Unhappily Ever After

Show Summary

Jack Malloy is the stressed-out and hallucinating father who works at a used car lot where his boss is his father in-law. Jennifer "Jennie" Malloy is the mother. She has little time for any of her kids or for her husband. Maureen Slattery is Jennie's mother (Jack's mother in-law). Ryan Malloy is the oldest son who is not too bright. Ryan is disliked by both parents; primarily, because he was conceived on their first date becoming the reason why they are all together in this mess and secondly, because he's stupid. Tiffany Malloy is the beautiful, smart daughter. She is envied by her mother and worshipped by her father who relishes her intelligence and her virginity. Ross Malloy is the youngest, forgotten child. He is of average intelligence but progressively develops a warped personality from the lack of any parental love. Mr. Floppy is a stuffed rabbit that Ross gave to Jack. After the stresses of separating from Jennie and having to leave his house, Jack begins to imagine Mr. Floppy is talking to him. Despite being a creation of Jack's own mind, Mr. Floppy shows Jack no more respect than anybody else does; but to Jack, Mr. Floppy becomes his best friend and faithful companion.moreless

    • A cheap rehash of Married with Children that was actually pretty good

      Unhappily Ever After is a Married with Children clone and doesn't even try to hide it. Anyone who says it's not a clone is delusional. However, I highly enjoyed Unhappily Ever After. Sure, it may have been hopelessly derivative, but they did a great job with the casting and the show was actually really good. It's a shame that the show didn't last longer, but oh well. I recommend this show to anyone who enjoyed shows like Married With Children and Titus.moreless
    • Jack Malloy is a stressed-out father who works at a used car lot where his boss is his father in-law. He is unapreciatd at home and hallucinates, especially when drinking, that his son's stuffed rabbit, Mr. Floppy, comes to life to talk to him.moreless

      Definetly many simularities to Married With Children. The attractive woman married to the below average working man, the overly attractive daughter, and the son that\'s mostly ignored by both parents, the youngest son with warped personality, and the wise cracking animal.

      The differences, the daughter is smart in this one and the parents both like her, the youngest son in this show is ignored mostly rather then being smothered with attention, and the animal is a talking stuffed animal that actually comunicates directly with a human character rather than a dog who\'s inner thoughts are occasionally shared with the audience.

      It has it\'s moments that are very funny, mostly when Mr. Floppy is insulting Jack or playing dead when Jack tries to show him to other people. Something to watch if you need a laugh and happen to find it on tv, not something I\'d set aside time to watch week after week, or spend much money on to see again.moreless
    • Looking back at this show is great. Its like a whos who of current popular tv.

      Looking back at this show is great. Its like a whos who of current popular tv. I am proud to say that I was a fan of this show when it was on the air. I never saw it as a married with children rip off and think the people who say that have never watched the show3.
    • This Series is nothing more than a bad copy of "Married With Children". That's all, folks!

      This Series is nothing more than a bad copy of "Married With Children" - copiyng the whole style of a poor, disfunctional family, including the family members:

      al bundy => jack maloy, (a father, is a joke for the kids)

      Peggy => jenny maloy (his wife)

      Kelly Bundy => Tiffany Maloy (older sexy sister)

      Bud Bundy => Ryan Maloy (younger brother, in vain trying to get chicks)

      Seven => Ross Maloy (the youngest brother)

      additional to this The Bundies had a pet - a dog.

      the writers of UEA replased it by a talking puppet - bad try to become original.

      i watched 10-20 episodes because of Nikki Cox and her yummi-yummi body... till i can't watch this fake-show anymore.

      THis show is crap, Al Bundy for ever.moreless
