Critic Reviews for Not Another Happy Ending

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

This Scottish romcom is a great advert for Glasgow, but it delivers an awful warning to filmmakers about shooting a script that's seriously unready.

Time Out
Top Critic

A trifling comedy about writer's block that aims for a blend of Richard Curtis-style cheeriness and arch literary satire, and winds up mostly drawing a blank.

Top Critic

Brit romcom about writer's block has brief nudity, cliches.

Common Sense Media

The cast gives it what they can, but they are underserved by choppy direction and a simplistic script that never breaks the surface.

Shadows on the Wall

The film's ending was indeed a happy moment, but not in the intended manner.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

Contrived, manic and unfunny the film also flounders because of the lack of chemistry between an awkward Gillan and a wooden Weber.

Audience Reviews for Not Another Happy Ending


Good directing and a charming cast lead by a strong lead performance by Karen Gillan and a great supporting roles by Iain de Caestecker and Amy Manson, Not Another Happy Ending is a good RomCom that's great for a date night. One downfall is the script. The script is below average to well below average in some spots (Almost every scene with her father makes you want to cringe), but the cast makes the most out of it and turns it into a respectable movie.

This was a perfect rom-com with a fantastic cast and a fantastic script. The ending was perfect and adorable.

Very predictable plot. At times uncomfortably bad acting. At other times a somewhat hip fun adventure.
