    Take the worst things about independent movies - the wallowing in an unpleasantness, the narrative unsteadiness, the next-to-no story. Then combine those with a hefty dose of light comedy. The result: the big, fat tonal mess that is Happy Tears, a charmless film about two sisters who come together to care for their demented father. show more

    A cringe-inducing, self-consciously kooky indie comedy that's best enjoyed for its taste of Rip Torn. show more
