The real "EARL" day and life keeps going from "BAD" from "WORST"!
30 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The main character is the usual atypical "My name is Earl" type of guy. Engaging and funny underachiever just trying to make it buy in life. However the things he does don't make his life any easier and make everyone else's life around him harder. Just out of jail he's trying to stop his estranged baby-mamma from leaving town with his son. She's hooked up with another "Ne're do well", who can at least keep a roof over heir head and food in their stomach. His son who's getting bullied and picked on in school. Plus he's gotta start a new job with his dad's drinking buddy, to keep from getting his parole revoked. Plus there's his grandmother, his support network who, believes he can do no wrong. All of these people will be affected by his actions this day. "EARL" doesn't have anything and he won't let anyone else have anything as well. Oh he doesn't mean to do bad things, in his heart he means well. But the road to hell is paved with good Intentions.
