I loved Kimberly Elise in this role. A great true story of leaning on others in the hard times. She had a gift, 3 great sons and good friends all around her. Her good works turned around on her and doors opened at the right time for a good reason. I was a bit frustrated that she fought so hard against getting help but mistrust, defeat and disappointment can grow deep roots of resistance. Ultimately the doors opened, she stepped through and got to keep her home. I am glad she did resist going up to a Hotel room with Melvin. The message of "I helped you, now let me help myself to your body" bothered me. No man I know is satisfied just sleeping beside a woman or just holding her. While realistic since all that kissing leads to feelings, I am glad she kept making those cakes and slept alone on that couch. Hopefully she and Melvin partnered in marriage and life. Good example for a Church going woman with influence with three young men watching. I hope her faith was always in God. He is an amazing father who loves to bless his children. I think the end of the movie should have included an after story comment or two. But we can all look her story up on the internet. Encouraging story. I loved that this movie had all colors of people helping each other. Enjoy!!

Sure it's an uplifting story, but this lady takes mulishly stubborn to a whole other level. You'd think she'd cave in after the 5th offer of help but no....just no.... even though her kids are going hungry. Come on. Did not finish.
They really push the whole 'saintess' image on this lady, going a bit overboard on the whole volunteering for women in trouble and being such a faithful church parishioner... when in real life the original story is of a woman who is a model and out-of-work actress, a bit more regular human. Here she's a bit too goody-too-shoes and not enough grey. And the recipe? **Spoiler alert:** Not from her grandma but from a friend she later perfected.
This movie has been overly washed into a childlike Hallmark story.

Nothing Beats A Failure But A Try.

What an inspiring story for those second guessing themselves. Desperation sometimes is the largest motivating factor when contemplating taking that leap of faith. Believing in ourselves is something more of us should learn to do and that includes me.

SPOILERS AHEAD!! : I really wanted to rate this movie higher, because I did enjoy the film. I felt that it had a good message it seemed on one hand, and it was interesting enough to keep you watching. I really liked how everyone helped her throughout the film, and the community feel to it. But then afterwards when I reflected back on the movie I realized that she treated her kids so terribly, and that was never really resolved in a way that I felt was satisfactory. She was extremely neglectful, never having time for them, and they kind of just brushed that off, and made her into a saint. She's helping all these other people, but not her own kids? Talking about her son being ungrateful when he is acting out, but she's never there for them emotionally, of course he's messed up and wants to go live with Dad!! Is that supposed to be something that we are supposed to be looking up to? Then God didn't get ANY Glory after she prayed and hit BIG in the end where everything finally worked out, it was all about her, and how they were trying to make it seem like she was the one to be glorified. The focus in the end was on the romance she had with that guy, like it was more important than her kids. I wouldn't be surprised if those kids still need therapy, even though they made it seem like everything was okay with them. Not likely in real life...

This is a great story about a caring and unselfish person who never wants to ask for help. She's always the one taking care of everyone else. What goes around comes around. When she gets to the end of the road and she's about to lose everything... the miracle happens... and all kinds of people from everywhere help and help and help until she has to admit she needs them. When she does that the magic happens.

Stubborn woman meets good-hearted stubborn man. Sort of reminds me of "It's a Wonderful Life". We never know how much our one life can impact others, until it all becomes clear and we see. Very relatable, single mother in a struggle with bills and the world, but in spite of it all, never loses her desire to give back and help others, no matter how bad it gets. The world needs more uplifting stories of hope and believing in yourself and allowing others to be the mirror to help you see all the good you create. Yes, the world needs more stories just like this one to help us be grateful for who we already are and what gifts we already possess. We just need to see em differently and put em to work in a way that let's our light shine. Apple Mortgage Cake is that kind of perfect recipe that makes your whole soul feel good after chewing on it slowly to savor each bite. Enjoy. .
