  • Evans directs energetically, and the personable actors help to keep us involved, but the picture skims stubbornly along the surface. show more

  • A movie about bisexuals sounds fresh and fun on paper, but a sensitive acoustic song under the opening credits shows exactly where The Happy Sad is going. Deadly earnestness and sex don’t mix well at the movies. show more

  • Ken Urban, adapting his own play, fumbles at injections of urban, and decidedly not urbane, levity, in addition to telegraphing entire subplots. show more
