the deep south, Zeal finds himself surrounded by Tyree's brothers--one battling a severe brain injury (Orlando Jones), the other an angry alcoholic (Anthony Lee)-her hundred year old grandfather (Whitman Mayo) and a mother of irrepressible faith (Ja'net Dubois).
But, as they work to nurse Zeal back to health, dark shadows begin to emerge from the family's past--forcing them to confront a dreadful secret that has torn them apart.
Filled with powerful performances from an ensemble cast, Waterproof is a heart-wrenching and beautiful story of the search for truth, and the power of forgiveness.

Great movie Oct 23, 2005
I love this movie! It is movie you want to watch over and over !!!!!!!!!
Some good - some bad Oct 20, 2004
This movie has so many ups and downs it is hard to rate.
I believe the fillers (parts with Burt Reynolds suffering or just lying around) waste this movie away.
There are some amazing performances by April Grace, Orlando Jones, and Ja'net Dubois, but the film just falls a little flat in my view. I think most people will enjoy the film, but I think it could have been written a little better. The beginning is a bit confusing and needed more set-up...you'll see what I mean if you watch it.
I give it three stars for the good acting by half of the cast.
I would like to see Burt Reynolds do more Christian based movies though. He was awesome in Smokey and The Bandit!
See ya next review.
Heavenly Surprise Jan 6, 2004
This movie is just a wonderful piece of human drama that echos with a heavenly chorus of redemption. If there is any movie that will move the heart this is it. The section on the making of Waterproof was such a wonderful bit of info that it is a must to review.
Very inspiring and realistic!!! Sep 24, 2003
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!!!
Not exactly "Christian"! Aug 5, 2003
If your idea of becoming a Christian is to be dunked in the baptismal waters, you might enjoy this movie. Otherwise, stay away from it. The main female character has a very rotten attitude, and her endless complaining gets old after a while. There is not word of her repenting or trusting the Lord for a change in attitude. She simply gets baptized, and we are supposed to believe that everything is different now. I would recommend you try a different movie for entertainment or spiritual edification.
