One of Karen Gillan's best performances.
26 March 2017 | by dan-willi84See all my reviews

I think it is a real shame Not Another Happy Ending did not get released in New Zealand and that there are people out there who disliked the film. It is a good film. Okay, it's not a classic, not a great film, but it is still a good film. Karen Gillan is such a brilliant actress. So far, there hasn't been anything that I've seen her which she has not given a good performance. Rebus, Doctor Who, We'll Take Manhattan, Oculus, Guardians of the Galaxy, Bound For Greatness, Selfie and now Not Another Happy Ending. She has given nothing but good performances. Not Another Happy Ending is one of her best performances and she gave her best. I really don't blame Karen Gillan for being nervous for taking her clothes off on screen, but for what it's worth, she has a great body. Stanley Weber was a good choice to play the male lead Tom whom is an anti-hero. I thought the character was not likable and he was such a jerk. Good film. If you are fans of Karen Gillan and if you enjoyed Hotel Chevalier, Selfie, There's Something About Mary. I recommend this film.
