This movie, written, produced and directed by Sherwood Productions (a ministry at Sherwood Baptist Church in Georgia) was their first attempt at movie making.  With a budget of just $20,000, they have developed a film that, although a bit rough at the edges at times (the entire cast are volunteers from the church), will bless everyone who takes the time to watch it. 

So what's the plot? 
Jay Austin wants to sell you a used car, but watch out! Many victims have fallen prey to his smiling face and hasty promises. Austin does everything his way until his dishonesty and manipulation are repeatedly exposed. Like many men, he becomes disgusted by the masks he wears and lies he tells. While having a classic convertible repaired, Austin begins a humorous and inspiring journey to win back the hearts of his wife, his son, and his community. In every man's life, there can be a turning point. When Jay Austin makes his turn, he never looks back.

As stated in the beginning of this review, the film is a real blessing to watch and although it is family friendly, the young children (5 and under) lost interest in it after about 30 minutes. 

Wagar Family Recommendation = YES

I just watched this, borrowed from a friend. Really liked it. Some of the acting wasn't professional. But it was sincere, which I found so much better than the usual Hollywood films. And the script was well written. And the black ladies were hilarious!!
