The Upside Of Anger

3 out of 10 A good film
Ciaran from Dublin, 23 Oct 2007
Don't be fooled into thinking this is a chick-flick (the bottom rung of the movie world!), this has more to offer than that. Joan Allen leads the cast as a woman who is beaten - her husband has left her for a younger (Swedish!) model and her four daughters (what a nitemare) are all giving her issues. So she drinks a lot. Then Costner butts in to be her drinking buddy and he slowly meshes himself with the 5 women's confused lives. Quite enjoyable with some funny gags thrown in too.

3 out of 10 The Upside of Anger.
Jacqueline from Dublin, 04 Oct 2007
Kevin Costner and Jane Allen star in this very good movie about a woman who becomes enraged when her husband disapears - believeing him to have run off to sweden with the secretary. Enjoyed Costner in the role of non sobriety! - without the angelic image for a change but a more human side. Both Allen and Costner give a good performance in this movie and it is definately worth a viewing.

3 out of 10 Upside..
Chris from Meath, 02 Jun 2009
..is that Costner is great in this..Joan Allen (who is generally great!) has a role that is too contrived and irritating..great twist to the story at the end but film doesn't really know if it wants to be a comedy or a tragedy..it's kinda neither...watchable, but not a keeper..

What's it about....
Sometimes what tears us apart helps us put it back together. Starring Joan Allen and Kevin Costner, The Upside Of Anger, spans three years of a woman's life following her husband's sudden disappearance. Terry Wolfmeyer (Allen), an affluent suburban Detroit wife and mother, goes from a paragon of sweetness to a volcano of rage in the wake of her husband's desertion; she thinks he has jetted off to Sweden with his Swedish secretary. Barely holding it together for her...
