Based on the love story of two devout Christians, the movie version of "The Vow," starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, strips the tale of its overt religious themes, which has some Christian reviewers concerned.

The worst is when they take a classic like Narnia and try to make it secular. Just think of how successful that series would have been if they had actually remained true to the book so many Christians adore.
With “Soul Surfer” they didn’t change it that much, and look how popular it was.
Bad example. Soul Surfer made 43 million in it’s entire run. “The Vow” made 59 million in 5 days so far (as of Wednesday). My wife and I saw the movie and it is good. Go see it. It is a nice story.
Next they will produce a heart-warming story about the life of Mohammed. They will, of course, leave out any hint of Islam.
It didn’t cost that much to make Soul Surfer, and most Christians I know didn’t see it in theatres - they didn’t even know about it! - but quite a few of them bought the DVD.
I never heard of it until it hit Redbox, and a Christian friend on Facebook told how she bought it for her kids.
