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.

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.

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

What distinguishes Levine's film from, say, last year's similarly themed (and irredeemable) Happy Tears is his cast -- and not just reliable vets like Schreiber.

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.

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

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.
