Happily is filled with sly references to other films and some bitingly funny dialogue, but then we get to that aforementioned fork in the road...the film suffers greatly for taking the latter path.

Happily is a darkly humorous thriller filled with some amazingly uncomfortable tension
March 19, 2021
The second half of Happily isn't nearly as interesting as the first, and once we realize what's actually happening in this house, it's such a contrivance that it takes us out of the story wondering whether it's even possible at all.

Like a cross between "The Box" and "The Twilight Zone," BenDavid Grabinski's "Happily" takes the viewer on a twisted ride.
March 19, 2021
By the time you reach the end of "Happily," all that is left is a series of abandoned ideas, potential character arcs, and a return to relative normalcy.

It simply feels as if there's a lot more here, beneath the surface and kept there in order to maintain the movie's air of mystery...
March 19, 2021
Needless to say, a movie for romantics, this is not.
March 18, 2021
The story goes enough strange places that are sometimes fascinatingly psychological.

"Happily" is what happens when a cute conceit goes nowhere intriguing.
March 18, 2021
A clever comedy that asks, "What's so weird about loving your spouse?"
March 18, 2021
Happily lives in the porous space between genres, where horror, thriller and several stripes of comedy-notably dark and romantic-commingle with one another.
March 18, 2021
Happily is a dark comedy with an all-star cast of characters, building tension in a wound up house of deception, boiling over into a wild and weird getaway.
March 18, 2021
a worthwhile experience for fans of the actors or curious dark comedy buffs
March 18, 2021
The movie wants to do too many things, and grows diffuse. This is a not uncommon glitch with first features; one hopes and expects Grabinski will deliver something more focused next time.
March 18, 2021
That few of its narrative mysteries are resolved is obviously meant to be purposefully ambiguous, but the results are finally more frustrating than intriguing.
March 17, 2021
Happily is the kind of movie that is just daring you to guess where everything is going - only you will never ever get it right.
March 17, 2021
A rom-com that slowly reveals itself as a work of biting absurdism, with a smidge of tech paranoia thrown in for good measure.
March 17, 2021
Clever and original and rather intriguing how Grabinski puts all the various pieces together.
March 17, 2021
Grabinski takes full advantage of his seasoned and talented comedic cast, but it is his dry wit and timing which throws us that curveball when we least expect it that makes it so much fun.
March 17, 2021
An inviting puzzle of dark events and interpersonal hostilities, with the material always better off with real feelings instead of self-conscious strangeness.
