Critic Reviews for The Happy Sad

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

Sexy and soapy, this modern-day romance about sexually adventurous couples mixing things up is a gem.

Evans directs energetically, and the personable actors help to keep us involved, but the picture skims stubbornly along the surface.

Aug 19, 2013 | Full Review…

An engaging look at a pair of New York couples whose love lives intersect, crisscross, circle and backtrack in hip and provocative ways.

Strong acting and occasional dives into deeper territory redeem this somewhat contrived chamber piece.

Deadly earnestness and sex don't mix well at the movies.

Romantic confusion and youthful insecurity drive "The Happy Sad," a New York relationship roundelay as restless as the city itself.
