  1. With husband and wife starring, you can't help but wonder which details here are autobiographical. No matter: This is obviously a deeply personal work for Attal, whose comic timing and passion can only serve him well both on screen and off.
  2. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    Stylish and only superficially superficial, Happily Ever After plunks us down with three male friends as they dance on the edge of their 40s.
  3. A marital comedy as perceptive as it is delectable.
  4. Where My Wife was offbeat and original, Happily Ever After gets bogged down in midlife-crisis cliches.
  5. 50
    There's nothing much wrong with the film; my complaint is that there's nothing much right about it.

    Attal's characters are one-note position statements, which forces the unsubtle soundtrack - mostly American pop songs that range from the Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning" to Radiohead's "Creep" - to bear the brunt of clarifying their thoughts and feelings. Without it, you'd be entirely in the dark.
  7. Reviewed by: David Ng
    This would-be comedy about a thirtysomething family man (Attal) and his foray into infidelity is probably the worst in the putrid bushel of recent Gallic imports.
