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.
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.
Village Voice
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.
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.
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.
Auds will be wise to the contrived metaphors and realize there's not much going on below the surface except stock discourse.
A 42-minute TV soap has more story than this limp and familiar tale of domestic woe.
