All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (4)

  • 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.

    Aug 16, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Aug 16, 2013 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Romantic confusion and youthful insecurity drive "The Happy Sad," a New York relationship roundelay as restless as the city itself.
