Based on the short story by Jim Carroll, Curtis's Charm is a smart, laugh-out-loud comedy that percolates with wit and energy.

A chance reunion of two buddies, Jim (Callum Keith Rennie) and Curtis (Maurice Dean Wint), a few years after their stint in rehab, sets the stage for a hilarious and spirited look at life on the street. The two outlaws band together in order to save the delusional Curtis from his evil mother-in-law and the "voodoo juju" curse she has placed him under. Jim concocts a good luck "charm" and persuades Curtis that it will protect him from evil. The placebo works all too well and the result is startling, not only for Curtis but for all those around him.
