The New York Times
Very well written and acted, Every Day feels like a glorified television drama softened with comic and surreal trimmings.
Disappointingly ordinary film.
New York Daily News
There are too many overwritten moments designed solely to make the movie more interesting -- when, in fact, they undercut the low-key relatability that serves as its strongest asset.
It's hard to empathize with the family in the indie drama Every Day when each member is so sitcom-ready.
Levine, previously a writer for "Nip/Tuck," sets the bar low, content to work within the shopworn crises, lazy epiphanies, and eye-rolling moments of redemption that have become standard formula in Amerindie family dramedies of the past 20 years.
Los Angeles Times
What makes this intriguing, yet woefully uneven film so relatable is that there is nothing about Ned's experience that seems extreme.
Too relentlessly depressing to recommend to the everyday audience. It seems to be on automatic pilot. Horrible, sad things keep happening, but it just goes on.
The A.V. Club
At the movie's center, Schreiber approaches the role with a seriousness that lacks joy or any other colorful inflection.
Levine's dramedy not only gives Ned's middle-class crises a static, by-the-numbers treatment, it also feels compelled to adopt a ridiculously righteous moral tone.
New York Post
A 42-minute TV soap has more story than this limp and familiar tale of domestic woe.
