Audience Reviews for Happy Together

A sappy romance movie, but I sort of enjoyed it anyway. Overall, it's okay.

Super Reviewer

Although this movie is predictable, unrealistic, and sappy, I sort of enjoyed it. I loved Slater, she gives a good performance, her character reminds me of Liza Minnelli in Cabaret. Of course, Dempsey's character could have been played by many other better actors, but he gives his best in the role. Overall, a so-so movie, but if you're a girl in college, like me, you'll enjoy it anyway.
