A late twist renders all this sturm und drang a tad redundant, but until then anger keeps it alive.

Upside is better-than-average as a mid-budget suburban film dramedy but positively gangbusters if you imagine it as a two-hour television pilot.

No actress has neck muscles like Joan Allen - able to gracefully reach upward or, here, stiffly twist into a double helix of tension and anxiety. It's not simply witty repartee and good chemistry. It's about comfortable situations that can't really last.

Binder's writing is matched by the top-notch talents on display here.

The Upside of Anger is a sharply written, insightful and enjoyable film with many layers.
July 2, 2007
Always more than a mere by-numbers domestic drama, The Upside of Anger is desperately, darkly funny, with dialogue to, er, die for, and a perfect cast.

Engaging, brilliantly directed, frequently funny and ultimately moving drama with a terrific script and superb performances from Allen and Costner.

May 4, 2007
While beautifully cast and acted, this focuses on its comic strengths to the detriment of the drama, creating an unbalanced tone and leading to self-conscious attempts at serious observation. A pleasant watch, but nowhere near as profound as it thinks it

Compelling and honest with flashes of dark humour which makes this a meaty comedy drama.

Allen's imperious turn and Costner's affable charm go a long way to ensuring you'll look back on Anger with affection.

Costner shines as the persecuted suitor who tries his best not to mind when being nagged and belittled by his regally shrewish object of desire, up to a point.
