Hard to Believe the Entire Story
3 July 2017 | by louheck-05253See all my reviews

I think doing a film about a homeless family was a great idea. How this family becomes homeless is just not very believable. In this film an advertising man "becomes a fall guy" at at work. He is lied too when they promise that after things cool down he will get his job back. Well he doesn't and he loses everything.

Now that does sound promising but the film doesn't work. Everyone comes across as a stereo type. The writing isn't strong enough for you to root for any of the people.

The "Happy Ending" of course is telegraphed long before it happens. If the person who wrote this writes anything else I hope they think more about story structure. I loved the general idea if this film I just hated the poorly done execution.

Novel Attempt.
