    Dislikable movie characters don't always result in dislikable movies but that's certainly the case with Sam Levinson's Another Happy Day, a dysfunctional family meltdown movie about an impending wedding that only grows more aggravating as it unwinds.

    Even at a supposed celebration, the well-bred and well-off aren't really happy at all. So the title is ironic. Thanks for that profound insight.

    Hell is family in Another Happy Day, a portrait of one clan's reunion for a wedding that overflows with characters even more repugnant than the irony of its groan-worthy title.

    Hoping to distract us from the zero ideas found in his film, Levinson demands that his cast act loudly and unbearably, a task for which Demi Moore, as the second wife of Ellen's first husband, is perfectly suited.

At the outset let me tell you that the only sympathetic character in it is a borderline who cuts herself, and she is sympathetic only because we hear such awful things about her before meeting her we are pleasantly surprised to see her presented as the most stable in the family. As a Family Therapist I can tell you this movie would make a great teaching tool. Every kind of crazy making behavior is presented. There are predators galore in many guises, and quite a few victims. Ellen Barkin pulls off a bravura performance as a panicked, put upon mother whose brood consists of the above mentioned borderline and an addicted, self centered, car crash of a son. She gets no help from an empty space of a husband (played blithely by "The Walking Dead's" Jeffrey DeMunn), and plenty of interference from her mother (Ellen Burstyn) a cold disinterested matriarch concerned with her looming widowhood, and her ex husbands wife (Demi Moore) who insists on taking all the credit for raising Barkin's son to perfection., not to mention two sadists masquerading as sisters.
    I credit the movie for not shoving our nose too deep into psychoanalysis and finger pointing. After seeing this be sure to call your relatives and take a moment to love them.

It's moreIt's actually quite an interesting film with a swirling cast of dysfunctional characters who kind of compete for who is nuttier. It's more Bergmanesque than comedic and benefits from some great acting. Funny how one major reviewer suggested the only sane person is the family matriarch, played by Ellen Burstyn, but she's as wacky as the rest. It manages to be both enjoyable and rather painful.
