After Ever Happy is the fourth film in the After film series. The film is directed by Castille Landon, who also directed the third installment of the series.
After the discovery from the previous film, Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) is confronted with a shocking truth. He ends up furious in a depression, which Tessa (Josephine Langford) only gets rid of him more. Because of this, she decides to leave him.
After a shocking event for Tessa, Hardin tries to come back to her to help her, only she is no longer interested in him. Both have to put their problems aside if they want their relationship to continue to work, to build a future together, or else live alone next to each other.
This fourth film is, just like the previous films in the series, put together very messy. So messy that it just remains difficult to follow and the eventual events seem more unrealistic and almost no longer believable.
The characters also keep making unrealistic or illogical decisions. Tessa and Hardin keep looking for each other, only to say goodbye after a short while. They keep making these decisions, because they keep changing their minds in a short period of time. In this way, the film comes across more as a weak yes-nothing game. Most problems could simply be solved with a good and serious conversation, but unfortunately they continue to choose unrealistic ways with the films, which often only make the problems unnecessarily bigger.
The film is further filled with clichés from a standard romantic film, only all the relationships in this film seem too rushed without any credible chemistry. Furthermore, the film is also filled with flashbacks from the previous films.
The acting doesn't come out very well because of the bad scripts. Josephine Langford comes across as an ignorant and somewhat spoiled teenager. Hero Fiennes Tiffin continues to come across as a crank, who in this film must try to be something kind to help his girlfriend during her own crisis. Yet they often come out too exaggerated as if they were playing in a more dramatic soap opera.
They end the film so uninteresting and unbelievable for you as a viewer. If the scripts and maybe even the books had been written better, the whole story would have been best told in two books or movies. The series actually remains fun only for fans of the books or film series, but after a while in which they get older, they will hopefully also see the weak sides of the entire story.
