August 10, 2013
Supposedly, Another Happy Day is meant to be a dark comedy. Unfortunately, demanding it is comedic on the box does not make the actual film so.

Levinson piles on the anguish with such abandon he never convinces you that these people would ever speak to each other, much less live under the same roof.

"Another Happy Day" becomes increasingly difficult to watch, despite its intelligence and strong cast. You wish this family well, but you're grateful to see the last of them.

Sam Levinson has proven that he can get a movie made. Good for him. But he still has to prove that he has a story to tell.

If you liked Rachel Getting Married or Margot at the Wedding, you probably have good taste, so you should avoid this one.

Dislikable movie characters don't always result in dislikable movies but that's certainly the case with Sam Levinson's Another Happy Day.

A tiresome and irritating melodrama about an extended family gathering for a wedding and showing their neurotic sides without any restraint.

Levinson's uneven family drama bears all the hallmarks of a self-conscious indie debut. But he has one distinct advantage many young filmmakers lack: a powerhouse cast.

Ellen Barkin - playing the estranged mother of the groom - does a big heap of acting as one of the more histrionic members of the clan.

Even if you can relate because you're unlucky enough to have a family like this, why would you want to watch a movie about it?
November 15, 2011
Hoping to distract us from the zero ideas found in his film, Levinson demands that his cast act loudly and unbearably...

[Mistakes] over-the-top dysfunctional family cruelty for comedy and drama.

A movie about a wedding that makes you wish you'd checked the "Regrets only" section of this particular invitation.

Rarely has a tale been more thoroughly ugly in every respect, and to no meaningful end.
