This film was okay, but the message seemed to be that if you become a Christian that all your problems will turn around and your life will be rosy again, which is a spurious message to non-Christians. The acting of the two main characters was quite good in most scenes, though the scene where the guy became a Christian was poor in every way;; lacking the aura of sincerity and lacking the appropriate explanation of the commitment he was about to make. That scene also left out critical components of a genuine surrender. It seemed like they were just saying words to get it over-with and it appeared to me like it was just dropped-in toward the last part of the story without a thought of where it 'fit' into the story. The acting would have been much better is the writing and directing had been more professional, in my opinion. John Savage was the only well-known actor and his part was very small. The story-line about his pending home going into foreclosure was poorly developed. He kept selling things and getting money from multiple sources, but we weren't told what he did with the money he got (garage sale, selling jewelry at pawn shops, etc) and there was no mention of putting any part of all that money put toward the late mortgage payments till the very end., which is unrealistic because it made it look like his mortgage payments must have been super-high though they obviously had never been a high-earning family. Given the inconsistencies in the story-development and critical scenes being poorly contrived, inappropriately acted and directed and the misleading conclusion of the story., I cannot recommend this film. It did have some good parts and was not a total waste of time, though.
