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.
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.
You almost need a score card to keep track of all the coupling, uncoupling, and re-coupling, but the out-of-the-closet antics are amusing enough to intrigue.
An intriguing urban subject is completely done in by a dreary, banal script, making you wonder why we should care about these wannabe hipsters.
Despite a fairly obvious metaphor that matters of sexuality are far from "black and white," the film is refreshing in its lack of racial politics. But, despite very good performances, the movie falls short.
It may have the trappings of your everyday NYC indie, but it stands apart for exploring love and lust in a world where sexuality and race aren't the sources of the drama.
Ken Urban, adapting his own play, fumbles at injections of urban, and decidedly not urbane, levity, in addition to telegraphing entire subplots.
Reducing complex relationship issues to a typical indie-flick blatherathon-complete with performances of varying quality and stilted dialogue-isn't helping anyone.
The Miserably Sad would have been a better title for this exercise in bitterness.
