Crass Imitation of "Heart Warming Family Drama"Reviewed byDanusha_GoskaVote: 1/10

"The Upside of Anger" is a crass imitation of "heart warming family drama." There are a couple of lines of dialogue that ring true, and a couple of scenes that work really well, but the true moments are awash in a movie so crass, exploitative, and phony it made me cringe.

Mike Binder, the filmmaker, earned a lot of brownie points for making a movie about a woman over forty, starring an actress over forty: Joan Allen.

But Binder is sure to surround Allen with a bevy of young beauties. Somehow this woman had four daughters who always look like they are posing for the cover of "Seventeen" magazine. Every one -- one a blonde, one a brunette, one a redhead -- is, in every scene, provocatively dressed, perfectly coiffed, and without a single zit. Tell me, in how many families with that many teenagers can you find not a single pimple or kid who's too skinny or too fat, or too shy or too loud, or who moves awkwardly? Feh.

Joan Allen bears about as much relation to a real woman over forty as Mickey bears to a real mouse. She drinks alcoholically, and yet never has puffy eyes or sallow skin. After relying on alcohol for months, she just, one day, quits, with no addictive kickback. I don't think so.

Oh, and the day her husband disappears, an incredibly attractive man -- Kevin Costner! -- throws himself at her. Oh, yeah, this happens to every newly single woman over forty with four kids. In Fantasyland! And, after her husband disappears, she never does a thing to attempt to contact him, but, somehow, his money continues to support her lifestyle, which is just a bit short of a Donald Trump style life. Where is all that cash coming from? Sure, this is a movie, and movies aren't supposed to be real. But this movie advertises itself as a film that takes on tough problems. There should be a word for this -- advertising your film as a film that addresses alcohol abuse, the loneliness of an abandoned, older mother, suddenly finding oneself single -- and then lies about every one of those important issues.

there are a couple of good scenes that just make everything around them look more like drek. An older, nebbishy character (Mike Binder, the filmmaker, also plays a small part in the movie), tells Joan Allen exactly why he chases younger women. His point is a valid one, and that scene deserves to be in a better movie.

Throughout the movie, Joan Allen plays a self absorbed ice shrew who deals with life and loved ones by pouring herself a stiff drink, sitting around in her negligee, and refusing to speak, while shooting death rays with her eyes. This is never believable, because we all know and love Joan Allen, and she's the star of the movie, so we keep waiting for her to show what a great gal she really is at heart.

Kevin Costner, though, reaches a point where he won't put up with this any more, and he emphatically tells her, "I'm tired of being your bitch." This is an electric scene, and it very much deserves to be in a much better, braver, grittier, funnier, tougher movie.

Finally, the last act offers a surprise ending that makes everything that came before it cheaper and utterly unbelievable.

Given the great cast here, and the good intentions, somewhere, in here, there is a good movie dying to get out. Sadly, it never quite does.

You almost want the cast to reassemble at some point in the future, and try again.

Drama with some laughs and a twistReviewed byArizWldcatVote: 7/10

I saw this when it premiered at the Sundance film festival (although the director & actors didn't bother to come to our screening), and I enjoyed it. Kevin Costner plays a baseball player, but the movie is not about baseball; it deals with the anger the lead character feels when her husband disappears, along with his secretary. Joan Allen plays the wife of the missing man, and is the mother to four daughters, played very well by Evan Rachel Wood, Keri Russel, Erika Christensen, and Alicia Witt. Joan Allen was marvelous. We laughed many times when she glared in anger at different characters in the movie (and we were glad she wasn't mad at US! LOL...) I have not been a big fan of Kevin Costner in recent years, but thought that he did a great job as the man who helps Joan Allen's character pick up the pieces. The writer/director also has a role in the film as an older man who dates Joan Allen's daughter. I thought the message of the film was delivered well, and it was an entertaining story. There is a twist at the end that I truly did not see coming. I don't think it spoiled the movie, it was just unexpected.

Great story, strong actorsReviewed byolliedesVote: 10/10

The Upside of Anger was a wonderfully written script. The perfect blend of humor and sadness, consistent in real life. Each character was developed uniquely, with many different layers. Each character was matched by strong up and coming and veteran actors. Joan Allen as usual is a gem and proves that mainstream Hollywood is missing one of the great female leads of our time. Kevin Costner sticks out and steals the show. He's quirky but real and perfectly lovable. All the girls, although they did not get enough screen time, were capable, exceptional, actors with a bright future in front of them all. Especially the youngest daughter played by Evan Rachel Wood. This is a rare comedy that must be seen. Although the average American may find it slow with it's absence of car chases and sword fights, one can only hope that this movie will find it's audience and grow enough to fall into the laps of the average and broaden their minds.
