Movie Review: Relative Happiness

"Relative Happiness" a funny feel-good romantic comedy that deals with the different levels of happiness for different individuals. The opening salvo of the film is a picturesque view of the country side that led to a fun scene on wedding fittings. The film has a "Modern Family" comedy feel that would surely keep you laughing. "Relative Happiness" has a perfect balance of humor and a dash of drama that would make you think "Yeah, I also feel like that sometimes."

Melissa Berglandin has a similar vibe to Rebel Wilson, just a little sweeter. There is an intimate number of main characters. There is this unique cozy way in how the "Ivy’s Bed & Breakfast" was presented. You would simply want to try and spend a night in the place after watching it.

We love that the film presented a realistic and imperfect world that we usually don't see in films. They tackle low and high points in the lives of different characters and a variety of how they deal with these challenges. The actors and actresses were just right for their respective roles. 

Definitely, "Relative Happiness" is not your usual rom-com movie.
