There are sharp moments throughout.
It's a recognizable situation that should be easy to sympathize with. Yet the movie makes it hard for most of us to recognize ourselves in this couple or sympathize with their struggles.
Real life isn't choreographed for maximum impact, it's messy and unpredictable. At its best, so is "Every Day."
A 42-minute TV soap has more story than this limp and familiar tale of domestic woe.
Very well written and acted, Every Day feels like a glorified television drama softened with comic and surreal trimmings, with a mildly upbeat ending appended.
What makes this intriguing, yet woefully uneven film so relatable is that there is nothing about Ned's experience that seems extreme.
...an excellent cast can't save a plot drowning in obviousness.
The problem with Every Day is that it doesn't take a third major element into account in the film/audience relationship equation: complete apathy.
I just don't buy any recovery in this film.
There's something oddly remote about Every Day, which plays like a double-wide version of a perfectly acceptable Showtime pilot. [Blu-ray]
...wears out its welcome long before the end credits roll...
Seems like a first draft that piles up the characters and their issues without assembling them into a dramatic whole. Someone was in a rush to get the cameras rolling.
This film took me by surprise. From the trailer, I wasn't expecting much. However, I was very delighted from beginning to end with this film. Everyone is well cast and they all shine. It reminded me a little bit of the movie, City Island. On a negative it is a little predictable, but that didn't bother me here. I definitely recommend this film.
"I really liked this movie. It deals with some hard issues with difficulties of marriage, a sons sexuality, and a harsh father whose deteriorating. I really like Ezra Miller. I think he's a great young actor. Brian Dennehy was great in this. Oh how I have missed Helen Hunt. I think she's fantastic. She's really good in this. Liev Schreiber was really good here too. Ok, obviously what I'm getting to is that the performances were great. The story is really good. I, like others, have a hard time understanding why this film got such low ratings. I thought it was a great indie flick. Has it been done before? Yes. But the difference between this flick and ones before it, is the actors. They make the movie. They make the story relatable and realistic. This is someones life in one way or another. We all struggle with one or more of these issues. See it if you get a chance."
I'm not sure why this movie has such a low rating. This movie had a really good cast, was really well done, and I found the storyline interesting. This movie is, in a word, real. Real life issues. Real life dialog. I was never once bored, and I found myself enthralled in their lives. Good movie...
The only good thing about this film is seeing Carla Gugino, that's about it, boring story and no acting at all.
Ned (Liev Schreiber) is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. His work as a writer on an outrageous, semi-pornographic TV show is less than satisfying. His fifteen year old son has just told him he is g... read more read more...ay and his eleven year old is afraid of, well pretty much everything. When his wife, Jeannie (Helen Hunt), moves her sick and embittered father (Brian Dennehy) from Detroit into their home in NY, it puts added stress on an already strained marriage. And when a sexy female co-worker (Carla Gugino) puts the moves on Ned, the temptation sends him spiraling. Every Day is about one family's struggle to survive the unexpected curve-balls that are simply part of real life; aging and death; commitment and freedom; love and acceptance. It's an uncompromising look at an ordinary family making an extraordinary journey towards themselves and towards each other.
