Writer-Director Richard Levine was one of the minds behind Nip/Tuck, so it's not surprising that his debut feature film is branded with the television medium's worst impulses.

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.

Auds will be wise to the contrived metaphors and realize there's not much going on below the surface except stock discourse.

Levine didn't need hysterics to find an appropriate ending, with the established atmosphere of chaos and regret interesting enough to carry matters all the way to the final frame.

A 42-minute TV soap has more story than this limp and familiar tale of domestic woe.

Complicated relationships fail to enliven grown-up drama.

A film of pleasantly half-sketched domestic noodling that comes across as inconsequential because it never really tries to bring substantive conflict to the fore.

An unrelentingly depressing drama about a family drenched in disappointment, despair, anger, and loneliness.

It's hard to empathize with the family in the indie drama Every Day when each member is so sitcom-ready.

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.

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.

Ace thesps struggle to lift this dour indie out of the doldrums, but writer-director Richard Levine allows them no breathing room.

There's something oddly remote about Every Day, which plays like a double-wide version of a perfectly acceptable Showtime pilot. [Blu-ray]

For all its contemporary social relevance and the fine performances from an excellent ensemble, the cliched characters and situations on display in Every Day ultimately detractt from its impact.

Every Day is too relentlessly depressing to recommend to the everyday audience. It seems to be on automatic pilot. Horrible, sad things keep happening, but it just goes on.

Schreiber approaches the role with a seriousness that lacks joy or any other colorful inflection, as if every second of his character's life, even the pleasurable ones, is weighing on him like an albatross.

Swims in mock profundity and has the feel of a movie made specifically for a forgiving festival audience.

Low-suds soap opera about the trendy "sandwich generation" travails of a hip, well-off New York family.
