    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    There are too many overwritten moments designed solely to make the movie more interesting -- when, in fact, they undercut the low-key relatability that serves as its strongest asset. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    Too relentlessly depressing to recommend to the everyday audience. It seems to be on automatic pilot. Horrible, sad things keep happening, but it just goes on. show more

    Time Out New York

    Levine's dramedy not only gives Ned's middle-class crises a static, by-the-numbers treatment, it also feels compelled to adopt a ridiculously righteous moral tone. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    Very well written and acted, Every Day feels like a glorified television drama softened with comic and surreal trimmings. show more

    Melissa Anderson Village Voice

    Levine, previously a writer for "Nip/Tuck," sets the bar low, content to work within the shopworn crises, lazy epiphanies, and eye-rolling moments of redemption that have become standard formula in Amerindie family dramedies of the past 20 years. show more

    Betsy Sharkey Los Angeles Times

    What makes this intriguing, yet woefully uneven film so relatable is that there is nothing about Ned's experience that seems extreme. show more
