"Happy Tears" is an unwatchable movie, and the worst film I have seen in a long time. Demi Moore and Parker Posey play dysfunctional sisters taking care of their dysfunctional father, played by Rip Torn.

In fact, everyone in "Happy Tears" is dysfunctional, including Ellen Barkin. Writer/director Michael Lichtenstein has created an intensely inept piece of storytelling, a movie barely in focus and aimlessly wandering the cinematic planet.

If you dare buy a ticket to this dysfunctional mess, be prepared to walk out, it's that bad.
