  • Ben Wheatley strips things way back for his nerve-raddled family reunion comedy, and the result is one of his best, most fluid films.

  • Every minute of this film has something of interest, every frame is well composed. And yet I admit I found there was something a bit contrived and unreal about it, like an epic improv session.

  • Plenty of classy ingredients here, but Wheatley's tentative first foray into the realm of adult drama is not the heart-bruising emotional assault course it could have been.

  • With Happy New Year, Colin Burstead, Ben Wheatley has crafted a very funny, very real family drama that shows a simple universal truth: all families are weird.

  • While it may be a little too acidic for some palettes, those who dread the annual family get-together round the telly at Christmas will find plenty to cringe over.

  • Commanding a handheld camera, Wheatley orchestrated this comedy with delirium-free, improvised-like routines that bring it closer to the experimental genre.
