This Scottish romcom is a great advert for Glasgow, but it delivers an awful warning to filmmakers about shooting a script that's seriously unready.
A trifling comedy about writer's block that aims for a blend of Richard Curtis-style cheeriness and arch literary satire, and winds up mostly drawing a blank.
The cast gives it what they can, but they are underserved by choppy direction and a simplistic script that never breaks the surface.
The film's ending was indeed a happy moment, but not in the intended manner.
Contrived, manic and unfunny the film also flounders because of the lack of chemistry between an awkward Gillan and a wooden Weber.
That convention-flouting title misleads: this winsome affair lags lamentably close to the modern romcom average.
This may look like a rom-com, with its obvious plotting and over-cute characters, but it's eerily lacking any actual romance or comedy.
Ultimately worth seeing thanks to a charming lead performance from Karen Gillan, strong comic support from Iain De Caestecker and a handful of decent gags.
It may not have the bite of a Bridesmaids, but in Gillan's sparky performance there's enough to keep you engaged for the duration.
McKay's film often feels like Richard Curtis-lite for the New Girl generation - minus the jokes and memorable characters.
Impeded by a weak script and poorly-drawn characters, Not Another Happy Ended is an all too often muddled and unsatisfying affair.
Crisply lovely cinematography by George Geddes and an upbeat soundtrack add to the film's airy, merry vibe.
A hodge-podge of random-seeming creative flourishes conspire with the film's general lack of believability to make the characters seem not so much off the wall, as completely demented.
