After Ever Happy Review: The official synopsis of After Ever Happy reads, “As a shocking truth about a couple’s families emerges, the two lovers discover they are not so different from each other. Tessa is no longer the sweet, simple, good girl she was when she met Hardin — any more than he is the cruel, moody boy she fell so hard for.”
I am, like many others, a fan of the books and I almost didn’t wanna see this movie because the book contains a lot of things that make the book emotional and hard to read. After Ever Happy is suppose to make you feel like you ship Hardin and Tessa at the same time as you want then to break up and I never got that feeling.
I did have emotions while watching the movie, but they were more in line of anger towards the person who held the knife while slaughtering the book before writing a script.
Having watched the other 3 movies an unhealthy amount of times, and reading the books twice – published and wattpad versions.. to say i was let down by this movie would be an understatement. While the previous movies had many steamy scenes, this was heavy petting at best. Hardins drug and alcohol bender in London is nowhere to be seen. And then they go and pull a twilight and split the last book into two movies! And on that note, they chose to end it at the weirdest part. It’s also only 90mins long. Not 2 hours. Seems like when they decide split it they just cut some footage off… And don’t even get me started on yet another cast change. Paired with a horrific wig on Tessa.. I was really looking forward to this movie and was severely disappointed. The Don’t Worry Darling trailer that ayed before the movie got me more excited in it’s 3 minutes than this movie did in 90 minutes.

Someone please needs to speak to Hero Fiennes about acting classes. He comes from a family of actors. The movie was not bad nor good. It was like any other of the past movies. I believe if we got the Hardin we deserved it would’ve been better. Althought, I’m not only blaming him but Anna Todd anyone else involved in these past films. They needed better direction, script and actors. Don’t get me wrong I think Hero is gorgeous and has an amazing ass but his acting is pure cringe.
And before you go off on me I am a fan still and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who thinks the same. Let’s see what the other film brings.

The movie seems very long without much action compared to the last three movies it’s the worst one and I don’t think I would want to watch the next one which will obviously happen, I was a fan but now I’m disappointed and shocked as to how it went so bad and the ending is honestly a joke. Nothing special wouldn’t recommend especially if you have to pay for it, a waste of money.
This movie was even better than I imagined. I knew it would be good because they did a great job with AWF. Hero playing Hardin trying to deal with his past and overcome it was done in such an authentic way. Their chemistry is once in a lifetime and once again, blew me away. Music is beautiful also.

This movie was phenomenal. The acting from every cast member was first class, especially the two leads. It was so authentic to the book and heartbreaking. My favourite of the series, Castille Landon did a fantastic job.
After reading these movies, you may have guessed that After Ever Happy is triggering mixed feelings for the viewers. Some of them are saying it is awful while others are rating it with 10/10 stars saying they loved it. So in this review, I’ll leave you to take your call yourself.
Here is the trailer you may want to watch again for the better decision.
