  1. A very curious and very entertaining mix, the Labradoodle of inspirational romantic-comedy-melodramas.

    As preposterously awkward, naïve and contrived as this movie is, it's still a curious sort of pleasure to witness-especially the gospel singing scenes.
  3. In an awkward split-personality way, it works some of the time.
  4. So oblivious to genre that it occupies its own special stylistic niche, if you can imagine such a thing as a romantic revenge farce.
  5. 40
    The film is never dull.
  6. 30
    Veers back and forth between indigestibly syrupy romance and vulgar "ethnic" comedy, with healthy doses of Christian proselytizing thrown in for good measure.
  7. 20
    The whole three-ring circus winds up in a church for a redemptive finale, but by then, Diary has committed too many sins for even the most generous soul to offer salvation.
