Very well acted but perhaps a bit too dark and depressing
22 September 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Allie Raye stars as 'Charity'--a lady who is having a very, very bad day. First her car is repossessed, then she's given an eviction notice, then she is fired from her job and it keeps getting worse and worse. Despite it all, Charity tries to maintain a positive outlook--though as the film continues, it gets harder and harder.

Raye did a wonderful job in the film and despite being overweight and far from a traditional actress, her humorous and clever acting made the film far more enjoyable. I'd really love to see her in more films as she seems to have great magnetism on camera.

Unfortunately, the story itself could use a bit of work. After a while, having one bad thing after another occur became rather painful to watch. Not providing much hope by the end of the film left me feeling rather down and unsatisfied. Sure, life ISN'T always a happy ending, but I still think the writers needed to throw the audience a bone, so to speak.
