Movie Summary

Director:
Mike Binder
Released:
2005
Rating:
R

The Upside of Anger follows Terry Wolfmeyer (Joan Allen), who has been dumped by her husband -- who, in a clichéd ending, ran off with his secretary -- and is left to raise her four daughters alone. But there could be a silver lining to it all when Terry hooks up with a retired baseball player (Kevin Costner). Erika Christensen, Alicia Witt, Keri Russell and Evan Rachel Wood co-star in this comic drama about tangled family ties from writer-director Mike Binder.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    A squarely suburban movie with a distinctly bourgeois-shaped window on the world, but it's genuine and exceptionally well observed.

  • 80

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Increasingly exhibits a desire to amuse and distract rather than go deep, which ultimately generates disappointment in light of its announced intentions.

  • 60

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    A seriously flawed movie wrapped around two nearly perfect performances.
