After Ever Happy is the fourth movie in the “After” series, at this point everyone knows the drill when one of these movies comes out. What did surprise me about this one is that there was actually some level of attempt to try and make it work, the keyword is try because the movie does not succeed. Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Josephine Langford are actually not the worst here, unlike the other movies there’s actually some moments that they both manage to make work well enough. Unfortunately most of the movie is yet again almost the exact same thing as the last three movies, the writing is still a huge issue with a lot of terrible character choices and moments that lead to some admittedly laughable moments. Then there’s the ending which is by far the most hilarious moment to come out of these movies thus far, it definitely felt like there was a whole third act missing that the movie just didn’t bother to use. In fact that’s exactly what’s wrong with the movie there really isn’t a plot, it’s more arguments and sex scenes (although there isn’t as much as the other movies…shocker I know). Overall while After Ever Happy is better than the previous three movies that is still not saying much given that it’s still a terribly written mess.
After Ever Happy is available on all VOD platforms.
