But after a life-changing event doesn't go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really wanted.

Critic Reviews for Nappily Ever After

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

Bildungsroman disguised as rom-com, the refreshing script much more concerned with its heroine's emotional arc and personal growth than her ultimate relationship status.

September 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, instead of coming across as a warm throwback, Nappily Ever After is a romantic comedy saddled with a reductive understanding of black womanhood without enough cast chemistry or beauty to distract us.

September 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Nappily Ever After is as much a polemic as it is anything else.

September 21, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Sticks too closely to romantic comedy cliches without being funny and fails to tackle the real obstacle to the main character's complete empowerment.

October 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Romantic dramedy with positive messages, language, sex.

October 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's light and charming, an evergreen love story produced by an intelligent and thoughtful producer, Tracey Bing.
