      Audience Reviews for The Trouble With Bliss

      • Mar 30, 2014
        In "The Trouble with Bliss," the problem with Morris(Michael C. Hall) is not that he is still living with his father(Peter Fonda) but that he has never traveled anywhere, much less complete the simplest of tasks such as getting new keys made or groceries. To be totally unfair, Morris does have an 18-year old girlfriend, Stephanie(Brie Larson), which might possibly be explained by probable daddy issues, since Morris might have once known her father(Brad William Henke). "The Trouble with Bliss" is a fine starting place with a cool cast that also includes Sarah Shahi and Lucy Liu, of which Peter Fonda and Brie Larson fare the best to nobody's surprise. And it's nice that it references Forbidden Planet(the store, not the movie) and Homage to Catalonia. But that's it. I mean, overall the movie is as listless and lacking in ambition as its title character and that's no fun at all for anybody.

        I seem to be going through a phase of loving every movie I see. It surely can't last! This is a quirky little film, but I really enjoyed it. Story does go off a little at times, but it's mostly good with excellent cast and likeable or interesting characters.

        The dynamic between Bliss (Hall) and his old man (played by Peter Fonda), makes the film worthy of your time. Sadly, the film is all over the place. The main character finds himself in various situations, which is very interesting to watch. Unfortunately, it serves no real purpose to the narrative. It just highlights the absurdity of his life and makes it evident that some change is needed. Great performances! So-so film!
