Storyline

Payday, a Barbadian comedy-drama/buddy film showcasing a raw slice of Barbadian community life. Romie, an aspiring mechanic and ladies man, with his brutally honest best friend Pack, invest their entire salaries in a down-payment on a garage. Their goal: to establish a successful mechanic's shop to get away from their boring jobs as security guards, their loving yet eccentric and demanding families, and poor standard of living in their village - Pickletons. Their simple task of making the down-payment to the garage owner at the village lime that night is hilariously complicated by Romie's love-life, and Pack's love for cannabis. The complications and laughs multiply as the best friends go to extremes to avoid violent drug men, a charity collector, crazy ex-girlfriends and other wacky villagers.

A Comedy Which Had Me Laughing From Start To Finish
5 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

When someone usually hears about a low budget movie they usually associate it with poor acting, a weak plot and it basically gets categorized as being a complete waste of time. Now although the above is usually true, we must also realize that there are sometimes exceptions to the rule, and "PayDay" is a production which delivers in many areas where many international "big budget" films have failed.

I think I should first let you in on a little secret, and that's the fact that I'm a huge movie critic. Having said that, for PayDay to receive a 7/10 rating from me in the comedy genre pretty much means it had to deliver more laughs than the average production while having the audience wanting more even after the film had run its course.

In summary without disclosing the events of the production i would say the movie was "A very entertaining experience with a moderate story line,excellent characters and overall a splendid performance."

You won't regret watching this movie unless laughing causes you serious discomfort and pain ;-)

Thumbs up to "PayDay" and I'll be looking out for the sequel.

Good job!

7/10
