Most people think I am a very upbeat person, but this film has damaged me.
Professor Emeritus P. Bagnolo
You won't hate the film, but any trouble that you'd go through to see it would instill some sort of expectation in your mind that this movie is going to be good.
Mr. Bey
She is the dynamic single co-worker that refuses to settle down and parties hard.

Writer/director Richard Levine's "Every Day" is an unassuming little picture (albeit one with a pretty impressive cast) that deserves to be appreciated by a wider audience. A story of obligation and compromise, this is a candidly realistic look at a family in turmoil. At times deftly direct, at others absurdly comical--this is a movie that might have dematerialized into a conventionally quirky sitcom. But it is, ultimately, grounded by true drama and strong performances. As a result, this is one of the more satisfying sleepers that has completely exceeded my expectations. Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt, Brian Dennehy, Ezra Miller, and Skyler Fortgang play the family in question with the always undervalued Carla Gugino and scene stealing Eddie Izzard as workplace colleagues of Schreiber. Every time the film appears to be about to veer into contrivance, the smart screenplay reels things back. It is a perfect balance that Schreiber is largely responsible for--as he is the actor primarily straddling plot lines with distinctly different tones.

Schreiber and Hunt have invited her ailing and estranged father (Dennehy) to live with him during his declining health. Hunt, who sometimes falls a bit flat for me, is absolutely spot-on here. Bitter, angry, resentful--this is a letter perfect performance (and the film's best) from start to finish. You may not always like her, but her distant and antagonistic relationship with her father rings quite true as does her decision to try to make him comfortable despite her misgivings. Dennehy tries to maintain dignity as his body betrays him, but does little to ingratiate himself with the clan. Miller, their eldest son, is exploring his burgeoning homosexuality and this is a strain for Schreiber who hasn't quite come to terms with things.

A heart-warming story about the everyday struggles of marriage and family, this Indie film focuses on Ned (Live Schreiber), a TV writer in the midst of a mid-life crisis. Ned's problems multiply exponentially when his wife Jeannie (Helen Hunt) moves her ill and bitter father (Brian Dennehy) into their home, his son admits he is gay, and his boss pairs him with a seductive female co-worker (Carla Gugino). In a flurry of family problems Ned must counsel his sons through their formative years, curb his frustration towards the imposition of his wife's father, and resist the exciting temptations of his female co-worker.

Overall, an evocative film that deftly captures the day in and day out grind of being a spouse and parent. It displays the importance of staying loyal to those who love you and care about you despite any obstacles that may interfere--stress, tedium, or temptation. A film that entertains, but leaves the viewer with something to think about. Definitely worth a watch!

Look at the cover photo, the two women slightly in the background smiling and happy, and Liev looks troubled. Knowing nothing about this movie, what would you think about it? Threesome? Is he trying to choose between the two and can not make his mind up?

This movie is not a comedy, it is not funny, and it is not a fantasy. Liev Schreiner is married to Helen Hunt, and as a husband(Ned) he has waaay too many problems and issues to deal with, sometimes kind of like in real life. When he has to work with his co-worker Carla Gugino to complete his script for a TV show, she tries to put some sense into his life, but even that fails.

What good is living, if there isn't any fun in it? Way at the end of the movie the family finally starts to have some fun by making music, but even that is interrupted by the grandfather dying in the middle of it. I don't know, maybe that was supposed to be funny?

From where I am standing, most people want to have at least some fun in their lives, and if troubles are piling up and the amount of fun is approaching zero, at some point, it would make perfect sense to make a fresh start and rebalance things in life.

This is a good movie with good acting and a good story line. It may be depressing for some people. Don't expect to be entertained by it.

EVERY DAY resonates with audiences because it is a story that tackles some heavy themes and shows that there is light at the end of every seemingly impossible tunnel. Writer/director Richard Levine has much experience with the topics raised in this film from his broad work as a television writer. The dialogue is smart, sassy, touching and insightful, and that, coupled with a very fine cast, makes this a movie to relish.

This day really isn't all that different than every other day, except today Ned's (Live Schreiber) gay son Jonah (Ezra Miller) wants to go to a college party, his wife Jeannie (Helen Hunt) is bringing home her elderly father Ernie (Brian Dennehy) whom she has never been able to tolerate to live with them, and his outrageous boss Garrett (Eddie Izzard) seems to have become even more crazy and demanding than would even seem possible. As his wife tries to take care of her father and reconnect with him, Ned tries to reconnect with Jonah, and then without trying, he seems to have formed a connection with his co-worker Robin (Carla Gugino). Add to this Ned's younger son Ethan (Skyler Fortgang) is attempting to prepare for a violin performance and needs the support of his family, especially his gay brother. If he can get through days like these, he should be able to get through anything else life throws at him. The little miracles that happen in the hands of Levine's script are satisfying resolutions (for the moment, at least) for all the bumps in the road that occur every day.

The entire cast is strong, managing to be at times witty and caustic and at other times revealing that at the level of human emotions they are all very vulnerable, need, but survivors. This is a too often forgotten little film that is a pure pleasure to experience. Grady Harp, August 13
